rankings question

has a player ever been ranked whatever, like say Kim she is number 2 now, but i do believe she won't be playing any matches at all as number 2? When berlin starts she will be number 3 again. Has this ever happend? Getting ranked like 1 2 or 3, but not getting to play as the "number so and so in the world"

The way she got the number #2 position, it is the same way it is going
away. She got it by way of default and it is going back to Venus the
same way.

im more so talking about with the ranking being so high, and if you get that ranking, and don't even get to actually play as number 2, how could you even call yourself ever being number 2?

Kim will play Fed Cup as #2..It's not a WTA event but it's still playing as #2.

I guess Lindsay got to #1 after her win against Kim in 2001 (or was it when JenCap lost ?) and the final was a walkover for Serena so technically she never played as #1. Then again she's been #1 before so I'm not sure if that counts.

Well SerenaSlam I wouldn't worry too much about that as KIm is going to get back to 2 pretty soon after she loses it, post RG or Post Wimbly time

That is kinda odd, but I don't think it takes away from the fact that she had a high rank of #2. '


You guys crack me up.

Is 2002 Wimbledon the only tournament Venus played while she was the #1 player? I can't remember whether she was #1 at Hamburg.

I believe Venus did play Hamburg being #1. Or was it she became #1 again after Hamburg?? I know she lost it again when she pulled out of Rome.
