The start of 2014 has her defending 2200pts to Serena's 970...Even if she was only 2,000 points behind mathematically it cannot happen. Add the fact that Serena has the opportunity to add to her lead more than Vika can catch up. She currently is creating a cushion, and all she can do at the beginning of the year is build that cushion for the clay court season. I just don't see her losing it __________________ Blessed and Highly Favored.... Let The Word....Do the Work... Speak over YOURSELF... Follow Me! @CedricEarl

Yes, if anyone is going to overtake Serena it'll be towards the end of 2014 when most or all of the currently counted results will wear off. Basically someone can overtake Serena only on the back of her 2014 results because Serena's kicked so much ass this year.

Well only because she is the second best player, and it is rare to only have one number one for the whole year.

But Serena might keep it the whole year, she will at least until RG. (Most likely longer).

Serena was the same early in her career. Sloane can easily make #1 someday.

Serena was never a quitter, had won multiple slams and was the dominant world #1 at the age Sloane is now, so your comparison really breaks down at every level imaginable.

Of course Sloane will not be world #1 next year.

Richard has said many times that Serena is a quitter, lazy, part-time tennis player, etc.

She is going to end this year so far behind Serena in points it isnt funny, and she starts next year with more to defend too. Heck Serena wins the Australian Open (and she probably will) and year end #1 is already over next year too. The rest only with a chance to cut into the huge gap and give themselves a chance for 2015.

If she keeps rolling like she is she won't lose the ranking and she wants to end her career peaking. In my opinion a 5,000 point lead is a very good start lmao. __________________ Blessed and Highly Favored.... Let The Word....Do the Work... Speak over YOURSELF... Follow Me! @CedricEarl

I don't think he has ever called his child a quitter

Sloane will never be Serena, she'll be lucky to achieve half of Capriati's career or a 1/3 of Davenport's.

But if she is fit and healthy, she will have relatively good chances to gain more points e.g. in Brisbane (QF), possibly Dubai (-), Indian Wells (R4), Miami (-), possibly Monterrey (-) or Stuttgart (-), Madrid (R2), and Wimbledon (R2). Injuries messed up a lot Vika's schedule between Doha and Rome in 2013, and then again after Wimbledon. Madrid and Carlsbad were kind of "comeback" tournaments for her. After the US Open final she got sick in Tokyo. So the year 2013 has been quite sporadic for Vika, but there is still one title left to win in Istanbul. http://www.matchstat.com/Player/Victoria%20Azarenka In the beginning of the year 2014 Serena Williams obviously will have a huge lead as #1 but who knows if she is going to play as many tournaments next year as she did in 2013. Besides in sports someone like Virginie Razzano, Sloane Stephens, Sabine Lisicki or Miss Sleeping Beauty Michelle Larcher de Brito (for Sharapova) might cause upsets for big favourites. What comes to Maria Sharapova, her current and future fitness level is a big question mark, and she has only played 3 matches after the French Open 2013, 2 in Wimbledon and 1 in Cincinnati.
