Re: How much more does serena need to win to be number 1?

The ranking system counts the best 17 tournament results only (including the mandatory GS points and Miami), it doesn't matter if you play every single tournament.

Justine has more than 3000 points over Serena right now. A Tier I roughly weighs 4XX points, and a GS weighs 1000 points.

Serena has 2 Grand Slams to collect loads of points Also the whole clay season. The whole indoor season. She can do better at the US Open and play well over the US Summer hard court series.
She'll be in the top 10 by no time hopefully

Well she'll have to hope Justine falters big time at the slams and she wins them all!.... 'Cause we all know Serena's gonna play the minimal amount of tournaments required It is possible though, maybe her and Justine could have a world number 1 shoot off at the YEC How exciting would that be!

I would think Justine has tons of Grand Slam points to defend since she was in the finals of all 4!
Serena has not points to defend at all and go nowhere but UP UP UP.

Re: How much more does serena need to win to be number 1?

I'd say as a rough guess if Serena won Charleston, RG, Wimbledon, the US Open and whatever other tournies she might possibly play in between, she'd be right there at #1. Charleston may be almost in the bag at this point with the key withdrawals!

Re: How much more does serena need to win to be number 1?

I just hope Serena doesn't go off chasing points for the sake of rankings. She just needs to play the slams and key events, take care of herself and build on her legend. The rankings are HIGHLY overrated, imho.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

Re: How much more does serena need to win to be number 1?

She doesn't defend points until early August, and she doesn't defend many.

If she has a good clay season (by Serena standards, that's a title on clay and deep at the French, maybe a win) and plays at her standard level on grass, she's back in the top five. I can see her being in the top 5 at year end with ten events to her name.

Everybody says that when their favorite isn't #1, you know.

"He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord." -- Proverbs 18:22

"Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." -- Herb Brooks

"A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life." -- Muhammad Ali

i'm in agreement, rankings are highly overrated. just focus on winning and the rankings will take care of themselves.

With 10 events in her name, I'll be realllllllllly shocked if she doesn't top the rank.

Well this year you get more points off GSs and Tier 1 so Justine doesnt have too many points to defend off her finals..

SANIA JUSTINE ELENAD

Martina Hingis Ana Ivanovic Myskina Safarova

When I have my goals set, I always attain them- Justine
