Roddick or Hewitt, as I know Hewitt was dethroned by Federer.

Amazing!!!

Shame the women's world number 1 changes hands almost after ever slam.

re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

Azarenka's a deserving number one if she gets it back even if she doesn't win Wimbledon. She's had a great year, won the Australian and some other tournaments in that winning streak she had. She's won more than Kvitova & Radwanska this year so it's accumulated success that counts with the all important slam in Melbourne.

If she hadn't won a Slam it'd be hard to see her as a valid number one. I always despised Wozniacki as number one for so long because she rarely looked like winning a Slam other than the US Open when she easily lost to Clijsters in the final.

Have to agree.
If there is a current women's tennis player that deserves number 1, it's Azarenka.

On a different topic, while looking through the World Rankings, I decided to look at who is the top greek tennis player. I scrolled down and down and down and then finally I found Alexandros Jakupovic. He is 599 in the world. It's just depressing since we do produce alright sporting talent and to have our best tennis player that low is just depressing.

Link plz to the ranking archive section.

It was really annoying when Wozniacki was #1 and would be eliminated before the quarters of slams. Even this Wimbledon she got beaten in the 1st round. They need to fix their scaling of points.

iirc I read that Fed can become #1 again if he wins Wimbledon this year. Is that true, and if so, how? Sure Novak is defending X amount of points, and Fed would gain X amount of points, but surely with Novak making the French final he'd have more than Fed could possibly earn.

re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

It does seem strange but Fed did win several tournaments at the end of 2011. It is hard to believe he could jump Novak with points for this Slam given how many Novak's won and that Fed's not been in a Slam final for so long.

You go to the ATP Rankings page and on top there is a drop down list of dates going back to 1973.

there are three Drop Down boxes:

25.6.12 / Top 100 / All countries
Click the 25.6.12 Box

Then when you pick the date that you want just click "GO" that's next to the drop down boxes.

(Hope I explained it well)

Looking through the WTA site, all Azarenka has to do is beat Paszek and she's #1 again. Crazy.

Yeah. I dont why but he will get the No 1 spot if he wins the wimbledon.

Ferrer is destroying Del potro atm. He won the first two sets. I dont think Potro can make a comeback.

Ferrer looking like he's heading to victory against Del Potro.

Murray looking like he's through too.
