Re: Will Elena Vesnina crack the Top 10?

I think she won't but I also think it's extremely dangerous to predict anything currently..

She has Charleston final points to defend in 3 weeks and might lose 300 points again. She's also still more than 500 points behind Svitolina with clay season coming next where she never did anything special?

It will depend on if she's really going to step it up. Honestly, her run here does not give me vibes of her suddenly becoming a Top 10er. She played of course very well and deserved to win, but I still think that she looked beatable.

She's probably going to win the Sunshine Double now

No.

She will drop lower after Charleston and won't defend her Wimbledon points

In sixth months, she'll be around #40-50

Re: Will Elena Vesnina crack the Top 10?

I think its possible, but I dont know. I've never seen her play like this tournament. This was her best tennis ever, IMO.
I look forward to seeing the Miami draw. Lena, Sveta and Pavs all played well here and I dont know if any will also contend in Miami
WTA tennis is usually erratic.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Will Elena Vesnina crack the Top 10?

Hm.

Lena has a solid enough record on green clay and is in my opinion a very very handy grass court player. So between Charleston/Eastbourne/Wimbledon I could actually see her defending a decent percentage of those points.

Then she would have to do more after Wimbledon compared to 2016 - which wouldn't be too hard. And no Olympic distractions this year either!

This is of course assuming she is still the same streaky player she has always been and is going to flop in Miami and achieve her usual complete absence of results on red clay.

If neither of these facts still stands - well then maybe the world is indeed coming to an end.

Vesnina has 1392 points on her ranking just since January which is good enough for world #37 right now. If she wins nothing in 6 months you'd expect her to be ranked about that high. But by simply playing and doing a mediocre job she should be even higher.

Re: Will Elena Vesnina crack the Top 10?

I don´t think so, she won IW but she didn´t impress that much, she could have lost IW in the final as well.

Henin, Kerber, Hingis, Plíšková, Federer, Thiem

Re: Will Elena Vesnina crack the Top 10?

No, she won't, but the sad thing is she will linger around the Top 20 now like a bad smell flopping to randoms in random draws.

Re: Will Elena Vesnina crack the Top 10?

there's almost a 500 points gap between #10 and Vesnina atm, while Svitolina, Venus and Konta have less to defend than her before wimbledon.. so it doesnt look very likely on paper

Re: Will Elena Vesnina crack the Top 10?

She just beat Simmons slayer Rogers, Budapest Queen Babos, World Number 1 Kerber, Australian Open Finalist Venus, Peaking Mladenovic and then Two Time Slam Winner & Runner Up Kuznetsova, she definitely earned her title and would deserve a top 10 more than someone like Elaine at the moment. The question is can she continue to have good wins in the rest of the season?
