Number One?

Wozniacki wins most matches
Romney does the same
They both tend to blandness –
Pablum keeps them mum.

Each is a reluctant favorite
Even if they win
They eschew looking desperate
As they get to number one.

It could be their constant smiles
Or very perfect hair
But even with every extra mile
They never get to there.

So people look to other places
Find imperfect seconds
Love the extra spicy races
But get more than reckoned.
