Possible August 18 WTA#1 list:
Ana with OG gold _______ 3964
Ana with OG silver ______ 3856
Ana with OG bronze _____ 3786

Jelena with OG gold ___ 3778
Ana with OG SF ________ 3746
Ana with OG QF ________ 3701

Jelena with OG silver __ 3670
Ana with OG 3R ________ 3659
Ana with OG 2R ________ 3639
Ana with OG 1R ________ 3612

Ana with OG w/o _____ 3611

Jelena finaly reach today worlds#1 (which means Serbian#1 also, of course) and became 18th WTA #1 ever in the history. But because next week will be cut-off points from her Toronto/07 final she must reach Beijing Olympics final to stay at #1 another week. Good news for both Serbians (in terms of rankings) is early Kuznetsova OG lose and after she will lose her New Haven/07 wins and USO/07 finals points, she is not anymore treat, and same thing for other Russian Sharapova which will not compete b/c injury in next two-three months, so only real problem for Ana and JJ TOP2 places is theirs own ijuries and Serena Williams which after Ana withdraws have open draw for Beijing final and dont have many points to defend from 2007 at all.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
