I think she meant
-Justine can definitely be (slamless) number one (this year)

Re: Serena: "Justine can definitely be number one (this year)"

Serena could care less if Justine is number 1, as long as Serena is still winning the majors, lol! We all know Serena can win the majors but still not be number one (well, thats not the case this year, I don't think)

Serena - 22 Grand Slam Titles -- 71 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #1 | 2016 Record - (31-4) 89%
Venus - 7 Grand Slam Titles -- 49 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #6 | 2016 Record - (21-9) 70%

Come on, we all know that Justine is just too good to remain slamless for long.

Re: Serena: "Justine can definitely be number one (this year)"

I thought what she said was: "Justine can definitely be number one this year - especially with our ranking system!", which is not that nice to me... Basically a way to say, I get the Slams, you get the number 1 ranking, a la Safina or Jankovic...

Dodin - Andrianjafitrimo - Kuznetsova - Rezai - Razzano - Mladenovic - Cornet - Garcia - Zheng - Hesse

She was more likely trying to say that Justine is a vey consistent player and so the ranking system would benefit her more than Serena.

(2)You stans may as well sleep well tonight because tomorrow the a replay of Lucie's winning moment over and over again will haunt your dreams for weeks to come
(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Is that really what she said?
I think Serena has been very gracious towards Justine these past few days (including today), but the adding of the "especially with our ranking system" is just... come oooon No one wants to be credited as the most consistent (but 2nd best) player, right? That was a little off, Serena
