I just hope she plays a decent autumn schedule and stays at number one. Many players have some points to defend but not a lot of points. The good thing is I think she'll be eager to keep her ranking so I think she'll play at least two tournaments before Doha, even if just to defend her points from last year.

Seriously, what kind of order you are talking about.. 5 different winners of big titles this year. And , clearly, Safina and Dementieva jsut ran out of gas after Olympics, which took huge physical and emotional toll on both, but they definitely - the way they played this summer - belong right there. And Maria was quite invincible until her IW injury. We clearly have Big 7 right now.. We'll see what's going to happen in YEC and Australia.. Very intriguing situation.

Serena has an 88% win-loss record this year, she has got to half the Grand Slam Finals, she is a Grand Slam Champion, she holds winning records over every top player bar Safina who she is tied with and Dementieva who she lost to, she's earned the number one ranking and has the most tier one titles. I'd say it's pretty much a no brainer that she all the bragging rights to title of the best player in the world right now.

Big 7 :rolleyes: that's almost as funny as your comment that the match was on Sveta's racquet before the 2007 US Open Final.


The WTA Tour is still the same as it has been all year, we just have another number 1. And Serena is as legitimate number 1 as the other players who have held it this year have been.

And this is just my opinion, but Serena is a more legitimate number one than Sharapova who only earned the number one ranking due to Henin's removal from the rankings, and Jankovic who only has one title to her name and who failed to capitalise on numerous matches where she would have been number one if she had won the match. In Serena we have a number one with experience of winning many titles and three Grand Slams as the world number one player. I think she deserves a little more respect than being referred to as "just another number one"

Based on the last 52 weeks Serena is the best player in the world. But that was also the case when Ivanovic and Jankovic held the top ranking when they did. That's all that matters. I don't think Serena's past career and the fact she was such a dominant no.1 makes her a more appropriate number 1 right now. Sure, it is great for the tour that we have such a great champion back at the top, but her past results don't make her more deserving of the number 1 ranking than someone who is newer to the tour.

Up until a few weeks ago (or even until this week, I'm not even sure), the player with the best 52 week record was Henin. All the other number ones this year got the spot because Henin essentially wiped her name off the rankings.

Winning the US Open, Miami, Charleston, and a Tier II isn't good enough?

Plus making the Wimbledon final? :confused:

That's # 1 quality. She is clearly the best person on tour and her resume for 2008 states it rather OBVIOUSLY. Her pre-2008 resume only emphasizes how much better she is. But Serena, is without a doubt, clearly deserving of the # 1 ranking. Whereas Jankovic got lucky because of the rolling calendar. Ivanovic, to me, was also a legitimate # 1. If you ask most posters (who have a brain), they don't have a problem with Ivanovic. It was with Jankovic.

this will give legitimacy to the tour and Serena has been a no.1 before and promoted womens tennis during 2002.No one will question her ranking like what happened when jj became no.1,she is a proven champion who has the resume to show for it.She seems to enjoy the limelight that goes with being no.1 unlike Ana who didnt seem to embrace her status and jj who kept losing to avoid the ranking,let Serena be no.1 she has earned it and for some it makes sense that the 9 slams champion is at the top:bounce:

^^ I personally think Henin should have stayed on the rankings regardless, but she didn't so her results didn't count. Ivanovic and Jankovic, at the times they were no.1, were the best active players on tour.

Me neither. I do think the way she became number one with a Grand Slam win makes her an appropiate number one right now. I don't think she is more deserving than any of the others, however I simply feel the number one ranking is in safer hands with someone who "knows what she's got and what to do with it", so to speak. And with multiple Grand Slam Finals, and big titles she has shown number one quality this year. Obviously not a dominating number one quality, more of a "leading player on the tour", quality.

But two weeks ago, Ivanovic was the best player in the world. I just don't like people saying that Serena is the one who restored order. Order didn't need to be restored. Had Ivanovic or Jankovic won the USO, they would have been just as legitimate and appropriate no.1's as Serena is, and just as worthy of being known as the best player in the world.

Ana didn't do her best under the no.1 ranking but there have been others who have done the same in the past. Ana was a proven champion before anyway. As for Jelena, there is no rule saying a non-slam champion cannot be number 1. The rankings are not based on no. of slams.

Sep 9th, 2008, 08:25 PM
It's true that Serena's results this year havent been as oustanding as to put her leagues above everyone else, but the number 1 mantle is surely safer in her hands than any other right now. Jankovic and Ivanovic obviously cannot hack the emotional pressure of being number 1, but Serena can and will certaintly relish being the world's best player again. I think the US Open showed how mentally strong the current number 1 is, and i cant see anyone else with the same fortitude to take the number 1 ranking right now. Perhaps Safina, but i think even she would have to play outstandingly week after week to supplant Serena now.

Serena's there to stay for a while yet IMO;)

Agreed. We all understand the 52 rolling week rankings, but the general public won't and need to see a dominant player. Right now it is Serena, with her form in the last two GSs. So call it order, or just call it rising to the call - she is number one and is playing like it.

I think it's fitting that Serena is #1 and that she wasn't #1 before the USO. Because she's now actually earned it with results. It is a great way to get to #1 by winning a tournament and especially winning a slam.

I hate to see #1 changing when it's because a load of points are wiped off one player and it doesn't relate to what a player does in the current tournament.

Jelena will have reconquered the throne by the end of the season as she can still gain a huge amount of ranking points. :cool: Order will be restored thereupon. :devil:

Jelena has only won one title in her last 20 attempts or something around that. Even if she won Beijing next week, she would not be number one. I would not count on it.

Yep. And it's a bit telling that Jelena once again couldn't make the most of another opportunity to take the #1 spot with a win. Perhaps in the future JJ will be ready. But right now Serena seems much more comfortable claiming the top spot.

Serena is the real deal no1 and this year has solidified that ranking by winning a slam,no one is questioning this ranking because everyone who has followed tennis knows that she is the Queen of women s tennis..even the other players like Ana,Safina and Vesnina recognize that she is a great champion.
