Who, in your mind, is currently the 3rd best player?

I'm talking current 3rd best female tennis player, not ranking, just in case someone needs clarification.
Let me go by elimination.

- If Serena is playing anyone and is healthy, I expect her to win. So, in my mind, she's the best player right now.

- If Venus is playing anyone but Serena, and is healthy, I expect her to win. So, in my mind, she's the second best player right now.

- If Clijsters is playing anyone but Serena and Venus, and is healthy, I expect her to win. So, in my mind, she's the third best player right now.

- As for the fourth best, I don't have any solid expectation but Justine does come to mind as well as Davey, Cappy and Momo.

As a side point, when the first and second best don't or can't play due to various reasons including illness, why can't we accept that it behoves the third best to take the helm and be #1?

if they were all to have a throw down, im saying the sisters come out on top then Kim and the other one.

whos had the best year? Serena Justine (the slam) Kim Venus

vs the other three? Serena Venus Kim Justine

i would say Kim is doing better than Venus right now. but Venus has her number ;)

so my educated opinion says Serena Kim Venus Justine *shrug* :D
yea cos no way the number one player can be talented :eek:

id rather she be stupid and doing what she does than "talented" and.....not doing it :tape:
why is it "talented" players often get the sh*t kicked out of them???

i think you are confusing talented with........vertically challenged baby ;)

vs the other three and you put Kim above Justine? Justine has two wins against Serena and Kim this year. Kim has three wins over justine but no wins over either Serena nor Venus.

And you say Kim is doing better than Venus right now so you put her above Venus, yet you put Justine, who has also done better than Venus this year below her? :confused:

Indeed, so you don't have to give arguments that don't make sense to back up your opinion. :p
dont speak to me :)

Hendouble: baby stop trying to be aint working ;)

Oh, but it is SJW, it is. You see, using the curious logic of WTAWorld I deduce that you wouldn't be making the effort to respond to me if you didn't find my posts funny in some way. That, and I get too much positive rep not to continue with this egregious posting style of mine...
ahhhhhhhh thats what it is........rep whore :p
btw: calling tennis players who earn millions a year stupid only makes urself look MOREso :rolleyes:
Hendouble said:
Not really - intelligence isn't an essential quality for earning millions, as many moronic company executives and spoilt heiresses have proved in the past. I'll bet I'm more intelligent than a lot of tennis players out there, the difference is I'm not as talented or as strong-willed as them. Well, OK, I'm not talented or strong-willed at all in comparison to them, but I bet I could beat a couple of them at Trivial Pursuit.
someone who earns that much--> isnt stupid. now David Beckham might not be the brightest sod to grace the planet bless him, but golden balls is a VERY VERY smart mofo

I'm amazed Justine gets 50% more votes than Kim as 3rd best player. Perhaps I shouldn't be, she's ranked #3 after all. Oh, boy!
Kim is the second best player right now
TennisPower said:
Fair enough. For a moment, suppose both Kim and Venus were healthy and were about to play each other, which one would you expect to win?
you missed my point. ive already said that Venus is overall the second best player in the world

Kim is the second best player right now. this year she has owned the non slams. but if she faced Venus at the US.....9 times out of 10 Venus would kill her (not literally but she would win ;))

ok imma do my list

clay-Henin (apparently :angel: ) Serena Kim/Venus
grass-Venus (4 wimby finals in a row? :eek: ) Serena Kim/Henin
HC- Serena Venus Kim..............................Henin
indoor-Serena Venus Kim Henin
overall-Serena Venus Kim Henin
See less See more
but arent the slams what matter?? to me i would prefer Melbourne to Moscow and London to Linz ;)
1 slam is equal to 2?? :confused:

then Henin and Clijsters deserve to be rated the best with Serena ;)

nahhhh i get what u mean, Kim has OWNED the lower levels this year (lower as in non slams lol :))
