Will the Black family become co-#1 on ATP/WTA double rankings?

Cara Black hopefully as many already know has become #1 doubles player in the world on the WTA ranking despite being 6 years younger, but her brother Wayne Black is still struggling on the men's tour against some of the top teams on ATP circuit, and will not be able to reach number one until after Australian Open, also his first ever slam title. Cara's record, 25 titles including 2 slam titles is also much better than her brother's, 18 titles with 2 slam titles. Do you think that Wayne will reach number 1 to match Cara and even stay as siblings co-#1 on ATP and WTA for the first probably in tennis history?

Uh... He has two Slam titles, doesn't he? 2001 US Open and 2005 Australian. And his sister has two, Wimbledons 2004 & 2005, and they have some Mixed Doubles together.

Yes that is correct...but my point is....he still has not accomplished as much as Cara.
I hope he can reach #1 soon tho.

They've accomplished about the same in my opinion. Two doubles slam titles and I think two or so Mixed Doubles title (together). #1 and #3 - not much of a difference :lol:
