Congrats Simona for 1000 days consecutively in top 10

Today Simona Halep makes 1000 days consecutively in top 10

In my opinion this is a big achievment for such a small (and humble) player.

I remember quite well, with how much scepticism her rise in 2013 was commented in this forum (to say it friendly), and I know some of her fascinated fans maybe exaggerated.

But anyway ... let´s be honest, neither her fans and nor the "non-believers" (don´t want to call them "haters") would have expected this achievement about 3 years ago.

So much consistence for such a (quite) long period deserves some appreciation!

Congrats, Simona!

Re: Congrats Simona for 1000 days conscutively in top 10

She and Serena have been the only consistent Top 10 players over the last three years. Congrats.

Cool stat! 'Grats Simona Faults she may have, consistency doesn't seem to be one of them.

Wonder how many days some of the more well travelled top tenners have overall, eg. Serena, Aga, Sveta.

Re: Congrats Simona for 1000 days consecutively in top 10

Well done Simona, good staying power! She's had a few slumps in that period but every time she's bounced back really strongly.

Close to 90% of that period she's actually been in the Top 5. It took her just 7 weeks after breaking into the Top 10 to make the Top 5 and the 2-3 months she had this season at #6 & #7 has been the first time since March 2014 that she's been out of the Top 5.

I thought Radwanska is staying longer than that, no?

i remember she was in the same quarter as serena in 2015 US Open so i'm pretty sure she wasn't top 10 whole last year

Re: Congrats Simona for 1000 days consecutively in top 10

It is very remarkable, I am always happy to see smaller girls up there like Roberta, Carla or herself, they are trully examples

Congrats to her and her fans

Well done Simona, remarkable consistency. Hard to see her dropping out of the top ten next season.

Yup, she dropped to 15.

Per Wiki:
At the 2015 Mutua Madrid Open, Radwańska defeated Lara Arruabarrena and Casey Dellacqua before losing to Caroline Wozniacki in the third round. As a result of this loss, Radwańska dropped outside of the Top 10 for the first time since October 2011.

Incidentally, let's assume these dates are somewhat correct (give or take a week or two)
The total number of days between Monday, October 10th, 2011 and Friday, May 8th, 2015 is 1,306 days.

2016
Queen Aga: YE3 - Beijing Slam, Olympic Tourist, WTA Shot of the Year, Most Energetic Player Award
King Andy: YE1 - Wimbledon, Olympic Gold Medal, YEC, Paris Indoors, Rome, Shanghai

Congratulations Simona! Incredible really for a woman of her small stature, and a great example of fighting spirit, and great use of talent.
