Is Dinara Safina the best female tennis player in the world?

For purposes of this thread, don't care how you make the valuation. But I'm talking right now. You can base it on career stats ranking, slams won in the last twelve months, who's fitness most improved since June 2006, or who you wanna f*ck. Don't much care about why.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: Is Dinara Safina the best female tennis player in the world?

She's the best female clay-courter right now. You can ask the same question in a month about Venus on grass and the answer is obvious. You can ask the same question on odd years in Melbourne and the answer is obvious. Hell you could have asked the same question in the indoor period last season and the answer was JJ. So it depends on the time of the year I guess. Because when Safina could only win 4 or 5 matches between February and May she definitely was not. Conversely when Serena couldn't win matches(playing hurt) she wasn't either. So what we have a best player in the world every week now? I don't think that is a good way to judge things. Under that standard there have been hundreds of best players in the world.

Proud Blackjack!

She's now 2000 points ahead of anybody else, so clearly yes.

Re: Is Dinara Safina the best female tennis player in the world?

She is the best at the moment. However at this same time we have an active player, namely Serena Williams who belongs in WTA Hall of Fame while we cannot say that about Safina right now. Still Serena is not as consistent as Dinara over last 12 months and this is why Dinara has an upper hand in the end of May 2009.

The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!
-Andre
P.S.Well,... special luck to Agnieszka Radwanska, Marta Domachowska, Daniela Hantuchova, Urszula Radwanska
Bally, Rest In Peace!

Shes the best female tennis player in the world on clay. If the grass season was this long im sure it would be Venus who would be no.1 right now.

And stop dissing volcana, his posts are always thought-provoking and balanced, rudes.
