Top 12 wins in 2007

I remember somebody doing a list like this a couple of years ago, and I really enjoyed it. Since nobody seems to do it now, I thought I would start...

Below is a list of players who have beaten a top twelve player this year...of course the player's rank at the time of loss is used.

Why top 12? Because it seems this year, the tour has a group of players that shuffle between the 12-9 spots so often, I thought it made more sense!

Wins over top twelve players (retirements count, walkovers don’t) (order in each group done roughly by current WTA ranking):

Justine Henin: 4 wins
def. #5 Svetlana Kuznetsova, Dubai SF, 1-6 6-4 6-0
def. #3 Amelie Mauresmo, Dubai F, 6-4 7-5
def. #11 Jelena Jankovic, Doha SF, 6-7 6-2 6-4
def. #5 Svetlana Kuznetsova, Doha F, 6-4 6-2

Amelie Mauresmo: 4 wins
def. #11 Dinara Safina, Antwerp QF, 6-1 6-3
def. #12 Anna Chakvetdaze, Antwerp SF, 6-3 3-6 6-2
def. #4 Kim Clijsters, Antwerp F, 6-4 7-6
def. #11 Jelena Jankovic, Dubai SF, 6-2 ret.

Jelena Jankovic: 4 wins
def. #7 Martina Hingis, Sydney R32, 6-4 4-6 6-3
def. #3 Amelie Mauresmo, Sydney QF, 7-5 6-0
def. #11 Nicole Vaidisova, Sydney SF, 6-4 4-6 6-4
def. #6 Martina Hingis, Dubai QF, 7-6 6-2

Serena Williams: 4 wins
def. #6 Nadia Petrova, Australian Open R32, 1-6 7-5 6-3
def. #11 Jelena Jankovic, Australian Open R16, 6-3 6-2

Re: Top 12 wins in 2007

After tomorrow, either Henin will join the elite group of 2007 with 4 wins...or Kuznetsova will take her first top 12 scalp of the year. I love both players...but c'mon JuJu!

Re: Top 12 wins in 2007

When did Jankovic defeat Jankovic in Sydney SF? That seems fairly impossible.

Lucie has an impressive resume thus far in 2007.

Re: Top 12 wins in 2007

Well if you only look at the top 10 wins, the ranking is changed a lot, with Mauresmo much lower and ... Lucie Safarova leading!

Re: Top 12 wins in 2007

Lucie with the most impressive wins. But Amelie actually has 2 wins over Anna (you forgot the one in Antwerp), so she leads. The win in Paris was in the quarters, I think.

Anna C was ranked 13 in the world during Antwerp, so just missed the cut for counting. Impressive memory though
