Right? Serena probably won't play before Miami, but she did the same thing last year - whereas Vika won both Doha and Indian Wells last year...

Maybe Vika will defend her titles?

Of course that's possible and I think she has a fair shot. But that is the only way this scenario doesn't come to fruition, right?

Wimbledon + Olympics + US Open + YEC is more than enough to not have to do anything for the next couple of months to take the #1 spot.

Re: So Serena will probably become #1 over the next couple months without playing a m

In 2012 those 4 big tournaments in Doha, Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami went something like this. Winner, finalist and semi-finalists with their ranking points.

Doha 2012: Victoria Azarenka (900), Samantha Stosur (620), Agnieszka Radwanska (395) & Marion Bartoli (395).

Dubai 2012: Agniezska Radwanska (470), Julia Görges (320), Caroline Wozniacki (200) & Jelena Jankovic (200).

Indian Wells 2012: Victoria Azarenka (1000), Maria Sharapova (700), Angelique Kerber (450) & Ana Ivanovic (450).

Miami 2012: Agniezska Radwanska (1000), Maria Sharapova (700), Marion Bartoli (450) & Caroline Wozniacki (450).

As we can see Victoria Azarenka is a defending champion in Doha and Indian Wells, Agnieszka Radwanska is a defending champion in Dubai and Miami, and a semi-finalist in Doha, and Maria Sharapova was a runner-up in Indian Wells and Miami in 2012. On the other hand Serena Williams and Na Li don´t have many points to defend.

After Australian Open Championships top 20 rankings:

1. Victoria Azarenka 10325
2. Serena Williams 9970
3. Maria Sharapova 9545
4. Agniezska Radwanska 7750
5. Na Li 6255
6. Angelique Kerber 5695
7. Sara Errani 4605
8. Petra Kvitova 4085
9. Samatha Stosur 4025
10. Marion Bartoli 3740
11. Caroline Wozniacki 3545
12. Nadia Petrova 2945
13. Ana Ivanovic 2841
14. Dominika Cibulkova 2695
15. Maria Kirilenko 2690
16. Roberta Vinci 2585
17. Sloane Stephens 2466
18. Lucie Safarova 2160
19. Julia Görges 1965
20. Ekaterina Makarova 1881

Serena is actually in the entry lists of Doha and Dubai, Whether she will play or not, i highly doubt it, specially with what happened in the Australian Open, but i hope she plays Doha and wins and claim the no. 1 spot.

Just like she was "guaranteed" to be #1 after the AO

I don't think that draw in Doha /Dubai/IW can be more cakewalk-ish than on AO this year
