Sharapova looking good for first ever year end #1

With her recent win Sharapova now takes over #1 in the race ahead of Wozniacki. She is looking very good to end the year #1 for the first time even if she doesnt win the U.S Open and ends the year slamless (which I think she will, as I fully expect Serena to win the Open). Kvitova and Na are too inconsistent to come from behind and pass Maria most likely. Wozniacki is definitely not going to outperform Maria the remainder of the year. Serena simply wont have enough time to get to year end #1 even if she wins every remaining event she enters.

If she does well in New York she will most probably will...but I'm not excluding Azarenka and her steady grinding game yet

Re: Sharapova looking good for first ever year end #1

Azarenka is over 1000 points back. That is alot of points, more than the value of a top Premier title, and about the difference between a slam champion and slam semifinal. I dont see Azarenka who wont win the U.S Open making that up. Azarenka does play hard every tournament, but so does Maria, and Victoria is more prone to retiring from matches. Azarenka also has trouble beating top players once she meets them in tournaments. Maria has trouble beating Serena, but has a fighting chance vs anyone else.

Re: Sharapova looking good for first ever year end #1

Doesn't Wozniacki need to win at least 300 pts per tournament to even add to her total?

Re: Sharapova looking good for first ever year end #1

Wow!

You would actually write a post like this, after that ugly shit fest that Martha put on yesterday with Jankovic? Ohhhhh K.

We'll be sure to frame those words for you after the Open, or at the end of the year, since you have such clairvoyance (especially regarding Na, Kvitova, Wozniaki, Vika, and the rest of the ladies bunch).

Thanks for the boastful Jinx.

Re: Sharapova looking good for first ever year end #1

So a "not real #1" replaced by another player who grinds her way into that spot? Yay.

C'mon Maria

She won't be worse world leader than Wozniacki. At least she doesn't collect points everywhere.

Re: Sharapova looking good for first ever year end #1

Maria is having problem beating Azaranka and for sure Serena. I think Serena is in her head!!!!! Maria needs to take it easy and go with the flow with a new plan. She has nothing to loose coz she is loosing playing as is.

Basically yes.

Except for the US Open, Beijing and YEC, Caro must win 280 points to gain a single ranking point.

Maria is the only top ranked player to still have two zeroes.

For this reason Maria has a lot bigger lead over Wozniacki than just the simple numbers seem to indicate.

Re: Sharapova looking good for first ever year end #1

Even if Sharapova gets to #1 without a Slam, the media won't go for the jugular.

Given the choice between her and Azarenka, the WTA would vote on an unanimous vote for Maria.
It doesn't work that way but still.
