The truth is, we have been spoiled by our great past champions. When Graf, Seles, Navratilova and Evert were ranked #1, they won slams and several other tournaments during the year, and held a winning head to head record over trhe majority of the top 10.
Today, the way they do the points system, the #1 ranking only indicates who is the best over all performer, not the best player. In my opinion Venus is the true #1 player, I don't care how many tournaments she did not play.
Venus won 2 slams, 6 events overall, and holds a winning head to head record over all the other top players ... nobody else does.
