I was just wondering if this has happened before?? :unsure:

Cuz I am sure Kim will win a Grand Slam, but has anyone ever achieved number one before their slam breakthru??

If not, I am not sure she deserves it... :fiery:

In terms of deserved or not, I don't think Kim deserves the #1 ranking any less than say, Lindsay who was #1 in a year where she didn't win a grand slam. Rankings are over a 1 year period, not over a lifetime so the never having won a slam arguement isn't a valid one. The hasn't won a slam this year is a valid one however it has been discussed over and over and you can find a million other threads about it, no need to start another one :)
