#1? Who?

With all the furore of JJ being crowned #1 I was wondering who people believe is a "deserving" #1.

Contenders:


Ana Ivanovic
- well she was at the helm of the game previously. But her reign as #1 was shit, to put it bluntly. And she is sucking as much as JJ right now, only without the drama. So why does she deserve it that much more? Two Slam Finals and a Slam, I hear you say. True...but she is still a rather shoddy #1, the way she plays sometimes is just ...I don't think a #1 should be like that, personally.

Svetlana Kuznetsova - I'm a fan. But no, just no. I really don't want her to get anywhere near that...she does not deserve it at all.

Serena Williams - legitimate contender. But Slam performances?

Venus Williams - Wimbledon and...?

Marion Bartoli - definite contender. She did well at Stanford and bravely skipped the Olympics. She is probably favourite.

Larche de Brito - If only she had come a couple of years earlier.

Justine Henin - should we just pretend she never retired?!

*Ye, I know the real sages of this forum are going to wade in with "Whoever amassed the most ranking points deserve it"...but that is schmuck, so don't bother.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wonder are lost. The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring. Renewed shall be blade that was broken. The crownless again shall be king

Re: #1? Who?

Wimbledon and...?

I'm not saying she's dominance at every tournament she plays, but currently she has a semifinals at the US Open and Bangalore, quarterfinals in Miami, Rome, and Melbourne.

Let them eat cake.

Re: #1? Who?

You missed Hantuchova.

I think the WTA should just poll TennisForum each week to determine who is going to be #1. Seems logical enough to me, certainly as much as the current system employed.
