The slams are "overrated"? You make them sound so insignificant as if just ANYBODY can win them.XMan said:If Kim reaches the top spot then she deserves it. It means that she would be the most dominant player on the tour even if she wouldn't win a GS. In fact, I think that the GS are overrated, you gain more then twice as many point by winning a GS in comparison with a tier 1 but in the end the players and the level of play remains the same. You could argue that a grandslam win needs 7 consecutive wins and a tier 1 normally 5 or 6 (for a topseed) but in fact it is only an addition of a few easier rounds for the topseeds. I also think that players who play less then 17 tournaments have no reason to complain when they lose their top spot to a player who plays more tournaments. If they want to keep their top spot then they will need to play those 17 tournaments, that's the game.
