re: Tennis Discussion Thread
She's deserving by being consistent, but the world #1 should dominate, like Federer, Nadal, Djokovic etc, and Azarenka/Sharapova haven't been remotely close to dominating as Serena this season. Sure, Serena should play more events to get her ranking up, but the majors should be scaled as such so someone can win a major and be assured of a top 5 rank that season.
Speaking of rankings, if Novak wins the US Open, does he become #1 again?
Fortunately no. Djokovic is the defending champion so he doesn't win any points if he win the US Open.
Btw Azarenka deserves to be No.1. As many have stated she has been the most consistent this year. Serena has only been good since Wimbledon. Victoria has done very well in the majors too.
