Yes I agree with some of your points. I guess what needs to be distinguished is the definition of a No. 1 player. Is it beating the best players out there or is it consistently winning titles/going deep in tournaments?faboozadoo15 said:come on... with how sharapova is playing she would be beating any top 20 players out there too. she just hasn't played as many as kim. maria has only lost to serena and lindsay and has 2 titles so far this year and nothing less than a semifinal anywhere. kim has 1 title and some great wins, for sure.
and beating venus (fresh off a win over serena) is tougher than beating myskina, dementieva (yea, im a fan...), and amelie when she's going for the #1 ranking. maria also played an incredible match against justine who is also a much better player than her ranking tells.
