But, doesn't monica has a lot of points to defend b/n now and US open; I thought it was during this time last year that she beat serena, martina (x2) and jenn. Meanwhile, I don't remember jenn doing that great during this stretch except for being finalist at pilot pen and canadien open. So, jenn could always improve.
Here's Monica's record including the us open last year
San Diego, Ca---Finals
Here is Jenn's record......
They both have a lot to defend! Monica has one more tournament to defend then Jennifer but Jennifer has clearly said her goal is not to win smaller tournaments but to peak for the Slams?? So it should be close! Monica is only defending a R16 from the US Open and Jenn has to get back to the SemiFinals.
thanks, infiniti and rocketa. So, if we consider their records before the US-open, it appears monica has a lot more to defend than jenn; monica also had more quality points, I believe, from beating a number of top players. So, I don't think monica will catch up with jenn in the rankings before the USO.
