Ummm... No. There will be trash talking by Henin fans and Belgians fans because they are #1 and #2, but everyone knows the real deal.

Yep, the real deal is: Justine has one slam this year, Venus no one!

If they are going to be negative about it, they may as well do it now as it has essentially already happened.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Actually, she's the 5th. Martina Hingis did it in 98 and 01. Arantxa did it 3 times in 98. Sandrine Testud did it in 99. Serena lost to Capriati 3 consecutive tournaments in 01 (including 2 Slams).

the point is that the main argument that serena (or Venus) fans use when discounting Hingis, davey, cappy, kimmie or juju having a higher ranking is that they "can't" beat Serena (or Venus). obviously this is not true for Justine.

Only by Serena fans, but the trash talking started the first time Justine beat her anyway, so no matter.

Why would their be any negativity with Justine being ranked number 2? IMO she is the true number 2 player in the world behind Serena and possibly number 1. She's won loads of tier ones, a grand slam, two semifinal of a gs, beaten the top players, she's proven herself. Anyone saying that she does not deserve to be number 2 is just getting themself. In fact, if anyone besides Serena should be number 1, it should be her, not Kim. But oh well, its Kim there now, but if Serena doesnt come back and start playing tournaments, and if Kim does not defend every single title she won last year during the indoor season, Justine will likely become number 1.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

I agree. I think that Serena is obviously the best player in the tour but I think that justine has proven very recently that she is number 2. i think that kim is number 4 behind Venus.

Number 1 is 12 months. Not 5, not 16. 12.
