    I thought that tennis was the only sport who had a beatable number one and that players stood in line to beat him and feel themselves proud about their deed...
    What do you think about this?...isnt it queer?...

    Hmm, if I'm interpreting this correctly you mean it's the only sport where an official number one is determined, and can lose tournaments and matches and still be number one? I'm not sure it's all that strange really. Most sports just don't have official rankings.

    No every sport organization has a standing or league system that determine the top players or teams, and any of them tends to lose somtime thats why ı dont understand the point.

    Yes, it's an individual sport with matchplay and a points per round system. Golf is different (more like racing) and so is boxing (more bout based rather than tournament based).

    I cannot think of another sport set up like this. Well, the other racquet sports, but the scale is different.

    Uhmm every sport doesn't have rankings. Most of the time some 3rd party will rank them but it doesn't really matter.

    NFL= playoff no rankings
    NBA=playoff no rankings
    MMA= Champion, no rankings
    Boxing= Champion, no rankings

    NFL and NBA are team sports, and MMA and Boxing you fight like every couple months so a ranking system would be stupid.

    Yes, because the REAL #1 never loses a match.
