Does anyone else find it hysterical that Yahoo is not acknowledging Jelena as #1?

I was just on the Yahoo! Tennis page and they still Have Ana as number one. Did they not get the memo?

Yahoo tennis is one of the worst sites to check tennis anything. Their articles are utter crap, usually full of errors and wrong information. I wouldn't worry too much about it. With all the anti-Jelena Number one threads that have been posted over the last couple of days, trust me- we ALL know.

Yeah, I noticed today. But it's not shocking really... they don't notice anything. They don't update rankings regularly.

Why bother changing it since next week she won´t be number 1 anymore?
The most funny part is that they changed the men´s rankings (Aug 11), but not the women´s! hahahaha

A couple months ago, according to the Yahoo rankings, Andy Murray used to be top 15 in the women's rankings.

That's one fugly ass woman.

Jankovic is the WORST number one in the history of women`s tennis she has NEVER reached a slam final has NOT won a slam yet she is no.1 that`s a DISGRACE. The WTA ranking system needs to be changed ASAP. I think Henin`s retirement really hurt the tour to be honest even though I am NOT a fan of Henin. It is sad that such an inferior player like Jankovic can reach number one it makes Women`s Tennis look weak. Yes, Jankovic fans will say she just followed the rules but NOBODY in the MEDIA sees this flake as a legitimate number one NOT until she starts to produce a grand slam title and back it up.

From the same news source that once listed Andy Murray as world #12 on the WTA, this is actually an improvement.

I'm already sick of all the nonsense surrounding her 'reign'. The girl is 1st in the race and rankings. She deserves it. The numbers don't lie. It isn't her fault that at present she is the best of a 'bad bunch'.

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.
