Reason why Safina is world no.1
just to clear this up for the once a year tennis fans..
1st serve is a killer, alot of easy points from it. This makes up for any double faults.
2nd Serve is also very good when it lands in.
wins most exchanges once ball is in play with her MASSIVE winners.
she can play awful and come back from a set down in 2 matches back to back and still look likely to go deep in the US Open.
Won the most tournements in the WTA this season.
Consistant all year round.
Won 36 of her last 42 matches
She owns the Clay
she has made at least the semi finals in all 3 slams so far in 2009 oh and semis in the 2008 US Open.
Worst No.1 ever??? (man with head in hands)
Hope this helps.
