Yep. I'm pretty sure she's also very good friends with Vika.

But it's not like Azarenka is in the same lane as slamless #1's Safina/Woz/Jankovic.

This.

They'll project an opinion onto someone and then argue against it.

Re: Safina: Serena must play full year to be real No. 1

Wait, are people really trying to argue Maria's Olympics was worse than Serena's RG?!? That logic would only work if you thought Serena and Razzano are on the same level, which.....even I wouldn't go that far.

And it's not like Serena hasn't also got one-sided beatdowns on big stages in the past 12 months, it's just she got hers off players like Stosur and Makarova while Maria's only got them from top players

She's telling the truth- of course Serena at her best is #1 but she doesn't deserve the #1 ranking


Sharapova | Watson | Muguruza | Konta | Broady | Bencic | Robson | Cirstea | Lisicki

Is this forum filled with 10 year olds. What are you idiots even arguing about. How the heck did Sharapova's name get in this thread.

Serena was a CONTENDER at RG, not a fav...isn't that what you guys wannna remind everybody all the time?! So now that she lost in the 1r, suddenly she was the die-hard favorite?! Please..

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Well, that's half truth in that..still hasn't won thing off clay yet, but..

She was more of a favorite at Roland Garros than Maria was at the Olympics .

She was so, so favored by the media. And by everyone here. She had over 80% of the votes in the WWW RG thread. Don't rewrite history.

No one is arguing that Serena deserves to be ranked #1.

The argument is she is the best in the world at the moment
Having beaten Azarenka a few times, Maria a few times and Aga a few all times this year, it is very difficult to ague the contrary.
