Dementieva could climb to her highest ranking thanks to jankovic losing. All she has to do is equal the round of Jankovic. Also Venus is now in striking distance of the top three. With a win at Miami and if Dementieva fails to make the quarters and Jankovic the semis i think she'll be back in the top 3.....:eek:

let's hope they all get gastroenteritis when Miami starts so that Vee can take it home + a top three position.:devil:

Vera's got some points to defend, She made the semi's of Miami last year. If she wins IW and then does better than Venus at Miami with Demetieva not making it to the quarters and jankovic not making the semis i think she can be top 3. if im not mistaken

Im sorry Vera top 3 would give me quite a problem.

What does Serena need to do so Venus becomes number 1 :D

nothing, at the rate things are going all venus has to do is have a good (semifinals) showing at RG and she will be number 1

Elena better get that top3 ranking or i´m pissed. :fiery: Jelena is not playing well so this is the time to strike. There's little difference between them at the start of miami.

COME ON ELENA!

Lena will pass JJ after Miami, but i have a feeling she won't be top 3 for long. Venus is getting closer and closer.

Venus will definitely deserve her place in the Top 3 if she has a good run in Miami.

she has to defend 450 points as she reached SF of Miami last year. She'll have to do very well at Miami and hope JJ, ED and Venus won't do well especially ED AFTER WINNING IW

In addition, Vera has 600 points from Charleston last year to defend after Miami and she'll still lose 130 points even if she wins Charleston (It's a Premier tournament this year which awards 470 ranking points to the winner)

I think most of us elenafans are already happy with her being that for 1 week. :lol: We've been waiting for ages. :o That careerhigh of no.4 looks so grim on her record. I mean, even petrova's been higher...

After that she's got a lot to defend in the clayseason, BUT she has chances to improve as well. Venus and clay is always a gamble and safina has even more to defend then elena so nothing is so sure right now. VeraZ has very little to defend though!

Elena has about 1700 points to defend.
Safina has about 2200 points to defend.
Ana has about 2390 points to defend.
Jelena has about 1800 points to defend.
Vera has about 1000 points to defend.

So basically i think the top5 after french open will consist of:

Venus, Serena, Safina, Dementieva and Zvonareva.(In any order) The chance both serbs are going out of the top5 is VERY high right now. Ana has to defend the french and jelena is playing like shit and has to defend a tier1 title and a slamSF... I doubt they will be top5 after the french.

Seriously....Vera a top 3? :o

Seriously....Vera a top 3? :o

She has her chances, she's the one who has to defend the least points until after the french open besides venus. I doubt she'll get there though. I just can't see her ranked above 2 of the 4 players ranked above her.(Serena, Venus, Dinara, Elena) I don't think venus and serena will let go anymore so she would have to become the best ranked russian... That shouldn't be possible. I could see her ranked #4 though.

So true

Elena shares her best ranking with Dokic , Grosjean , Flake , Ferrer , Bjorkman :o

Ugh, she has to get out of that list. :o And FAST, she has to do it at miami. After miami it could be too late. There will be a lot more competition if she doesnt do it now.

Totally agree that Elena deserves to get to the top 3 at least once. For someone who has been to the semis of all 4 slams and to 2 other finals, she should have been top 3 at some point in her career. She is an accomplished player and she has shined in big moments at times in her career. For her very loyal and tortured fans I hope she gets there.:bounce::wavey:

If I am right, they will take Charleston out in the after-Miami ranks which makes Dementieva's chances a bit slighter as she has 640 points to defend and JJ has 920 while Venus has just 250 :p

Jelena will not get her Charleston discounted out of her top results as its not there so she'll lose 700.
Dementieva will lose 250 from Miami and 170 from Charleston as her 390 will be replaced by 220.
Venus will lose 250 from Miami.

Once JJ and Dementieva reach same round in Miami, Jelena stays in Top 3.
Once JJ and Dementieva get kicked before semi and Venus wins, Venus is No. 3 or once Venus is in final and Dementieva & JJ lose first round

Are you sure about that? I think once the Miami points come off, Dementieva is actually gonna be higher ranked than Jankovic....

Jankovic is defending 700. Dementieva is defending 250. There is a 314 gap between them currently. Take Miami off and you have a 136 gap in favor of Elena. Elena needs to do one round better than Jelena at Miami. At Charleston, however, Elena is defending 390 and Jelena is defending 220. So it may be short, but Elena can rise to #3.

Dementieva can be higher ranked than JJ on 6 Apr 09 by reaching the same round as JJ at Miami

Gotcha, thought she made SF. Even better for her and her likelihood of being #3 (and keeping it after Charleston).

I disagree, even if Venus does return to the top 3, I can still see Elena being #2 at least if she does get to the top 3 with Dina having a bunch to defend and not playing as well as Lena.

In any event I want Lena to win her first slam and the ranking will fall into place.

Justine was NOT guaranteed to hold the #1 ranking forever, even if she continued to play well there are no guarantees in life. Roger held it for a long time to, denying Rafa for 3 years but it eventually ended. Acting as if the spot was solidified even with Justine struggling at the start of the year is ridiculous in my opinion.

As for player obtaining the #1 ranking now without winning slams that's the WTA fault so go blame them.
