In theory if Victoria Azarenka beat Serena Williams in semi-final and Maria Sharapova in final, Vika would win her second Grand Slam title but Serena would become No.1 in WTA ranking. Basically only if someone like Ekaterina Makarova (or Virginie Razzano) win Serena Williams before semi-finals, she won´t become new No.1 after Australian Open.

Re: #1 Scenarios for Australian Open

Actually I think that Maria has a decent chance here .

Serena will probably do it though . No way in hell she's not reaching the final here . Vika will not defend her title that's for sure.

Thank god Ratwanska has no shot in getting the 1# here.

Re: #1 Scenarios for Australian Open

I don't really care in the number 1 ranking for Masha
but I'm glad, even with the AO points off that she can still rank top 2

The Shrieking Razor might as well go back to that zoo and pick up a koala bear coz that is the only thing she's gonna lift up this month.
It's really up to Sarin right now.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: #1 Scenarios for Australian Open

Serena is nearly guaranteed the nr1 spot after the AO

Otherwise she can still get it at Doha where she entered

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

If Serena is virtually 100% to make the final according to you, and she is 100% to be #1 when she reaches the final how does Maria have a decent chance to become #1.

Do people even read the opening post before they start their ramblings.

The only one that has anything to gain here is Vika. Serena doesn´t care about seedings, because she owns both. Maria doesn´t care about seeding, because she is owned by both. Vika has a walkover in the semifinal (Maria/Aga), if she and Serena come out #1 and #2.

Even IF Serena doesn't win the AO then she's pretty much guaranteed it for a period in the spring at the very least, seeing as she has little to defend until the claycourt season.
This here folks...is why no one likes Sharapova stans

Just to lose to Makarova again before their actual meeting.

Seriously, Serena definitely will be number one after AO.

MARIA SHARAPOVA
RUSSIAN GIRLS

and I'll yell and I'll scream at the top of my lungs
and I'll try to show you this is who I've become

I hope not...I want to see another Sharapova-Williams final. It makes me more comfortable on who to bet against than if it were an Azarenka-Williams final
