The experiment that occurred when Dinara Safina was ranked #1 in the women’s tennis universe will soon be over. My girl, Serena Williams is headed back to where she belongs; the top! When the next rankings come out, next week, Serena will have a fitting “#1” next to her name.
Serena made her move, winning in the 2nd round of the China Open, while Safina continued to struggle, losing to Zhang Shuai in her 2nd round match.
Now, I understand why Safina was #1. I don’t agree, but I understand. Slow and steady apparently trumps winning the big events. I think the rankings should be even more heavily weighted to the Grand Slams, but the situation is what it is.
I’m just glad that things are back where they should be. Actually, I’d like Venus to be #2, but she can work on that next year 😉
