After today it asured me that if she can't get passed a third round on her beloved clay then she has ready begun to plumit. She won't be number one by the USO. She won't defend Roland Garros, Eastbourne title and definetly not her Wimbledon SF and her Rogers Cup title isn't looking to be defended either. She might not even be #1 come the olympics.

I think she'll just about fend off the other players until then, as players such as Ivanovic also have a lot of points to defend over the summer and Henin's gap is healthy. I think she will lose the number one ranking by the end of the USO but obviously anything at all could happen. She could keep it until long after the USO or she could lost it before Wimbledon!

Yes she will she's got a sizeable lead, if she fails to defend her RG title, she can always count on her pledged superdelegates.

:spit:

No I don't think she will. I don't see how she can get it together in time. It hinges on how she does at RG, unless it's a SF or better then I will say she can get things together. If not then she will be dropping points left, right and centre.

Unless she finds a way to hit those lucky shots again...I doubt it.

Not if she doesn^t start winning some tournaments soon! Is she still playing Rome? If she is healthy, she should. Maybe she can play her way back into form. If her knee is still injured she should rest till Paris, then have an operation if needed.

She will lose after USA open,I kinda feel sorry for her.She earned that ranking last year and even if she loses the ranking she can come back in 2009.I would rather have Henin as no.1 than Ana or pova.

No! I think Justine will lose her #1 ranking by the end of Wimbledon at the latest. Not sure who'll take over though, possibly Serena if she keeps dominating like she has been!!

I wish but unfortunately Serena still has a way to go, though if she continues her great form it won't be too long!

Hopefully Jelena beaks through and seizes the #1 spot.

I actually wouldn't mind Ana taking over the #1 spot, as long as its not Henin or pova. She can keep the seat warm til Serena takes back over this summer.

If Ana gets the #1 ranking I hope she has a Grand Slam title by then or this board will be unbearable

She won´t get out of this slump, because the same happened in 2004-2005 and it will repeat again... Sharapova/Ivanovic will soon overtake Henin

:weirdo: What are you all smoking? This is a 7time slam champion!!!! She's been here before. She hasn't lost her RG crown yet and she's still a big threat on grass. That and the fact that as reigning USO and YEC champ, it will be hard to knock her off unless she starts losing early every tournament which WILL NOT HAPPEN.

Great champions know how to bounce back

If you lose to Marion Bartoli on grass, you cannot be considered a threat... Also, she almost lost to a heavily injured Serena, so she is by no means a threat on grass

Venus lost to Karolina Sprem and Serena lost to Jill Craybas. Are they no longer threats too? She is obviously a threat.

If you lose to anyone in the SEMIFINALS of wimbledon you are a threat. If you are a two time finalist, you are a threat. What are you talking about?

To be credible and not pretender, only those who hold major title should replace JH, in case slump continues. So far within the CY, Venus( Current wimby champ) and sharapova (ausopen) are two credible players to become no.1. JH current no 1, still most credible ( FO, USO and YEC).

Henin actually doesn't have many points from here until the US Open. She gained a shit load during the fall season so she's going to be #1 for quite some time.

W RG, W Eastbourne, SF Wimbledon, W Toronto, W USO = 3155. Those alone put her at # 6.

That's a lot of points with the way she is playing. She'll rebound. But to ask her to conjure up 2007 form is a mighty task.

Only way someone else can be # 1 before the USO is if someone wins both RG and Wimbledon. And I think we know who is going to do that. :drool:

She did the same thing in 2002. Got to # 1 at Wimbledon. Coincidence?

she has over 2000 points to defend up to the USO.. one hell of a lot. doubt she will defend that stack. however ivanovic has a lot to defend too. sharapova and williams have less to defend, and can attack for no.1 i think

ACTUALLY this is the stretch were Henin won many of her points... Didnt she play like 1 tourny other than the YEC in the fall?...so no....However, I dont know if she'll lose the ranking Because Shes got the US OPEN, AND the YEC holding her ranking.... Venus has wimbledon too many factors.. as someone said for someone to take her spot they'd have to win both WIMbledon and Paris.. The only person who could reasonably do that is Serena, and i dont think she will... and even if she did shes still so far behind.... Ana, Jelena, Ivanovic Kuznetsova does anyone actually expect them to do the Paris/ Wimbledon Double which is so rare to begin with?

She may have it going into the Open but it'll definately be up for grabs at that tournament

Justine could lose in 3rd or 4th round of the French to the likes of Pennetta, Serbotnik, Schiavone, AMG, Alona, Cornet or another clay court specialist. With the way she playing right now whichever one of these players is in her quarter of the draw will think they have a huge chance.
