Over-30 players

is it just me or are there more players in the Top 150 these days who are age 30 and up?


Ruano Pascual
Tanasugarn (turning 30 in couple months)
Garbin (near career best ranking)
Gagliardi
Suarez
Pratt
Sugiyama
Kremer
Likhovtseva
Frazier (status unknown)
Raymond (status unknown)
Davenport (retiring)

i might have forgotten a couple.

edits:

Pierce (out injured indefinitely)
Craybas (near career best ranking)
Obziler
Smashnova
Brandi (turning 30 next month)
Peshke
de los Rios (not quite in Top 150 but gets benefit of the doubt for being a mom)

Anne Kremer is still alive--I mean, still playing?

Re: Over-30 players

you forgot Smashnova, Obziler.

the intresting thing that i've already posted last year is the amount of them playing single handed backhands. it's as though the 90s were packed with it, and now they are the only ones who still carry the game-style.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

full clay, and knowing her like i do - any tourny that gives out enough cash, which she can directly enter.

Re: Over-30 players

Why "status unknown" for Raymond?

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

Re: Over-30 players

craybas and peshke are missing here as well.
conchita martinez grandos still active
brandi is a couple of months from 30 as well.
rossanna de los rios is climbing up the ranks fast again, you can count her in.
washington was pretty solid before getting into health problems.

in the doubles side of things stubsy and huber are quiet ancient as well, right?
