I think it is obvious that most consider the no. 1 to be the most coveted achievement in tennis.

For one, every one is obssessed with it. After all, when was the last time someone said, "(Player's name): The making of a false GS winner"?
So the no. 1 ranking is more important than some people would lke to let on.

On top of that, while there have been 30 different GS winners in the open era, there've only been 11 no. 1s (?). Thus proving it is much more difficult to attain the no. 1.

No, the obsession is because the fans of the outgoing #1 don't like the idea of her giving it up. They can post 1000 different issues, but that is what it boils down to.

I've read posts saying the only reason Kim is becoming #1 is because Serena plays less events/ is injured.

I just have one question for people who think/post that:

How is that Kim's fault? If Serena plays such a light schedule, then she should be ready to face the consequences. Infact, it looks to me like she is facing the consequences and she seems to be fine with that. It's some of her fans that seem to have a problem with it.

In the end, when all is said and done, Kim Clijsters will be a name on the very short list of women to hold the #1 ranking. And no one can do jackshit about it.
