Re: Henin Posed To Surpass Davenport in Weeks at #1

Yeah she probably will pass Lindsay but has got a lot of catching up to do to reach Monica! And I well didn't know Hingis held it for 209 weeks lol Learn something new everyday!

Re: Henin Posed To Surpass Davenport in Weeks at #1

I don't think she'll reach Seles's mark, but hopefully she'll break the 100 week milestone now.

Justine Henin - Maria Kirilenko - Stephanie Dubois - Anna Chakvetadze - Aleksandra Wozniak - Tatiana Golovin
Flavia Pennetta - Caroline Wozniacki - Marie-Eve Pelletier - Alicia Molik - Dominika Cibulkova - Severine Bremond
Su-Wei Hsieh - Tsvetana Pironkova - Elena Vesnina - Alize Cornet - Ashley Harkleroad - Monica Niculescu

Re: Henin Posed To Surpass Davenport in Weeks at #1

She's almost sure to surpass Davenport, especially if she wins the US Open tomorrow. But Seles, she's still far away. Justine could do it, but there are still a lot of tournaments to be won to reach that.

Go Brazilian girls!

Re: Henin Posed To Surpass Davenport in Weeks at #1

Henin has a lead of over 1100 points over #2. If Kuznetsova wins tomorrow, she can cut the lead to 800, but Henin basically only has the Tour Championships and the semis in Paris to defend between now and Miami next year, while Kuznetsova has two wins coming off right after the Open and has played over 17 tournaments besides. After Kuznetsova come Jelena (who can only add the difference between 110, her 17th best, and whatever points she earns in any tournament from this point on) and Sharapova (defending big indoor points from last year). If Henin wins tomorrow, her lead goes up to 1400, with no points to defend in Australia. I'd say Henin's going to be #1 for a good long while whatever happens tomorrow.
