And that is in the past and unrelated to what Safina is talking about now. There's no issue with Azarenka being #1.

Why do you keep bringing up what happened with the Rome & Madrid comment? What kind of lingering anger?

Matias, sis, you are really carrying in this thread.
Are you bored, or have you always been Safina's #1 stan?

Okay! He trying to get an argument about what Serena did 3 and 4 years ago.

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

i missed something??? are we in 2009 again or have I missed vika winning AO and being on an unbeaten streak and putting up a better 2 finals than Shitfina? if anything i think she's a bit jealous of vika since no one is even questioning her credibility

You can't rewrite history to suit your own transparent purposes.

The SF performance pretty much confirmed she wasn't the best player, having just been straight setted in a slam final and then wiped out on the most celebrated stage in tennis. That was the peak of the computer #1 vs. real #1 debate/tension which had been steadily building since the Serbian sisters and their antics the previous year. Serena thankfully diffused all tension by ending the year ranked #1. Then we had Wozniacki.

Scheduling has nothing to do with any of these comments. That's a plainly moronic suggestion.

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

I can't realize why we argue about this all the time. Has Serena said that she should be #1 or that Vika doesn't deserve it? If Serena is not upset about her ranking, no one should be.

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

Justine missed an entire major (for non injury related purposes) in 2007 and ended up year end number one. Was she a part time player as well? Was she not deserving of the number one ranking?

(Plus there's the fact the WTA don't give anywhere near enough points for the Olympics, but that's a separate issue.)
What has Serena done that could be worse than the 6-1 6-0 Olympics final humiliation?

Dinara is the one who brought it up by trying to compare her situation in 2009 to Vika, everyone is just responding. She seems to think Serena has only played majors and that's not the case. Rena could have gotten the number one rank around the clay season but bombed at RG, so that's why she isn't number one, it has nothing to do with her schedule.

For the last time, the #1 player and the best player are not mutually exclusive.

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

Actually Safina's best year from 2008-2009, from 2008 US Open Series to Wimbledon is really good, and i think she deserved the no. 1 ranking she reached 2 semis and 2 finals in slams, and a olympic silver which is not bad at all, still far better than Wozniacki and far far better than Jankovic.

However, this comment makes me laugh, it's because the number 1 and number 2 are laughing when asked about Serena and their supposedly rivalry with her, even they admit that she is far better than them. And Serena doesn't care about the number 1 ranking, so does Sharapova.
