On potentially being Number 1:
It's a pretty exciting and daunting prospect, to be honest. Mainly because I've never been so focused on tennis before and to see that focus paying off like this is scary and extremely fulfilling at the same time. Also, it takes a lot to be a consistent long-term number 1, and for all the controversy surrounding her this tournament, the last truly consistent number 1 was Ruflina. Though it may just have seemed so because of her age. I don't know. How old is she? 90? She was born on the tour, grew up on the tour, had babies (26 of them, to be exact) on tour, and is growing saggy and old on tour as we speak. I wouldn't be surprised if she asks for her casket to be buried underneath Arthur Ashe Stadium.
