I'm delighted she's number 1. That she had to take it from my favourite player - Jen- is a blip but hey I'll get over it! I'm wondering am I the only person with Jen and Venus as my favourite players?!!!
Anyway congratulations Venus and Venus fans!:wavey:
Yep. She´s not my favourite player (in fact I prefer Jen) but I think she totally deserves it, I dont see how anyone can even begin to argue otherwise. Shes a great player, is getting better and better and has brought me a lot of enjoyment since day one of her career. I look forward to a year long battle to retain the top spot.
Yes. She deserves it, and it would have been very ridiculous if she had not reached that spot at least once!
Do I hope that she will remain there for years and years without any discontinuity? No. (And I'd have said the same about Kuerten who is my favourite male player.) Being chellenged and having to fight to try and regain the top spot is good both for a player and for the game.
