"We all know who the real number one is. Quite frankly, I'm the best in the world."
-- Serena Williams, on...well, she's #1 apparently.
"You know, the ranking didn’t fall from the sky. She earned that ranking. She really deserves to be there, because she was playing well and had great results. The rankings don’t lie.
She played the same as the other girls played and competed, and she is now in the moment No. 1. Nobody can take that away from here. It will always say in her biography that she — even for a day you become No. 1 in the world, you can say, I was the No. 1 player in the world. Not many people can say that.
So I think it’s a great achievement and a dream come true for any player. She achieve that, so big congratulations to her. With a Grand Slam or without, it’s huge."
-- Jelena Jankovic, on Dinara Safina deserving #1 rank.
