Vera Zvonareva is Headed Back to the Top 10!

Now that she's made the semifinals at Charleston, Vera will jump to at least 14 in the rankings.

Even more importantly, she has absolutely no points to defend until the US Open! If she keeps up the stellar pace she has set thus far this season, she should be back in the Top 10 very soon!

Keep up the good work, Vera!

Re: Vera Zvonareva is Headed Back to the Top 10!

She is Sooooo deserving of a spot in the top ten. I'm not at all a fan of hers, but I think she's got a great game and although she can sometimes be emotionally weak- I've always considered her a top 10 player. It always seemed weird to me that he ranking was so low for so long- but she was always getting injured so that's probably why.

Good to have her where she belongs- I hope she bumps Bartoli out- if Bartoli is still in the top 10.

She deserves it! She clearly has been one of the best this year.

She can replace Chakvetadze and Davenport can replace Hantuchova and all will be good with the world!

Re: Vera Zvonareva is Headed Back to the Top 10!

Yeah she has been doing very well lately. Her win against JJ this week is very commendable because JJ has been playing very well this season. Hope she plays well against Lena today. It would be interesting if Vera got to the final. I'd like to see how she went against Serena. Although it would also be interesting to see how Lena would go against Serena considering Lena won their last meeting in Moscow.

Anyways, nice work Vera. Keep it up

Zvonareva's non-mandatory tournaments points counted towards her rankings:
Doha – 325
Charleston – 195+
Luxembourg – 125
Indian Wells – 115
Moscow – 110
Hobart – 80
Bangalore – 70
Quebec - 65
Zurich – 60
Auckland – 30
Portoroz – 30

She can play 3 "free of deductions" tournaments -- two GS (RG+Wim) and one non-mandatory event. Points she gains at all other events will replace points from aforementioned tournaments.

Hobart to Portoroz there are not big numbers. If she keeps making QF and SF at TI/II events, those will be fairly easily replaced.

If you take out Chakvetadze, add in Zvonareva, and bump a Serbian for Davenport and Kuz for Amelie, this top ten would be perfect.

Tier II semis = 125 points, Tier I quarters = 110 points. She won't gain enough points by just being consistent. Though with Chakvetadze slumping she's definitely got a chance.

With draws she gets it's not that hard to do.

I agree she has had some easy draws this season, but she has done well to take advantage of them. Several players at the end of last season had so many easy draws but couldn't take advantage. This Charleston draw hasn't been a cakedraw though. She has done well. So good on Vera.

Good to see. I like Veras game. If she was little bit more stable she could probably go even higher.
