Caroline Wozniacki and 15 Least-Deserving No. 1s of All Time

Caroline Wozniacki was the No.1 on the WTA Tour for 67 weeks, but has never come around to win a Grand Slam tournament.

Is her No.1 status justified? is a question that comes up among tennis fans around the world—not without any element of doubt either.

Wozniacki spent her time at the top with help of mediocre performances from others on the Tour.

Thanks to the emergence of Victoria Azarenka and Petra Kvitova, Wozniacki has slipped further down the pecking order. 

Who are the other No.1s in the history of tennis who did not deserve the position bestowed upon them? 

These No.1 players fall into three categories

  • players who were No.1 but never won a Grand Slam
  • players who won one Grand Slam (or maximum of two) in their entire career
  • players who won Grand Slam on only one type of surface - clay-court or hard-court specialists
