Post Is it possible IF Venus WIlliams wins 3 GS titles next year...

and doesn't get the number one ranking?? If she wins Australia, Wimbledon, U.S open. Also remember Venus has points to defend in 2 GS so there basically worthless on points.

Venus ~ Serena ~ Nadal

What Venus needs to do is compete in the tuneup events leading to the Grand Slams.

Unless the WTA suddenly changes the current ranking system, it's pretty cut and dry what Venus needs to do.

this is a longshot, but if venus can dominate in australia and become as good on clay as she is on grass, she could prob win the grand slam! she is just so good.

she probably could be closer to no. 1 this year if she lose in the 1st round at RG.

if she has a good 1st half of the year, maybe win OZ, then she has a good chance, because jennifer has a lot of points to defend from the 1st half of the year.

I wanna see Venus and Martina #1 and #2

Venus doesn't even need Australia to be computer #1, she needs to stop withdrawing from fall events. Last year she only played Linz after the Open(and was Runnerup), so decent results at Linz and Munich could lift her over the top.

i think she prefers play excellent 10 events,than play so so 20 events.she isnt consistent for long time so she prefers to stay home and play only when she is in fit form.i think that's a choice,not a casual thing.anyway if she plays so rarely,she never will be #1!

If Venus wants to be #1 than she needs to play more tournies, period.

I dont know what everyone is all in a tizzy about..
its not like they are cheating her of anything!
Venus is a very smart women... she knows what needs to be done to be number one! However, she has said slams are most important to her right now. So why can't people respect that, and quit whining about how she should be number one?
She has said herself that it will come in time.
Sheesssshh!

Unhappy

Sigh... if Venus plays Munich and Linz, and wins both, she shouldn't be too far off given the Capriati still has some points to defend. And if she does well at Aussi... then I think she'll get there.

I am still waiting for her to get to number 1. Just hope it won't take forever.

Wow, so much has changed since then. Venus made the #1 ranking without winning a Grand Slam. Her sister also made #1, and she did win the 3 out of the 4.

Venus winning 3 grand slams next year? Hmmm.....very hard seeing her doing that. The level Serena´s right now I can´t see anyone other than her winning more than 1 grand slam.
