With Lindsay playing some great tennis and all this talk about Lindsay's ranking. I was just wondering if any of you have any thoughts about Lindsay breaking the 40 weeks @ #1 barrier.

Lindsay currently stands at being at #1 for 37 weeks - can she make it 40?

Here is the current chart:

1/ S.Graf - 377
2/ M.Navratilova - 331
3/ C.Evert - 262
4/ M.Hingis - 209
5/ M.Seles - 178
6/ S.Williams - 57
7/ J.Henin-Hardenne - 39
8/ L.Davenport - 37
9/ T.Austin - 22
10/ J.Capriati - 17
11/ K.Clijsters - 12
11/ A.Sanchez-Vicario - 12
12/ V.Williams - 11

For as long as Justine is at number one, that number will keep going up.....but surely it is possible that Lindsay could be able to be number one by the ned of the year?!

I think it would be great if Lindsay can be at number one for as many weeks as she has won tournaments. If Lindsay comes back next year, will she beat Serena's number of weeks? Is that feasable?

I think she can do it! What do you guys think?

i think she'd want to go past the 50 mark if shes happy with her tennis so lets hope she wants to go past 100 ;)

Wow!!! It'll be hard for Lindsay to get over 100 weeks, it was already hard for her to be n1 for 37 weeks, so...I don't realy know. I'd just like she will overtakes Serena. Let's imagine, 100 weeks at n1 means that she'll be n1 until Linz 2005. I love Lindsay, and I'm a fan of Lindsay, but I can't imagine a crazy thing like that... And nothing is done, I'd like so much that Lindsay will be n1 again, but she isn't, so we can just suppose...

She would have to really screw up to not get the number one year end ranking. That alone would give her about eight more weeks at number one.

Oops!!! Sorry foreva lindsay, I thought you were very serious!!!! But you know, I'm like you!!! I'd like her to be n1 for more than 100 weeks!!!!!!! She might do it, one day!!!!!

She has a great shot at it, at least :)

I would love her to be No1 in the world again, and with any luck she will be by the year end. If she could get beyond Serenas 57 weeks it would be good. Just for her to be No 1 is good enough for me though, regardless of the weeks. I would love her to get as many weeks as possible of course.

Nice to see you in here JACS. Where have you been?
