Since one is being done for nearly every year who do you think was the rightful #1 in 2004 which was one of the craziest years ever for womens tennis:

Kuznetsova- U.S Open Winner, Eastborne Winner, had match point vs eventual winner at French, and lost to eventual winner at Australian.

Sharapova- Wimbledon Winner, Year End Championship winner. French Open quarters, 3rd round losses at both Australian and U.S Opens.

Henin- Australian Open Winner, Indian Wells winner, Olympic Gold winner.

Dementieva- only women to make 2 slam finals.

Davenport- strong results throughout year in slams and winning many regular tournaments, but failed to win a slam.

Mauresmo- same as Davenport.

Serena- runner up at Wimbledon and Year End Championships, winner of Miami.

Capriati- semis of French and US Opens, beating Serena at both, quarters of Wimbledon.

Gosh stop these threads. :help: It's getting ridiculious.

Henin, I guess. Although she had a pretty inconsistent year.

Davenport.

If it wasn´t for that stupid hip, she would have beat Sveta 6-1 6-3 in that US Open SF!

I love these threads, Lindsay's always involved. :inlove: Even though it means that some of you think she didn't deserve to finish #1 while she actually did. :sobbing:

Davenport.
Justine would have been if she hadn't gotten ill. But considering it was a crazy year, Lindsay was by far the most consistent.

It was an insane year all around. There wasnt a slam winner who made it past the 3rd round of more than 2 of the 4 slams.

How can Mauresmo be left off? That is stupid. Mauresmo, Davenport, Henin, and Sharapova are the only 4 I would seriously consider.

Sorry I meant to make Mauresmo a poll option but not Venus. So those of you who feel it is Mauresmo just vote Venus since it really means Mauresmo in this thread.

Taking into account she was a sick for most of the year, Justine easily.

This is an easy one - Maria of course:banana: And to think that she was still 16 when that year started...amazing talent

Well, it beats the "Oh fuck, she made the semis so now she's going to choke/completely self-destruct/have to play Serena/wreck a calf muscle/God only knows what next time." :hysteric:

People really have a short memory...

Nastya was ITF player of the year :
won RG
won Fed Cup
Semis of YEC and Olympics
won Moscow and Doha titles

3/1 head to head against Sharapova (including a delicious 6-1 6-2 embarrassment in Indian Wells)
2/2 against Davenport

Close one. I'm interested to know who won the most tournaments that year?

How the heck is Mauresmo not on the poll!?!? She won 3 tier 1 titles, performed well in all the slams despite not winning one. And she spent some of the year ranked #1. Venus, Kuznetsova, and Capriati on the poll but not Mauresmo, LOL!

Had Mauresmo been on the poll I would have considered voting for her. And had Mauresmo not choked in that Wimbledon semifinal with Serena I think she would have been the clear #1 that year. Maria played amazing in the final but Mauresmo probably still would have beaten her since she owned Maria in the early years. Mauresmo also probably would have won the U.S Open that year if she didnt choke at end of her match with Dementieva. (Yeah I know those are what ifs but Mauresmo could definitely had an even better 2004 than 2006).

Momo, Pova and Christine all won 5 tournaments that year.

Lindsay won 7 :wavey:

He already knew the answer. He just wanted to make someone praise Davenport.

Maria wasn't in great form between Wimbledon and YEC. She kind of underperformed during that time so I don't think she's the real #1 of '04.
