If Serena only plays the Slams this year....

I'm just SAYING that if Serena only chooses to play the Grand Slams this year, will she end the year #1 most likely? Seeing as she will gain how many points for the French Open and Wimbledon and another handful at the US Open......


Is it possible?

She would need to win them all...basically.

She will play more than the slams however. She's already played more than the slams.

Hmm, interesting question. Does anyone know, theoretically, if she only played the Slams, what would need to be her best showing to end at number 1? Winning them all?

Re: If Serena only plays the Slams this year....

possibility of #1 if she wins all four, or maybe 3 and 1 semi IF the others have similar years to last year. Winning all 4 would give her 4000+ pts, higher than what justine had last year to finish year end #1. However, Sharapova has about 4000 pts now, and she could continue to add to it by having better results, same w/ justine.

In theory it could be possible because she would gain sufficient points without losing many at all.....but it would also greatly depend on how many points the top ranked players would defend.

One, she's going to play more than just the slams, for sure.

Two, if anyone could do it, it would be Serena.

Ouch! As I have witnessed, usually Serena haters can only have their fun for so long. The rule of thumb is, never count anyone out (not just the Williamses) like that. And this is not a really nice way to start your life on this board, buddy. So wish you luck in the future if you post like that.

No, she wouldn't have enough points. She'd be in the top 5 for sure, though.

If she won all 4 in 2006, she would have finished the yaer comfortably in number 1 spot. However, this year could be different with some of the top players possibly receiving more points than last year.

Re: If Serena only plays the Slams this year....

sometimes I wish they would only play the 4 slams and maybe a couple of smaller tournaments. I only get excited and watch tennis during the slams.
