Obviously Azarenka, because os the weaker oposition

Lindsay had to deal with peak Venus, Serena, Seles, Mauresmo, Capriati and more

Re: TOP 5 : Most Undeserving Year End # 1's

Are you forgetting Wozniacki in 2010/2011?

Justine and Vika at least won slams. That being said rankings are what they are and people deserve the ranking they have because they have worked hard and if you get to number 1 you have obviously been very consistent.

Re: TOP 5 : Most Undeserving Year End # 1's

How can people say Victoria was/is the most undeserving year end #1?! Have you forgotten that no one could beat her at the beginning of the year?! It's not her fault Serena (or Kvitova as some say) couldn't reach her level. And if maybe they could have, the results would have been different, in Azarenka's favour, since she was doing really well and seemed confident. Apparently, people also forget that Serena wasn't good at the beginning of the year, because of her 2nd part of the season. And who was more deserving? Sharapova? The one who was humiliated by Vika and Serena at AO and Olympics? Vika kept it consistent during the entire year and had very good results, including a GS (and did pretty well at the Olympics).
BY THE WAY, how and why isn't Caroline mentioned here?

The poll makes no sense. None of them are undeserving.

Retired...

That was the first thing I thought of as well.

Re: TOP 5 : Most Undeserving Year End # 1's

Lindsay said herself at the time that she didn't deserve to be YE number 1 because she hadn't even reached a Slam final, let alone won one.

Davenport reaching number 1 that year was rather strange. She was injured and inactive from Miami until Eastbourne, and wasn't exactly beating the truly elite at the Slams or elsewhere. Had a superb indoor season, but was basically elevated due to Venus finishing her year after the USO, Hingis being injured and Capriati not consistent enough post USO to retain the number 1 rank even though it was clear she or Venus were the best players that year.

At least Lindsay was honest about it.

Re: TOP 5 : Most Undeserving Year End # 1's

Davenport out of the 3 due to not winning a slam, but all 3 were deserved IMO.

Wozniacki should definitely be there.

Woz won 5 BIG Premiers in a row to be no. 1
