They have won some big titles this year, but where it counts, the grand slams, they haven't made it past the semis.
I feel currently they're the third best team behind Srebotnik/Sugiyama who beat them at the French and Wimbledon and Black and Huber who could win Grand slam title #2 of the year.
Your thoughts?

Lisa is a little bit old, but she might take Martina as her role model, playing til 50. But yeah, I think they still deserve to be no.1 in respect of their results and achievement.

When are people going to stop asking this silly question regarding who deserves what ranking? Given the empirical nature of the ranking system (which has been discussed ad nauseum) the word deserve is totally irrevalent. Ranking is all about number of points... the more points you have, the higher your ranking.

What could be simpler?
