Ana and Jelena #1: Do you think they want to be without winning a GS?

Well, now that Maria is out, Ana or Jelena can become #1 by reaching the final and winning the championship. However, they could also be #1 if they reach the final and lose to anyone besides Kuznetsova.

I heard from a commentator that Jelena doesn't want to be #1 if she doesn't have at least 1 Grand Slam. I have no idea about Ana. What do you guys think? Have Jelena and Ana said anything about this before?

For me, yes, it'd be nice to be #1, but without a Grand Slam, it would feel a little bit odd.

they wouldn't care and they shouldn't. You are #1 because You are the most consistant [layer over a perios of a year - not one tournament

That's true, but they will come under a lot of slack even so. Look at Kuznetsova when she was #2 last year because she made a gazillion finals yet had only won a T2. In reality, it's the slams they'll be remembered for (unless they do a Kournikova ) outside of the fans. I'm sure they'd rather win a slam and never be #1 rather than be the #1 player who didn't win one.

I will always love Daniela but sometimes it's nice to support players who actually win - so thanks Kim!

Re: Ana and Jelena #1: Do you think they want to be without winning a GS?

Two weeks ago in Belgrade (for Serbian media) Jelena explicitely said she would like to be #1 only if she deserved it by winning a slam.

I haven't heard anything like that coming from Ana's camp, but from all I know, I would expect exactly the same sentiment.

It'll be most likely Ivanovic and she's gonna win FO in my eyes

Rest in Peace Bally!

This is WTA #1, it really shouldn't matter THAT much.

Well for Ana it would be OK, but Jelena

Re: Ana and Jelena #1: Do you think they want to be without winning a GS?

I read somewhere that Ana said that she would like to win FO more when asked to choose between FO title and NO 1 rank.....
She also said that there is much time ahead of her for becoming NO 1 but GS title is very important for her!!!

A fan of
Ana Ivanovic AJDE !

Also supporting:
Kim Clijsters
Makiri,Elena Dementieva

After Rome Jelena told that she must win GS and then become #1 not without GS
She don't need #1 without GS title

I think both would rather be hoisting up the RG title at the end of this week rather than being ranked the new #1 when the new rankings come out the following week.

Either way, being ranked #1 is still an incredible accomplishment in itself, so they should both be happy either way.

Jelena Dokic.Vera Zvonareva.Tatiana Golovin.Mary Pierce.Monica Seles.Martina Hingis.Anna Kournikova

Re: Ana and Jelena #1: Do you think they want to be without winning a GS?

it would be good if the winner of this slam would take the number one ranking... jj, ana or sveta would be decent number 1's if they win the title..

Whoever finishes the tournament as no.1 deserves it Ivanovic, Jankovic and Kuznetsova all have had good results in the last 52 weeks.

Weren't Clijsters and Mauresmo number 1's before winning a slam?
