Elena W 9316
Dinara F 9150
Serena F 8832
Elena F 8716

Jelena R4 8580



Most important Scenarios:
-If jelena makes the final she's no.1
-If dinara wins the title she's no.1
-If serena wins the title she's no.1 if Jelena doesn't make the final
-If elena wins the title she's no.1 if Jelena doesn't make the final

-If jelena makes the semifinal she's no.1 if dinara, serena, elena don't win the title

-If dinara makes the final she's no.1 if jelena doesn't make the semifinal and serena, elena don't make the final.
-If serena makes the final she's no.1 if jelena doesn't make the semifinal and dinara doesn't make the final.

-If elena makes the final she's no.1 if jelena doesn't make the quarterfinal and dinara doesn't reach the final.


Careerhigh ranking - top5 (will be updated when there are less scenariopossibilities)

Dinara Safina: high #2 Will reach number 1 according to above scenarios.

Elena Dementieva: high #4
Will reach #3 ranking if:
-she does 1 round better then serena after both reach third round, and venus , vera does not win the title.
-she does 1 round better then safina after both reach semifinal.

That's it for now. :D Will be updated accordingly! :bounce:

Safina. Please don't tarnish the Number 1 ranking anymore. Unless you win a slam. Then it's okay.

I think it's great to see someone take the number one ranking by winning a grand slam. If any of these four girls were to take the title and rise to number one, I would be happy for them and think they are deserving.

Definetly. She has a very hard draw.

Her next match is against a big server who´s the homecrowd favourite. So she´ll be on Rod Laver Arena in a night match slugging it out with 100% of the crowd against her.

Then she has to face cibulkova who´s been very impressive, in the shape of her life. Besides that, she´s a great mover. Something lena has struggles against in the past and she lost their last match.

And then it´s venus, who´s a big server AND great mover.

Elena has to surpass the elena from last year if she wants to get through this draw and get a career high ranking.

Venus taken out of the equation. Elena getting a careerhigh ranking has a higher chance now.

UPDATE 25 januari

Now that jelena is out, we know certain scenarios. Jelena is likely to lose no.1 now. She will lose no.1 if dinara makes the semifinal or elena/serena make the final.

This means:
-If dinara, elena,serena win the title they are no.1 for sure!

The one who benefits most is Elena Dementieva, since if she makes the final and dinara doesn't make the final she's no.1 as well!:eek:

#1 in WTA doesn't mean anything right now

#1 in WTA doesn't mean anything right now

Of course it matters :weirdo: If you get to no.1 you're only 1 of 20 players who's ever done it. Even though it's easier to get to no.1 right now who wouldn't want the glory of being added to that list, even if it's just for 1 week?

I would sign for 1 week immediatly.

its better for the bio if you have "former #1" instead of "former world #4"
that just sounds insulting.

Dinara made the semi's, so jelena is out of the race.

3 people left! And maybe even less after the next few hours.

Jelena Jankovic’s loss to Marion Bartoli cost her more than a big check at the end of the Australian Open.

The Serbian star will now lose the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour No. 1 ranking to one of three other top players on Monday.

Jankovic had an outside chance of holding onto the top spot after her fourth round defeat, but because Dinara Safina reached the semifinals, Jelena will be ousted after seventeen consecutive weeks.

An Australian Open singles title would guarantee former world number one Serena Williams or newcomers Dinara Safina and Elena Dementieva the number one ranking. However, each of the trio still has a chance to claim the top spot without winning the Grand Slam.

Elena Dementieva
The Russian could become the 19th player since the inception of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Computer Ranking System (second Russian, along with Maria Sharapova) was introduced on November 3, 1975.

Dementieva needs to:
- Win the singles title
- Reach the finals if Safina does not also reach the finals

Dinara Safina
Like Dementieva, the Russian could become the 19th player since the inception of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Computer Ranking System (second Russian, along with Maria Sharapova) was introduced on November 3, 1975.

Safina needs to:
- Win the singles title
- Reach at least SF and neither Dementieva nor S.Williams advance to the finals

Serena Williams
The American is aiming to return to the World No.1 ranking for the third time in her career. S.Williams has held the World No.1 ranking for 61 weeks (57 weeks: 7/8/02 to 8/10/03 and 4 weeks: 9/8/08 to 10/5/08).

Williams needs to:
- Win the singles title
- Reach the finals if Safina does not also reach the finals

Please, enough with short-lived #1. Safina or Dementieva #1 for what, a few weeks at best ? It would totally discredit the #1 position. The WTA doesn't need that mess and an umpteenth #1 player. That makes Serena the only credible #1, especially given her achievements.
