Funny how, after saying it's irrelevant most of the time, Willytards suddenly start caring about the #1 ranking when Serena nearly has it
If for one do not care for #1 ranking. My selfish I only care about titles.
With that said, my altruistic side wants our sport to be respected.
How long are we going to have this constant debate questioning the legimacy of the #1 ranked player and pointing to another who should be?
Don't you get tired explaining to skeptical friend and family (who are just casual tennis follower) the intricacies of WTA ranking system?
They listen for awhile, come back to point out all the victories Serena she had racked summer/fall of 2012, beating the very players ranked ahead of her, ... a few times?
Keep in they only watch high profile tournament, especially the finals.
For that alone, I wouldn't mind if she take on #1 ranking.
It would give me a action from explaining the WTA point system.
