SIX present or former #1's in the top ten

Three of them 22 or younger.
Everyone with at least 3 GS singles titles.

Serena
Venus
Jenn
Monica
Lindsay
Martina

I say, it's grown a bit crowded here at the top of the mountain.

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.

No great surprise there. These 6 players are all averaging over 200 points per tournament. Next closest is Kim, at about 150.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Interesting... of the 11 women that have played in the Open Era and reached the number 1 spot during the Open Era, more than half of them are still competing on the tour, in singles. The competition has more depth now for sure...

VENUS
Serena
Lindsay Jelena Maria

Mary : Monica : Svetlana : Sania : Jennifer : Amelie
Roddick : Grosjean : David : Djokovic

We've had five #1's that past 12 MONTHS. And yet they're all multi-GS winners. The top of the tour is deeper, but not into double digits.
