Question Will Henin still be #1 come the USO???

After today it asured me that if she can't get passed a third round on her beloved clay then she has ready begun to plumit. She won't be number one by the USO. She won't defend Roland Garros, Eastbourne title and definetly not her Wimbledon SF and her Rogers Cup title isn't looking to be defended either. She might not even be #1 come the olympics.

I think she'll just about fend off the other players until then, as players such as Ivanovic also have a lot of points to defend over the summer and Henin's gap is healthy. I think she will lose the number one ranking by the end of the USO but obviously anything at all could happen. She could keep it until long after the USO or she could lost it before Wimbledon!

Yes she will she's got a sizeable lead, if she fails to defend her RG title, she can always count on her pledged superdelegates.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

No I don't think she will. I don't see how she can get it together in time. It hinges on how she does at RG, unless it's a SF or better then I will say she can get things together. If not then she will be dropping points left, right and centre.

Not if she doesn^t start winning some tournaments soon! Is she still playing Rome? If she is healthy, she should. Maybe she can play her way back into form. If her knee is still injured she should rest till Paris, then have an operation if needed.

She will lose after USA open,I kinda feel sorry for her.She earned that ranking last year and even if she loses the ranking she can come back in 2009.I would rather have Henin as no.1 than Ana or pova.

No! I think Justine will lose her #1 ranking by the end of Wimbledon at the latest. Not sure who'll take over though, possibly Serena if she keeps dominating like she has been!!

I wish but unfortunately Serena still has a way to go, though if she continues her great form it won't be too long!

Hopefully Jelena beaks through and seizes the #1 spot.

I actually wouldn't mind Ana taking over the #1 spot, as long as its not Henin or pova. She can keep the seat warm til Serena takes back over this summer.
