Interesting Fact about #1 Ranked Women
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
It's interesting to me to see how many of the women actually played each other after at least one of them had been #1. Do the number of existing number ones in an era mean anything for the significance of the person's ranking?
-Graf: Navratilova,LD Evert,Austin,Hingis,Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario,Seles(7)
-Hingis:Seles,S.Williams,Davenport,Jen.Cap,ASV,Venu s Williams, Graf(7)
-Seles:Evert,Hingis,S.Williams,L.Davenport,Navratil ova,Jen.Cap,ASV, Venus Williams.(8)
-Serena Williams: Steffi Graf, Hinigis, Seles, Lindsay Davenport, Jen. Cap, ASV, Venus Williams(7)
-Lindsay Davenport:Navratilova,Graf,Hingis,Seles,S.Williams ,JenCap,ASV, Venus Williams, Tracey Austin(9)
-Tracey Austin: Davenport, Evert, Navratilova(3)
-Jennifer Capriati: Navratilova, Graf, ASV, Hingis, S.Williams, Seles, Davenport, Venus Williams, (8)
-Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario:Graf, Navratilova,Evert, Hingis, Seles, S. Williams, Davenport, JenCap, Venus Williams(9)
-Venus Williams: Graf, Hingis, Seles, S. Williams, Davenport, JenCap, ASV(7)
This list may not mean much, but I had fun compiling it. It looks like, ASV and Lindsay lead the list having faced 9 of the 10 #1's. They are followed closely by Seles and JenCap with 8. Navratilova, Serena, Hingis Venus and Graf seem to have 7. Evert only faced 5 #1's, and Tracey Austin only faced 3.
*Faced #1's that were not ranked in the official computer at the time.
