I fancy Hsieh to win the whole thing but Ms. Kvitova is 2 match away to become no. 1.

Still salty Pliskova get there first.
I adore Petra but I don't want another slamless number 1. Hope Halep can take the title or Osaka remain #1. I feel like we'd be back in a 2009 vortex where Serena held 3 slams and wasn't number 1 while Safina was (and delivered the hilarious "she won Rome and Madrid" line).

Osaka holding 2 slams but Kvitova being number 1 without 1 would just be silly to me.

Petra has 2 Wimbledon titles, remember?

Wozniacki is fighting like a champ here at such a crucial part of the game. Deuce down 5-4. Hsieh 2 points from the win but Caroline is so good!

She won't hold a slam, correct? The rankings don't remember slams from 5 years ago right? Or did I miss something where they do?
Unfortunately ranking doesn't work the way you want it to. Otherwise we'd have to wait till June for the new Nr 1 player.

Wozniacki - generous in defeat - still signing fan's memorabilia. Hopefully some sponsors is going to give Hsieh a decent sponsorship deals - no more mismatched Nike(top), Adidas(shorts), Nike (shoes). Congrats to Hsieh. Well-deserved win. Almost looks like Hsieh was going out of steam judging by the tiebreak score.

Please, no! She doesn't need a clothing sponsor – girls who all look the same and sometimes literally indistinguishable one from another are horrible. She at least has her own style.

Osaka has been pathetic since the AO.
I didn't know the "undeserving #1" meme had already been extended to "not holding a Slam currently".
It's becoming increasingly hard to deserve that #1 spot, sheesh.
Kvitova is not an undeserving #1 by any means: she's a double-Slam winner, a Slam finalist, and she's been very close to the number 1 spot in the past.
She has also had one of her best seasons so far.

#2 seed Halep moves past Venus Williams and is into the QF.

Will face Wang (which one? who knows) for a SF spot.

She's still in the running for the #1 ranking.

Something about Halep's game is just not good for Vee. She has to be way too consistent and constant in her groundstrokes and Halep gets everything back.
