Wozniacki is the only player

to achieve consecutive #1 rankings without relying on the tons of points from winning a major. IMO that's a stellar achievement.

Re: Wozniacki is the only player

I agree. She shows an impressive ability to bring her game, all year round. She is great for organizers, because she always delivers.

Re: Wozniacki is the only player

You have gone out of your way to highlight the very thing that keeps people away from embracing her as a true no. 1

It's a meaningless stat few tennis players want to have.

So long...

Re: Wozniacki is the only player

It's not her fault that other players suck even more than her...

But I think I've never seen world leader with such amount of points

Like saying I'm the best climber in the world, not by reaching Everest, but by adding up all the other smaller mountains I climbed.

Being that most of the hardest climbs in the world are smaller mountains... You make a very good point.

"Aint no mountain hiiigh enough", sings Caro from no.1. hill

At least she stays on top of her little mountain while the others fall off the big ones.

Kvitova is there to stay on her's though... Watch her win the champs on sunday.

Re: Wozniacki is the only player

Davenport 2004/2005? And she did it with a background of winning slams in the past.

Lindsay wins this achievement.

Love you!

(Though in all seriousness, I do think it's something for Caroline to be proud of! )

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.
