Re: Welcome to the Top 10 Jelena Ostapenko!

It's been her best year at all Slams, and she was in the QF's of Wimbledon following her FO win.

I enjoy her, so a welcome addition to the Top 10! So much better than the overrated Kashitkina.

Re: Welcome to the Top 10 Jelena Ostapenko!

She has nothing to defend for the rest of this year, so should be able to overtake Cibulkova for 9th.

Cibulkova likely won't finish anywhere close to 9th. She won't be able to defend her Singapore points.

Re: Welcome to the Top 10 Jelena Ostapenko!

Though the US swing was a bit disappointing a deserved achievement
GS winners for the year should be in top 10 at least

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Eugenie Bouchard, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

Re: Welcome to the Top 10 Jelena Ostapenko!

Definitely well deserved with great consistent performances in most slams this year.

It would be refreshing to have her in the YEC!!! I hope she can make it to Top 8, together with Sloane!

As much as I dislike Ostapenko and her terrible attitude, this does not make sense. In the last 12 months, which is how rankng is built, she did well enough to be there. Does not matter US Open, she won Paris and Qf in Wimbledon.

Re: Welcome to the Top 10 Jelena Ostapenko!

Her year as a whole clearly deserves it.

This year's slam winners will be ranked 1, 10, 17 and 22. I can't remember a time when the average rank of the slam winners was so low.

Runners up at 2, 5 and 12.

Uh, if there's one player who's dramatically overrated, especially on this forum, it's Ostapenko
