Serena doesn't have a lot of points to defend. So you think she will be #1 for a long time?

It's still very close, especially with JJ (actually I think she has more points to defend than Jelena before YEC) so it'll depend how well (and how many tournies) Serena'll plays during the fall.

Yeah, it is a bit close to JJ.

But she will be Year-End IMO :)

I don't think Serena will end up playing Tokyo, right?

That's a big tournament that Ivanovic, Jankovic, Safina, etc. will probably play.

Define "long time"

Long time like Graff, Hingis, Seles and other women I must forgot ? Nope, they haven't the mental for. And SW only play when it's convenient.

*crosses fingers* Hopefully :scared:

JJ doesn't have many points to defend for the rest of the year besides her Beijing final and her Stuttgart SF, so she can make up a lot there. But Serena also only has the Moscow final so she can also make up a lot. So it's hard to say.

Forever. :hearts:

If Serena keeps up a healthy schedule this fall, which i believe she will and can see her totally dominating the tour. So, YES!

If Serena wants to, could be long time.

Serena and Jelena could shift spots a few times before the YEC, as they both have few points to defend, but Serena should secure the spot after AO. It will take a long while and some solid results for Ivanovic to return to the top spot, consider she has YEC SF points and AO F points.

As of Sep 08, '08

1 WILLIAMS,S - 4091
2 JANKOVIC - 3965
3 IVANOVIC - 3532
5 SAFINA - 3357
6 SHARAPOVA - 3041
8 WILLIAMS,V - 2386
9 ZVONAREVA - 2087
10 RADWANSKA - 2076

only about 100 pts separating Serena and Jelena so I think race for number 1 this year is still on.

Serena will be #1 long time...you ain't even gotta worry about a thing about Serena.:angel:
