Slam Winners- Only #1's Need to Apply
I am a Jankovic fan, but enjoy seeing Serena play too. I know some people feel she was a weak number one, but if she wins this, she fits the trend. With the exception of Myskina and Kunetszova, who only have a career high of #2, every slam winner from 1999 on has been #1 at one point in their career. The other interesting thing is that of the other finalists in the same span, Bartoli is the only finalist never to have been in the top 5(Safina too, but i think she moves up this week).
