Number One

JJ..........No Slams and now in decline


Dinara......No slams and now gone


Woz ......No slams and in turmoil and declining


It seems Serena has made No 1 a very hot seat for

the Slamless.

Re: Number One

Caro might be in turmoil, but she has 9900 to 7000 lead over #2
Kim is holding 2 majors and going for a USO threepeat.
But this year 3 different players have slams & a 4th is #1 all year but 1 week.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there

Of course you are correct. If Kim makes No 1 she will not feel

the pressure. She is an established multi-slam winner.I was

speaking of the slamless 1's.


Yes, Caro has a big lead, but she has a lot of points to defend,

if her troubles continue they'll start to fall off rapidly.


Frankie, Petra, and Li each have a slam but they are not No 1 yet.


I don't think Frankie will make it. Li is getting older and hasn't

had great results lately. Petra is a good candidate and is in a

wait and see mode. I hope her early and easy dismissal in Toronto

was just a fluke.

Re: Number One

Wow... this is the first time this point is ever raised here...

If Caro is in turmoil I bet that pretty much all other pro players would love to be in turmoil as well...

Re: Number One

Serena seems much more dedicated to the regular tour since returning. If that is the case she will probably put the #1 ranking under lock and key (once she has played enough to get there) for the next 2 or 3 years anyway. Unless someone like Kvitova, a legitimate star who will actually win slams, also gets there. The slamless #1 phase is about to end IMO. Wozniacki will lose it soon and wont make it back until/unless she develops a game to win the major titles with.

I don't think many players want to be in Sunshines's shoes right now

I'm sure lots of players would want to be in Caroline's shoes.

I'd rather be a player who doesn't have the pressure of being a laughing stock number 1. They can enjoy titles and winning a slam. Caroline has GOT to win titles and MUST win a slam to retain any modicum of credibility. For other players the only way is up, for Caroline the onlly way is down.

Re: Number One

I would rather be #1 in the rankings, #2 in the Forbes list, & just turned 21, than almost any other situation.

Re: Number One

the ONLY credible no.1 since Serena was Juju...or Momo perhaps. For the rest, all came and crashed.
And Caro remains to be seen....losing to Vinci on HC's though...

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Re: Number One

I hope Vika doesn't get there, for her sake. She has done nothing to deserve being humiliated as a one-time slam SF #1.

It looks like a thread for trolls to pretend that getting to #1 is a bad thing.
Better to lose early

Agree, I want her to win a slam before becoming number 1.
