Yes that's true. Venus could have taken the #1 position if
- Capriati lost to Panova in the quarters
- On the way to the titel she had to beat Hingis in the semis and Clijsters in the final beacause they are the high ranked players and would have given the most points
So Jennifer didn't lose and Venus won't be number 1!
A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.
