Is it possible for Lindsay to regain #1 at the Open instead of Momo/Myskina?

Andrew.
Jul 31st, 2004, 07:27 PM
Very. If she wins San Diego and New Haven, she actually has a shot at it before the Open.

It's been speculated for the past few days, and polls also indicated that many believe Juju can lose the #1 ranking in the next month.

According to my calculations, Amelie could actually become No.1 at Montreal if she reaches the final! This is because JuJu should be down to around 4204 points and Amelie is currently on 4031 points! :eek:

ALLEZ AMELIE!!!

Justine will be only 4204 after Montreal?
That means a win this week and SF next will be enough for Nastya:angel: (http://www.wtaworld.com/misc.php?do=getsmilies&wysiwyg=1&forumid=34#)

A numerical nightmare. San Diego is undecided but Momo is out. Lindsay I think has two LA sets of points still in her ranking which means she has fewer points than it looks like. Myskina I don't think has Canadian points in her ranking and can gain. Momo and Myskina can get olympic points that Lindsay can't. Then the US Open will throw all those points about........

Justine can never be at 4204. On Monday she'll have 4916 pts. Same for next week as LA points (0) come off the ranks. She'll lose her points from Montreal (401) only in 2 weeks, and then she'll still have 4515 pts.

Let's not forget that Justine is NOT losing any points next week.

This time last year (next week) was the JPMorgan Chase Open, if I'm not mistaken, which she didn't play.

The JPMorgan Chase points should be coming off, and Toronto's points should be coming off in two weeks.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Amelie will become #1 if she does well in Montreal and Olympics.

:rolleyes: And let me guess who you think should be #1 in the world.
Kim and Amelie worked so hard to get there, they seize the oppurtunities. Ever wonder why Venus was never ranked #1 in 2000? Because she did nothing. Nothing for the ranking and she thinks the whole ranking is a joke.
And because of that, out of all the #1's in history, she held it for the shortest time.
#1 means a lot. If you dont care, there is no need to diss the others for caring about the rankings.

Sorry, I just realised my mistake! I looked down the list of tournaments Justine played last year and saw 'Los Angeles' but I just realised that was the EOY Championships not the JPMorgan Chase! Therefore Justine will indeed have 4515 as you say! Sorry everyone. My mistake :banghead: :bolt:

Who do I think should be ranked #1? JHH until the US Open ends. She's the one with two majors currently. If Davenport wins the US Open, she should be #1. If she doesn't, Myskina should be #1.

Who the fuck cares about 2000? It's the past. Live in the present please.

I'm sorry but I don't believe anyone can reach the No.1 spot without being consistent! Amelie is the only person this year to have reached the QF at every grand slam, thats pretty consistent!

Steffi Graf held 3 slams before Martina Hingis won Miami to become #1 in 1997.
And she has been a great #1 for the past years. Justine only played 12 tournaments, and lucky for her she has 2 slams in her rankings, otherwise I think her being up there is a joke too. At one point she had most point total since the present ranking system is made, that was what I call a deserving #1.
Amelie and Nastya have the chance to pass Justine. If they do, whatever Justine does in US Open probably will not factor anymore.

Justine has been undisputed #1 for a long time. I dont doubt her that she still is. But the problem is I that someone said Amelie didnt deserve to be #1. My point was, on dedication alone, Amelie deserves #1 in the world. Currently the race is led by Lindsay and Amelie. And even though Amelie might not have won slams, but she is still in the race to #1, and if she gets there. She'll deserve it:).

They Didn't seize any opportunities. Kim merely played every week
like mad to gain points while the Sisters were injured. And she is
paying the piper right now. Players have been doing this since Hingis
showed them how and it has caught up with most of them. When have you
heard Venus say that the Ranking was a Joke. She is playing her heart out
now to rise in the rankings. If She wasn't injured she would have played
more tournaments this year than ever. The WTA has made the #1 rank
a joke for having a system that allows one to become #1 by being a
Marathon Madam than by winning and beating all comers as it should be.
How can one be considered #1 if she cannot beat the best players.

That's what a typical Williams fan would say discrediting Kim, but that's not what people who know how the rankings work think. For people who know and care about the rankings, they wont say if someone does not deserve #1 or anything like that since they'll acknowledge the work Kim had put in to get the ranking. Well, fans can have their own standard of determining who is #1 in the world, but I care about rankings, so I'll give them the credits they deserve for their work. For those players who dont care about rankings, I can care less about them.

Momo isn't playing tournaments like crazy but is still leading the race with Lindsay : what does that tell you?
She can beat the best as she proved it to you her whole career. You need luck to win slams like Sampras once said, and this is what Momo is only lacking right now.
What do you think of Lindsay getting to number one without winning a slam for years? I guess it could apply to her too.

