View Full Version : SERENA goes into week 2 in the no. 1 spot

SERENA looks to have a very good shot at equalling VENUS' 12 week span at the #1 spot at this time.


VENUS will have her work cut out for her in wresting this precious jewel from her little sister. :)

Congratulations Serena :).

She really fought off the toughest competition to hold onto the no.1 spot this week :rolleyes::eek::p;).

Serena is about to lay claim to the #1 spot as her own if she stays healthy. She is now use to taking all comers to the wood shed and handing out "old fashions". But it is really hard when she hands them to her big Sis! :eek:

Tee Rexx, Serena will be holding on to the number one spot for a number of months :). She will probably pass Venus and Cappy in number of weeks at Number One. But Venus will probably be ready at the US Open!

Yes, I think that Serena is in for a long ride at the top. She only has 12 tournaments and is at #1. I think that's unprecedented. Good for her.

The more time that passes, the happier I feel about her being there. As long as the last name is Williams, I'm thrilled.

Serena's spot is safe till year end I believe... unless Venus starts playing tournaments in fall, or Jennifer or Monica go on a tear.

Serena should remain #1 through the Tour Championship. I'd expect her to perform in the same fashion she did last year if not better. And she will not have to win the US Open to remain #1. I'd think that getting to the semi or finals would probably seal the #1 ranking until the Australian Open. Why? If she plays any tournaments after the US Open like she is scheduled to play Linz, she will have earned so many points as to put the #1 spot out of contention provided Venus does not play a number of post-US open tournaments and go on a tear like Lindsay did last year. I guess we shall see...:bounce:

Serena is unstoppable and she will be the #1 player for a long time. I expect her to get at least 10 slams before she retires.:)

Is that coming from Dawn (Venus Lover;)) Marie?

What is so bad coming good thought for Serena from a Venus fan Gumby? :)

Dawn's actually right :P :D ;) :) :) :bounce:
