Sorry but that will not last. Once she can't defend her points from post US Open (maybe before that) she will find herself around 11 or 12. Hantuchova will beat her to the top ten.

That was of course just my opinion, because it would take an inspired run for Jelena to repeat last year with good players actually playing the tournaments (I don't believe she beat one top tenner other than Kim Clijsters that entire run) I also believe that Hantuchova is a better player. But only time will tell.

Sometimes your opinions go to far, and I dont think criticizing peoples opinions is an opinion, it's an insult, and you go to far, when r u gonna get banned?

The term "quantity over quality" really stands out in Jelena's case. If she were to play an "normal" amount of tounaments each year, and not twice as many as the players ranked around her, she would not be in the top ten. Daniela should definitley be in the top ten, ranked in front of Jelena, and Henin, DEFINITLEY should be ranked higher than Jelena.
Not to be trashing Jelena or anything, she is definitley top 20 or even 15 material, but I am only stating the "REAL" facts.

garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Well done Jelena

She should be top 5 within 3 weeks or so

She is one of the nicest girls you'll ever meet and for thsoe who think they know what goes on within her life and the Tour, you have no clue.

This thread was created to give props to Jelena and it appears some people misread that as a reason to try to bring down the fact that she has achieved the #6 ranking. What a shame.

Yes, opinions are opinions but there's a time to give an opinion and a time not to.

I think Jelena gets overlooked far too often when comparisons are made to nice players and I have to say from what I've seen in her interviews and stuff that she is definitely one of the better persons on the tour and she has achieved much given some of the obstacles that have been in her way.

Congratulations on her new ranking.

Now that I read it, I guess my post was pretty out of place, but I still believe that my post is reasonable.

Even being Jelena fan I tend to agree that her points are strongly backed up by hard work. But by achieving #6 (her career high) is SOMETHING one or other way. Why people tend to underestimate commitment part of her points. It is just she compensates her game negative aspects with hard work. And that deserves at least some credit I think.

Yeah Jelena's one of the hardest working gals on the tour...and for those who say shes living off a huge number of tournaments who says she wouldnt have done well on a smaller,concentarted schedule where she'd be restedand fresh for her matches?

whilst most of you bring a lot of pessimissm in to your anti-dokic analysis as a jelena fan id like to look on this with optimism and that fewer tourneys= better quality...perhaps if jelena only played 17 tournaments she may have picked the ones she did well in and her rank would still be where it is? no one knows!

anyway its jelenas second time this year to reach number 6, she also did it a few months ago...shes no flash in the pan shes here to stay! Theres also nothing wrong with you thinking Daniella's better but to assert she should be ranked higher than Jelena is absurd for the time being...itd be OK if Daniella had quite a few more tournament wins to her name in her best 17 events(jelena has 5) but saying that now is unjusitified

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Justine, Daniela, or maybe Amelie are better than Jelena. And of course, Martina and Lindsay.

Venus, THE QUEEN
Serena THE WARRIOR
Miss you Monica Wynne Angie Anna Chakvy Marion Li Na
Good luck: Svetlana Simona

Well, I'll agree that Hingis and Davenport are better than Jelena but Henin, Clijsters, Mauresmo, Hantuchova are all debatable.

Jelena beat Henin and Mauresmo in their last meetings, and she has beaten Kim and if she wasn't injured in Hamburg, who knows what could have happened there. Hantuchova's game doesn't match Jelena, does that mean she's better? Well that's debatable, I for one would say that the same applies to Anne Kremer who I don't think is better than Jelena.
