Lucky and unlucky players of WTA

Lucky:
Sharapova (always on the weaker side of draw)
Kuznetsova (winning titles by retirements and reaching a GS final without facing a top 20 player)
Ivanovic (again easy road to a Slam final)
Stevenson (reaching a Slam SF with that much talent)

Unlucky:
Henin & Serena (3rd Slam QF in a row for the world's best 2 players, fuck me)
Nadia (she always drew her nemesis Sharapova for QFs when she was at the top of her form)
Dementieva (she couldn't win a slam when lesser players Kuznetsova and Myskina did)
Schnyder (because she was born with no fighting spirit and wasted all that talent)

Re: Lucky and unlucky players of WTA

Kuznetsova DID BEAT TOP20 players to reach her grand slam finals :

US Open 2004 - she beat Petorva and Davenport

Roland Garros 2006 - she beat Schiavone, Safina and Vaidisova to get to the final.

No grand slam final is easy to get too

Ivanovic had to beat Chakavetadze, plus the world #2 and #3 to get to the final. Easy? I dont think so!

Re: Lucky and unlucky players of WTA

Lucky players:
Julia GOERGES (GER) - drew Henin in first round of US Open, practically a bye.
Kira NAGY (HUN) - drew Venus Williams in first round of US Open, also pretty much a certified win.

Unlucky players:
Angelique KERBER (GER) - suffered the stress of knowing she had to play Brie Whitehead in LA, the pressure of not losing a game must have been unbearable

Gisela DULKO (ARG) - drew Audra Cohen in Quarters in Forest Hills.

Marion Bartoli

Tennis player of the Millenium

Grand Slam Finalist | Career High Rank #9 | Queen of the Injury Time-Out

Venus | Dokic | Kirilenko | Robson

Re: Lucky and unlucky players of WTA

No one is that lucky or unlucky.

My Favourites: Dancevic, Hantuchova, Gasquet, Golovin, Roddick, Sharapova, Stepanek

Re: Lucky and unlucky players of WTA

Lucky = Anna Kournikova. If she wasn't beautiful no one would've cared that she never won a singles title nor would she be so rich.

Unlucky = Chanda Rubin. Injuries, injuries and more injuries.

I love you, Dean. I love you, Kiera.
