Talking I really want Caro to grab #1 spot!

As much as I like Serena, no player should be ranked #1 only playing six events in a year.

Caro will be a slamless #1 at first yes, but she's pretty much guaranteed to win a slam in the post-sister era. Who's going to stop her then?

Grab that #1 spot Caro.

No, she isn't.

And i'm happy for you, I really am, but is this really worth a thread? The number one spot stopped being relevant years ago.

A few other players can get #1 too, and I don't think we will see Caro doing it any time soon.

clijsters would deserve it more but i hope serena can keep hold of it as long as possible

i'm dreading the day that wozniacki becomes number one just because she plays the most quarter-finals

Re: I really want Caro to grab #1 spot!

A year end number 1 without a slam final on her ranking, let alone a slam, is far more embarrasing than a year end number 1 with just six tournaments on her ranking but two slams.

Schnyder Jankovic Petrova Kvitova Schiavone

Zvonareva Kleybanova Mattek-Sands Strycova

Niculescu Lisicki Razzano Koukalova Errani Pironkova

Baltacha (RIP) Robson Watson Gent Konta and the rest of the Brits

She is going to be ranked number 1, whether we like it or not Atleast Safina and Jankovic had a Slam Final appearance in their ranking when they were ranked number

Its not like she is losing to the sisters at the Slams. She is losing to players like Zvonareva/Kvitova/Na li/Lisicki/Cirstea/Dokic/Schiavone

Oh right, Polona Hercog will stop her.

Caro will play more events = having more shots at doing well. Kim will probably play two more events - tops - till the YEC.

Re: I really want Caro to grab #1 spot!

When is Serena coming back? Any date set? Being No.1 with 6 events would be weird, but with 8-9 it would be totally understandable.

Re: I really want Caro to grab #1 spot!

I want her to get to number 1 too. As history has shown us, with Jankovic, Ivanovic and Safina, when a person reaches a positon that they are not ready for or should not have, they crumble under the expectations. Will Caro feel the pressure and begin to fall.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

I wouldn't count on that happening to Caro. She's not a headcase like those three.

Never said it was going to happen. I just want to see if it will happen. If she keeps losing in majors, the press can make it hard on her.
