Re: Select 2008 WTA TOP5 players after 1st Half of Season

BTW i forget to explain one detail about this Poll.
This Poll needs 12 options and maximum for this forum is 10 so i must to delete two options. I not present two options which i mark like "less logical":

Option #11: #1 Ana Ivanovic , #2 Maria Sharapova , #3 Jelena Jankovic , #4 Serena Williams , #5 Elena Dementieva

Option #12: #1 Maria Sharapova , #2 Ana Ivanovic , #3 Serena Williams , #4 Jelena Jankovic , #5 Dinara Safina



Problems with "logic" in this two options is about how to value GS results. Option where is Ana ahead Maria and Jelena ahead Serena prefer that GS results is by far most important when we judge and Elena have less sucess at slams so far in 2008 than Dinara or Sveta. In opposite case, in option where Maria ahead Ana and Serena ahead Jelena where is obviously W/L ratio have very big influence - i delete option with Dinara Safina, b/c she is player with less consistency and (much) worse W/L ratio than Elena or Sveta in first half of 2008 season.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
