Kim has withdrawn from Wimbledon and gets 0 points. So no matter what happens Caro will be at least 1100 points ahead post Wimbledon. Actually, chances are she'll have a 2000+ lead after Wimby.

I see Caro at #1 at least until the USO. And I think she will be YE #1 again.
If Caro's still #1 come USO chances are she'll also be afterwards considering Kim and Vera were last year's finalists.

The winner of Wimbledon (especially if Li, Vika or Maria) could threaten Caro after the USO as they have less points to defend than Caro.

True. If one of those three gets very hot and wins both Wimbledon and the US Open then Caroline's ranking could be in jeopardy. I don't think it is very likely to happen but if Na Li makes the final and/or wins the last two majors I wouldn't begrudge her taking the number one ranking as that would be a rather singular achievement.

Still, if Caroline goes very deep at Wimbledon (semis, final or win) she would give herself a very hefty lead.

Re: Weeks at #1

The WTA has confirmed that Caro is safe at #1 at least until August:

Quote:
WORLD NO.1: Caroline Wozniacki enters 2011Wimbledon as theWTA’s No.1 ranked player for the 3rd straight time at a
major and is guaranteed to be No.1 through week of August 1, which will extend her reign at the top spot to at least 42
weeks, which will see her pass Amelie Mauresmo and become the 9th longest-serving No.1. Wozniacki has held the top spot
since first achieving it on October 11, 2010, with the exception of week of February 14, when Kim Clijsters returned to No.1
for the first time in almost 5 years.
A deep run at Wimbledon will do her good, especially considering her last 3 mandatory events has been rather diappointing (Miami, Madrid, Roland Garros).

"Wozniacki ties Mauresmo for weeks at No.1

Caroline Wozniacki is spending her 39th overall week at No.1.
Her first 18 weeks came between October 11, 2010 and February
13, 2011, and after Kim Clijsters spent one week there, she is now
in her second stint as No.1 (this is her 21st straight week there)."





Nice birthday present.

Re: Weeks at #1

Graf, Navratilova, Evert, Hingis, Seles, Serena, Henin, Davenport... and Wozniacki.

Just 8 women have been #1 longer than Caroline. Amazing!

But she's facing a lot of points to defend in the coming months, and I fear her confidence was hurt at RG/Wimby. But she likes the US hard courts so I'm hoping great results lay ahead of her. I want her to shine at the USO

And she's still leading the race to Istanbul:

1 Caro 5806
2 Kvitova 5037
3 Li Na 4947
4 Sharapova 4840
5 Azarenka 4502

I'm sure one of those 5 will end 2011 as #1. I hope it'll be Caroline

According to the WTA Caroline has secured the #1 spot at least until May 16th (31 weeks).
But considering she hasn't that many points to defend until August 22nd when her 900 Montreal points is dropped, I can't see anyone taking the top spot earlier than that (August 15th = 44th week).
As predicted in April, when I opened this thread Caro is still #1 on August 15th - 44 weeks.

She still has a big lead, but now the points are starting to come off from her fabulous end to 2010.
Rogers Cup: 900, New Haven: 470, USO: 900, Tokyo: 900, Beijing: 1000 & YEC: 890.
Total: 5060 points to defend in the rest of the season.

I can't wait to see how she returns after disappointing results at RG/Wimby and her injury in Båstad.
Hopefully she's fit for fight and ready to kick some Hard Court a$$!

GO Caro!

Re: Weeks at #1

Terrible start to the HC season for Caro. But since her biggest rivals lost too, she is still safe at #1.
According to the WTA she will enter the USO as #1:

Re: Weeks at #1

Shamelessly stolen (and updated) from the stat forum:


Only players who have broken into the top-20 since 1997 listed.


as of August 8, 2011

Code:
			HR	No.1	Top-3	Top-5	Top-10	Top-20
							
S Williams		 1	123	207	289	516	608
J Henin	      	         1	117	176	238	344	406
C Wozniacki		 1	 43      61	 97	117	157
A Mauresmo		 1	 39	155	202	339	503
D Safina		 1	 26	 85	 88	116	240
K Clijsters		 1	 20	181	287	337	422

Not sure if Serena's weeks in top 20 is right. When was her last week in the top 20? Can't find it anywhere.

Serena dropped out of the top 20 on the 6th of June 2011 (fell from #17 to 25).

Btw: Caro's 117 weeks in the top 10, and 157 weeks in the top 20 have been consecutive (as opposed to her #1, top 3 and top 5 weeks, which have all been interrupted). She has the longest current stay in the top 10 of all players.

I'm kinda surprised she has more top 10 weeks than Safina already!

V Zvonareva		 2		 45	 54	144	305
Woz is getting close to 2 years total in the top 5.

Serena could soon start to add to her top 20 weeks again if she plays Cincy.

Re: Weeks at #1

I agree with what Caroline says about being #1.

My answer would be "I want to be #1, and I when I'm retired years from now, I want to have been #1 for a long while and won several majors. I want to keep improving, stay #1 and win majors."

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Weeks at #1

She will now stay No. 1 also after US Open 2011. (As some other players in TOP 10 who had the chance for No. 1 also lost early in Cincy...)

After US Open there's some MM's, but i don't think the TOP players have Entered them, so Caro will likely stay No. 1 atleast untill after PPO (Japan Open)
