By virtue of Dinara Safina's (unfortunate :sad: ) retirement against Jelena Jankovic in their first round robin match, Serena secures the Year-End #1 ranking (by at least 5 points, the rest is just bonus).



Congrats! :bigclap: (right? :unsure: )

Dinara is defending nothing.

yec points came off already the week before hence why dinara got back to #1...so it was who did better...serena won 1 match and dinara none...so adv. serena

Actually, I'm pretty sure even if she losses her last two matches, as long as she plays them she gets 70 points each. So she is getting 70 points today, putting her 5 ahead of Safina.

We thought this last year and then the WTA went out and awarded Radwanska a full worth of RR points for her lone win (and match) and also gave Serena a full amount for her one win in RR play.

Hopefully TBE can confirm if Serena is #1 or not yet. Of course, if she beats Venus, she is #1.

Dinara is defending nothing.

She won 1 match last year.

It's hard to praise Serena when she really didn't have a great season either. Two titles (granted they are grand slams) is nothing to scream and shout about.

She benefitted the most from one of the worst seasons on record.

But I stand firm in saying she did not earn it... the other players handed it to her on a silver platter.

Too bad Safina retired. Would have been great to see a good challenge.

Oohhhhh.... how not appropriate. Serena played the clay court season. Don't debate who's better. I think the best thing is to look forward to a REAL season in 2010. 2009 was a COMPLETE joke.

The gazillion other WTA players beg to differ! Heck they'll be over the moon to have just 1 GS title in a season. End of!

Serena could have gotten the #1 back during the clay season but she failed to do so because she wasn't good enough. And besides being the #1 at the end of the year is totally different than being #1 during the clay season. :weirdo:

Oh I'm not bashing Serena... may the best player win YEC! :) :) However... there's no doubt that she has more phenomenal seasons in the past.

That said... I guess if you have only 2 titles... both GS's, and it is only a mediocre season... then power to you Serena! Hope for a better one next year! :)

Oct 28th, 2009, 11:16 PM
The season was really a mess, nobody really showed leadership, Serena did at times, and Safina, well she never had a real chance to show it (losses in Finals at slams).

And I do agree, don't compare N1 periods, that's too relative to compare and you guys will never agree anyway, so spare the discussions for a more logical time.

Not the most dominant/consistent year from Serena but 2 GS titles is still better that the the rest of the tour.

Nice quote. I think rather than worrying about number 1, people should celebrate those that had a positive season. There are a few players who fought hard to the bitter end of October.
