That's pretty messed up of tfannis to say about you.

Dang bandabou, you gonna take that?

Hahaha.....so suddenly what happened this year because of injury is the norm?!

About Kim....sure it is her decision..if her playing a tier III is required for her lil sis to get some play time at tour level....hey go on, I´d do the same thing for my sis too!

And as they say:"Not elke Clijster is a Clijster!"

Sure, sure....but does Kim even know the word: BREAK?!

WHATEVER! Who cares ?? Serena began the year @ nr1, Kim took over, and now Justine reaches the top spot... nice for tennis, if you ask me. But stop bulling about those rank-systems! Tennisplayers have all year long to prove who's best!! Other athletes (think sprinters, swimmers,...) have only few occasions on which they have to peek! The possibility of 'luck' and 'badluck' is a lot higher there. So whoever reaches the nr 1 in tennis has to do something (really) well to deserve it ! Live with it

banned abou Mr. Jon is correcting: Ms. Kim has gained 10 this past year of row III, being equal the victories of Mss. Justine/Serena' s 2 GS in the running system points.

BTW, this Kim doesn't deserve the #1 debate is getting tired. yes, Justine won 2 slams....and...................Kim still can take #1. The system has been like this for a long time, some people need to let it go and get over it.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!! I couldn't agree more...this debate is getting old!
