#1 Scenarios for Australian Open

With OZ points off:

Serena: 9470.
Sharapova: 8645.
Azarenka: 8325.

Radwanska does not have a possibility of ascending to #1.

Azarenka:
- Must defend AND have Serena not make semifinals.
- OR Make final and have Serena lose in the third round or earlier along with Sharapova losing in semifinals or earlier.
- A semifinal loss will end her reign at #1.

Sharapova:
- Winning the championship with Serena losing in semifinals or earlier.
- Making final with Serena losing in quarterfinals or earlier and Azarenka losing in semifinals or earlier.
- Make semifinals and have Serena lose first round with Azarenka losing in semifinals or earlier.

Serena:
- Winning the championship, regardless of opponent.
- Making the final, regardless of opponent.
- Making semifinals and Sharapova does not win the championship.
- Making the quarterfinals with Sharapova losing in semifinals or earlier and Azarenka losing in final at best.

Bottom line? Very tough road for Azarenka to return to #1. Really between Maria and Serena.

Re: #1 Scenarios for Australian Open

In the hypothetical scenario of Vika beating Serena in the final, does she become the real number 1?

Re: #1 Scenarios for Australian Open

Funny how, after saying it's irrelevant most of the time, Willytards suddenly start caring about the #1 ranking when Serena nearly has it

Even IF Serena doesn't win the AO then she's pretty much guaranteed it for a period in the spring at the very least, seeing as she has little to defend until the claycourt season.

She makes it legitimate because she's actually an elite player unlike every other mug who's held it since 2008.

Re: #1 Scenarios for Australian Open

Re: #1 Scenarios for Australian Open

If she wins(which I'm hoping this doesn't jinx! ) she'll be at over 11,000 points with virtually NOTHING from the French Open that's pretty shocking, and it means a win here, carrying her form through Miami and the clay season, and a solid result at the french means she might be able to set a new all-time points record right? IIRC only 2 women from the 2000s have had over 11,000 points using the current ranking system, Serena at some point in 2003, and Justine at the end of 2007.

Re: #1 Scenarios for Australian Open

Serena should take it, I was hoping that Maria could be N1 especially after the beginning that Vika had last year but with Serena's end of season it's not possible. Maybe after Wimbledon or sth.

But the question is: do we really care? The ranking WILL come, so that's no worry.
Most if not EVERY Serena-fan will tell you: it's all about the majors. At this stage of her career, it's about climbing the ladder.
