Even if Jelena does pass Serena, Serena will not be number 12. Jelena is in the top 10 already, so Serena won't be squeezed off. You've got to find 11 people to be ahead of Serena before Serena is number 12. Right now, there are only 5.
I just cant stand that everybody is laughing for someone has to bet for serena. Why not laugh at jelena too. Theres not much difference. By the way Serena was before number 4 and slides back to as low as 10 or 11 this year, while jelena is climbing up.
Laughing is justifiable if I chose Lindsay/Venus/Martina regardless of injuries. No way this three could drop below top 10 this year. But as I have said, if its possible with the girls named on the poll specially jelena, why not Serena.
I disagree They are two different calibre of players. Serena plays few tourneys and look at her ranking. Serena won a slam and made it to a final. Jelena plays many tourneys and Serena is still ahead of her. Common sense tells us that Serena only needs to play more to be up there with Lindsay/Hingis/Venus?Jennifer. In fact she has a winning record over the #1 player. Jelena doesn't. Serena may not be in top 5 but her game is just as good. Jelena needs some more time to be up there with the top power players. Mark my words. If Serena stays healthy she will only RISE in ranks, and I shall bump this thread when it happens. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> Jelena is damn good but nto as great as Serena is now. IMHO of course.
