This week is Caroline's 27th week atop the WTA ranking, thereby surpassing Dinara's 26.
According to the WTA Caroline has secured the #1 spot at least until May 16th (31 weeks).
But considering she hasn't that many points to defend until August 22nd when her 900 Montreal points is dropped, I can't see anyone taking the top spot earlier than that (August 15th = 44th week).

I know the future is hard to tell, but how high do you expect her to climb on the list of #1s during her career?

1 Steffi Graf 377 weeks
2 Martina Navratilova 332 weeks
3 Chris Evert 260 weeks
4 Martina Hingis 209 weeks
5 Monica Seles 178 weeks
6 Serena Williams 123 weeks
7 Justine Henin 117 weeks
8 Lindsay Davenport 98 weeks
9 Amélie Mauresmo 39 weeks
10 Caroline Wozniacki 27 weeks

I voted 124-178 weeks.

Obviously I think she will pass Amélie in July. Then there's a big gap to Lindsay, but once there Serena's not that far away :devil:
(then again, Serena could still add to her total)

I reckon topping the ranks more than 3 years (156 weeks) is very, very difficult. I suppose many would have said Hingis had a fair chance of catching Steffi, yet she was so far from it - over 3 years short (168 weeks). You never know what's going to happen.

Happy guessing ;)

This is difficult to be realistic about. It would be more down to earth, to have 1 or 2 years as a starter. :)

It's impossible to say with any degree of certainty. As things stand right now with Clijsters and the WSs probably not playing beyond 2012 I could well see Caro be #1 for something like 5 years. The only other current player with results consistently at Caro's level is Zvonareva but she turns 27 this year and I don't see her getting much stronger than she is now while Caro's still rising.
The only player in Caros age group even approaching her level is Azarenka. She's had very good results lately but I'm still not convinced she has the mental and physical stability to maintain this level.
And you never know when a new superstar will burst onto the scene from the junior ranks, but with the physical demands of the game these days we're not likely to see a new Graf or Hingis. The days of players below the age of 18 competing at top 5 level is over, I think.
The most likely thing to trip up Caro's career is injury. Any player can get a serious injury at any time. And she IS playing a rather heavy schedule with a game that involves long matches with lots of running. Caro has an excellent physique and has avoided serious injuries so far but it may catch up with her in a few years unless she cuts her schedule some in the future.
And then of course there's the question of motivation. If Caro wins everything there is to win in the next few years - she well could - she may start to lose interest and not have a very long career or only play the big events like Serena and be overtaken by a new 'Wozniacki'. The Olympics will be an important factor in that regard. If Caro doesn't win in London next year I think she'll maintain her motivation at least until Rio 2016.
She has also mentioned a desire to have children. She may meet a wonderful man and want to start a family. Will it happen at 24? 27? 30? There's no telling.

But, if all things turn out well for Caro: her game continues to develop, no serious injuries, no problems with motivation etc. I see Caro maintaining her #1 ranking almost unbroken for the next 5 years!

True, let's hope the injury bug doesn't catch Caroline. But all athletes can get injured.

We must also remember that falling into a slump is only human. And keeping the top spot while in a slump is not realistic. So while she's likely a contender for the #1 spot for several years, she may have to swap it with Zvonareva or Azarenka or whoever from time to time. Only 7 players have held the #1 rank more than 52 weeks in a row, and only 3 players have held it more than 104 weeks in a row (Graf, Nav, Evert). Steffi has the record with 186 weeks in a row (Aug ´87 - Mar ´91).

Longest streaks, 52+ weeks:

1 Steffi Graf 186 (also 94 & 87)
2 Martina Navratilova 156 (also 90)
3 Chris Evert 113 (also 76)
4 Monica Seles 91 (also 64)
5 Martina Hingis 80 (also 73)
6 Justine Henin 61
7 Serena Williams 57

Getting on that short list would be cool :cool:

Reaching Seles and Hingis would be an incredible achievement, but I'm not sure if it's possible. The top 3 I definitely think is out of reach, though.

Buuut, she has surprised us before, so who knows.

