Re: #1 players stats

Serena you ruined yourself with Li

If she gets the #1 rank after AO he should look to improve that

Venus

Re: #1 players stats

Stupid Zurich! Jelena shouldn't have played there!
Still, it's a good start for her.

Serena, Justine

Re: #1 players stats

I have some trouble understanding all that... Tours are tournaments played?

Anyway, I can't remember which weeks Venus was number for in 2002. She played on 2 tournaments ranked number one, Hamburg and Wimbledon, losing in the finals to Clijsters and Serena respectively.

Who did Venus take over the number one from? Capriati? They never played that year I don't think and Vee neevr lost to Jennifer. Then Serena started her dominance... shame. 2002 was a strong year for Vee as well, she finished 62-9. Won 6 titles and made 3 straight slam finals losing only to the most dominant player... at her peak! And the quality players Venus was beating... her only major headache being Serena. Hmmm...

Re: #1 players stats

Serena only played 13 events when ranked #1?

Re: #1 and Top-5 players stats

Martina Hingis won 37/43 (86%) career titles while being ranked in top-5.
Serena Williams won 19/32 (~60%) titles while being ranked outside top-5.

Re: #1 and Top-5 players stats

I think you may have put an asterisk too much for Justine's Top 5 GS stat?

FO03,USO03,FO05,FO06(not sure if she was not number 1 then)

Jelena's stats aren't as bad as I expected them to be.

Justine was top-5 when she won 2003 RG, 2003 USO, 2004 AO, 2006 RG, 2007 RG, 2007 USO -- that's six out of her seven slams just like I stated.
