I think it will be a close fight between serena and venus if they both decide to play about 6 or 7 tournaments next year.
but then, they have committed themselves to more than that number of tournaments.
but again, with venus and serena, you never know.
Dec 16th, 2001, 08:02 AM
LMAO! Serena or Venus finish out of the top 10?
Whew! Thanks..I needed a good laugh <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
Dec 16th, 2001, 08:04 AM
I just read the part about 6 or 7 tournaments...<br /> <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Even if they only played half a dozen tournaments, good slam results would keep them in the top ten.
Dec 16th, 2001, 08:25 AM
I voted Dokic ..... but i think it will be Nagyova!
Dec 16th, 2001, 08:33 AM
I voted OTHER because I think it will be either Hingis or Jennifer that will slide in rank. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Dec 16th, 2001, 09:01 AM
Whats wrong in betting with Serena????<br />Theres no much different to Jelena, Elena and Meghan. Sure Serena could be number 1,2,3, or 4 but why not 12?
For Venus, I think she could manage to be in top 5 the least. No way for her to drop to 12 unless she really doesnt play.
Dec 16th, 2001, 09:20 AM
Queen Lindsay: Nothing wrong with betting Serena... I just think its not very probable that she won't be in the top ten, so i found it laughable.
I also find Dawn picking Jenn and Hingis to be totally laughable. But its just my opinion vs someone elses, so who cares? <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
There is definately a lot of wishful thinking going on around here though <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
Its all in good fun.
Dec 16th, 2001, 10:06 AM
Really!!!! Where is Serena now and Where is Jelena???? What is then more probable to you.
Dec 16th, 2001, 11:11 AM
QueenLindsay Serena can drop to #12 just as Lindsay can. It's highly unlikely though but it can happen. Anyone can get injured or re-injured and thus drop to #12.
Serena will RISE in rank and fast. Look at her rank now.. all she has to do is win a slam. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Dec 16th, 2001, 11:18 AM
Why Lindsay's name is included here? My assesment has nothing to do with my favorite and regardless of injuries.
As you have said, Serena only needs is to win a slam. Thats what Jelena needs too. Come on, this is not a Williams tennis Asociation. Whatever the achievement of Venus only belongs to her.
I know for a fact that serena is a talented and one of the best but so is jelena from what she had done this year.
Dec 16th, 2001, 11:21 AM
Even if Jelena does pass Serena, Serena will not be number 12. Jelena is in the top 10 already, so Serena won't be squeezed off. You've got to find 11 people to be ahead of Serena before Serena is number 12. Right now, there are only 5.
Dec 16th, 2001, 11:35 AM
yeah, I understand you william_rulez.
I just cant stand that everybody is laughing for someone has to bet for serena. Why not laugh at jelena too. Theres not much difference. By the way Serena was before number 4 and slides back to as low as 10 or 11 this year, while jelena is climbing up.
Laughing is justifiable if I chose Lindsay/Venus/Martina regardless of injuries. No way this three could drop below top 10 this year. But as I have said, if its possible with the girls named on the poll specially jelena, why not Serena.
Dec 16th, 2001, 11:48 AM
I disagree They are two different calibre of players. Serena plays few tourneys and look at her ranking. Serena won a slam and made it to a final. Jelena plays many tourneys and Serena is still ahead of her. Common sense tells us that Serena only needs to play more to be up there with Lindsay/Hingis/Venus?Jennifer. In fact she has a winning record over the #1 player. Jelena doesn't. Serena may not be in top 5 but her game is just as good. Jelena needs some more time to be up there with the top power players. Mark my words. If Serena stays healthy she will only RISE in ranks, and I shall bump this thread when it happens. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> Jelena is damn good but nto as great as Serena is now. IMHO of course.
Dec 16th, 2001, 12:07 PM
Well. I'll have to say Lindsay. cause Serena always beats her shitless and Serena is favored for the number 12 position at the moment. Maybe Lindsay will be 13 then.
Dec 16th, 2001, 12:14 PM
This one is really LAUGHABLE!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!
Come on Guys, dont take this personally. Lindsay ends number 1 or 2 for the last 5 years. make a WISH!!!!!
As I have said, Serena was once before number 4 but slides back to 10 or 11 this year.
I really cant see any point that Serena is being benefitted of what her sister has achieved.
Dec 16th, 2001, 12:15 PM
By the way A4, dont hide on your Junior membership. Show who u are.
Dec 16th, 2001, 02:17 PM
i voted other cause hopefully Anna will be somewhere near there.... <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">
Dec 16th, 2001, 02:22 PM
LOL@You guys! I did not know this could bring in arguments! <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Hey Qweenlindsay<br />You gave your opinion and I gave mine too. As you say, don't take it personal. You forgot to add a few more reasons why Serena is ranked where she is, for example, she plays just over half what the current number one plays and it still ranked 6th. She made more money than the current number one player. Translation: She routinely beats top quality opposition in top quality competitions anytime she decides to play as opposed to winning lesser tournaments carrying less money in a depleted field. Plus she consistently beats the current number one player. So if this player is still seen as a contender for the number twelve position and her claim to fame, money and talent is seen to rest on the achievements of her sister, then I'm within my rights to view a player she almost always beats, to get to the 12 position before serena does, right? Tell you what, Queen, I prefer looking beyond a ranking position, to reasons why a particular player is ranked where she is. Makes life more interesting with much more complex analysis and nuances, wouldn't you agree? And by the way, I'm still humbly yours, A4, a junior member, though, I wish I were a moderator. Much more prestigious, I think.

