Safina talking out of her a** about being #1 vs winning GS

I cannot believe she said that, right after her 2nd round match, so funny, priceless :

Q. Kim Clijsters said yesterday that about the No. 1 issue she said, I hope Dinara is not letting it bother her or not thinking about it. I was in the same situation and I was No. 1 and hadn't won a Grand Slam. Is it something that enters your mind at all?
DINARA SAFINA: As I said before, when she she was in the same situation as I am, you know. But nobody will take it away from me. There are so many players who won a Grand Slam and where they are now? Nowhere. Some of the players you don't even know that they won a Grand Slam. You look and say like, Oh, my gosh, she won.
But No. 1 will always stay there. The people will remember you by No. 1, not by winning a Grand Slam.

Seriously this girl needs to defend herself better than that to be credible.

actually, she is right. except that she needs to add a "year-end" in front of that #1.

Wonder why does she show up at the slams in the first place, if they're not all that important lol

LOL you are remembered for both. The slams actually should indicate the rank, cause everyone dreams about getting a slam first and then the number 1 rank.

Yep... she needs a new coach or she needs to retire... her style of going for broke on every point is always going to disappoint the tennis world because the errors will dominate in many matches.
I will say though, that we've had fewer #1 players in WTA than we've had GS winners in WTA.

The slams have too many players that are weak and should be narrowed to one week with the best 32 players... maybe even round-robin to get to quarters or something... and then give a day of rest... and have quarters, semis and finals.

Well she is partly right. If you're not a multi-slam winner you'll probably be forgotten by the next generation.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

We will probably remember her as one of the worst #1 and that hasn't won a GS. God I hate her.

Good point... Sveta has two slams... and I love her and think she clearly has some of the best skills in the game... if not the best.
But I know, and hear it from my friends often, that she is not attractive to the marketing world, and will probably be less remembered than players who achieve less than she does.

Nonsense. At the WORST you'll be remembered as a one slam wonder.

the same will be for her if she doesnt get a slam... lets not kid ourselves......

People remember that Martina won 5 slams not how long she was #1.....
People remember Amelie won 2 slams not that she was #1
People remember that Venus has 7 slams and most are shocked (who didnt know beforehand unless told) that she only spent 11 weeks at number 1...

I heard this, and Dinara is deluding herself if she thinks she gonna be remember for anything if she doesnt get a slam....

Venus Ebony Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

Hantuchova
