Re: On a more positive note: Venus back in top 5!!!

I thought if Hantuchova won she would move to #5?

Exclamation Re: On a more positive note: Venus back in top 5!!!

She is number six, not seven as the AP is reporting today. But she has a great chance to move into the top five by the French Open.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams
Vania King, Sloane Stephens
Michael Joseph Jackson|1958-2009|RIP King of Music

Re: On a more positive note: Venus back in top 5!!!

TOP5 means nothing in Tennis. TOP4 is important term (b/c GS draws) and Venus have some chances to overtake Jelena Jankovic and Svetlana Kuznetsova. If she overtake only one of TOP5 players that means nothing for Venus (#5 and #6 seeds at slam draws have same status).


Next most important date about ranking is RG draw (seeds).

Before Roland Garros (deffending points) :


1 HENIN 6680 (tier-II 3 titles and tier-I final and SF)
2 IVANOVIC 4126 (tier-I title and final)
3 KUZNETSOVA 3760 (3 tier-I finals, 1 tier-II final with 2 SF)
4 JANKOVIC 3700 (2 tier-I titles and 2 tier-II SF)
5 SHARAPOVA 3256 (nothing special)
6 V.WILLIAMS 2720 (tier-I SF and tier-III title)
7 CHAKVETADZE 2720 (tier-I and tier-II SF)
8 HANTUCHOVA 2677 (tier-I title and SF and tier-II SF)
9 BARTOLI 2133 (nothing special)
10 S.WILLIAMS 2022 (tier-I title)
11 DEMENTIEVA 1985 (tier-I SF and QF and tier-III title)
12 PETROVA 1912 (tier-II final and tier-I QF)
13 GOLOVIN 1852 (tier-II title and SF and tier-I 2QF)
14 SCHNYDER 1756 (tier-I SF and QF)
15 VAIDISOVA 1667 (nothing special)
...
18 MAURESMO 1453 (tier-II title, final and SF)
...
20 SZAVAY 1303 (nothing special)
...
44 DAVENPORT 605 (nothing)


POINTS:
tier-I: title (atleast 430), Final (atleast 300), SF (atleast 195), QF (atleast 110)
tier-II: title (atleast 275), Final (atleast 190), SF (atleast 125)


I use term "atleast" because points from tier-I Miami and Indian Wells or tier-II Dubai is not like for usual tier-I or tier-II tournaments.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

What Tier I SF did Venus reach? I thought she onlyn reached the third round in Miami.

OK. Thank you.

Does anyone know if Venus plans on playing in Charleston this year? I didn't see anything on the website saying that she was.
