So is Venus Still the REAL World #2?

Just to save somebody else the time of posting this thread, i would now like to hear arguments from her fans about why Venus Williams is still the world's second best player, even as she has exited from the French Open in the fourth round and fallen to #4 in the rankings.

Go.

she won antwerpen against kim

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Here's why: the only reason Kim's #2 and Justine's #3 is because Venus hasn't played. So, lack of play is the reason she's fallen, not her 4th RD exit in Paris.

She's had this no-playing schedule for years now, and it didn't used to cause her to drop out of tournaments early, so this isn't a valid excuse...

I thought we had the rankings to tell us how players are seeded based on PERFORMANCE. Are there "opinion" or "potential" points there that I dont know about?

Yes, the way to solve World War III is to rehash stuff that you think is ridiculous.

I'm not certain, but I have a feeling that the government had something to do with it.

LOL. Hey man, I'm just saving Hinquit or Topshotta or some other equally profound person the trouble of having to create this thread! so let's hear it! Justine and Kim do not deserve their rankings! We all know it! Sing it from the hills!

I don't think Venus deserves the # 2 ranking, or the # 3 one for that matter, Kim and Justine have earned it. However, I do think that Venus is still the 2nd best player in the world. When Venus is healthy, and when she is playing on any other surface than clay, she handles Kim and Justine convincingly (i.e. Antwerp and the Australian).

I think the winner between Kim and Justine tomorrow will be the real no.2! Venus is no.4 I think, but the year is not over yet!

it WAS serena WHO CHEATED. she admits to serving knowing that her opponent was not ready

and now SERENA is maligning JUJU by accusing her of lies and fabrication. not a classy way to lose.

oh and yes she 'forgot' to shake Jorge Diaz hand and then went back with her phony smile and did it minutes later... what made her think of that minutes later? she has played hundreds of matches and FORGETS to shake the umps hand even though her opponent did it???

WHATEVER!