Considering Caroline wants a family at some point I would estimate no.5 in the list as a viable goal. Further there must come a point in a tennis career when you start to think Déjà vu every day? another 160 weeks over 5 years, then retire to do other things... :shrug: Only time will tell.

Vera can't be No. 1 after Wimbledon as she defend F points, but as she lost early in RG it won't matter anyway.

But still Kim can still be No. 1 after Wimby, but Caro "only" needs to win 2 rounds...

True the gap between Lindsay and Amelie is big. 59 weeks - over a year. Obviously we don't know who's #1 14 months from now, but Caro should be safe for a couple of months. Here's the top 5 with 2010 Wimbledon points off:

1 Caro 9635
2 Kim 7715
3 Vera 6535
4 Li 5755
5 Vika 5565

Kim has withdrawn from Wimbledon and gets 0 points. So no matter what happens Caro will be at least 1100 points ahead post Wimbledon. Actually, chances are she'll have a 2000+ lead after Wimby.

I see Caro at #1 at least until the USO. And I think she will be YE #1 again.

The winner of Wimbledon (especially if Li, Vika or Maria) could threaten Caro after the USO as they have less points to defend than Caro.

True. If one of those three gets very hot and wins both Wimbledon and the US Open then Caroline's ranking could be in jeopardy. I don't think it is very likely to happen but if Na Li makes the final and/or wins the last two majors I wouldn't begrudge her taking the number one ranking as that would be a rather singular achievement.

Still, if Caroline goes very deep at Wimbledon (semis, final or win) she would give herself a very hefty lead.

The WTA has confirmed that Caro is safe at #1 at least until August:

WORLD NO.1: Caroline Wozniacki enters 2011Wimbledon as theWTA’s No.1 ranked player for the 3rd straight time at a
major and is guaranteed to be No.1 through week of August 1, which will extend her reign at the top spot to at least 42
weeks, which will see her pass Amelie Mauresmo and become the 9th longest-serving No.1. Wozniacki has held the top spot
since first achieving it on October 11, 2010, with the exception of week of February 14, when Kim Clijsters returned to No.1
for the first time in almost 5 years.

A deep run at Wimbledon will do her good, especially considering her last 3 mandatory events has been rather diappointing (Miami, Madrid, Roland Garros).

"Wozniacki ties Mauresmo for weeks at No.1

Caroline Wozniacki is spending her 39th overall week at No.1.
Her first 18 weeks came between October 11, 2010 and February
13, 2011, and after Kim Clijsters spent one week there, she is now
in her second stint as No.1 (this is her 21st straight week there)."

Graf, Navratilova, Evert, Hingis, Seles, Serena, Henin, Davenport... and Wozniacki.

Just 8 women have been #1 longer than Caroline. Amazing!

But she's facing a lot of points to defend in the coming months, and I fear her confidence was hurt at RG/Wimby. But she likes the US hard courts so I'm hoping great results lay ahead of her. I want her to shine at the USO :angel:

And she's still leading the race to Istanbul:

1 Caro 5806
2 Kvitova 5037
3 Li Na 4947
4 Sharapova 4840
5 Azarenka 4502

I'm sure one of those 5 will end 2011 as #1. I hope it'll be Caroline :cool:

This week is Caroline's 27th week atop the WTA ranking, thereby surpassing Dinara's 26.
According to the WTA Caroline has secured the #1 spot at least until May 16th (31 weeks).
But considering she hasn't that many points to defend until August 22nd when her 900 Montreal points is dropped, I can't see anyone taking the top spot earlier than that (August 15th = 44th week).

As predicted in April, when I opened this thread Caro is still #1 on August 15th - 44 weeks. :worship:

She still has a big lead, but now the points are starting to come off from her fabulous end to 2010.
Rogers Cup: 900, New Haven: 470, USO: 900, Tokyo: 900, Beijing: 1000 & YEC: 890.
Total: 5060 points to defend in the rest of the season. :eek:

I can't wait to see how she returns after disappointing results at RG/Wimby and her injury in Båstad.
Hopefully she's fit for fight and ready to kick some Hard Court a$$!

