Safina back with #1 ranking

From the WTA
Quote:
When the rankings are released on Monday, October 26, Safina will be ranked No.1 and therefore the top seed at the season-ending event. After holding the top ranking for 25 consecutive weeks (April 20 to October 11), she will replace Serena Williams at the top when points earned at Doha last year come off. In 2009, Safina has earned more ranking points than anyone else.

Re: Safina back with #1 ranking

If you think it's useless, respect yourself and don't post in it. That said I do agree that she's prolly better off without the #1 ranking. Then again, since it's the 2nd time, maybe she'll fare better.

Re: Safina back with #1 ranking

So deserving!!! She is the best number one in history and has had an amazing couple of months just look at her record in her last 4 tournaments (3 wins and 4 losses ), losing to Rezai in her first match at Toronto than the amazing performance at the US Open, a 3 set win over number 167 Ragowska, another 3 set win over number 67 Barrois, and than finally the inevitable 3d round loss to number 72 Kvitova. Than she took her number one tennis to Tokyo, where she lost in her first match to ranked 132 in the world, 18 year old Miss Chang. Ending her streak at Beijing, with an amazing win over Vinci and a suprising loss over the goat that is number 226 in the world, and 20 year old, Zhang!!!
She has silenced all the critics with her number one dominance!!! Perhaps the best number one ever to play on the tour and a valid example that the Wta tour and rankings are in fine shape.

But having someone at #1 who has lost 4 times in a row this yar wouldn't be much better

Sorry bud, first of there is no attempt needed as the mockery that is the current state of the number one ranking is known by everyone.
Second of all my point was not about who deserves it and who doesnt but obviously you didnt get that(maybe you should get an award) and when you make a thread like the one you did which has been repeated over and over again well sarcasm is granted.

Re: Safina back with #1 ranking

she collected the most points during the last 52 weeks - therefore the top ranking is deserved and some of the people should get over it and stop their sarcastic stabbings...

I have nothing against Safina, she is a very talented player, a nice girl and has accomplished a lot in her career but the number one ranking, her slamless year(career) and her recent performance is a whole other thing!

WRONG.
It's Serena who collected the most points over the last 52 weeks.
