Venus Williams could be #1 after Wimbledon?

What scenarios are there that would allow Venus Williams to be #1 after Wimbledon?

Should Sharapova beat Serena in the fourth round and Venus wins the tournament that would make her #1 I believe (I think if Serena loses as far as the quarters, and Venus wins the tournament, that Venus would be #1).

Thanks.

If Serena losses in R1 Venus need to be in the Finale or if Serena wins more Venus need to win the Tournament.

My guess (I have not checked the math) if Serena reach the QF she's still No. 1.

Slim chance.

Maybe after Wimbledon she'll have her best chance.

Re: Venus Williams could be #1 after Wimbledon?

1 Serena Williams USA 5 6480+1400= 7880 (Need SF to be sure no. 1?)
2 Jelena Jankovic SRB 5 5625+2000= 7625
3 Caroline Wozniacki DEN 5 5355+2000= 7355
4 Venus Williams USA 5 5111+2000= 7111
5 Samantha Stosur AUS 5 4790+2000= 6790
---
1 Serena Williams USA 5 6480+900= 7380 (Need SF or Venus can be No. 1) If Caro and JJ losses early...

Re: Venus Williams could be #1 after Wimbledon?

Extremely slim chance on Serena's part of making this happen. Despite Venus being gifted with the Belgian duo killing each other earlier, the chances of Serena losing before the 4th round are almost non-existent. She'd best the typical Sharapova play by outgunning her. The only way Serena's going to lose in the 4th round is if 2008 AO form Sharapova shows up, which is unlikely as Maria's been playing mostly the WTA tour's losers since her shoulder injury.

As much as I love Venus, I don't think she'll get the no. 1 ranking. Not like it matters. She plays more than Serena these days. If Serena doesn't play USO warm-up events, Venus can capitalize on that and still be no. 1 after that. Serena's got more points to defend at the US Open.

Possible but improbable

Re: Venus Williams could be #1 after Wimbledon?

If Venus wins and Serena is out before the semis Venus will be number 1. I don't really see this happening but I do think Venus could very well have another even better shot at being number one later on in the year.

Yes, Venus is the most probable No.1 if if if...Serena for some unlikely reason would lose early. I just don't see it happen

This scenario would work only if Sharapova defeats Serena? No other opponent could in order for this scenario to work.?

As you say that is why matches are played and I suppose Petkovic beating Serena isn't totally out of all realms of possibility although I personally find it hard to see this particular upset occuring.

To be honest I would say Venus has a significantly greater chance of losing her 2nd round match to Makarova than Serena has of losing to Petkovic, although this does seem hypothetical as I don't really expect either to lose.

Sharapova has nothing to do with it. If Serena loses to anyone in the draw before the quarterfinals and Venus wins the tournament, Venus is number one. It's that simple.

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.
