Weeks at Number 1!

Didn't realize that Serena had really passed up Lindsay. I hadn't checked them out in a minute. Lookin good for Serena! She has gone 48 straigh weeks! She is about hold the number 1 rank for 1 year straight. I never would've thought that. At first I figured she would hold it about the same time as venus, but she is on this hot streak, and is really maintaining it! Keep it up serena!

Steffi Graf 377 weeks
Martina Navratilova 331 weeks
Chris Evert 262 weeks
Martina Hingis 209 weeks
Monica Seles 178 weeks
Serena Williams 48 weeks
Lindsay Davenport 38 weeks
Tracy Austin 22 weeks
Jennifer Capriati 17 weeks
Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario 12 weeks
Venus Williams 11 weeks

Wait a minute! Did not Serena become #1, Jul 9 2002? If so how did you get that number? It can not be accurate.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

but she's till away a long time away from the big babes

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

it's not true, she has only been 34 weeks there

See the official preview off scottsdale from the WTA site:

I think the statistic from SerenaSlam is from tenniscorner.net, I saw this one also. It seems to me that Serena has 48 weeks the No.1 Spot for sure. So there seems no possibility, that anyone can catch the No.1 ranking before the 48 weeks are over.

ahh.....i see what you mean, so they are giving her the 48 right now, so they don't have to keep changing/udating them. so she does have 48, but she doesn't...wierd.

48 would mean we are maybe 2 weeks away from Wimbledon. It's more likely 34.

Yes, it's 34...but she will be (future tense) #1 for at least 48 weeks. Meaning, mathmatically nobody can catch her until at least after Roland Garros is over.

That's huge, if she wouldn't play for 14 weeks and Vee would win all tournaments in the mean while, Serena would still be number 1?

Well okay, having 3 GS victories, I guess it's normal....

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream
