Who will be #1 after Wimbledon?

Current standings:

1- Ana Ivanovic 4222
2- Maria Sharapova 3806
3- Jelena Jankovic 3755
4- Svetlana Kuznetsova 3565

Points to defend at Birmingham/Eastbourne/'s Hertogenbosch/Wimbledon:

Ana Ivanovic: 484
4222 - 484 = 3738
Playing: Eastbourne, Wimbledon

Maria Sharapova: 240
3806 - 240 = 3566
Playing: Wimbledon

Jelena Jankovic: 210
3755 - 210 = 3545
Playing: Wimbledon

Svetlana Kuznetsova: 250
3565 - 250 = 3315
Playing: Eastbourne, Wimbledon


Now it seems that it all depends on their respective performances at Wimbledon. If one of those four wins she'll probably get to the top (or stay there, Ana ).

Re: Who will be #1 after Wimbledon?

Sharapova only has 4th round and 3rd points to defend at the next 2 majors. Then nothing after the USO until the YEC.
So she has a clean run, if keeps playing like she has all year, 30-3.

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

Re: Who will be #1 after Wimbledon?

I think it'll be Maria who replaces Henin as current #1 after Wimbledon

Re: Who will be #1 after Wimbledon?

Right after Wimbledon I'd say Ivanovic, but I'd say Maria after the US Open.

Re: Who will be #1 after Wimbledon?

If Ana gets a good score at Eastbourne and Maria won't win Wimbledon, then there's a good chance she will stay at 1.
Not that worried about Jelena and Sveta on grass.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Maria, without a doubt. She should do more than a round better at Wimbledon than Ana for sure.

Re: Who will be #1 after Wimbledon?

I want Ana to remain, but if Maria wins Wimbledon, she´ll probably be ranked number 1!

Between Wimbledon and USO Maria has more points to defend (San Diego, Los Angeles : 555pts) than Ana (275)or even Jelena I think (not sure).
If she can't get the #1 back with Wimbledon, Ana will probably stay n1 all the summer.

Re: Who will be #1 after Wimbledon?

Depends on the draw. Venus/Serena could knock Maria out in the quarters, while Ana could avoid Serena, Venus AND Maria which could give her a clear path to the final.

Or Ana could lose in the second round and Maria could win the title. I just don't think it's a definite that Maria will be #1.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
