Ok kids here's the thing with the Kim being no.1 situation.
Yes she will be no.1 in a matter of days and yes she has not won a Grand Slam en route to that position. But it doesn't say anywhere in the rules that a Grand Slam is what you need or what you should have if you want to be no.1. People need to stop proclaiming Kim as the "false no. 1" or that she doesn't "deserve" it or that she hasn't done anything to merit that position.
According to the rules, the person with the most points get that position. And how do you get the points? By winning matches and tournaments. Something Kim has consistently done in the past 52 weeks. And if Serena wants to maintain that position then she should have entered more tournaments. She should have won more tournaments. Clearly she isn't doing what she should be doing so she doesn't really deserve to be no. 1 and she isn't doing anything to merit that position either. There are rules that are pertinent to both players and both players know it, people didn't complain about the rules last year when Serena was no.1 or when Venus was no.1 or when Jenn was no.1 if there wasn't anything wrong with it then there this isn't anyhting wrong with it now!! If the people who don't want Kim to be no.1 because she hasn't won a GS then make those who have already won GSs to do what Kim has done.

I agree Shap, all this 'fake #1' shit is becoming very tiresome... What did she do to deserve it? Played in alot of tournaments and played WELL. Thats all that matters. Yeah she doesnt have a slam as of yet, but we all know that eventually that'll change. She has the game to win one, and she will. I say props to you for achieving the #1 status WITHOUT any GS winner points! :bounce:

Bla, bla!! Kim´s no.1 in number only!! Serena should have won more tournaments?! Kim´s played in TWICE the amount of tournaments Serena´s played, but has only ONE MORE title than Serena.....Kim´s nothing more than a Pac-woman!!

In the end you can't convince people who don't want to be convinced.

Still, nice try :).
