Why is JJ no,1 in the Race to the YEC?

So Serena is who needs to pass her to become no.1 at the end of the year..and not the other way around.

JJ is #1 in the race because she plays consistent tennis all year.
Serena is not that bad too.

Because she has more points than anyone else?

She plays consistently, but also plays far more than some other top players. It's good to see her dedication, but she could get burned out if she continues to play this rigorous of a schedule each year.

She is currently in the middle of a 5-week stretch of tennis!

And she will probably not lose before QF in any of them.

Now imagine that for the whole year (except Wimbledon)

Jankovic really is having such a consistent year, she may not have picked many titles this year but apart from Wimbledon she has reached at least the qf of all the events she entered so far this year.

It really isn't that great. If you lose in the quarters or semis in every tournament, you still get a couple days off. In 2000, Hingis played like, twenty tournaments, and won nine of them, and reached the quarters of everything else. I think Seles had a year post-stabbing where she reached the quarters of everything, as well.

Let them eat cake.

I just think that she's been very consist ofcourse a year when you're winning more events and still reaching the quarters or better of all your events is much more impressive because eventhough she's reached at least the quarters most of the time she only got one title and two other finals, not counting the final she's playing tomorrow. So she's consistent but she's only won one title and it the end titles mean more than just consistently going deep in events

Is Year-end #1 determined by ranking or race?

Thank You. It should not have taken 'til post #10 for someone to point this out.

It is determined by ranking. All the race is for is to determine who gets into the YEC.

Re: Why is JJ no,1 in the Race to the YEC?

Jankobitch is a tournament whore which is the only reason she is #1 in the race.

Quality over quantity is the better way to go.
Out of the numerous tournaments Janko has played this year she only has one title to show for it and it isn't even a Grand Slam.

Come on Kuzzy! Kick Janko's ass in the China Open finals tomorrow.