GO Caro! :cheer:

Terrible start to the HC season for Caro. But since her biggest rivals lost too, she is still safe at #1.
According to the WTA she will enter the USO as #1:

Serena dropped out of the top 20 on the 6th of June 2011 (fell from #17 to 25).

Btw: Caro's 117 weeks in the top 10, and 157 weeks in the top 20 have been consecutive (as opposed to her #1, top 3 and top 5 weeks, which have all been interrupted). She has the longest current stay in the top 10 of all players.

I have to say that unless she has a fantastic result at the US Open (either making the final or winning) that is disappointing news. At this point clinging to the number one ranking while performing well below her potential is only going to add more pressure and mess with her head.

Of course I am a fan of Caroline and I want her to keep the number one ranking but she needs to get out of this mini slump that she is in. I do not think it will be good for her to keep the ranking while having disappointing results.

I don't know, just like the split from Piotr, losing the ranking could go both ways. We know she takes a lot of pride and comfort in the fact that she's ranked #1.... losing it would free her from some of the pressure but it could also mean a blow for her confidence... and confidence is what she needs the most now.

If she continues this current level, she has no chance at YE #1.
If she goes back to playing her regular style, she has a chance for it.

I agree with people who say she regressed after IW. She was not as good Miami-Wimbledon as before.
But the last 2 weeks she is not top 50.

These last 2 weeks make me think she doesnt want #1 anymore.
But playing like this at the USO could embarrass her. I think she has to try her best and not pretend her forehand is a weapon.

Why are you so negative all of a sudden? I don't get it... you keep on saying how it looks like she has lost interest... would she have dropped Piotr if she had lost interest? This change requires an insane amount of work from her... the easiest and safest thing would have been to stick to Piotr... but she didn't.

Cut her some slack, there won't be immediate success...expecting that will just set you up for disappointment.

This should be her time of year. The hardcourts, where she has her best success.
If she cant win a set now, I think there is something wrong, very wrong.
Her last 2 USO's are final, semifinal.
If she loses round 1 as #1 seed, I think the media will be extremely negative to her.

So I dont understand what she's doing right before her best major

Because she can use the rest of the year and the tournaments to practice while still maintaining a respectable ranking even if worse comes to worse. That way, she should be tried and proven with the new coach already going into 2012.

If she would have postponed that switch until the winter she would go into 2012 without any match practice since the switch, not a good idea.

Plus, given the fact that she has been on a minor downward spiral since Miami, it's not very likely that she would have won the USO...it's not like she's been giving a sure slam title away.

I think the time for the switch is now, that way she can go fresh and focused into 2012 and start over there. The fact that most of her followers are yet unable to capitalize on her losses is fortunate because it softens the blow even more.

goldenlox
Aug 19th, 2011, 04:27 PM
I understand that. I thought maybe she could tinker with her game while still be able to beat players like McHale.
I hope she and her coach understand what her skill set is. She is an extremely gifted defensive player. And it took her years of hard work to get there.

Well, if we assume it is Mortensen (the evidence is piling up) then we don't have to worry whether or not he knows her or understands her game.

If we can figure out what her strengths and weaknesses are, chances are the new coach will be able to tell as well ;)

I'll be watching like everyone else.
I just think a top level player, healthy, going into her best major, should be trying her best to win now. She might not be healthy 12 months from now.
After the USO start experimenting.

But its her decision, and I hope things turn out well.

After US Open there's some MM's, but i don't think the TOP players have Entered them, so Caro will likely stay No. 1 atleast untill after PPO (Japan Open)

If she manages to keep #1 in Tokyo there's a big risk she could lose the #1 rank in Beijing (defending 1000 points) - the very place she first claimed the #1 spot!!!

I don't understand the timing. This close to a major? Why not after the USO?

I hope she gets her confidence back. At least before the YEC, otherwise it's gonna be a loooong of-season!

It probably has, the articles say that she made the decision after Wimbledon and that Piotr is still there because the coach can't travel with her yet. To me that sounds like she's already using the new coach, he's just not present at tournaments yet.

But nobody really knows, it's all guessing games right now. The fact that she makes so much errors suggests that she's trying something new though and the switch is already in progress. Like Piotr said "She dosen't know what to do on court", she would know if she would stick to her usual plan.

