Yes, she will.

And...your point is? Srtill a great amount of weeks at no.1, slam or not. She'll get one eventually, so if I was you, I'd milk the "she has no slam" shit as much as I can :yeah:
Amelie:

Booooo hooooo she passed Mauresmo :bigcry:
she will surely break the record of #1 weeks without win a slam :facepalm:
Why are you crying about this?

Haters crying as usual, desperate to point out that Caroline doesn't have a grand slam :weirdo: When she does get a slam, what will you all say? :lol: Haha, get on my level :lol:

im talking to pushniackis fans...and i am serious...dont you realize it is worse when you open threads like that ?? this way you make pushniacki only more hated/ridicolous to our eyes.

do i really have to believe you are really happy coz she surpassed amelie with weeks at number one ?? you all would exchange all these weeks with just a slam, i can bet :)

i think its just a way to get appreciation...but the result is the opposite...

This thread need to be deleted. We're not in the future. She has 35 weeks at number one. kman already lives in August, it's his problem, not ours.

She's secured 42, hence the parenthesis. No one else can reach her before August.

Enjoy your failure.

Absolutely not. Plenty of slam winners have been forgotten. There's lot of fluke slam winners whom the generally public have no fucking clue about. Being on a top 10 list of the longest reigning #1s along with all those legends is a way to be remembered. That list will continue to be passed around by pundits, in tennis articles etc. And Wozniacki is on it. Safe to say she's made the tennis history books.

I expect her to surpass Serena too on that list.

Thanks to confirm that she'll be only remembered when people will read that list. Nobody will think about her otherwise as it's the only thing she'll achieve.

Yes, count the number of slam winners versus the number of people who have been #1 for more than 40 weeks.

You'll find the list of former is a lot longer (a mile longer). Being #1 for 40+ weeks is way more special.

By the time Wozniacki retires, she'll have a bucket worth of slams anyway so the point is moot.

Who remembers who Myskina was? She was a slam winner, right? Nobody remembers her. Majoli??? No, nobody remembers her either. Wozniacki is already remembered and will be remembered for a long time to come, and when she wins slams, her amazing career will be remembered even more.

Where is her slam?

The fact that she surpassed Momo, a great and classy champion, is bad enough already even if it is only with the #1 ranking (which is representative of nothing more than your seeding in a draw these days).

Wrong, every one who loves tennis will know who Wozniacki is. Her many weeks at no.1, her many slams and her many titles will be remembered. You can bet on that. She will up there will the Williams sisters, Davenport, Hingis etc.

Exactly. The general public don't remember those names.

But when peple go to look up stats for "weeks at number one" for Graf, Navratilova etc., they'll see that list with Wozniacki on it and they'll know her name.

So even without slams, Caroline has already made the tennis history books. Being only 20 years old, she has a lot of time to solidify her place further. I expect her to surpass Serena on that list and win a number of slams too.

It'll be glorious.

as for Majoli...i do remember her, the athelte who didnt allow higis getting the gran slam.

edit : maybe im wrong, theyll be remembered 2gether with JJ, the most shameful number 1 in the wta ranking

Ummmm..........since when do tennis fans that only tune in for ESPN's coverage of the SLAMS go actively look up who else was #1? They care about what the commentators harp about, which is number of SLAMS and achievements at SLAMS. Look at Federer. They could have talked about how many weeks at #1 he spent every single day. They, instead, talked about him being the owner of 16 major titles, his reaching the quarterfinals of every major he's played since 2004 RG, and other major-related achievements.

I'm not saying that's impressive...but when you say people go to look up stats for weeks at number one, I'm pretty sure you mean us and occasionally the ESPN stats crew.

The utter arrogance by a few Caroline "fans" really shouldn't damper the opinion of everyone who is a Caroline fan. There are two, maybe three really aggravating ones--and they do it on purpose. Ignore them. :shrug:

I said it before, I'll say it again, having wild expectations for any athlete is the absolute worst thing to do, because you never know what will happen in the future. Expecting Wozniacki to amass more than 150 weeks at #1 and a handful of slams is utter folly, and really just stupid. But I get the feeling these few idiots in particular say this just to annoy us...

Good on Wozniacki for achieving this. She is for sure the best player to not have yet win a slam.

I did. Before I started following tennis. I've always been curious about who's the longest reigning #1s in different sports, even chess and so on. Wikipedia is a great way to find out about that. I know lots of other people who look stuff like that up on Wikipedia.

So: being number one – is it hard to handle? Having reached the top, do you suddenly feel as if you’re on the edge of a great existential void? “For me, it’s pretty easy. Because I’m so young, and I’ve arrived where I want to be, and I know that I want to stay there as many weeks as possible. I always have goals. Every time I step into the court, I want to win the tournament.” That’s a pretty firm no, then.


What about Wimbledon? She says she’s fine on grass – the bounce is very similar to the indoor courts she’s just been playing on. I ask her which players she fears. “I don’t fear anybody,” she says. “If I play well it’s tough to beat me. If somebody beats you, it just means she’s too good that day.”
