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.
