I'm a big Venus fan but I have to say, even before reading the article, that the fact that V&S would be 1,2 does NOT mean it's a good system.http://www.tennisweek.com/features/fullstory.sps?inewsid=6631644#top
best and most sensibel article i have read on the rankings, serena and venus would be 1 and 2 in the world based on this system
Had no idea about that.In 1999 Davenport won Wimbedon and beat Hingis in the year end Championships — and reached the semis of two other majors. Davenport won the same number of tournaments as Hingis that year — seven — and held a 3-1 head-to-head advantage over Hingis. Hingis lost in the first round of Wimbledon that year. But Hingis compiled more points overall than Lindsay, and edged her out for the top spot. Again quantity over quality.
ok, here's the deal people...it really isn't rocket science...
Safina has amassed 8951 points over the past year, and by my calculations, though I may be wrong, 8951 is a larger number than 8272 which is Serena's amassed total...
logically, the person who has the higher number of points should be Number 1 right? or wrong?
Venus has amassed 7102 points over the past year, and guess what, this is the FIFTH highest amount of points amassed! hmmm could this mean her ranking is No.5?!!?!! shock horror! YES IT IS!
who would have thought a player who has amassed the 5th highest amount of points would be ranked...you guessed it, FIFTH!
you get my point, get the f*@! over it!
Hingis reached 3 grand slam finals in 1999 IMO, she deserved the top of the rankings. Davenport only got to 1 grand slam final.In 1999
i think hingis went
i think other than that Wimbledon first round..
she didnt lose before the semis in her other tournaments
