One set away from year-end-#1 ranking

If only Wozniacki had lost the final set against Radwanska in RR, Kvitova would have been # 1.

Is that correct??

Has it ever been that close?

If you want to pin this on one person it would be Kuznetsova. She gifted Wozniacki an extra 620 points at the US Open.

Re: One set away from year-end-#1 ranking

Kvitova would rather have had it on her own racquet. For instance, she was slightly over a set away from doing it at Tokyo, 5-1 against Zvonareva in the semis and playing well. That was the difference between 620 pts and 395 i.e. 225

Re: One set away from year-end-#1 ranking

It would be Petra herself. Winning third set against Arvidsson in Beijing would have been enough. And there were other matches too.

She didn't give Caroline anything. Caroline fought and won that match and then won her next match.

Re: One set away from year-end-#1 ranking

we could also blame Pova's rolled ankle while we're at it...and Fiona's health issues, Snicker's addiction to retirements and so on and etc...in other words a lot of unfortunate circumstances led to Pushniacki clinging onto her spot as we can see

Sabatini was 2 games away from reaching the #1 when she lost 1991 Wimbledon final 8/6 in the third set. This is even sadder as she didn't even get to #2 during her career.

Re: One set away from year-end-#1 ranking

Well there were close matches Woz lost that she could have won, MP against Na in Melbourne, that match against Cibu at Wimbledon, so it goes both ways.

Just hope Petra can seal the deal at the AO.
