No.......Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario and Venus played three tournaments while they were #1.

Kim played five tournaments while she was #1

Jennifer Capriati played six tournaments while she was #1

Dunno about not playing when #1 but I certainly was never #1 when I was playing...

It probably happened when Steffi/Monica were switching #1 back and forth in '91.

Also, Lindsay's #1 at the end of '01... I don't believe she played.

I think she played a lot of indoors while she was ranked no.1. Didn't she have a great streak until the YEC when she turned her ankle? (correct me if I'm wrong)

She didn't get #1 until after YEC, though... or the week before, I can't remember.

We know that, Mr. Look-It-Up...

Every #1 has played as #1.

I was referring to a specific time when Lindsay was #1.

She didn't play in her last #1 reign. Thanks.

I think Lindsay got to no.1 by beating Kim in the semis in the YEC that year.

She defaulted against Serena so I don't think she played at all as no.1 as she went straight into her operation.

These facts are from memory so probably wrong ...

Yeah, I think I agree with ally baker...

She had a really good indoor season and finished the year #1 but I think she got it after making the final of the YEC where she had to withdrawal against Serena.

that's what i thought, she got the #1 ranking because of that last win and then defaulted.
