To be honest, I wouldn't want to see Dinara get to #1 without a GS win.
I don't want her to face the same crap Jelena Jankovic did last year.
She's already facing it
I don't have the same connection to Dinara as to Marat, I actually think they are both very different. She will only win a slam if her draw is very good and she doesn't have to face Serena.
That's a bit harsh, she has beaten Serena before, and she also reached big tournaments' finals after beating seeded players in the previous rounds.