But her recent results have her dropping to #2 in 2011 points. This major becomes big in the race, if one of the top group has a huge USO, they might have a 1000 point lead leaving NY

True. Vera isn't a 'problem'. The threat is Li, Kvitova and especially Sharapova. Maybe Vika too.

USO and Beijing are gonna be crucial, as both must count among best 16. Could be interesting if all 4 or 5 women has a shot at #1 entering the YEC!

Even McHale gets a few free points off her serve. Caro's serve gives her nothing. She has to fight hard to hold serve, and was broken 4-4 in the 1st, & 5-5 in the 2nd.
I've seen a lot of players like Kournikova & Dementieva. You HAVE to hold serve at key points of the set, or nothing else you do well matters enough to offset the breaks

Maria has already surpassed her in the race and she has virtually nothing to defend after the US Open. If Maria plays well at the US Open and during the Asian swing she has a great chance to end the year as number one. Who would have imagined that back in January?

If Caroline wants to retain her number one ranking she needs to start playing great tennis now and continue to do so until the end of the year. Can she do that? Maybe. But it seems unlikely when you consider how poorly she performed in her last two tournaments. Even if she wins the US Open it might not be enough because Maria can potentially pick up a ton of points with a deep run there.

Kvitova, Li and Azarenka are also within striking distance and if any or all of them have a good run from now till the end of the season they have a good chance at surpassing Caroline.

After her subpar performance at Roland Garros and Wimbledon great results in Toronto and Cincinnati were an absolute must for Caroline but unfortunately she laid two massive eggs. As things stand now it seems very unlikely that Caroline will end 2011 as number one.

Well, as far as events played in 2011 (the race) Maria is now number one. That is despite the fact that she played six fewer tournaments than Caroline has this season. So, assuming that Maria plays a relatively full schedule the rest of the season (US Open, Tokyo, Beijing, YEC) and does well in those tournaments she has a great chance of ending the year as number one. I should point out that Caroline is also still in a great position to end the year at number one but she needs to have better overall results for the rest of the season than several other players (Sharapova, Kvitova, Li and Azarenka). Yes, it is possible for her to achieve that but she needs to get her game together now and start producing, otherwise, barring a rafft of injuries to her rivals, she will not accumulate the needed points to retain her ranking.

Playing after Wimbledon was crazy. Even if she had committed to it, she should have pulled out, & started her vacation after the Cibulkova loss.

True, Caroline is 1030 points ahead of Maria in the race to YEC as of Sep 12th.

Other than the 2 mandatory events remaining (Beijing/Istanbul) both Caroline and Maria are on the entry list for Tokyo. Neither are expected to enter other events this season.

Tokyo is not mandatory, but it is an opportunity for Maria to gain on Caroline. Maria has only played 12 events so far this year, so any Tokyo result would count in her best 16. Caroline would at least have to make the Tokyo SF to gain points for her ranking.

Thus, here are two potential best 14 scenarios (of many) post Tokyo:

Maria and Caroline both lose their first match:

1. Caroline 6865
2. Maria 6146

Maria and Caroline both reach and lose SF:

1. Caroline 6940
2. Maria 6540

So if you only look at the current WTA race for Istanbul as presented at their homepage Caroline has a solid 1030 point lead. But if you look closer at the numbers the race for year end #1 is much closer!

I don't think you can break it up into some sort of virtual ranking after the first wek of a slam. The players will always keep their official ranking positions during the 2 weeks of slams (if I'm not mistaken) until the next ranking is published. Which means that Serena should have one less top 20 week, Sharapova one less top 3 week, and so on.

Yes, I know. But I'm questioning whether there was any official September 5 ranking? WTA never publishes rankings in the middle of a slam. If a player goes into a slam as a WTA #1, then she's guaranteed to keep her #1 ranking for two weeks until the next raking is published. Even if she has virtually lost her #1 ranking in the first week. And if a player is certain to become a new world no. 1 already after her first match at a slam, then she still won't get the #1 ranking until the next ranking is published! She will be awarded after the match, like Carolie was after her Beijing QF 20140, but the official date will be the date when the ranking is published after the tournament is over.

