Does it matter if it's only the Race? There have been 3 majors this year...and Andy and Kim are both first in the Race, and both could end the year at #1 without winning a major.

The only reason there is big controversy over Kim on the boards is because she replaced the Williams sisters. The reason Roddick's ish hasn't made the press is because he is 'only' topping the Race at this point. Still, if he ends the year #1 without winning a major, there won't be as much controversy as surrounded Kim.
Or how about this one: There isn´t a con-sensus no.1 on the ATP tour, heck there have been 7 different slam winners in the last two years and NO ONE has won two slams in a year since ´99!!

Contrast this to the women´s game. It´s harder for people to believe or accept that Kim´s no.1 when she has NEVER won a slam, while there´s another player who has won FIVE of the last six! That just doesn´t sound good to people!

bandabou - Why are you quoting "five of the last six?" What Serena did in June 2002 shouldn't matter to who is #1 now...at the end of the year Serena will have won 2 of 4 majors, and Kim may have won 1. Add in Kim's extra titles, and she could be a deserving #1 in that sense.
sorry, but people don´t look at it that way. All they know is that in the past two years, Serena has won the most slams.
