This is very exciting, I would like Pliskova, but I doubt she would get the same sort of draw she did in Romeß

I cant stand it anymore.. Such a weak top 5 , I mean Pliskova , Osaka , Bertens - they are all good but number 1 should be someone Special .
Henin , Williams , Capriatti, Clijsters , Hingis and many others were so much better than todays top 5...

Osaka is literally as good as you can get out of the current players. She's young, ambitious, has good appeal and star power, and has won 2 Slams in a row, beating very former GS champions in both finals. Sure, she's not consistent but who is? Kvitova would be good but she needs a big win first. So name a better person to be #1. Someone needs to be.

If/when Osaka loses early, that would really open things up incredibly. If she makes the QF, it's much less exciting for the #1 race.

She'd need an incredibly kind draw, but I'd love Pliskova to win and get #1.

Damn Naomi has to make atleast finals to secure it. That's not gonna happen unless she plays her best. But i don't have much hopes on clay :v If she makes it to last 8, i will be happy man lol!
I hope kvitova wins it and brings her consistent form and wins a slam and gets number one!

Williams is still there and not in today's top 5

which means saying "Henin, Williams, Capriati, Clijsters, Hingis" is only nit-peaking

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

If Naomi loses it I hope the player that gets it wins RG. I'm not here for another slamless #1.

Osaka, Kvitová, and Kerber are on the level of the players you're mentioning . Bertens and Plíšková not so much at this point, but you also had players like Maleeva in the top five at one point…

Majors have huge points at the very end so if one of those wins or makes the final, it will be wide open going to Wimbledon. But if those 4 dont get any further than Osaka, she will still be ahead by around 800 points or more

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Nit-peaking isn't a thing.

For that to happen it would require:

- Osaka to lose before SF and Pliskova to make the final and lose to someone else other than Kvitova or Bertens.

or

- Osaka to lose before R4 and Bertens to make the final and lose to someone else other than Pliskova, Kvitova or Kerber.


Extremely unlikely.
