Caro.

Bepa as number 1 would be awful, even though she did reach 2 slam finals this year.

Bepa! For me, a much more entertaining game to watch.

Re: If you HAD to choose, who would you prefer to be #1: Bepa or Caro?

Bepa, because she plays an attractive game to watch. Also, there is always the hope for a meltdown, which are very entertaining.

The most interesting thing about Caro is finding out whether she's bothered to shave.

Re: If you HAD to choose, who would you prefer to be #1: Bepa or Caro?

Which is worse: a player reaching number 1 only reaching a slam final in the year or a number 1 player with 2 slams final + MM event?

Caro is the better player though, and she deserves more to be number 1 right now

But rankings have lost their meaning long ago

none of them at the moment deserve the no.1 ranking....I think Caro at some point will reach that pinnacle.

Definitely Caro.

Bepa getting #1 would be to be blunt an embarrassment. Her mental strength is non-existant.

And Caro's game is non-existant.

Yet Caro has won 20 of her last 22 matches, beating Sharapova, Zvonareva, Kuznetsova, Schiavone, Dementieva, Pennetta...

All with no game

I don't call her Goatniacki for nothing. She is very good at what she does. I see no beauty in her gameplay, however. It leaves me dry.

She can also get embarrassed in matches. She lost at all four Majors this year in straight sets.

Neither, but Bepa has two slam finals on her ranking for the season. Either way it's going to make the tour look a mess. (more so than it already does).
