My ten favorite #1s. Really like the first six...respect the last four, but not really a fan. I find the middle three to be the most exciting, and then Evert I find less boring than the rest.

Of the past ten world number 1's (not necessarily my fav no 1's of all time):

1. Serena Williams
2. Venus Williams
3. Kim Clijsters
4. Justine Henin
5. Jennifer Capriati
6. Lindsay Davenport
7. Amelie Mauresmo
8. Maria Sharapova

1. Chris Evert
2. Billie Jean King
3. Evonne Goolagong
4. Serena Williams
5. Venus Williams
6. Martina Navratilova
7. Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario

Too bad Rosie Casals never made number one, or she'd be up there too. Hopefully Jelena Jankovic will make number one before long, so that I can add her.
