Welcome to the top 20 Alona Bondarenko!

If the ranking thread is correct in the challenger section, then alona bondarenko has cracked the top 20 for the 1st time in her career at 23!
she will be at least #20 come monday as long as razzano dosen't win the event and higher depending on her results and others.

i just want to say well done to her as shes worked her way up the rankings and made the most of her tennis.

keep it up alona!

Re: Welcome to the top 20 Alona Bondarenko!

Not to jinx her, but what if Mauresmo goes further than Bondarenko in the tournament? Wouldnt Alona be out of the top 20?

no because the points alona has amassed so far put her at #19 momo can overtake her if she goes futher than alona thus putting alona down to #20 (this will push petrova out of the top 20).

the only way alona can not be top 20 is by her losing her qtr final, momo making the semis and razzano beating momo in the semis and evantualy winning the whole thing.

Re: Welcome to the top 20 Alona Bondarenko!

She truly deserves this and I'm sure she can go far in the future,

Alona gave Maria a tough test in IW, and now that we're on clay, let's see if Alona can take her out this time.

Good luck to her and I can't wait to see her tomorrow!!

Re: Welcome to the top 20 Alona Bondarenko!

Welcome and good bye in some weeks.

Well, maybe she stay longer in Top20, but she isn't more than a (rank)15-25 player for me.

Congratulations


It won't be for long though unless she comes up with some spectacular results here or in Charleston. Her Warsaw finalist points are coming off in few weeks...

Re: Welcome to the top 20 Alona Bondarenko!

She's got a good game, real strong hitter. I said at Wimbledon last year why isn't she ranked higher than she was. This ranking is about right and if she improves her consistency she could make top 15.

Re: Welcome to the top 20 Alona Bondarenko!

It must be particularly satisfying for Alona, and possibly something of a relief as well, in that Alona has spent 15 weeks over the past 7 and half months just on the edge of the top 20 at number 21. To have been so close without going over the line for so long must have been quite fustrating I would imagine. I am happy for Alona the wait is finally over.
