View Full Version : #1 for 2007?

Nov 12th, 2006, 09:00 AM
Who will be #1 for the longest duration in 2007?

Nov 12th, 2006, 09:05 AM
it's likely to be Justine as she has points from the whole part of the seaso not just some bits, but if Amélie makes a great first 2-3 months, who knows ...

Nov 12th, 2006, 10:17 AM
i think sharapova cos justine and kim will always get injured or married or something like that and take time off and sharapova is better than mauresmo and the other players are not good enough to be #1

It's a tossup between Justine, Amelie and Maria... :)

Nov 12th, 2006, 10:40 AM
I think it's between Maria, Justine and Amelie. I've voted for Maria

Nov 12th, 2006, 10:45 AM
I think that will be Maria

Nov 12th, 2006, 10:51 AM
Amelie :D

sharapova but will lose it on clay and have it again after!

Nov 12th, 2006, 01:11 PM
I think Justine has the best chances to be number 1 for a long time if she stays healthy.
But of course, my hopes go to Kim.

Well I think it's between Sharapova and Henin-Hardenne. But I think that Sharapova has got the biggest chance to stay for a long term at the number one spot. Sharapova has less points to defend than Henin I think if you look at the whole season. Henin has to defend the finals of the Grand Slams and the YEC, and the RG title, while Sharpova has to defend USOPEn title, wimbly and aussie semi-final and a fourth round at RG. Sharapova has also become a better player and her groundies and serve and her movement improved so I think she can win a lot more titles next year.

But my vote goes to another person eventually and that is Serena Williams.

I think Sharapova will probably be #1 at the end of 2007. Justine will probably play a smaller schedule plus she isn't likely to make all 4 slam finals. I don't think Amelie will have as good a season next year as she did this year. Sharapova will be consistent as always and win at least one slam.

Nov 12th, 2006, 04:50 PM
Serena Williams

Nov 12th, 2006, 04:52 PM
Serena fucking Jameka Williams

Nov 12th, 2006, 04:55 PM
MARIA :bounce:

Dec 11th, 2006, 12:14 AM
Has to be Martina, because if Amelie can be Martina also can...

Dec 11th, 2006, 12:19 AM
Serena fucking Jameka Williams

Sharapova. She's very consistent and dangerous, and she can do a lot of shoring up her ranking during the early half of the season. She didn't really take off in the race until July, so she can assault the top ranking in the first half and just sustain it in the second half.

Justine played spectacularly in her 13 events, but if she falters in just two or three of them before the quarters (which is possible, she usually has a great year followed by a rocky year) her ranking will drop pretty dramatically. Mauresmo doesn't seem to have the non-slam sustainability to keep the top ranking for too long next season. By next season, I'd expect to see the top three change a little bit, and Kuznetsova closing the gap between three and four, if not taking the third spot.

Dec 11th, 2006, 12:39 AM
I would have to say : Justine Henin-Hardenne

she is a capable player to defends her #1 spot :kiss:

Go Justine ;)

Common sense says Justine hands down.

Dec 11th, 2006, 12:54 AM
I think it'll pass back and forth between Justine and Maria.

Justine is quite capable of making a clean sweep of the clay season as in '05 - this year, apart from RG, was actually not that amazing for her on clay by her standards - which should keep her ahead of Maria for a while. (Unless Maria wins the AO.)

Maria is capable of an even better run on U.S. hardcourts and indoors than what she had this year and also should manage another WImbledon final, possibly a title, so I would expect her to take the #1 rank at some point later in the year.

Dec 11th, 2006, 12:55 AM
I think that the women that can challenge for #1 are:
Justine, Maria, Amelie, and a healthy Serena....the other women play too much and don't have good records against the afformentioned 4 women.

Dec 11th, 2006, 03:04 AM
Serena fucking Jameka Williams

longest duration? most likely would be justine or maria since they earn alot of point towards end of the year.
it would be abit hard for amelie cause she has quite alot of points to defend in the early part of the year.

however, who would end #1 is another story. i think all 3 have good chance of ending #1, slightly favouring to Maria since Justine gets injured more often.

I think it will be Justine. she looks like she isn't gonna stop there with her form from this year & will translate it into 2007.

But I really do hope Kim will regain the No.1 spot back, stay there for a long duration in 2007 & finish at No.1. All my hopes are going into Kimmy here :yeah:

Dec 11th, 2006, 07:58 AM
Justine till the grass season and Maria for the second part of the year after her Wimbledon title :drool:

Shimizu Amon

I hope it will be Maria!

Dec 11th, 2006, 11:37 AM
I hope it will be Maria!


Dec 11th, 2006, 11:43 AM
Amélie!!!!!!! What kind of question is this??? ;) :p :)

Dec 11th, 2006, 09:01 PM
[SIZE="6"]What kind of question is this??? ;) :p :)

A rhetorical question. Everyone knows it will be Maria :p

Dec 12th, 2006, 08:12 PM
I think it's Maria because Hardenne have more points to defend.And Sharapova is able to be freeinjured longer than Hardenne.

If Justine wins AO she might be #1 for the whole season. If Maria wins AO she should get to #1, but Justine might get it back after pts for Indian Wells & Miami come off. We'll see - I hope Justine stays as #1 the whole year. :drool: :devil:
