Madness.
It's 52 weeks on monday. She's not playing next week, so she gets the cake this week. No big deal.


If Lindsay got back and had 6 more weeks as #1 they'd probably celebrate 2 years as # 1 = 104 weeks.

This point would make sense if Sharapova had drastically better GS record this year, but no, she netted only 500 more points at majors. Besides, it's not Woz'z fault that Pova has poor service technique that led to this injury.

Re: Congrats Princess Karolina On One Year At The Top

How did she? I still can't believe.
1) part-time players
+
2) no big champions left or they don't play good tennis ATM

her rotator cuff injury has nothing to do with serving technique - she got it in a rally while stretching for a ball. Current serving woes are just a consequence of this injury and mental blockage from damaging it again. She would have finished the year as #1 either way if not for that unfortunate ankle twist...oh well, tough luck, but it's the end of season anyway

I was talking about onelegged dance she performs after every single serve.

Re: Congrats Princess Karolina On One Year At The Top

These are her results at the TIs, YEC and majors. I know Beijing and obviously YEC 2011 are not completed yet.

2010:
W - Montreal, Tokyo, Beijing
F - Indian Wells, YEC
QF - Miami
3R - Dubai, Rome, Cincinnati
2R - Madrid
W/L: 30-8

4R-QF-4R-SF at the majors

#8 Radwanska, #7 Schiavone, #9 Radwanska (ret), #10 Dementieva, #4 Zvonareva, #6 Schiavone, #9 Dementieva, #2 Zvonareva
8-4 against top ten

2011:
W - Dubai, Indian Wells
SF - Rome
4R - Miami
3R - Madrid, Tokyo
2R - Toronto, Cincinnati
W/L: 19-6

SF-3R-4R-SF at the majors

#7 Schiavone, #8 Jankovic, #9 Azarenka (ret), #8 Jankovic, #9 Jankovic, #5 Schiavone, #8 Schiavone
7-2 against top ten

How sad no one could do better. Congratulations.

Que la joie soit écrite sur le monde et le ciel au-dessus.

You are so ignorant. Acute rotator tears are seen in people who forcefully push their arms against a resistance, like in weight lifting; or from a severe fall. Hers wasn't even that sever on the grand scale. This kind of rotator cuff injury just doesn't happen - it takes years of wear and tear on the shoulder for it to happen. It weakens then it rips. Why do you think it's common in MLB pitchers and swimmers?

And as for this: I see they're just conveniently forgetting the week Kim was No. 1 eh?

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

why am I ignorant? It is documented that she had this chronic issue for years till she aggravated it against Bondarenko in March 2008, while stretching for a BH...then of course her medical team failed to recognize the tear and she played injured for a few months before scans showed the damage and she had to undergo surgery.

Exactly. Chronic issue for years. It didn't just appear.

Re: Congrats Princess Karolina On One Year At The Top

honestly, this slam and mandatory record is not impressing at all

Sharapova can overtake her if she wins YEC and Caro does not do well in YEC
