If so, who and what do they possess on the court to enable them to become #1?

Discuss.

Nope, those 3 are becoming the consistent top 3 that we always see on the ATP tour.

Well, Serena is definitely the best player in the world. Kvitova always plays Serena close and I think she is the only player that can handle Serena at her best, but Kvitova is inconsistent; so who knows if she will string enough wins to be number one? Same for Serena. Serena might get lazy and flop some Mandatories. Azarenka and Sharapova will be number one most likely due to their calendar consistency. Number one doesn't always mean best.

I think those 3 are a safe bet for the top 3 as well. I use to think Kvitova could come a mix things up but unless she's got her head back in the game she has no chance at becoming #1 in a near future.

I don't see Li moving much higher.

The thing about Petra is I love her old school approach to her game. Doesn't get too out of control on court. Just celebrates when it's needed. Love that.

Kerber is at the point where people are starting to think (including me) she could be garner a better ranking.

Errani isn't going to get much higher. Just doesn't produce the firepower needed to consistently beat the current top three.

Petrova is a contender IMO because she's been there and possesses the weaponry to beat any of the top current three. The big question as always with her is can she manage her head.

Please discuss other possible #1 contenders...

MashaAzarenka
Dec 28th, 2012, 06:06 AM
For me, the only people outside of the top 3 with a legitimate chance of becoming #1 are Kvitova and Kerber. However, neither of them are consistent enough to string enough good results together and get the ranking where it should be.

If they could work on their fitness and consistency then they could both be serious threats. I just don't think it's gonna happen any time soon though.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Radwanska, based on the points if any of the top 3 flop at the first events of the year she is waiting in the wings to grab the number one spot.

Lucyxx
Dec 28th, 2012, 06:10 AM
Aga doesn't have the firepower but is a throwback player in her dropshots and slow paced shots.

I think she has proved she can mentally outlast MashaS. Serena is another story. Vika I don't know if we've seen her best yet.

Kvitova has a chance to get in top 3 , but really i don't think that top 3 in the end of 2013 will differ from 2012 , Aza-Masha-Rena might just exchange positions inside top 3.

Of course, i hope no serious injuries will happen with top players next year. I want to see a competitive season

Key for Serena is to do well at AO and FO, olympic points will drop off. Expect her to do well at wimbledon and USO, so she has a chance. But then again, 32 is on its way, princess will slow down at some point. Hopes she wins at least one major on her quest for 18.

If Serena Williams wants to be No.1 player in WTA rankings, she needs to play at least Premier Mandatory (Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid, Beijing) and Premier 5 (Dubai, Rome, Montreal, Cincinnati, Tokyo) tournaments to get enough ranking points. I donīt think Grand Slam tournaments alone would give her enough points if both Vika Azarenka and Maria Sharapova are as consistent as they were in 2012.

I've put yes, but I only put that because I think it's an enitrely realistic possibility.

For the last 12 months, Aga has been one of the most consistent players on tour, and was one match away from being #1. People seem to forget that.

Aside from this, Vika has many, many points to defend this year, Serena is suspect when it comes to injuries and appearing at tournaments and Maria will be as erratic as ever. I don't believe Kvitova can come up with the consistency to mount a serious threat to #1, but she might.

The order of the top 4 thoughout the year will change ALOT and maybe one or two of them will drop out of it.

Radwanska might get there as a Wozniacki like number 1, or might even get there whilst winning a major too. I hope not but Serena and Sharapova are possibly both nearing the end of their best tennis, Serena is 31, and I dont see Maria being a Serena who is still playing championship tennis at 29 and beyond at all, and it is yet to be seen if Azarenka can keep up or build on her 2011 level or not.

I actually think that Kvitova will be the one who will brake the Maria/Vika/Rena pattern at 1# next season :shrug:.

No way in hell Vika is holding on to her ranking with all the points she has to save until March :shrug: with Petra taking the 1# spot until IW, Rena will be 1# after IW till RG, then Maria will take charge and hold it till the USO with a nice showing at Wimbledon and the USO series, with Vika holding it once again till Beijing. Rena to end the year as 1# :yeah:.

It'll be nearly impossible for Petra to take over before Indian Wells. She's currently number 8 and has a semi in Sydney and a semi at the AO to defend. Even if she won Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, I'm not sure if she could do it.

Ranking means nothing. If slamless girls like Safina, Wozniacki and Jankovic have gotten #1 you know it's pointless. It's just a tag now it's lost all meaning. Serena has proven that.

Surely ranking has its benefits: no qualifications, easier draws in theory and byes in the first round. Surely you would like to see your favourite player as No.1 rather than No.10? Serena Williams could have become No.1 this year if she had played enough WTA tournaments.

