View Full Version : Safina back with #1 ranking


pov
Oct 23rd, 2009, 03:29 PM
From the WTA When the rankings are released on Monday, October 26, Safina will be ranked No.1 and therefore the top seed at the season-ending event. After holding the top ranking for 25 consecutive weeks (April 20 to October 11), she will replace Serena Williams at the top when points earned at Doha last year come off. In 2009, Safina has earned more ranking points than anyone else.

If you think it's useless, respect yourself and don't post in it. That said I do agree that she's prolly better off without the #1 ranking. Then again, since it's the 2nd time, maybe she'll fare better.

So deserving!!! She is the best number one in history and has had an amazing couple of months just look at her record in her last 4 tournaments (3 wins and 4 losses:tape: ), losing to Rezai in her first match at Toronto than the amazing performance at the US Open, a 3 set win over number 167 Ragowska, another 3 set win over number 67 Barrois, and than finally the inevitable 3d round loss to number 72 Kvitova. Than she took her number one tennis to Tokyo, where she lost in her first match to ranked 132 in the world, 18 year old Miss Chang. Ending her streak at Beijing, with an amazing win over Vinci and a suprising loss over the goat that is number 226 in the world, and 20 year old, Zhang!!!
She has silenced all the critics with her number one dominance!!! Perhaps the best number one ever to play on the tour and a valid example that the Wta tour and rankings are in fine shape.:devil:

Sorry bud, first of there is no attempt needed as the mockery that is the current state of the number one ranking is known by everyone.
Second of all my point was not about who deserves it and who doesnt but obviously you didnt get that;)(maybe you should get an award) and when you make a thread like the one you did which has been repeated over and over again well sarcasm is granted.:wavey:

I am not a Jelena fan but lets get serious, in 2008 when she finnished at number one she had just made the finals of the US Open losing to Serena, than Quarterfinals of Tokyo losing to Kuzzie 7-5 in the third, having had match point, next she won Beijing crushing Kuzzie in the final, next she won Stuttgart, and after that Moscow. (12 straight wins). As the number one she lost in the year end champs Semis to Venus in three hard sets, Venus ended up winning the tour champs. That year she also won Rome and made the Semis of the Australian and French. She made atleast 12 Semifinals or better, and reached atleast the QF of 20 of the 22 tournaments she entered. I dont remember her having the losses that Dinara has had this year or Jelena having a lossing streak as the number one player which is just:tape:!
Her 2008 record was 65-19 and she only had 2 losses to players out of the top 50, one to number 60 Tanasugarn in the 4th round of Wimbledon while she was ranked number 3 and the other at the beginning of the year to number 54 Yan Zi while ranked at number 4. Sure for a number one, its not that great but atleast its not embarrasing.

No, Jelena didnt win a major title and maybe she didnt deserve the number one but she didnt get embarrased by Serena at the Australian winning just three games, at Roland Garros by Kuznetsova winning only six, at Wimbledon winning a mere one game against Venus, and at the US Open losing to 72 ranked Kvitova. Not to mention the two losses against a player ranked 226 in the world and another slightly better at 132. If there was ever a competition for worst number one in history well than Dinara wins the whole cake!!!!;)

This arbitrary flip flopping between #1s is something I really don't like about the rankings at all. For me a ranking system is just plain bad if a player can arbitrarily jump to #1 without doing better than the players she overtakes in the tournament this week.

Congratz to Dinara - it's deserved of course - but she's not doing anything right now to give a visible and obvious reason for it and she's definitely not been playing like a #1 for several months now.

For a start: I disagree. You get 2000 points for a Slam win. The most you get on the WTA tour for winning one of the four biggest tournaments is 1000. For every other tourney you get less. That's absolutely correct IMO.

