Serena #1 through the whole year?

Vika or Masha will replace Serena?

We may have a new #1? Aga or Tova or Na or the new Serena Sloane?

Some former #1s will rejuvenate?JJ or Caro or Ana?

Serena can only lose number 1 once clay season starts since she has the most points to defend. So ask again at that time.

Re: How many #1s will we have in 2014?

I think that Serena will hold on to the top spot until about April and if she can maintain her form then for a while after that too. I hope she picks up points in Melbourne and at Wimbledon.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

If Serena wins the AO and repeats at Roland Garros, lights out cause she will redeem herself at Wimbledon

Agree.

OP, I want to know HOW in heck you put Sloane Stephens in there as a challenger for #1? Stephens has immense talent, but is a quitter and has a horrible attitude out on court unfortunately early on in her career. Oh wait, you must be kidding. Never mind ...

52

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: How many #1s will we have in 2014?

Serena will stay number #1 until May. If she wins the China Open or defends her YEC, then she's solid until May. Add a better performance at the AUSO, then her lead is extended.
I can see Serena and Azarenka possibly switching during the summer.

Yet I am more inclined to think that Serena will hold the #1 for all of 2014 bar an injury. Yes she will have a lot of points to defend, but Serena can pick up point @ AusO and in Februray, and Wimbledon.

Yea, I think you are right.. It seems it's been Vika and Serena holding down the #1 ranking this year.

Re: How many #1s will we have in 2014?

I think Maria is going to have a rough start to the year because of her injury. So its more likely that if Serena loses the number 1 it will be to Vika or Radwanska......

Re: How many #1s will we have in 2014?

Serena will be the first player to go wall-to-wall as #1 since the ranking system changed in 1996.


Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.