I may be wrong, of course, but I'm actually quite sure that the weeks counts are always based on published rankings.

Sharapova can have as many as 8145 points after Beijing.

Caro has 8755 safe points after Tokyo and 7755 after Beijing by my calculations.

9335 (current point total) - 900 (Tokyo points from last year) = 8435 + 320 (17th best result) = 8755

8755 - 1000 (Beijing points from last year) = 7755

8145 (Sharapova's max point total after Beijing) - 7755 (Caro's safe total after Beijing) = 370

So Caro would have to make the semis of Beijing or the semis of Tokyo and quarters in Tokyo to stay at #1 if Sharapova wins Tokyo and Beijing.

Your last sentense doesn't make sense, but I suppose you meant the semis of Tokyo and quarters of Beijing?

9335 - 900 + 395 - 1000 + 250 = 8080

That would be enough, so Caro need a SF is Beijing or a SF in Tokyo + QF in Beijing to be safe after Beijing if Maria wins both.

But Maria would probably be YE #1 then, because she has no points to defend at YEC, Caro has 890.

That would be enough, so Caro need a SF is Beijing or a SF in Tokyo + QF in Beijing to be safe after Beijing if Maria wins both.

But Maria would probably be YE #1 then, because she has no points to defend at YEC, Caro has 890.
I think I was thinking of both Tokyo and Beijing having both a maximum of 1000 ranking points, hence the extra 100 points.

Yah, I meant semis of Tokyo and quarters in Beijing.

Do you know the point breakdown for wins/losses at the YEC? I can't find it at the Wta's site.

Do you know the point breakdown for wins/losses at the YEC? I can't find it at the Wta's site.
During the round robin stage, each player gets 70 points for losing a match and 230 for winning.

The losing semifinalists get no further points. The losing finalist gets an extra 360, and the champion gets an extra 810.

In this way, the champion scores 1500 points (230+230+230+810), provided that she won all three of her RR matches on the way.

Not sure if Serena's weeks in top 20 is right. When was her last week in the top 20? Can't find it anywhere.

Karolina should end 2011 #1 but will probably drop it around IW.

Many points to defend from AO until that time, and her main competitors do not. Also Serena will most likely be up and firing by then.

Wozniacka should brace her self for a rocky road to come...hope dear Karolina can pull through!

2011 year end #1 is still a close race between Caro and Sharapova. Caro is in the lead, but it's not in the bag yet.
As you mention Caro has a lot of points to defend in AO, Dubai & Indian Wells. However if Maria should get to #1, then she has a lot of points to defend in Miami, Rome, FO and Wimbledon... And you're right Serena is always gonna be a contender if healthy. So #1 could go back on forth a few times in 2012, then again that's what we said prior to the 2011 season between Caro, Kim and Vera. Kim got 1 week, Vera 0.

I'm not sure Serena will play enough to be a contender even if she's healthy. She won't play Tokyo, she rarely plays Beijing and she won't qualify for YEC. Odds are she'll only play a handful of tournaments outside the slams and as USO showed it's no certainty the 'old' girl (she turns 30 Monday) will win those even when in good shape.

Sharapova's a bigger threat but even with her many good results this year I still don't quite trust her stability (the USO loss against Pennetta being one example). If Caro regains (or already has regained) her usual stability I think she'll stay #1 though her current 3000 points lead will likely become a great deal smaller. But a great advantage to Caro is I expect her to win HC matches between the two (which means all matches the next ½ year).

I'm a little surprised that Serena is not playing a heavier schedule. Perhaps the foot/toe injury she had in Cincinnati is the reason but I thought that she would play Tokyo and Beijing for certain and that she might even play Moscow. I figured that she would want to accumulate as many points as possible in order to get her ranking up as high as she can for the Australian Open. With great results in Tokyo and Beijing she could even have qualified for the YEC which would have been an opportunity for her to pick up even more points.

I guess that she has proven in the past that she can win slams as a low seed/with fairly little match play but with the long lay off I thought that she may have missed playing and would have taken advantage of every chance to get more matches in.