Oh, and I don't know how much you get for the YEC...1500 points? That would be a bit too much, but Safina is not at #1 because of her ponts from the YEC :lol:

By the way I love how a lot of the Safina fans got their panties in a twist and bad rep me for my comments, I mean if its not true, than ignore it, why so riled up, whats really bothering you??? Is that how you prove a point.:tape:
And the thread starter makes a thread like this and expects everyone to say what??? Safina is the most deserving number player, she is the best in history but she has lost to the number 226, 132, and 72 in the past three tournaments she has entered and yet she is at number one again.
Congrats!!! Its very good for the tour. One thing is to be a fan of a player and another is to be delusional!;)

Right now Dinara suck indeed , i can't deny that because it's true i don't even expect her to win one single match at the YEC , i believe she can but it's not the same thing .
But saying that she's the worst #1 in history is too much IMO , yeah she chocked at some pretty bad moments ( mostly Ao/RG Final and Wimbly's SF ) but other than that her year was pretty good , even while not playing her best Tennis she managed to stay #1 for a long time .
I'm not delusionnal she's not the best #1 ever and she's probably not the best player of the year either but what you said is what has been said for the past 6 month over and over again , people just love bashing her but forget sometimes to respect her at the same time ( not talking about you ) but i guess it's a hard thing to do :shrug:

I did not mean to offend any of her fans, I am sure its not easy hearing the stuff people say about Dinara. Like I said I do think she is a very talented player who has been very inconsistent towards the end of the year. She seems like a hard worker but I think the pressure is just too much for her to handle at the moment.
I really have nothing against her and when I say she is the worst number one, I do not mean tennis wise, I am talking about worst number one based on her results. I do think she is a very talented girl and has it in her to be number one I just think she didn't earn it this year, she didn't consistently show it in the later rounds of the bigger tournaments or slams and especially as of late and as of next week she is number one again. It is not her fault and she doesn't determine the number one ranking, I know that but its not about that, its about the ranking, the system and the current state of the tour, I am not irritated at Safina but at the whole tour and how low its sunk at different times this year.
I have been a fan of Tennis and the WTA since I was a little boy and I will continue to be so no matter what but it really troubles me to see it on a downward spiral and angers me to see people poking fun of it and actually having a valid point to do so.
If Safina was to win a grand slam, year end champ and play the tennis I am sure she is capable of playing, or at least justify her ranking by consistently performing well in tournaments I would be the first to congratulate her and her fans. So I am sorry if I have offended her fans but I am not sorry for having an opinion and addressing it.;)

How on earth Safina is getting back to number one?...How did she get there in the first place?. If Serena does not finish the year as number one I hope she never wins another match in her life.

it's not serena's fault :weirdo: the wta instead of using 52 weeks are now using 50...meaning serena has more points coming off than dinara and therefore she drops below dinara....

Right now Dinara suck indeed , i can't deny that because it's true i don't even expect her to win one single match at the YEC , i believe she can but it's not the same thing .
But saying that she's the worst #1 in history is too much IMO , yeah she chocked at some pretty bad moments ( mostly Ao/RG Final and Wimbly's SF ) but other than that her year was pretty good , even while not playing her best Tennis she managed to stay #1 for a long time .
I'm not delusionnal she's not the best #1 ever and she's probably not the best player of the year either but what you said is what has been said for the past 6 month over and over again , people just love bashing her but forget sometimes to respect her at the same time ( not talking about you ) but i guess it's a hard thing to do :shrug:
I can't think of a worse #1 but will really be happy for her when she finally wins a slam, that is if she does win one any time soon.

Daniela Sanowa will only win a slam when she is no longer no.1 and thats a fact,she can take the no.1 ranking 50 times over...her win will only come when she is faraway from no.1 and that coach is no longer in her corner.

Dinara Safina has regained the women's tennis world number one spot from Serena Williams. The Russian climbed back up on Monday in the tenth change at the top of the WTA rankings since Belgian Justine Henin retired in May 2008.

Continued success Dinara!:bounce:

Now come on Serena.. get it back! lol
