She needed a little help from Svetlana Kuznetsova, but Jelena Jankovic will become the WTA’s 18th world number 1 come August 11. Kuznetsova needed to win the title to become number one herself, thus preventing JJ from taking the top spot. This really says something about the state of the WTA right now. Jelena will be the least accomplished player ever to reach the top, without having reached a grand slam final. It’s a sign of a weak era and the lack of a true dominant champion. Somebody better set the record straight at the Olympics and the Open because I’m tired of this nonsense.