Serena is supposedly playing Beijing and Linz. She would need to win both to be safe for YEC's if that's what she wants right?

Serena is 1100 points behind #8 on the Race list, Bartoli. Winning Beijing and Linz would gain SW 1280 points but that's only enough if MB wins nothing on her Asian swing. I'm not sure what Serena plans for the rest of 2011 but not playing Tokyo signals she has pretty much given up on YEC (same for Kim).

50th week at #1 for the Woz and 2 years in the top 5 . :worship:

Sharapova reaches 4 years in the top 5.

Ivanovic drops out of top 20.

Depending on Franny*, Clijsters could move back up to #8 without playing, on next monday's ranking.

Kvitova could very likely have her top 5 or even top 3 debut next week, if she performs (depends on other results of course).

Stosur could, in a best case scenario, reach #3. That would require the title though and other results going her way.

You sound as if you were trying to convince us about it :-). Too much time spent with trolls in GM! I think Caro will make it, the things got even easier for her now. I don't see anyone being able to take over her spot. Even if Maria was healthy she is not in such a fantastic form as some of her die-hard fans suggest and the likes of Kvitty, Vika, Vera are perfectly beatable,too. I think Caro is saving the energy for the YEC now. She has not won a slam and this is the last big event of a season. So fingers crossed she finished the year in style. If she does maybe we could do a new "celebration threat", LOL.

Once the YEC is over, the next 2 months - get some rest, then point for the AO.
After the AO she has a few months. She can play the tournaments she wants and work on her game before red clay season.

How Can Wozniacki Clinch Year-End No.1?

http://www.wtatennis.com/news/20111025/how-can-wozniacki-clinch-year-end-no1_2256076_2492987

"Here is everyone's points total at the start of the tournament:
7115 - Wozniacki
6370 - Sharapova
5870 - Kvitova
5630 - Azarenka

Can Wozniacki eliminate these threats in the round robin stage? Yes..."







Apparently another 280 points were/will be deducted before/after the event. Guess it's Copenhagen that will now be her 17th best result.

It's not that complicated actually. This week she has 7,395 points (Doha 2010 is already off).
But Istanbul is mandatory, so even if she doesn't play, it must be included in her best 16, replacing Copenhagen 280 points. So next week she will have 7,395 - 280 + Istanbul.

http://www.wtatennis.com/news/20111025/how-can-wozniacki-clinch-year-end-no1_2256076_2492987



Good to see WTA agrees with the calculation I already made:

Caro, Maria & Petra's projected ranking after Istanbul:


Name 0-3RR 1-2RR 2-1RR 3-0RR RU1RR RU2RR RU3RR W1RR W2RR W3RR

Caro Wozniacki 7,325 7,485 7,645 7,805 7,845 8,005 8,165 8,295 8,455 8,615
Maria Sharapova 6,580 6,740 6,900 7,060 7,100 7,260 7,420 7,550 7,710 7,870
Petra Kvitova 6,080 6,240 6,400 6,560 6,600 6,760 6,920 7,050 7,210 7,370




In my table I assume all play 3RR matches. Each lost RR match = 70 points, but if you don't play you get 0 points.

C. W. Fields

With Maria losing her first match Caro 'just' needs to go 3-0 in RR to be sure of being YE #1 (even if Maria wins the tournament).

Winning today means Petra & Vika cant be YE #1.
Just Maria, and for Caro, this match with Vera is big because she could use a big week here, because you keep these points for 50 weeks. The whole 2012 season until next YEC
Its also big for Vera, if she goes 0-2, she's probably out

Updated after Istanbul day 1:


Name 0-3RR 1-2RR 2-1RR 3-0RR RU1RR RU2RR RU3RR W1RR W2RR W3RR

Caro Wozniacki - 7,485 7,645 7,805 7,845 8,005 8,165 8,295 8,455 8,615
Maria Sharapova 6,580 6,740 6,900 7,060 7,100 7,260 - 7,550 7,710 -
Petra Kvitova - 6,240 6,400 6,560 6,600 6,760 6,920 7,050 7,210 7,370




This table does not take injuries into account. Each lost RR match = 70 points, but if you don't play you get 0 points.