I am not discrediting Kim or her hard work. She doesn't have a patent on hard work. Many players work hard. It doesn't matter how hard you work.
What Matters is who you beat and how often. Do you actually condon
the #1 Ranked player not being the Best player.

Being the Best also means being able to par with injuries/health problems, and thus far, a lot of top players are /were crippled with injuries, thus the falling in ranks and overtaking by healthier players. It is not their fault that player X and Y are injured and out, and player X had surgeries along with player W who broke all the bones in her body blah blah blah.
Rankings are there, whether it matters to a player or not, or to you or not. If you dpn't care enough about them to work you arse off , then don't come crying that you are not ranked high enough. And if player work their arse off at being consistent and injury free, then they deserve it as much as being called the best as anybody else, whether they have won slams or not.

What race is she leading with Lindsay. She hasn't won anything in Months
How has she beat the best her whole career. What is her H2H against
the Sisters. Against Justine. Kim. Her only recent win was a walkover from
an injured player. She just lost in the first round.
Do you really think Luck won all those Slams for Sampras. Do you think
it was luck that Serena came back from 0-5 in the third set at the AO.
The best players win. And the #1 player wins Consistantly. MoMo has not won a Slam because she was not the Best player.
AS of right now Lindsay is playing the best Tennis so I would not have
a problem with her being #1 , right now. Myskina is also playing very well
now.

You're right, That is consistant. But She didn't win. Should the #1
player be a QuarterFinal Queen.
As in any sport The #1 player or team should be the one who beats
all the Rest. To Be The Best, You Have To beat the Best.

she has beaten every player in the top ten except Maria because they haven't actually played each other yet! she has beaten Serena and Venus as well.

What race is she leading with Lindsay.

The Porshe Race, she was No.1 until Lindsay started her Californian streak.

She hasn't won anything in Months

She practically took France into the semi-finals of the Fed Cup recenty by beating Silvia Farina Elia and Francesca Schiavone (on clay). she also won a doubles match in San Diego against Ai Sugiyama and Shinobu Asagoe

Her only recent win was a walkover from an injured player

:confused: Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean? I don't remember Amelie getting a walkover recently!

I can see where you're coming from, but I'm going to stick to my corner and say that Amelie is fully deserving of that No.1 spot. Most players have to struggle with injury at somepoint in their career and Amelie is no exception. It shows her determination and commitment that she has been consistently in the top 5 for god knows how long :)

Well as much as I like Momo, her getting to no1 wouldn't be right. Ok Myskina or Davenport may not be the real number 1 but at least they have been pretty consistent this year winning some major titles and stuff. I know Momo won Rome, but a little bit more is required.

I think with Momo or whatever name she is given this week, will be more motivated to win a grandslam if she gets to number one without winning one. I think that with Amelie, she seems to rely on her current state rather than future. The future just scares her. I mean, she had the number two ranking locked up and she falls in second round. At Roland Garros, she had the title in her grasp and falls to who? Bad Serve Polly....At Wimbledon, she should have been in the finals and would have sharpen sharapova, but she falls again, I don't know what needs to be done with Amelie, I seriously don't know. Maybe the number one ranking without winning a slam, would change her mindset.

Maybe an addition to the wta tour II would really convince her to do what needs to be done.

Amelie is the one carrying the French Fed Cup team on her shoulder alone. They wouldn't have gotten this far or ewven won last year if it wasn't for her. No other player is that important to their team.

Do you really think Luck won all those Slams for Sampras. Do you think

a problem with her being #1 , right now. Myskina is also playing very well
now.


HEr H2H? I am not sure about it, but I am ready to bet that other players are not better than hers against this "top players". She has defeated Juju many times ( can't remember where exactly). The only one in there she has a tough time with is Serena, but most of the game she lost were tough close ones. If you're so interested, then do your own research. I know that Amelie has beaten "the best" players before and is capable to do so again ( wimbledon sf).

I never said that luck was all you needed to win a slam, of course talent should be here too. If she didn't have the talent, she wouldn't be conssitantly ranked top 5 even after being crippled with injuries ( which to mention here, took her out of a number of slams--meaning she did not enter them). How are you supposed to win slams when you're unlucky enough to be injured during them.

I'm sorry to disagree with you, but Amelie defintely is deserving of the number one spot, with slams or not.
And i have to notice that you included Kim as one of thes best, so winning a slam isn't particularly important now is it?

So as of right now with Lindsay's 3 Week break starting she has a 858 point lead over Myskina and a 1514 point lead over Kuznetsova. That latter one is quite scary indeed - that she's almost doubled the points of the no 8 person (doubled the no 12 player)

Mauresmo and Myskina have quarterfinal points to defend, but Davenport has big semifinal points to defend. It'll be interesting to see who comes out of there as the #1 player in the world.

I hope a Major winner gets it, be that Myskina or Lindsay/Momo if one of them wins the US Open.
