Its the case if Jelena cant go much further in tourney ...
Anyway we will have player no.2 from serbia next week for sure!
Do you think she deserve it? :devil:
Well done Ana,
Looks like its a new era for Serbian tennis and end of williams domination... :cool:
I am not sure what williams fan will say about very poor performance from williams at this open... none of williams reached semifinal this AO 08.. and both are actually healthy..

So the only one can take no 2 from Ana is only Jankovic at the moment!
If Jelena Jankovic is going further than Ana then Jankovic will reach higher rank of 2 otherwise its Ana! Interesting...

She doesn´t deserve the number 2

Sveta was a worthy number 2 since she has 1 US Open and Miami under her belt

Ana deserves much more than Sveta... Maybe Sveta is the player who spent less weeks in number 2! hahaha

if so that record will soon be beaten by Ivanovic who has loads of points to defend

as ive said before-there isnt a clear #2, people are gonna say Sharapova is the real #2 after she wins the title but :shrug: Ana will have it if she out performs JJ, which she will

im quickly giving up on womens tennis! we have 3 players in the semi final of the oz open that i wouldn't in my wildest dreams call athletes, ontop of that dani hasn't beaten a top 25 player to get there. my only hope now is that jj wins the oz open. if this is going to be womens tennis from now on, who can hit it harder no matter how many mistakes they make, then its not for me. ana being #2 for me is worse than sveta because at least sveta can run. i feel inctredibly sad right now, tennis may as well nick the 6ft 4 inch girls that play volley ball now as technique and guile are a thing of the past.

lmao, you are so ridiculous. she obviously deserves it if she's EARNED the points you dumbass. also, Svetlana won that slam years ago as well as miami. plus, ana has made the semis of 3 out of the 4 last 4 slams. she more than deserves her ranking, mind you, the points prove it:kiss:

Anyway,good wins for the Serbians. :yeah:

I have to agree and as much as I enjoy watching Ana and think she's talented.
It's in my opinion that she needs a few years before she could be of the top caliber.

The top seeds have failed themselves,I think they know that though and hopefully they will learn from these mistakes.

Out of all left,the girls that should win the Aus Open are Maria and Jelena.

So the only one can take no 2 from Ana is only Jankovic at the moment!
If Jelena Jankovic is going further than Ana then Jankovic will reach higher rank of 2 otherwise its Ana! Interesting...
Firstly, I cant believe that ALL quaterfinal match went to two sets only...
If Ana goes to final and Jelena doesnt, Ana will be confirmed as a new no 2.
If Jelena goes to final but Ana doesnt, Jelena will be confirmed as a new no 2.
If both goes to final, Anna will still be ahead in term of rank and points and final will decide who is truely no 2!!!
I really wanna see All Serbian Final in Grandslam though!
If both lost in semi, Ana will be no 2 and Jelena stays as no 4.

If Maria goes to final and Dani doesnt, Maria will stay as no 5.
If Daniela goest to final and Maria doesnt, Dani will return to no.5 after years away from it!
If both goest to final, Maria will stay in no 5 and Dani will be no 6 and the winner of two in final will battle for no 5 spot!
If both lost in semi, Maria will be no 7 and Dani will be no 8.
Interesting.. So its ranking battle between Ana vs Jelena and Maria vs Daniela. :eek:
And court battle between Ana vs Daniela and Jelena vs Maria.. :lol:

End of the Williams domination? This what had been said in 2005, 2007 and now 2008. How many times must they prove you wrong? Seriously, keep your fingers to yourself before you type something foolish like this. Ooooh one bad tournament from the Williamses. So what? Last year in the Aus Open Jelena reached the fourth round and got killed by Serena, and Ivanovic lost in like...the third round. Even at the 2007 US Open both Williamses and better showings than the Serbians.

I don't get how you could say with so much confidence that it is 'the start of a new era'. Justine is still way ahead of Ana/Jelena and is the clear number one. Last year all the slam champions were ether a WS or Justine, there's no new era here, it's just a bad tournament.

They're champions and they'll find a way to climb back again. I have nothing against Serbians - they're great players but are far from the WS.

Jan 23rd, 2008, 01:26 PM
Its the beginning for serbian tennis I believe. Its great to see Ana finally proved people wrong too that she doesnt deserve her rank. In fact now She proved it at least that she was better than Venus earlier today. As well as Jelena, she proved yesterday that she was better than Serena. OMG, Serbians is 2-0 again williams at AO 08.. I just realized that! X_X'' Amazing..
Good Luck for Ana and Jelena tomorrow..

ana being #2 for me is worse than sveta because at least sveta can run.

Being able to "run" isn't the only prerequisite for world #2 :lol:

And what was Kuznetsova's claim to the #2 spot last year? Compare her record to that of Ana's, and her case is less than compelling.

I think you are useing the wrong term here. The Williams domination is indeed over and will probably not come back again.

Williams domination ended in 2003. They are still amongst the best but it is clear Ana and Jelena are ahead of them now.

As for Ana being number 2. It is amazing! She is one of the few talented players from her generation. She fully deserves it and genuinely is the best player behind Henin if she reaches the final.

No, I don't think she does deserve it yet. The offiical ranking methodology is far to volatile.

In my opinion the real world number 2 at the moment should be Maria Sharapova.

Just my opinion.

The only Serbian tennis player that is going to win a Grand Slam in the next 2-3 years is Novak Djokovic hands down. The Serb's aren't taking over the WTA Tour, and won't come close. Sure they'll make some nice runs in majors, but they are not slam material. Jankovic is one of my favs, but this is probably the best chance she'll have to win a Slam. Both of the Serbs.

MisterMan
Jan 23rd, 2008, 02:38 PM
The fact that the tournament ends in a few days and we could have 3 Serbs in the finals and another one who took Federer to 10-8 in the fifth set...
It may be their time to shine.

Ana's game is very often brilliant.

Wow, that's a bummer, given how well she's played here. But I guess she'll have her chances to pile on the points this Spring, since she lost so many in that stretch last year.
