Who will be next world no. 1 ?

Capriati is number 1 now. Who do you think has a chance to be next world number 1 ? Lindsay won't play for a while, Venus probably won't play enough tournaments to be number 1. If Martina can win some titles or if she wins grand slam she could be number one again. But it seems Jennifer will be first ranked woman more than just few weeks

Forever No.1
Monica Seles
Thank you for great moments and inspiration!

More likely Jenn will hold it for longer period as Lindsay is injured.
Kim or maybe Lindsay again in later part of the year.

Martina??? maybe !!!!!
Venus???? Grandslam??? yes but Number ONE?? NO!!! She is not an all court player.
Serena???? She is not in my list yet!!!

OK, surely no Davenport, her rankings will go south because of her injury. Williams.. Not before claycourt season starts.. Hingis.. She has a lot of points to defend up to RG, but only two titles, all the rest is finals/semis. Technically she can improve her total. Especially is she does well in USA. I think she is the only one with some minor chance to dislodge Capriati before RG.

I imagine it will be Venus.

I would expect to see Jen hold onto the top spot until the clay court season - unless Martina can improve on her results which will be difficult as she earned a large amount of her points in the first half of the year.

I would say Venus, but I've been thinking that for about one year now. Something always seems to come up. After the AO final, I think Jennifer will keep no1 for a while.

After Wimbledon - Hingis

Monica will win Tokyo, Paris, Dubai, Indian Wells, Amelia Island and Charleston and become #1 before the end of May.

Ok -- a boy can dream, right?

It will be Venus - if she plays and wins Paris and Dubai she will overtake Jennifer in three weeks time. Simple maths!

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]
