Re: Safina: Serena must play full year to be real No. 1
This whole conversation is just weird. Is the WTA going to give Serena the number one ranking? No. Serena will have to earn it - math is math. What is the problem here? Serena's won slams, tournaments and the Olympics. Mathematically, not enough to be #1. There is no argument about deserving the ranking - it is what it is. Victoria has done enough to be #1 and that won't be taken away like some of you seem to think.
If someone thinks Serena is the best player based on her performances that is so different then someone saying because those performances she should leapfrog into the #1 spot ranking wise and be the top ranked player. Two totally different things. Sheesh.
It's as simple as that, really.
To those arguing about Serena's ranking...
Why are you posters arguing a moot point?
No one is saying that Serena should be ranked #1.
Where in this thread, or in any of the threads, is such an argument being made?
