I don`t know if she can reach the number 1 ranking by the end of this year or not.after she wins the US~Open and probably a few indoor tournies like Zurich,Filderstadt and the other lesser tournaments,will she have enough points to go back to where she belongs,at the TOP of the ranking?

nope...shes defending 2637 points until the end of the year, which you might notice is the same number of her rankings points...the points she has to defend in her 9 tournaments throughout the year range from 140-434 points...just something to add to that...this year the tour champs are gonna be held one week later than last year, so her points are gonna be takien off a week earlier, which would cause her to fall momentarily below the top ten...

WELCOME BACK LINDSAY

A lot of things could happen, but as of now, i'd say no for several reasons.
1) She wasn't beating the Sisters before she was injured.
2) She's an older player and doesn't seem to be as hungry.
3) The Sisters are playing better than ever.
3) The Sisters could go back to short tennis schedules
4) Lindsay's new slim and trim look could allow her to raise her performance.
I just don't see it happening, though.

Lindsay is not going to be #1 for a long time. Remember someone named Serena? Remember someone named Venus? Lindsay is 3-14 against them since 2000. She will have to go through both of them to get to the top spot and it's NOT going to happen either this year or the next, LOL. Gimme a break!

Lindsay can get to no.1 and she doesn't really need to beat the sisters to do it. It won't be for a while though because she's defending loads until 2003.
Of course, if Serena carries on in the same vein no one (including Venus) is even going to get a look in at no.1 for a long, long time :eek:.
Jul 23rd, 2002, 04:46 AM
i donīt think so. she should defend many points. Also, Serena will be the one for a long time. I ignore what would happen on the next Us open, but we will probably see a new episode of Williams War, and Seles, Davenport and the other will be forced to see it again

Not for awhile. But based on these results--certainly not impossible. :)
Sorry if these stats go all crooked, I don't know how to format them to behave! :o

Serena or Venus would have little impact on Lindsay becoming #1. Remember, Hingis played like crap all of 2001 but showed you don't have to be the best at the time to get the top ranking. Numerically, it is very possible for Lindsay to become #1 again. However, I doubt she will become the best player on tour again, but I'd love to be proven wrong.
