'Looks competitive. Isn't.' Top Ten (11) points as of 05-05-03

As of 05-05-03 - no Hamburg 2002 points.

This weeks theme is Looks competitive. Isn't. There are a lot of pairs of players who SEEM to be competing with each other, ranked closely together. But a closer look usually shows the two players likely aren't focused on each other.

01 7055 13 S.Williams - La la LA la la

02 4325 11 V.Williams
03 4312 22 Clijsters

Looks competitive. Isn't.
If Venus or Kim would act in any way like they CARED about their rankings ....

04 3910 21 Henin-Hardenne
05 3304 17 Davenport

Looks competitive. Isn't.
On paper, Justine's defending a lot of clay points, and Lindsay none. I figured Lindsay wouold catch her by RG. But Lindsay's taking off most of clay season to make whoopy with that Leach person. (Wedding bells are in the air....) So Justine is basically free and clear, ranking wise.

06 2883 18 Capriati
07 2687 14 Mauresmo

Looks competitive. Isn't.
Amelie gets to add 3 free tournaments worth of points. On clay.
Given health, its when not if

08 2524 20 Rubin
09 2509 23 Hantuchova

Looks competitive. Isn't.
Chanda playing as well as anyone right now, and Dani is off-stride.

10 2265 25 Myskina
11 2180 29 Dokic

Looks competitive. Isn't.
Myskina's on top of her game.
Jelena seems lost.

With all those tournments that kim played she should be way ahead of Venus. But as the saying goes "its not quantity that counts it is quality."

Ha ha ha what next? Are we going to actually suggest that players ranking actually bears some relation to ability? Say it ain't so!

sorry but don't the rankings show which player has the biggest breasts. serena is untouchable, kim is just coming out of her teen years and has knocked off venus. quantity is obviously so much more important as demonstrated by anna being ranked in the 70s. oh actually what am i talking about, how could henin be number 4 if breasts where the criteria, she doesn't have quality and definitely not quantity.
