Halep is end-of-year #1 again, but injured

Despite a disappointing Wimbledon and U.S. Open, this is the year that Simona Halep got her first major title in tennis.  I hope she gets a couple more.

Last year, despite not getting that first major, she finished the season ranked as the #1 tennis player in the world.  Then she battled Wozniacki in a dramatic Australian Open final, and lifted the trophy at the French.

She'll end this year ranked #1 again, but a back injury is limiting her, and she may not be able to play in the end-of-year Women's Tennis Association Finals in Singapore.

Still, she's been ranked #1 for 50 weeks, which has only been exceeded by nine women -- and this is the Serena Williams era, after all.  That's pretty impressive.

Hope she gets over the injury soon, and keeps on doing what she does so well.
