not how you begin."



PARIS (AFP) - Freshly-crowned Australian Open champion Serena Williams will look to continue her fine start to 2009 at the WTA Paris Open which got under way on Monday.

Williams's 10th Grand Slam singles title propelled her back to the top of the world rankings, but the woman she replaced, Serbia's Jelena Jankovic, lies in wait for the American top seed in the bottom half of an intriguing draw.

"Maybe it will change, the number one ranking, but it's not important,"
Jankovic said after her surprise fourth-round defeat to France's Marion Bartoli at the Australian Open.

"(There's) the whole year ahead of us, a lot of tournaments, a lot of battles out there.

"For me, the most important thing is how you finish, not how you begin."

Not so important after you lose it to the true #1, I guess...

:lol:Being #1 is better than winning a slam to her, and now being #1 is not important.:tape:
exactly. She just said at the end of '08 that being #1 was more important than winning a slam cuz at a slam you can just get lucky for 2 weeks. Now it's not important. :tape:

Maybe because that was '08 and now it's '09... i think it's called changing your priorities..;)

Opinions change depending on the situation. Notice how when Jelena was #1, it was the most important thing to her and the Serena fans were saying it didn't even matter. Now Jelena doesn't think it's a big deal and Serena fans are flaunting it. It works both ways.

It's true. Year end #1 is more prestigious than just being #1.

Ideally it would be nice to begin well and end well, wouldn't it?

Jelena is inconsistent with her opinions. Serena is. It's sour grapes talking trash when you're not No.1.
