Should Kim Admit She Is Not The Best?

What do you think? Or will the rankings finally even out?

She has already admitted that she isn't the best by saying Serena is the one. I don't think she pays that much attention to rankings anyways. I think it's better for her to start losing some matches in regular tour events rather then the finals of grand slams. She has always peeked in warm up events and fell short when it really counts.

I agree. I hope Kim can play better in the slams in 2004. It would be more fun if she did not suffer a mental collapse in every grand slam...

In '01, the now "Mrs. Leach from Newport Beach" (a 3 time Slam winner, BTW) finished as the statistical #1. And then "CCL" (Classy Californian Linzi ) promptly acknowledged that Venus had played the best that year.

Well, then does Chanda Rubin have to admit/justify that she is not worthy of a 10th ranked player?

Yesterday I saw a report on Eurosport where she said Justine is number 1 so she's already done it

yeah and then we will trow rotten eggs and tomatoes to her head

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

  1. Who said she's not doing her best?
  2. I'm glad some other posts confirm she does "admit it". Why? Because it's true, REGARDLESS of whether you're for Kim, Juju, Jen, Serena, or the return of the 1992 versions of Steffi and Monica, etc.

jolly roger your statements about wildcards doesnt hold water.

1-players with "tennis achievements" can play through the qualifing and win matches so they should still get what's coming to them

2-tennis is a business so tournament directors need to make money or the tournament goes out of business so they give WCs to players who attract sponsors and sell tickets?

How do you think Elke Clijsters gets so many wildcards?

why isn't she?? she's won 2 titles this year and made two finals, with wins over henin, mauresmo, capraiti, dementieva and has been forced to sit out long periods of the season three times this year. she still has 600 points lead over number 11 in the world as well. stop trying to bring other players down just because you favourite was criticised.