QUEENLINDSAY: Fine lets just say Serena was in the #12 position, but OMG look what happened, she keeps beating Lindsay Davenport in the 4th round of the slams and OMG Lindsays ranking is #13 now that Serena just beaten her again. I guess you don't know if Serena would be at the #12 position how your poor 'lil Lindsay could be beaten in the 4th round by her and I think Lindsay doesn't want that happening. Oh, wait I thought you were a Lindsay fan, as a Lindsay fan you should know she doesn't want that to happen. <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
Dec 17th, 2001, 06:02 AM
I never knew that my statement would turned out to bash my favorite Lindsay again.
I know this arguement will never stop again.<br />What I'm pointing out here before is that Jelena & Serena's have almost equal chances of getting to be out of top 10. Serena's been out of top 10 this year and this not NEW to her.
With regards to Lindsay being number 13, MAKE A WISH!!!!! Pls read the word that is coming out of my mouth!!!!! MAKE A WISH!!!!
Dec 17th, 2001, 06:04 AM
QueenLindsay why does Serena have a winning record over Lindsay if her tennis is as good or about the same as Jelena's? Anyone can see that Serena is gonna rise in rank and not drop to #12. She keeps crushing those ranked ahead of her (except Venus:-)) Oh well I am gonna look u up when Serena trounces to the top. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Dec 17th, 2001, 06:11 AM
Well as most of ya'll know, Jennifer is my favorite. But lately I have to admit that is seems that Jennifer has been slipping. I hope she is not content with just winning two grand slams. She needs to keep up the hard work. I don't want to see the "1996-1998" Jennifer show up again, losing in the first rounds to the likes of "Suzy Jones", "Peggy Sue McFly"...etc.....

LINDSAY # 13?????
GET REAL!!!!!!!!<br />AS QUEENLINDSAY SAYS
make a <br /><fontsize=5 color=red>WISH!!!!
Dec 17th, 2001, 11:01 PM
Davenfan, QUEENLINDSAY. A4, dawn maree, BECCA, you all seem to be knowledgable fans. How about you come over to the 500 Word OZ Challenge and place a wager. Persons with strong opinions such as yourselves is exactly what that thread needs.

Davenfan and Queenlindsay, are you one and the same? I notice you are both from Syracuse and keep propping each other up. Well, this may be my last word here. I just don't see why you should percieve my opinions as bashing Lindsay, since all I said about her with Serena were perfectly true. I used those to back up my opinions. In contrast,you opined that Serena's success and recognition were due to the successes of her sister, an opinion I find ridiculous, to say the least, but which I respect your absolute right to. I didn't even dispute Serena's number 12 position. Why don't you accept my right to nominate anyone I feel to a position? Serena is about equal to Jelena? Then my middle name is Queenlindsay, but anyway, thats your opinion too. Have fun making wishes.<br />By the way, I sincerely hope Jencap doesn't fall and she comes back big. Thats another of my favorites.
