I predict Serena will be #1 after the US Open!

This may have been discussed already but if Serena wins gold in Beijing, she will move up to #3 only approx. 9 points behind Ivanovic for #2. She has qtr final points to defend in NY and with the way she's playing she's a good pick to move beyond the qtrs. Should she do that she shoud more than make up the 100 or so points she'll need to overtake Jankovic. Of course we'll have to wait and see what Jankovic does but I'm more confident about Serena going deep in NY that Jankovic. Any thoughts?

Re: I predict Serena will be #1 after the US Open!

Actually Serena will be 8 points behind Ana for the #1 spot if she wins Bejing....

She should be #1 post the Open if Ana keeps playing poorly, but Ana's not defending much att he open.....

Re: I predict Serena will be #1 after the US Open!

Is Jankovic going to lose her points from last years Toronto after this week? That makes it even more certain that Serena will rise to #1 should she do well their! I have no confidence in Ivanovic's thumb or Jankovic's overall fitness.

Re: I predict Serena will be #1 after the US Open!

If that doesn't happen after the USO, Serena will certainly be nr1 at the end of the year or early next year.

She doesn't have a lot to defend

I actually think that she will be 8 points behind the NR 1 instead of NR 2.
Cause I don't see a Serena - Jelena final happen here.

If Ana won't play US Open or is less than 100% there, then there's a high possibilty that Serena will be nr 1.

Not that I'm glad about it, but everything is better than Sveta or Jelena.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Re: I predict Serena will be #1 after the US Open!

So, if Serena wins the US Open, will she then be Number 1?

Re: I predict Serena will be #1 after the US Open!

If she can keep healthy then she has a very strong shot at becoming the year end #1 aswell

Uhm, talking about Dinara.
If she wins Olympics, US Open and won't face Ana in the final. Then she will be the new nr 1.


If Serena gets Silver now and wins US Open, she will be nr 1 whatever happens.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova
