Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again?

Serena doesn't play enough and gets injured too often to be number 1 again. Same with Venus, expect Venus doesn't play well enough on a consistent basis to get back to number 1. As one gets older, consistency tends to become harder to come by. You just can't produce that winning form day-in and day-out all the time. Youth is a beautiful thing.

She probably won't be #1 ever again, but that doesn't mean she won't have an illustrious career until her retirement.

Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again

I think the players who cared most about being #1 the past few years were the ones who couldn't dominate the slams.

I'm sure Justine likes being #1, but the fact that she takes a lot of breaks tells me she cares more about being healthy for slams.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again

I don´t know anything can happen if Serena stays healthy for a full season. She´s 25 so the nr.1 ranking is not impossible for her to get. I would rather see her win 2+ slams a year tough.

Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again

Serena doesnt play enough to get back to #1. But i really dont think that she cares. She just wants to win in the few tournaments that she does play in!

Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again

She doesn't play enough to be number 1 and honestly the only way she'll be number 1 again is to dominate in just about every tournamnent she plays so I don't mind her being number 1 because that doesnt mean you are winning slams (Davenport, Mauresmo for a while) as long as she adds 3+ more slams before she retires i'm happy and i'm sure she will be too

Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again

She could be. more tournaments+far less injuries=No.1 probably..

But I think Justine will keep the spot long enough

Simona Halep

Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again

I'll say this: If either Serena or Venus win the USO, and either win the YEC, or reach the finals, and Justine doesn't, and Justine STILL keeps her number one ranking... then rankings lose all meaning to me.

Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again

I don't think she will either. She doesn't play enough to, but oh well. We all know all she cares about is the Slams + Miami. Maybe one year she'll play a full schedule... I can dream.

Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again

She's still capable of winning Grand Slams. That's way more important than the #1 ranking.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

Re: at some point i think Serena will never be #1 again

she wouldnt deserve it either unless she wins all the slams in one season. i dislike serena for choosing only to play some tournaments and then showing up for the big titles. you dont have jetlags, you're fit and mentally fine. its so unfair to the rest of the tour. alright when injuries are involved its ok. but she wouldnt care either way so. i dont know. its just *"%*ç/ç&(*/
