Chill with the theatrics, Matt, cuz the only ones who give a shit are other nitwits like you.
This is what I find funny about it. They get really pressed by someones comment.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

this is such horsesh!t i'm debating if I should even post a response. Do you know any math? Do you know how the ranking system actually works?

And all these #1's haven't been that good b/c the tour has been complete garbage since 2007 and by garbage I mean that every single player including Serena has had glaring flaws. If Serena can't stay consistent and healthy enough to win more tournaments and perform better, than that's not the ranking system's fault.

And all those precious majors are won beating the same sorry competition that these "bogus" #1's beat. But keep living in a world of delusion when many posts over the years have shown that Caro or Dinara would be #1 under pretty much every ranking system used on both tours in recent memory.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Many people don't deny this, they just have a problem with Safina saying Serena needs to play a full schedule which she has. That's the only problem I have with it and not the ranking system itself. I think what most people are arguing is that Safina should've never uttered anything about Serena needing to play more considering she's played as much as anyone this year.

Where does she say Serena needs to play more?

The fact that she says Serena must play full year implies that she believes Serena should play more even though she's played as much as anyone this year. You can't be that deluded or are you intentionally being obtuse?

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

Why does this thread have so many posts?

What Dinara said is 100% true.

The WTA no.1 ranking requires motivation and physical determination. Serena's fans have no right to complain that she doesnt have the No.1 ranking if she doesnt have the motivation to achieve it.

Hey Matt01...
As long as posters make unsubstantiated statements about Serena or her fans, I will be one of the most vocal Serena fans around, as you well know from experience.
I will be direct and blunt, and give it to you straight.
And if you can't handle it, then I suggest this web site: http://www.sesamestreet.org/

The most incredible thing about your rep comment is you speaking about "credibility".

Carry on Matt...carry on.
God lawd matty why you so mad??

Let's not fret. Serena will get the #1 ranking early next year even though she's been picking and choosing the tournaments to play

The WTA sets the criteria for the Number 1 ranking.

Serena doesn't meet it at the moment, full stop.

You're an idiot and who the hell said anything about Serena and her rankings. Serena is doing fine thank you very much and if she was interested in being #1 she would be. To bad your fav is garbage according to you. Try reading comprehension before coming after someone.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

When it comes to Serena Aceshigh always comes up with some deluded .

Please show me where Serena fans are complaining or implying that Serena should be #1? You people are truly confused.
