Most underrated in the top ten?

Who's the most underrated. I think Lindsay. Nobody even notices she's alive most of the time.

I agree about Lindsay.

Elena D has got a lot of press attention since the beginning of the year. Ditto Myskina. Add in Kim and Lleyton. You have a lot of publicity.

Lindsay probably hits the ball the best (along with Jen) in the Top 10.

Lindsay....you´re right. It almost seems like people take her for granted, because nobody really talks about her.

For an over the hill player, nice to see Serena back in the top 10...her year obviously hasn´t been THAT bad afterall.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Yep,Lindsay. She's never involved in any controversies,doesn't dress funny (or cool,depending which side of the issue you're on),isn't involved in any other publicity getting activities,and she ain't as pretty as some of the other girls. I think that she prefers it that way though. A modest woman who's perfectly happy to just play some great tennis and has no need to be in the limelight all the time.

Kim Clijsters, just because everyone is writing her off from winning slams.
And she has a better odd than any Russians to win slams.

most fdef lindsay and lena d... much more so lindsay... i think most people expect her to be in the top ten and winning tournaments, but no one has really realized that she has quietly put together the best year of all the players in 2004 (missing the us open, poor girl, i would not feel like moving at all let alone going back on court after that)

Elena Dementieva
Current Ranking: #5

2006 Single Win/Loss Record: 42-14

2006 Doubles Win/Loss Record: 15-10

Winner(2): Tokyo Pan Pacific Open (Tier I), JPMorgan Chase Open (Tier II)
Finalist(1): Pacific Life Open (Tier I)


Also A Proud Fan Of:

[[ Hingis | Hantuchova | Jankovic | Pierce | Golovin ]]
[[ Myskina | Dokic | Zvonareva | Ivanovic | Mirza ]]
[[ Chakvetadze | Kournikova | Pironkova | Sugiyama ]]

To a certain extent, I understand Elena being under-rated too. I remember she was termed a one dimensional player who didn't have a Plan B. Boy, now she has a Plan C, D and E. And she has to because of that serve.

I think she's beginning to get respect. The USO was proof of that.

I don't think she'll be under-rated as she once was due to her RG and USO.

Udachi Elena!!