Maria needs to be champion to be #1. Petra has no chance unless Caro withdraws.
Caroline is safe with 3 RR wins or as RU (with 1RR win or more).

Oct 27th, 2011, 12:59 PM
The only thing that gives her a bit of breathing room is the fact that she has no points to defend at Sydney, after that defending the ranking will be difficult until RG.

The good news is that there are lots of points to be picked up starting the early summer, the only thing big things she has to defend are the USO SF & the New Haven win. So if her game makes progress during the first half of the year, she can get on a roll and pick up lots of points in the second half.

QuietPlease

I'm glad Caro finished 2011 as #1. She was brilliant in the first half.
But in the new season the main priority shouldn't be the ranking, it's likely to drop anyway.
What she need is to get her game back and re-build her confidence. She has to enjoy playing tennis again. Then she can start winning big tournaments and look at the rankings again.

If you quote my post and then remove the quotes and this text to just leave the code block with the table - you can edit it for next time knowing it should all line up.

Not since 1994 one has been No. 1 for a full year, Caro was sooo near!

Caroline Closes Season On Top

Ranking Watch: Caroline Closes Season On Top

NOVEMBER 08, 2011

Caroline Wozniacki's year did not include that long sought-after first Grand Slam title, but there were plenty of highlights, including being No.1 in the world on the season-ending rankings for the second straight year. The last player to achieve that feat was Justine Henin in 2007.

Wozniacki just missed another accomplishment, as she was one week short of maintaining the No.1 ranking the entire year (Kim Clijsters overtook her just the week of February 14). Here is a list of all who have been No.1 from a year's start to finish:

Player Year
Chris Evert 1977
Chris Evert 1981
Martina Navratilova 1983
Martina Navratilova 1984
Martina Navratilova 1986
Steffi Graf 1988
Steffi Graf 1989
Steffi Graf 1990
Monica Seles 1992
Steffi Graf 1994

Wozniacki will be hard-pressed to hold onto No.1 in 2012, though, as No.2 Petra Kvitova, whose six titles this year tied the Dane for most on the WTA, is in striking distance of the top spot. If she were to surpass Wozniacki, she would be the second Czech No.1 ever - Martina Navratilova having been the first. Regardless, Wozniacki is up to ninth place all-time in weeks spent at No.1.

Also of note, No.3 Victoria Azarenka finished with her best-ever season-ending ranking. No.4 Maria Sharapova had her best finish since 2006. Interestingly enough, five different countries were represented in the season-ending Top 5. That has only previously occurred three times - in 1991, 1992 and 1996. No.8 Agnieszka Radwanska and No.9 Marion Bartoli also had their career-best season ending rankings.

Caro's lead atm is 395 points if we remove Kvitova's 2011 Brisbane points. A Sydney win would give Kvitova 470 points and the #1 ranking unless Caro reaches at least QF (worth 120 points).

Sorry for the confusion, but I'm really doubtful about this one. It's because I also checked TBE's rankings. He has Kvitova at 7190 points without Brisbane. According to WTA it's 7090 points without Brisbane (7370-280). Any explanatinon?

They are at 7485 and 7370 respectively. Petra will have 280 coming off. Which is really only 180, because she has a 100 pointer that will now be her 16th best instead. So in actuality, when the tourny starts, it's 7485 for Woz and 7190 for Petra.

Yeah, of course. But that means Kvitova can definetely take the #1 spot if she wins Sydney (470 points) AND Caro doesn't reach at least the SF (200 points)!

backhandsmash
Jan 5th, 2012, 04:53 PM
I mistook it for an International and not a Premier. I Should have known, of course, since Woz could not have played Copenhagen then. So yes, Kvitova grabs pole position, in case she she wins the tournament. Even if Woz is the losing finalist.

angliru
Jan 5th, 2012, 05:59 PM
Yes, you're right again. Because Caro's 16th result is as good as it is (320 points) she can't increase her ranking points - even as a RU!

Why is WTA so complicated? I think I'll just stick with junior tennis ;)

She would have to win it. :shrug:

backhandsmash
Jan 12th, 2012, 03:03 PM
Win it to be 100% sure. A final could do it, if it's not against Kvitova. A SF could be enough, if Kvitova is stopped no later than the QF and so on...

