Iveta Benesova is the first ranked Czech player!

When was the last time that it wasn't Nicole!? Does anyone have a stat on this.

Iveta Benesova: 41
Petra Kvitova: 49
Nicole Vaidisova: 51

Nicole

Either way, congrats Iveta!

Vaidisova wouldn't realize something was wrong until she has a zero in her bank account.

Re: Iveta Benesova is the first ranked Czech player!



I am very glad someone started a thread on this actually. Iveta has worked very hard in the last year to pretty much rescue her career from a pretty low ebb a year ago. Lets not forget nine months ago Iveta was ranked down at 132 in the world. I know a lot of her fans myself included didn't have a whole lot of optimism that Iveta would be able to bounce back into the thick of the main tour. Quite honestly, I feared she was near retirement. I am so glad that Iveta proved my worst fears very much wide of the mark. These last nine months Iveta has consistently fought hard to get back into the top 50 and near the top 40. She deserves all her success. I, for one, would love to see Iveta's 2nd reign as Czech number one, almost four years since her 1st reign ended, be a very long one.

But I should add to the fans of the player she deposed, Nicole Vaidisova, that I hope Iveta's return to form can at least be an example that you never can tell what the future of tennis will hold. And just as Iveta showed how it is possible to escape the abyss of miserable form last year, there is no reason why Nicole can't do the same thing this year.

Amazing feet, Iveta!
Anyway, Benesova > Vaidisova, she's leading H2H 2-0.

Congrats, although I think this is temporary - Kvitova will be Czech #1 within few weeks.
