Well, I said this is my updated list, so, as Azarenka's fan which I think you are, I would expect from you to be happy with this.
I still think Ana has bigger overall influence on tennis world, but respecting the rules, it is obvious that someone with 2 GS titles and #1 should be ahead of someone with 1 GS title and #1.
But, if Ana would have 2 GS titles, she should be considered greater than Vika with 2 GS IMO.

Li is great but she can't be ahead of Ana, Azarenka or Kuznetsova. If we would consider only off-court influence, I would pick Serena, Maria, Ana and Li as top 4 immediately.
