Re: Rankings Question (Dinara/Venus)
Safina won't be able to defend the points. If Venus wins Miami, she'll be 3rd on the leaderboard.
Also Venus has already successfully defended her points at Miami. During Clay season, Venus should only be worried about Rome (Semi-finalist last year). Hopefully she will do better at the French Open as well, but that's her worst grand slam event so eh......
With Wozniacki at World Number 2, Venus shouldn't have a hard time getting 2nd spot back. I'm predicting that Wozniacki will lose at least 900 points at the US Open.
Strangely enough, it has only been 3 or so days since I've commented to a friend that we'll probably see the William sisters at World Number 1 and 2 again this year.
