View Full Version : Venus's Rank!?!?

Apr 14th, 2003, 12:37 AM
Will Venus drop down to 3 next week?

How hard will it be for her to maintain her #2 rank through the clay court season and the rest of the year?

Someone who has a good understanding of the ranks and knows what's going on...please help!

She will fall to #3 on Monday...She will stay there for two weeks, then I think she will be back to #2

I think Kim can pass her again before Wimbledon because Kim plays a warmup and Vee doesnt...but that all depends on how both perform in their next two clay events

Venus points to defend pre french - Hamburg 230
Kim points to defend before French - Hamburg 361 and Rome 200

V is fine, kim plays almost twice as much, and she cant add points easily so V will be just fine

Unless Venus bombs, it kind of looks as if she will be number 2 for the French.

What I'm worried about is the seeding for USOPEN...

I want V&S on opposite sides...the hype around the Open will not be the same without the potential
of a final showdown...

whatever will the new york papers talk about...

The seed for Wimbledon will be in question. Kim has 3rd to defend at Roland Garros; Venus has Runner up.

While Kim does play a warm-up to Wimbledon, she lost in the QF last year.

However, I think Wimbledon will give Venus the #2 seed because she's Won, Won, Finals in the last three years.

The seeding for the GS's this year will definitely be interesting to see..

Vee controls her own destiny for the #2 rank. I think she'll be ranked #2 anyway.

Rankings are rankings!

Also Venus has the right to play more tournaments and have a higher ranking! Kim plays more, that's right, but that's why she deserves this place, she works for it!

Always saying that this is only because Kim plays much more tournaments is a bit ridicilous, she works for it... Btw; only 17 tournaments are counted in the ranking!!

filip all that was stated was that V will be fine and that Kim plays alot more and thus will have less to add then Vee. Which is a good prospect because they are so close.

Rankings are rankings and spankings are spankings as well.
