Justine is the most deserving year-end #1 since...

...since Justine herself topped the rankings at the end of 2003.

That being said, Amelie and Maria would have been worthy of this honour as well. I think the year-end #1 should have won at least one major and have strong slam results. I think that Davenport's great and was worthy of the ranking in 1998, 1999 and 2000 but in 2004 and 2005 she didn't win any major titles, not even Indian Wells, Miami or the YEC.

the only thing that she deserves is face wipes to rid herself of the red rash constantly around her mouth and a good slap.

Oh, you're just projecting your disdain about the state of British tennis which has been in the toilet for so many decades.

Re: Justine is the most deserving year-end #1 since...

If Amelie beats her in another big final tomorrow, there is no way Justine is a deserving #1.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

The outcome of tomorrow's match is only for bragging rights because Justine Henin-Hardenne has already claimed the YE #1 ranking.

Whether you think its "deserving" or not, its reality and it will forever be recorded in tennis history that way.

All Justine had to do was show-up in Madrid and Amelie's chances at #1 were all but gone. Nothing was going to stop Justine's march towards tennis history. Not red-hot Petrova or Sharapova, or has-been Martina Hingis.

Stop with the denial. You are only hurting yourself.

I don't care who the ranking says is #1, Amelie won as many majors as the whole rest of the tour combined.

Amelie wins 50% of the majors, but only makes it to the finals of 41% of the tournaments she played in 2006.

Justine wins 25% of the majors, and makes it to the finals of 69% of the tournaments she played in 2006.

Bitch, please.

Justine has won more matches and has a better winning percentage.

Re: Justine is the most deserving year-end #1 since...

I would say the same thing if Sharapova won today.
Both Justine and Maria would rather have Amelie's year.

Totally agree! Hoping Justine will win the title tomorrow! On the other hand, Momo also had a great year but I think Justine deserves it!

The no.1 ranked player is not necessarily the best player of the year as we've all seen numerous times in recent years .

Congrats to Justine.

Justine has won more matches and has a better winning percentage.
This is absolute ludicrous. JHH has had a great year, but ANYONE who argues that her year has been better than Amelie's is ridiculous. 2 slams beat 1 and Amelie leads the head-to-head. I am certain that if JHH had the chance to take Amelie's year, even with the bad losses in smaller tournaments, she would.
