Anyone tired of Justine Henin at the top of rankings?

Right now clearly she doesn´t deserve to be holding the number 1 spot, it´s either Serena or Maria the best players at the moment... Also she spent a lot of weeks at the top spot, it´s time for another player to become the number one! I´m also wondering when she´s gonna lose the number 1, maybe after the US Open, since Maria doesn´t have a lot to defend...

Re: Anyone tired of Justine Henin at the top of rankings?

As of now, she's still the holder of the French Open, US Open, and YEC. As well as 6 other titles. I can't think of anyone with a better past 52 weeks, and hence more deserving.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Anyone tired of Justine Henin at the top of rankings?

Do you want to pretend last year didn't happen?
Even this year, Justine has 2 titles. She beat Sveta and Ana in Sydney.
Then she got to Sharapova in Melbourne. No one was playing at Maria's level at the AO.
You want to toss her out for her results since Antwerp? And pretend she's not holding 2 majors?

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

This year will be just like 2004, after having a big year in 2003, her game will fall apart for the rest of the season...

Re: Anyone tired of Justine Henin at the top of rankings?

She will lose her Nr.1 Position sooner or later ... I think right before Wimbledon ... she'll lose early in Roland Garros and will not defend Eastbourne ... right now Justine still deserves it .. she holds 2 Majors and the YEC .. I don't get how a Davenport fan can ask such a questio???

Not me. Look at it this way, instead of comparing themselves to better players and saying, how disappointing, they could be saying, well at least my favourite didn't to THAT.
As soon as she retires she will be forgotten immediately, and someone else will take her place. That's why she still plays, she knows some of us still love her anyway.

Dumb thread.

Of course she deserves to be #1. She has 2 Slams on her ranking for gods sake! If you want to see the 2008 rankings, then look at the race, where you'll find Justine is not #1.

Re: Anyone tired of Justine Henin at the top of rankings?

Well.... I just don't think any player is really playing better than justine...
of course, she is crappy nonetheless, but she lost to the same person who serena lost to..
and maria...welll... she is MIA in Red Clay...

Actually, where are the top 5?
they all lost in berlin!!!!!

They all have good streaks and bad losses... Everyone plays like their is really no clear #1 right now, So why don't we just settle on the numbers...
