Martina HINGIS still #.1

As you all know, for the past 8-12 months The #.1 at WTA Ranking is been changed from one to another player.

Hingis -> Davenport -> Capriati -> Venus -> Serena (new)

For me, Martina HINGIS is still #.1

We'll see If The Power Players can catching up Martina HINGIS for (Weeks at #.1)


Proof as weeks at #.1 WTA Ranking (ONLY for Active Players)

1. Martina HINGIS (209 weeks)
2. Monica SELES (178 weeks)
3. Lindsay DAVENPORT (37 weeks)
4. Jennifer CAPRIATI (18 weeks)
5. Arantxa Sanchez VICARIO (12 weeks)
5. VENUS Williams (12 weeks)
7. SERENA Williams (1 week - new)

The Williams are with two so that won't be easy.

At least Martina HINGIS is The BEST of The Active Players on The WTA Tour (She still #.4 Behind Graf, Navratilova and Evert)

I can't believe it... you are just delusional. She is off the tour right now, and you're telling me she is the best?

Whatever.

Go, Martina!

Perhaps I misunderstood, but the point was to celebrate Martina's acheivement?

How did I know it would be turned into some sort of useless debate?

I'm not sure who should be #1. For now, Serena is #1 based on the ranking... But she hasn't proved anything and to defend the #1 crown is far more difficult than getting there...

For me, Martina Hingis is definitely the smartest active player on tour. She doesn't rely on her power to win a game, but she applies a strategy/tactic. So in this area, she is #1

For power game, definitely Williams Sisters are #1 (co-leader )

Smile... When you do, it may change someone's day


=Good luck to my favourite players: Mirjana Lucic, Elena Dementieva, Li Na, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Vera Zvonareva, Zheng Jie, Venus Williams =

Katulampa - Do yo think she would trade all her weeks at#1 for Serena's French Open title?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

volcana, that is an interesting question. Being #1 was always so important to Marti. Who is greater the player who wins 6 slams over her career but never get to #1? Or the one who holds that ranking for the equivalent of 4 years, but only wins 5 slams (of course I hope Marti wins many more)? Is the french open important enough to her to surrender what she perceives as her birth right? To never be recognised technically as superior to all others of the time?
