True #1 of 2000 : Hingis, Davenport or Venus Williams

Martina - won 9 titles, including Miami, reached a slam final, RG and US Open semi, Wimbledon QF and won YEC

Davenport - (important ones)Australian Open title + Finals in Wimbledon and US Open, + Indian Wells

Venus Williams -(important ones) Wimbledon + US Open title + Olympic Gold Medal

Decide!

This is actually a great example of what people value more. 9 titles including many tier ones,YEC and full season consistency vs two majors and part time play.

I thought this was player of the year.True no1 was Venus.She was the player to beat.

Lol Venus

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Venus was amazing from June onwards, what about Jan-May? That's 5 whole months, she was POY but not the true #1. I'd have to go with Davenport

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

If Hingis had just put that overhead away in the U.S Open semis with Venus I think it would be her but as it is Venus.

Re: True #1 of 2000 : Hingis, Davenport or Venus Williams

Venus had tendinitis in both wrists in the 1st 4 months of 2000. That made her achievement in 2000 even more remarkable. She still managed to win 6 singles titles. Martina played a full yr but only managed 9 titles BUT no GS! And certainly no double gold medals.

If Hingis had put that away, it would be 2 mps. Not the match.

Re: True #1 of 2000 : Hingis, Davenport or Venus Williams

True #1 - Hingis.
PoY - Venus.

Being #1 includes results from 52 weeks. It's not a part-time job or a hot summer streak. To put into perspective, practically all of Venus' 2000 is based on that 35-match winning streak. In 1990 Monica Seles had a 35(or 36?) match winning streak from March - June. It didn't come to a screeching halt right then and there, though.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.
