View Full Version : #1? Who?

Aug 13th, 2008, 01:53 AM
With all the furore of JJ being crowned #1 I was wondering who people believe is a "deserving" #1.


Ana Ivanovic - well she was at the helm of the game previously. But her reign as #1 was shit, to put it bluntly. And she is sucking as much as JJ right now, only without the drama. So why does she deserve it that much more? Two Slam Finals and a Slam, I hear you say. True...but she is still a rather shoddy #1, the way she plays sometimes is just :weirdo:...I don't think a #1 should be like that, personally.

Svetlana Kuznetsova - I'm a fan. But no, just no. I really don't want her to get anywhere near that...she does not deserve it at all.

Serena Williams - legitimate contender. But Slam performances?

Venus Williams - Wimbledon and...?

Marion Bartoli - definite contender. She did well at Stanford and bravely skipped the Olympics. She is probably favourite.

Larche de Brito - If only she had come a couple of years earlier.

Justine Henin - should we just pretend she never retired?!

*Ye, I know the real sages of this forum are going to wade in with "Whoever amassed the most ranking points deserve it"...but that is schmuck, so don't bother.

Wimbledon and...?

I'm not saying she's dominance at every tournament she plays, but currently she has a semifinals at the US Open and Bangalore, quarterfinals in Miami, Rome, and Melbourne.

Nadia Petrova truly deserves it.

You missed Hantuchova.

I think the WTA should just poll TennisForum each week to determine who is going to be #1. Seems logical enough to me, certainly as much as the current system employed.
