If Justine were to comaback now.. would she be reinstated as world #1?

Obviously even the non-participation in RG due to her abrupt retirement she still has a lead over current #1 Ana by roughly 400 points.

If she comeback lets before Wimbledon, will she be reinstated as the #1 player in the world?
Does the rules allow that?
Would it be fair to Ana and the rest...?

No if she plays like she was playing before the retirement.

I don't think so. A lot of the WTA officials are so pissed at her. It didn't help that she skipped the ITF awards dinner last week to go to a Yannick Noah concert.

You can't just quit and then come back a month later. You can take a break and then come back a month later, but Henin said she was quitting.

I think they'd make her work her ranking back up again if she pulled that stunt.

I think - yes.
Ranking points don't lie.
If she came back everybody would have to live with that and that means - say good bye to their current ranking.

Yeah, with those bagels that she was eating, it wouldn´t be fair to Ana, Maria and all the othre player that Henin would come back to number 1!
Also, once you quit, you have to start from zero

Everybody is entitled to change their minds!
And also, by the rule, she still has a lot of points in the 52 weeks rolling more that the current #1.

I have an idea, i will make this a poll...

I don't think so but if they do she totally deserves it but in my opinion she'll never come back. I'm not gonna lie when she retired I was so happy but the game just feels so different so empty I mean she was so good last year that you'll remember her for the rest of this year.

Anyways I became a fan of Serena at the Australian Open 05 semis so I don't think if I'm wrong but didn't the WTA give her a special seeding, #1 in 2004, when she came back from surgery??

Yeah, I think they gave her the #1 seed at Wimbledon in 2004 despite her ranking but Wimbledon is different.

I don't think the WTA would reinstate her ranking. She is an adult and I'm sure she did not enter into her decision lightly, if she made the wrong choice the other players shouldn't have to suffer. She could have taken a break, an extended break but she thought about it and she decided to retire. She's a professional and I don't think she would expect her ranking to be handed back to her, maybe working her way back up the rankings would be a new challenge, something that was missing before she quit.

Of course, she can change her mind, but that's why many suggested that she take a break. A break is not permanent. A retirement is intended to be permanent.

I'm not a fan of hers, but I hope she comes back some day because she's good competition for my favorites. Still, once you retire, you give up any points you had at the time you quit. She'll have to start her ranking from scratch if she returns.

The difference is that Martina has no points in the 52 weeks rolling..
Justine's is different, she retired #1 and even till now, a month later, she still has a sizeable lead in points if you count the last 52 weeks rolling over the the current #1.

Honestly i can't still get over this fantasy....
I have this since she annouoned her retirement:
"She was practicing in grass all the clay court season for preparation on her comeback at Wimbledon, by virtue of a wildcard she played in SW19 and finally winning the title!"
"Her retirement was a back-story, all along she was planning a grass assault just when her rivals were thinking she is no longer a threat, an element of surprise catching them off-guard!"
