I think she will, and if not this year, than probably next. She continues to climb up the ranking even though with however far she gets, people think that will be her best. She has a lot of points to defend but not too many at the Slams(except US). She plays lots of tournaments but she seems fine plus she has very few points to defend during the Asian Fall Season. She may be a counter puncher but she sure is a good one!http://chadanielle.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/caroline-wozniacki-of-denmark.jpg

no, shes only made it past the 4th round of a major ONCE.. Serena basically has the number 1 ranking locked until the US OPEN and by then.....Clijsters/ Henin and company will have gotten their rankings up.... Caro is on the way down...not up...

I think unless she breaks through at a major then she's not going to be #1

There are two ways to look at it. Do I think she'll be the best player on the tour? No. Ever? No, not ever. That said, were Safaina, Jankovic or Ivanovic ever the best player on the tour? No. But they all held the #1 ranking.

Wozniacki can get there. As long as the worst third of her perfomances aren't counted in the rankings, and Venus, Henin and Clijsters are there to knock off Serena for her in various tournaments. She'll need help. But there's a lot of that around.

Safina was clearly the best player on the tour during the clay season- until the final. And Jankovic was the best player during the fall when she ended the year number one.

Which is more of an indictment of the rest of the tour than anything.

Being the World No.1 used to have significance and prestige...
It is an embarrassment to women's tennis to think that someone like Caroline Wozniacki will ever share that accolade with the likes of Evert, Navratilova, Graf, Seles, Hingis, Williams and Henin.

Thank God Justine, Kim and (I hate to say it) Maria are on their way back to provide a bit of a buffer for Serena from the lower classes (i.e. the worst No.1's in history...Jankovic, Safina and Ivanovic and the likes of Wozniacki)

If she turns off her pusher mode, she has a chance within the next 5-6 years.

If she works hard to improve and develop her currently somewhat one dimentional game I think she has a good chance in the future. But not within the next year.

^^ I agree on what said here... not in a year, but maybe when SW retires...

btw, Can she reach No. 2 by winning Dubai?

Not this year. With Clijsters and Henin back it would be a major achievement if she's still top five by the end of the year. But she has time on her side, so who knows what will happen in the future? It all depends on how she and others in her age group (or younger) develop. Anything is possible at this point. 2009 may turn out to be her best ever year. You often see players having to take a step back after they took a huge leap forward in the previous year. But she seems to have a good head on her shoulders so she might be able to hold on or even improve.

I don't mind her style of play. Whatever wins you matches is the right tactic to use. Having said that, the danger is that her opponents may learn how to deal with her defensive style that has so far frustrated most of them into making obscene numbers of UE. So it would be nice if she tries to develop a more offensive plan B to fall back on if plan A doesn't work, or doesn't work anymore against some opponents.

I don't think she would reach other slam final this year. But after all the rest of the other women Belgians and WS retire, it's possible. But Tennis is dead.

Can't really see her doing it in the next year, when her USO and Madrid final points come off she'l probably drop out of the top 5 unless she makes another deep slam run before then.

If she is no.1,I will think the wta system is wrong.
Please remember Wozniacki only once enter GS more than 4th round.

Nope, little chance of that. With the Belgians back, there are simply too many players around that she will be vulnerable against. Particularly in the Slams where they do show up.

Caro should reach #2 sometime in May, since Safina has a ton of points to defend, but it seems unlikely that she'll be passing Serena for the #1 spot anytime soon. If she does it in the next year, she'd probably have to do it before the US Open, and that would be very difficult to pull off. Then if she misses that window she may have to wait a long time before she has another opportunity. But she's still only 19 and she's still statistically the best player born after 1987, so it seems inevitable that she'll reach #1 sooner or later. And Azarenka will likely reach #1 eventually as well.

I think her best chance is this summer before her USO final points come off.
Dinara has a bad back, Sveta has FO to defend. Vika has Miami.
She has to catch Serena. Not easy, but if a slump or early upset at a major, Caro has a chance.

But a big chance to be 2 seed at FO and Wimbledon

Feb 20th, 2010, 12:05 AM
Serena is pretty secure in #1 until Wimbledon. She has next to nothing to defend outside of the Miami final -- which I believe she'll easily defend and take it one step further. It's really up to Serena. Judging on how many opportunities she has to earn points during the clay season, I don't see anyone coming close to Serena.

Wozniacki will pass Safina #2, for sure, during the clay warmups.

If Safina, Jankovic, Sanchez Vicario can be number 1, Caro definetely can and will be number 1 someday

But as long as she is not losing to the likes of Li or Peer at early stages of tournaments...

Arantxa is in a totally different league from the rest of the players you mention. And from Caro.

I'm another one who underestimated her, perhaps not quite on the level of some other posters but even so, I didn't think she could get to number one so fast and I was wrong.

That "somewhat one dimentional game" turned out to be very much up to the task at hand, so respect to her for that.

I didn't notice this poll a year ago. If I had I probably would have voted "Not by next February, but eventually". Back then Serena had a secure lock on the #1 spot. Noone could have predicted her being sidelined for 8 months. Or Justine's elbow. Or Kim missing the clay season etc. Without these factors it's far from certain Caro would have been #1 now. But hey, Caro hasn't been untroubled by injuries, either. And even if Serena hadn't cut her foot she might not have bothered to play the Tier 1s where Caro has gained the majority of her points, so who knows?
