Re: Analysis of Year End #1s

Navratilova in 83 0.989 is insane and 16/17 tournaments won, just 1 loss the entire season. Her other years are great too.

Lindsay Very healthy numbers from all these players, as they would have to be to finish at no.1.

Re: Analysis of Year End #1s

Interesting
Hingis and Davenport were the only players to end as rank 1 without winning a GS.

Re: Analysis of Year End #1s

Looking at these stats, Serena would be a very deserving #1 among the 3 of them but compared to the others, she'd still pale in comparison especially on title counts since she has like 4 and the previous #1s had at least 6 titles. Thank god her W/L record is pretty decent.

Re: Analysis of Year End #1s

I guess there is still time for the potentials to add to their title count, but this is a bit of a freakish year...

Does it mean that the improved depth has meant no-one has dominated as in previous years?

Jankovic & Safina's number of tournaments played will be comparable to Hingis and Davenport in the past.

Yes, what a distinguished pair too. Let's hope they remain the only two come this November.

Re: Analysis of Year End #1s

It looks like Serena is the only deserving one...but I think she still has to win at least 1 more title.

I agree with that, it would be strange for a #1 to end the year with less than an 82% (and w/o a slam) ratio considering that is the lowest in the open era (still great though)

Timea Aga Masha Bencic Kristyna Keys Dani

Re: Analysis of Year End #1s

Jelena does kind of stick out like a sore thumb with her 22 tournaments played (most since Martina in '79), least number of tournaments won and worst W/L percentage. You can do better next year, Jelena.

Re: Analysis of Year End #1s

Kworb i thought you were one of the ones who stuck up for Jankovic's no.1?


Her stats to stand out but just look at who she is being compared with. These aren't just slam champs, they are out and out tennis legends.