So, ranking means nothing. The rankings actually mean alot more than the subjective assertions of various "fans". Serena chooses not to play many tournaments throughout the year (giving her a distinct advantage in preparing for slams by the way - a point many ignore) which means she has not been #1 for 12 months on a constistent basis. She was the best for about 10 of the 52 weeks.

I also find it frustrating when people (Serena included) disrespect Premier Mandatories as if they are "easy" or meaningless. Some PMs are as difficult, if not more difficult, than some slams. If you compare Aga's run to the Miami title with Sharapova's run to the French Open title you will (or should, minus the bias and blind favouritism) find Aga's way more impressive. Actually, scratch that. To avoid favouritism, you can even compare Sharapova's run to the final of Miami with her win in RG. She beat one top 10 player in RG. Should she be considered the best in the world for that, and that alone?

People need to get it into their heads that rankings are never wrong.

JoPova
Dec 28th, 2012, 10:12 PM
Radwanska is the only one with a chance, but I don't think it's happening. Azarenka will keep the #1 for the beginning of the season and then, after the AO, Serena is very likely to take over.

I should have said when it comes to the Top10. Being #1 doesn't mean much as the #3 has actually won a slam. (Speaking for example)

I am actually for going for Venus Williams.

Here is an article she did with Neil Harman I hope someone can do i thread for this, as I have not these privileges. Venus has a new member of her team Larry Stefanki, Roddick's old coach.

Hello guys, I recently subscribed to ******************** and I received exclusive features including newsletters. Neil Harman (The Times) conducted an interview with Venus Williams, here is the interview extract below, for those who are a Fan of Venus.

http://www.********************/

Happy Christmas Venus, I hope you have had an enjoyable off season, what have you been upto?

Venus:- Merry Christmas Neil, it has been a really enjoyable but challenging 8 weeks, there hasn’t been a day where I haven’t had something to do. I was in New York for the fashion week with my fashion line Eleven, and I have been also doing photo shoots in order to promote the line. This has been a real passion for me, and it is brilliant that everyone can now buy the line. It will also be very strange seeing other players out there wearing it as well. It was just nice to get home, settle into a routine, and not worry about travelling to the next place, it was a peaceful rest with friends, family and my team.

Will we be seeing any new people on the Eleven Fashion Line, in terms of players on the circuit.

Venus:- Well currently there is myself, Johanna Konta and Varvara Lepchenko . There will be two new additions to the line also. A young up and coming player will be wearing it, her name is Madison Keys who won the America wildcard to play in Australia. I invited her to come down to Florida as her agent is friendly with my father. She is such a brilliant athlete and has a great future ahead of her. She will be wearing the line for a limited period, as she has a deal with Nike, however this is a trial basis. Also I got talking to Kirsten Flipkens at the recent farewell exhibition for Kim Clijsters, and she has stated that she wants to wear the line this season. It is great that people are now becoming familiar with my work.

That is brilliant Venus, I was particularly impressed with your fall collection, it was stunning. Now back to the tennis, how has the off season training been going.

Venus:- INTENSE! I actually don’t think I have worked harder during the off season. Since coming back I had lost some muscle, I am still leaner than I was back in 2010, however I have regained some of that muscle which I had lost due to the syndrome. There was a lot of bench pressing and really working on my core strength and core movement. I had some issues with my back last year, and me and my team wanted to make sure my body was in the best shape possible, for Australia. As you know I have Larry on my team now, he has added some new dimensions to my fitness. I have been doing some kick boxing, to help with my movement and reflexes. It has really helped to strengthen by thigh muscles. He also introduced the dreaded sand hill drills, they make me shiver thinking about them. David and I every morning, and late evening run up them, it is painful but once they are done its worthwhile.

Has Larry rejuvenated your love for tennis and training Venus?

Venus- Tennis is my life Neil, that love and drive for winning never left me, the last two years have been really unfortunate. As in 2010 I was beginning to dominate again, that year I wanted to win the French Open so badly, I was doing well in the clay events, I won Acapulco, Final Of Madrid and Quarters of Stuttgart. Then I got to the 4th Round and lost to Nadia Petrova, I was shattered, I felt really low, so I would say Larry is helping me overcome these mental demons, the love for tennis was always there, maybe sometimes you can want something to much. In terms of training, he is probably making it more fun and yet more challenging at the same time. Im 32, my body is obviously more fragile, and it is important that I am at my complete physical peak when competing, to help reduce the chance of injury. In that area he has really helped me.

So what key aspects have you been working on during the off season?

Venus:-I can truly say all aspects have been worked on, I have tried to give focus to all areas, especially ensuring my movement is very good. These girls are getting stronger and faster, it is vital that you keep improving to keep up with them. However I have been really trying to improve my second serve this year, with my back injury I learned that placement is so important, power maybe isn’t always best. Off course my serve is always going to be powerful, it is my money shot, however diversity is vital. I want to play more doubles as well, I feel it helped me improve so much since my time away. It helped my net play, I love at the net, I will be trying to get there as much as I can, its where I feel most comfortable.

