Re: Rivals for the number one spot

I also don't want her to lose the ranking. This is what she has worked so hard for, she should do her best to defend it. Maria is close but she is not quite unbeatable right now. There are many challenges awaiting her in Tokyo and the same in Beijing.

Re: Rivals for the number one spot

I feel sorry for Sharapova twisting her ankle. Not the way I wanted Caroline to keep #1.
Well, I guess Vika and Petra are still in the race for YE #1, especially if one of them wins Tokyo, which seems likely.

A quick recovery form Sharapova and she still has a chance too.

I just hope Caroline gets her act together and wins the YEC!

Re: Rivals for the number one spot

Seriously, this starts to feel spooky....every time she has an early exit lately, none of her competitors can really capitalize on it for some reason or another.

I´m not sure that more weeks being #1 is what she needs right now though...

Re: Rivals for the number one spot

Why not? If Maria was not injured she could still lose anyway and so could Serena, Kim or whoever. You never know how they'd do unless they actually played.

Re: Rivals for the number one spot

The WTA would love Caroline & Maria to battle for YE #1.
They are the top 2 women in all sports on the Forbes list.

But Maria will have more chances early next year.
Serena might be in the race later next year.

Right now its important for Caroline to play better.
She had two 3 setters, so she should be match ready for a good run in Beijing

I guess not.
Maria got injured, Vika and Petra lost their SFs and Caro is still the fave for YE#1.

And Vera will probably lose the final now.

It is getting a little bit eerie. Kim took the number one ranking briefly and has since played very little due to injury. The other slam winners have all slumped, to varying degrees, after their big wins. Vera has tailed off a bit and slid down the rankings, particularly the race rankings, Maria lost early at the US Open and in Tokyo and Viktoria had the misfortune of running into Serena in the third round of the US Open.

For some reason the tennis gods appear to want Caroline to keep that number one ranking. If she does end 2011 at number one I hope she has deep runs in Beijing and the tour championship, right now she is barely clinging to her ranking and it would be better if she fought to keep it.

Re: Rivals for the number one spot

Its a close race for No. 1...

Sharapova 6370
Kvitova 5685

Re: Rivals for the number one spot

Sharapova injured. Li and Kvitova losing their first match...
Caroline's chances of getting the YE#1 is improving. I just hope she ends the year in style, winning either Beijing or Istanbul...or both!

I'm hoping that she is able to avoid going 0-3 at the YEC. I'm really unsure about how she will do there. She has not had a ton of match play against her potential opponents this year. Between Tokyo and Beijing I was hoping that she would play as many of them as possible. Tokyo was a bust and it looks like she will have to make the semis and final to play any of them in Beijing.
