Venus doesn't even need Australia to be computer #1, she needs to stop withdrawing from fall events. Last year she only played Linz after the Open(and was Runnerup), so decent results at Linz and Munich could lift her over the top.
i think she prefers play excellent 10 events,than play so so 20 events.she isnt consistent for long time so she prefers to stay home and play only when she is in fit form.i think that's a choice,not a casual thing.anyway if she plays so rarely,she never will be #1!
I dont know what everyone is all in a tizzy about..
its not like they are cheating her of anything!
Venus is a very smart women... she knows what needs to be done to be number one! However, she has said slams are most important to her right now. So why can't people respect that, and quit whining about how she should be number one?
She has said herself that it will come in time.
neither williams sister has played very well at the oz open in their career yet, if venus can start now before serena then she could add more grand slam titles to her name. but i think with serena being so dominate this year and wanting that career slam then she will actually do really well this year.