You mentioned that Larry helped you with your mental game, in what way?

Venus:-My father always talked to me about mental lapses which I took on court, I sometimes can begin to back off, and lose the winning position which I had. I have analysed a lot of matches which I have lost, right back from 2000, it was important to see what I was doing wrong, and I noticed that actually I was doing similar things in these matches. In order for me to win more grand slams I need to off course me in top physical shape but I have to stay in these matches mentally, I have to do that for 7 matches, over a best of 3 set scenario. My team and I are really trying to work on that, I have done it 7 times before I want to do it again so badly, the drive and enthusiasm is possibly even stronger than it has ever been.

Is the Slam’s your main focus this year then Venus ?

Venus:-My main focus this year is to be prepared both physically and mentally for each tournament I enter. In tennis you never know which year is going to be your last, and since being diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome, I have learned to be blessed with the gift I have been given and the job I have. My main focus is to enjoy every match, and feel that I gave 100%, and have no regrets. However my real goal is to win both The Australian and French Open, however im not picky I will take any slam, it would be nice to complete the career slam though. Serena always said she wanted everything I had, maybe it’s time for the Big Sis to snatch a few of Serena’s awards (laughs).

Are you looking forward to the 2013 season and what is your main goal ?

Venus:-I look forward to every season, as they all bring different challenges and new endeavours. This season will be different as there has been some changes, however I looked forward to what it will bring. My immediate goal is to get inside the world’s top 20, I’m at 24 and have no points to defend in Australia. I think that could be achievable, and I would love to get back into the top 10 this year, however I have to start winning more titles, and having deep runs in the slams, I am focused and ready to do what is necessary. If it means staying out for 4 hours on court fighting to win a match, it has to be done. Each year is a new chapter in your life and it gives you another chance to rewrite some history books. Let’s see what 2013 will bring (massive smile)

Thank you Venus, it has been a pleasure. Good luck for the new season, all the tennis fans are rooting for you.

Venus:- Thanks for the support, I look forward to talking to you soon, and have a Merry Christmas, and a prosperous new year.

Well, there is always a hope. :angel: If she manages to enter top 10 soon, I don't see the reason why wouldn't she go even higher. Who would stop her? Top 10 players like Errani, Wozniacki, Li, Stosur, Kerber etc? I think Ana's only problem was lack of self confidence, and if she finally managed to overcame it, she is already among the best players in the world. Ok, maybe she will not be able to take #1 spot in this season, but I believe she can do it again in the future. Top 5 could be realistic goal during 2013. Once you've been #1, you are always in the game to overtake it. I do see Ana as a competitive player for a GS title, and I hope she will show that on courts again, maybe already at AO in a few weeks. Her comeback was going slowly, but I feel she is in again, finally ready for her new era. :)

I guess you can't completely rule out Radwanska either, but I would be very surprised if someone outside of the current top three would get to number one in 2013.

Forced to choose between yes and no I'd have to go for the latter, but if given more choices I'd have said "probably not".

These are definitely the dominant 3 atm, but I don't think any of them, even Serena, are quite as bulletproof as some would have us believe. In any case it'll take more than one year of them sharing the spoils to convince me that they have a lock on the slams comparable to Federer/Nadal/Djokovic/Murray in the men's game.

There are a bunch of other players who can contend in the slams in 2013 (among others Kvitova, Radwanska, Stosur and Wozniacki), and any one of them who wins a slam title and does reasonably well in other big tournaments could have a shot at the #1.

This is women's tennis, remember? No such thing as a sure thing.

True. But one of the current top three doing worse than expected is always possible. All three of them doing worse is a lot less likely.

Yep. I think it is very unlikely that all three of them have a weak period at the same time. If one of them (letīs say Sharapova :devil:) drops temporarily to No.5, there are still Vika and Serena left for No.1 position.

Beside I don't know why some people pick Maria to fall down quicker than Vika or Serena, Maria has the edge considering than even on clay she can collect a lot of points. Vika and Serena, not so much but we'll see this year if the tables will turn.

Like I said, it's unlikely, but it's nowhere near a certainty that it won't happen. All three had amazing years, so it's entirely possible that all three will do worse next year than this (it's called regression to the mean;)). If that happens just a little, and some other player manages to stick their head out in front of the pack for a while, that player could get to #1.

So much depends on the slams, and any slams won by other players won't be won by any of these three, which means less points for them and more for those other players. And has everybody already forgotten how close Aga came to the #1 this year without even winning a slam?

Some of the Ana fans and their delusions. Wait until she returns to the top ten first. :tape:

Nope, don't think so.
Beside I don't know why some people pick Maria to fall down quicker than Vika or Serena, Maria has the edge considering than even on clay she can collect a lot of points. Vika and Serena, not so much but we'll see this year if the tables will turn.
