Debate over-Stick a Fork in Her-When does Caro drop to #2?

As far as I'm concerned the does Wozniacki deserve to be #1 debate is over.
Stick a fork in her. She's done as #1, both in the minds of players, the press, and anyone on the board rather than rabid Caro fans.


My question to the number crunchers is this: when will she be put out of her misery and statistically drop to #2?

P.S. For the 100th time Caro-drop off the tour for 3 months and retool your game

Next year after IW-Miami I guess. Depends which other players can step up to take it. Not sure Bepa will do it since she's also not playing good atm, Kim will definitely have no chance since she'll be defending tons of points from now on. Na and Kvitova will need to be more consistent to take it. So far Sharapova may be the one to regain the #1 as long as she doesn't do too bad than she is now.

The very simple thing you don't seem to get is that "deserves" and "in the minds of" have nothing to do with being #1. It's amazing though entertaining that there are still people who raise the same old idiocy. I mean of course Wozniacki isn't the best player on tour, I doubt that anyone ever thought she was. However right now she is #1 -deal with it!

Almost definitely by the end of the year.

Kvitova, Sharapova, Li and Azarenka are nearly tied with her in the race. It would be very hard for them to pass her after the US Open, but possible.

You could see this coming before now. I've been predicting Caro wouldn't finish as the year end #1 for months now.

It's pretty obvious that her BFF Azarenka is already licking her chops and getting ready to become YE Nr.1...if I had to make a guess it's probably gonna happen during the Asian swing

Well, she just lost 899 points here.
She's defending 470 points at new haven as well.
900 points at USO.
So there's a possibility that she'll lose the number one ranking after the USO if Vera can do well.

Caro needs about 600 points from New Haven and US Open to stay at No. 1 ithink... or Vera, Vika to lose early in their tournaments exp, US Open where also Vera defends more than Caro...

Please visit my Caroline website.

Yup. Smart money is on Azarenka making the semis at the US Open, then doing like Wozniacki last year and cleaning up at the Asian events when Serena, Kim, Maria et al have packed up and gone home for the year.

I'm very worried for Vika. She's very consistent and only loses to top players for the most part, so she has a good chance of taking the #1. It will be disastrous for her, and she really has done nothing to deserve such a beating. She doesn't overplay..just does well consistently.

Victoria is most likely finishing the year as #1. She has virtually no points from the US Open and chances are Lobniacki is bombing before the 2nd week at the Open.

Zvonareva isn't making the finals either. I expect her to be gone by the 4th round, running into someone like Venus or Radwanska.

Re: Debate over-Stick a Fork in Her-When does Caro drop to #2?

Well, yes as others mentioned Vika is the next on the starting blocks for the #1 rank -- I prefer not it was her but it's just so it goes unless in the eventuality she wins a majors thus the US Open. Vera has too much to defend and Kimmie hasn't played enough... Caro could lose her ranking at or a little after the US Open depending how well the girls closest to her does. If Caro loses in the 4th round of US Open she'll be at ~ 8715 points and I don't know her plans for New Haven so it's the supposition she plays and win the event.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

the WTA is like a latin soap opera...so dramatic and full of twists, yet so cheesy and bad

Just when we though the WTA was getting back to normal
