you counted a W/O Henin def Petrova but you also left off fedcup results which i think should be included in W/L as long as its not a dead rubber

Sorta irrelevent, and not meant to be a bash or insult, but lose is spelt with ONE "o". Its Lose, Losing, Loses, and Loser. Otherwise you're saying loose, like a rope is loose. :wavey: :angel:

It doesn't seem that difficult to decide who's the best player this year. Mauresmo is clearly at the top, with a slam, the number 1 ranking, and number 1 in the race. The race for second-best so far became a lot more interesting with Nadia's flawless (WTA tournament) clay season.
