Will Caroline Wozniacki get to Worlds #1 within a year from now?

I think she will, and if not this year, than probably next. She continues to climb up the ranking even though with however far she gets, people think that will be her best. She has a lot of points to defend but not too many at the Slams(except US). She plays lots of tournaments but she seems fine plus she has very few points to defend during the Asian Fall Season. She may be a counter puncher but she sure is a good one!

Re: Will Caroline Wozniacki get to Worlds #1 within a year from now?

no, shes only made it past the 4th round of a major ONCE.. Serena basically has the number 1 ranking locked until the US OPEN and by then.....Clijsters/ Henin and company will have gotten their rankings up.... Caro is on the way down...not up...

Venus Ebony Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

Hantuchova

I think unless she breaks through at a major then she's not going to be #1

There are two ways to look at it. Do I think she'll be the best player on the tour? No. Ever? No, not ever. That said, were Safaina, Jankovic or Ivanovic ever the best player on the tour? No. But they all held the #1 ranking.

Wozniacki can get there. As long as the worst third of her perfomances aren't counted in the rankings, and Venus, Henin and Clijsters are there to knock off Serena for her in various tournaments. She'll need help. But there's a lot of that around.

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.

Safina was clearly the best player on the tour during the clay season- until the final. And Jankovic was the best player during the fall when she ended the year number one.

Which is more of an indictment of the rest of the tour than anything.

Being the World No.1 used to have significance and prestige...
It is an embarrassment to women's tennis to think that someone like Caroline Wozniacki will ever share that accolade with the likes of Evert, Navratilova, Graf, Seles, Hingis, Williams and Henin.

Thank God Justine, Kim and (I hate to say it) Maria are on their way back to provide a bit of a buffer for Serena from the lower classes (i.e. the worst No.1's in history...Jankovic, Safina and Ivanovic and the likes of Wozniacki)

If she turns off her pusher mode, she has a chance within the next 5-6 years.

If she works hard to improve and develop her currently somewhat one dimentional game I think she has a good chance in the future. But not within the next year.
