Are people more happy with Dinara as Number 1 now?

after having just won TWO mandatory premier events, are people finally accepting of the fact Dinara is number 1...

her performance against Anne today was absolutely stunning...she played like a true Number 1 player...

i was one of those who was praying she did not get the top spot before Indian Wells, however having seen her the last few weeks i am now perfectly happy to have her as our Number 1. She has been playing fantasically, and a win at RG would be the icing on the cake

come on Dinara, you can do it!

I was not a huge fan of her a year ago but I want her to win the FO now so, yes I'm happy with her as number one.

No

If she could beat the top players on hard- grass - carpet - indoor, yes (I doubt it)

Re: Are people more happy with Dinara as Number 1 now?

I also changed my opinion and think that she deserves to be number 1 after that 2 victories... but the majority of people will only respect her with a slam under her belt!

If she wins FO.

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: Are people more happy with Dinara as Number 1 now?

She is a #1 on clay. Her form has improved once the clay season has begun, but before that she was unproven.

Her ranking will only be solidified once she has a Slam.

Also, to the OP: slight correction. One of her tournament wins was a Premier Mandatory, and the other was just a Premier.

As I get sick of explaining to the great horde of unwashed,opinion doesn't enter into it, she is number one and like any other bugger who has ever been number one deserves it (even Willy's and Momo)

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

Re: Are people more happy with Dinara as Number 1 now?

It's becoming increasingly hard to argue against her being #1. The only thing I have left is that she hasn't won a slam yet, but if todays performance is anything to go by, that'll change pretty soon. Then I'll have nothing... which sickens me

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Are people more happy with Dinara as Number 1 now?

I've changed my opinion: I thought she did not deserve the number 1 ranking, but now I believe she has earned it. Obviously, a Slam would destroy any remaining doubts.

Life is so gloriously improbable
