Re: #1 with no GS or a GS but never reach #1

A GS with no #1 for sure. You will have that tournament memory forever. It is a great accomplishment that all juniors look forward to and dream of. While a #1 is nice, I believe people respect you more after winning a GS than being the #1. Perfect example of how things are in today's game.

Re: #1 with no GS or a GS but never reach #1

Nowadays, a GS is definitely a better accomplishment than #1.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

Re: #1 with no GS or a GS but never reach #1

Yeah its safe to say I despise the Williams clan and everything they stand for - like their phony racism charge against Indian Wells. They are the real racists.

Re: #1 with no GS or a GS but never reach #1

I don´t know

Seriously , I prefer the career of Rios- Corretja - Haas over Thomas Johansson's career any day

Safina - Jankovic over Majoli any day
