Kim beating Serena in the RG finalMartian Stacey said:ah well, we can dream anyway
i don't think you're right...gopher said:If Clijsters wins the trophy and Williams goes out in R4 or before, it is a fact.
Chances are slim mainly for the latter but the pressure must be felt by the Williams clan.
With respect to Serena this is absolutely true, as for Venus that's no longer truefleemke² said:But Kim doesn't have good results on grass yet
Ok It's all possible but please stop counting on bad performances of other players.
Kim may be number 2 now but imo she's still number 3! Rankings don't tell everything! Kim lost, with huge scores, of Venus in Antwerp and couldn't beat Serena so imo she is number 3. Kim also needs a lot more matches to keep her ranking while Venus and Serna almost don't play at all!
For me personally, I really hope Justine gets on the number 1 position someday but not because of an injury or something. If she does I hope she's better than the others and could beat them all. That's what a real number 1 is about
If you include points up till US open, it's even worse:great smash said:Ok, so far we've had a lot of assumptions on what would happen if player X were to win tournament Y and so on.
Hey, Serena might well hold on to the no. 1 for the rest of the year but
Roland Garros + Wimbledon is really the chance for Clijsters to close the gap.
No more assumptions what follows are simple facts:
RG + Wimbledon make up 32 % of Serena's points total
RG + Wimbledon make up 0 % of Kim's points total
This should make it likely that after Wimbledon the gap will probably be narrowed down. How far, we'll just have to wait and see.
fifiricci said:Kim fans in here should remember that she refuses to pay too much attention to rankings, so I dont think we should get our knickers in too much of a twist about them. That said, I am a Kim fan too and I would love to see her at No 1 for a while. If the consistency she has shown over the last 8 months continues I think she would be a deserved number 1.
Those critics in here who say that she's only close to the top cos she plays a lot of tournaments should remember too, though, that this year she has reached at least the semi finals of every tournament she has played and has won three of them. Therefore, she is displaying supremely consitent quality as well as quantity and hats off to her for that.