But you have to take Vika and Maria into account also. A F loss for either will be enough, even if Woz defends all her points.

Woz, Petra, Vika and Maria all making the SF would be awesome, wouldn't it.

Jimmie48
Jan 12th, 2012, 03:10 PM
I see, thanks. So when looking at it realistically, the ranking is pretty much sure to be gone. I could see Kvitova make an early exit to help things but not Vika & Sharapova as well.

And honestly, the way things are going a SF for Caro looks like a steep order right now.

Well, Vika will probably draw Serena in the 4th round and Sharapova is coming out of an injury, so we can always hope. :lol:

Caro has so much to defend thru IW, even thru Brussels, that its almost impossible for her to not lose the #1 spot for a while.

But if she plays well and stays healthy, she will get back in the mix this fall.

Its almost impossible to stay #1 51 of 52 weeks every year.

Only 7 players were #1 for 100 weeks in their entire careers!
Navratilova, Evert, Seles, Graf, Henin, Hingis, SWilliams.
Thats the whole list.
Caroline is at 67 weeks now, but I expect her to lose the #1 spot for a while.
But if she can stay close she can get plenty of opportunities after IW

Jorn
Jan 15th, 2012, 09:58 PM
''MØJ'' means ''Much'' in western danish dialect... ;)


And it much possible one of 5 others take over the No. 1 after IW and possible after AUS Open... Its a injury scare at last tourny and we know she has not been at her best in last times (months) she have played against the other Top players...

"By virtue of her performance here, Serena is assured of returning to the Top 10 on the new rankings for the first time since May. And the only player she trails amongst active players for most weeks spent in the Top 10 is none other than Venus. Here is a list of the 10 active players atop that list:"

Jelena Jankovic 226
Vera Zvonareva 166

Notes: Wozniacki is the only player on this list who once she broke into the Top 10, has never fallen out ... World No.1 Victoria Azarenka is spending her 137th career week in the Top 10.

Seems to fit pretty well with the list in this thread. Don't know what's going on with Vera's tally though. Maybe I messed it up somewhere. Or the original (that I shamelessly based this of) or the original, original thread got a bit too generous. Hmmmmm...

Victoria Azarenka spends her 10th week at No.1 this week.
Though her win streak was snapped at 26 in Miami with a quarterfinal
loss to Marion Bartoli, Azarenka is still a clear cut No.1, with
over 1000 ranking points between her and No.2 Maria Sharapova.

This is gonna be a bit of work to update, but as she'll be #3 next monday (May 7, 2012), I have no choice. :lol:
Notice that KleineBiere has updated his thread in the stats forum. Might save you from a lot of work ;)

hmmm how sure are you of Sharapova's weeks in the top 3? your top 1, top 5, top 10 and top 20 are consistent with mine just not the top 3

backhandsmash
May 27th, 2012, 10:55 AM
Not super sure! What do you have her at?

Also, I'm not sure at all about the Top 5 weeks for the Williams sisters. WTA has Serena higher and Venus lower. And I think Sveta's might not be right, either. But it's what I had to work with. :)

my mistake. 133 weeks should be correct.

May 27th, 2012, 11:46 AM
hmmm... in my Sharapova stats update thread here's what I have for Mash:

Weeks in Maria's career spent at (as of May 28, 2012)
Top 1: 17
Top 2: 90
Top 3: 138
Top 5: 243
Top 10: 300
Top 20: 390

but if both yourself and KleineBiere have her at 133 weeks in the top 3 as of this week I have no reason to believe otherwise. I wihs the WTA kept these kind of stats...

Can you link to your thread, please. :)

Yep, I've edited my thread to 133 weeks.

and sure thing. it's nothing special though, just everything to do with Maria and only Maria. :p

We already have a thread giving a ranking breakdown for Caro. I update it every couple of months but if others want to update it more often they can do so.

I'm planning on updating it after the French Open.

Wozzy loses 440 points next update (RG R3+Copenhagen), so she actually needs a QF to increase her points tally.
