Olga Puchkova beat in 3 sets #843 ranked 15yo UK girl and overtake Steffi Graf!!

Her slump continues since she reach #32 two years ago, but her 3-setters record is still almost perfect!!?! Today in 1st round of Wimbledon/08 quallies she beat 15 year old GBR girl Tara Moore (WTA#843) 4-6 7-6(0) 6-4 and overtake Steffi at 2nd place of all time best 3-setters (if we count only players with atleast 20 3-setters wins).

Here is list of current TOP15 best 3-setters in WTA history (players with atleast 20 3-setters wins):
Code:
#  PLAYER            W/L  (%)
1. CHRIS EVERT USA           153-43 (78.06%)
2. OLGA PUCHKOVA RUS          22-7  (75.86%)
3. STEFFI GRAF GER           148-48 (75.51%)
4. MARIA SHARAPOVA RUS        68-26 (72.34%)

BTW... next to watch is Sorana Cirstea, Sesil Karantantcheva and Olga Govortsova but all three still dont have 20 wins (but have atleast 15 right now).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

All win-loss stats on wtatour.com are since they mess up real matches (WTA main draws) with WTA qualies, ITF and even ITF qualies.

7 of the Top 9 have been world no.1's, 8 have been Top 10. The only odd one out is Puchkova.

Or tanking one set when playing vs #300+ ranked opponents

It's good odds if she, her boyfriend or coach is gambler
