Ivanovic is not yet the real #1

After RG Justine still has 4695 points which gives her a lead of almost 500 points over Ivanovic. Currently Justine is still the #1 player in the world. At Wimbledon it is very likely that Ivanovic will lose her false #1 ranking and someone else will become the true #1. It's very probable that Ivanovic will never reach #1 after this, and she will go down in history as the only player that was kind of #1 but not really.

Re: Ivanovic is not yet the real #1

I agree, she doesn't feel like a real one to me but she still is #1. Can't take that away from her.

I believe on Monday she's going to be the world #1, so your views don't match up with reality.

Re: Ivanovic is not yet the real #1

Why does this girl get soooo much crap around here? I don't like her at all, but all these threads make me want to become one of her biggest defenders. Justine is retired and not in the rankings anymore Leave Ana alone, seriously

Re: Ivanovic is not yet the real #1

I think you'll actually find that Steffi is still #1! Steffi has been #1 all this time, and everyone who's been '#1' wasn't #1 really

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: Ivanovic is not yet the real #1

The thing is, nobody is a true #1 with Henin's retirement.
Maria isn't truly back there yet, Serena isn't convincing enough. Venus is Slams or nothing. The others are way too far to be considered real #1.

Anyways, she got a Slamm wich means much more than #1. Ferrero was #1. Nobody remembers that.

Re: Ivanovic is not yet the real #1

Ana has the best record in GS. Better than Maria, better than Vee. So she deserves her rank.

BUT I don't consider her as the best though and I think that's what you mean because being world number one and being wordl best is totally different.

She's hated for various reasons, some of them being the following:

1.) Beat your favorite player.

2.) Stiff competition with Sharapova in the looks, endorsements (soon to be), and "IT" categories.

3.) Threat on all surfaces, something that Maria, Venus, Jelena, and others aren't really. Only Serena is a threat on all surfaces and she failed at this FO.

4.) Seems too nice/humble to be a beautiful, successful, slam-winning No. 1.

5.) Her on-court idiosyncrasies: fistpumps, "Ajde"s, etc.

6.) Her pressers: exciting, amazing, great, etc.

7.) Her ethnicity.

If you are so tough to post it now, then also admit that you were wrong when Ana 'truly' becomes NR 1.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Yes, if Ana's #1 ranking becomes real then I will have no choice but to accept it.

Re: Ivanovic is not yet the real #1

This thread is not about Ana "feeling" like the number one, it's cold numbers saying that Henin still is #1. When Henin's Wimbledon SF points come off, the person on top of the rankings will be a real #1 and not a false one.

Re: Ivanovic is not yet the real #1

I don't feel as if Ana is the real number one yet.

Her game is still so raw and needs to be harnessed effectively.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

You accepting it or not has nothing to do with it being the REALITY.
