You are the worst poster ever. Coming off suspension and immediately posting rubbish.

Hantuchova won here twice, so no.

Re: is this the worst IW ever?

You have last year's winner, and the #6, and the best young player and the best 17 year old.
It's a decent mix, but it's trus that only Ana has won above a Tier III, and she's done little since RG
If Dinara was playing Vera, we'd have an important match, for the #1 spot

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: is this the worst IW ever?

It's been very entertaining if you like watching new talent break through! This is Azarenka and Zvonareva's chance to really show some mettle, AND we've seen Nastia Pavlyuchenkova (officially the hardest last name to spell; I have to look it up each time) exhibit why she's been talked about for the past three years.

The only disappointment in my mind is that Ivanovic has come through to the semifinals without looking much better than she did in Australia. I'd love to see her right the ship, but I doubt it will help her if she keeps on winning against the players she has no business getting that pushed by without having to up her game from its current mediocrity.

But there's always one quarter of every draw that's a little bit of a downer. Usually it's Kuznetsova's, but this week it Ivanovic's.

Re: is this the worst IW ever?

Imo a stupid question to ask. What, are you planning on listing all the Indian Wells tournaments in order from best to worst? It's a sad outlook to have.

I'm always surprised when I hear Zvonareva hasn't won a title above a Tier III. She's been around long enough as a top 10er that I keep thinking she has a Tier II in there somewhere, but no. Out of curiosity, who is the highest ranked player in history without a Tier II or higher title? With Zvonareva clocking in at #5 for her career high, she must be a contender, no?

Re: is this the worst IW ever?

Not really, I remember watching one quarterfinal some years ago Smashnova vs Gagliardi or something like that

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet

Don't know about "in history" but among those who have been top-10 since mid-1980s Katerina Maleeva (#6) springs to my mind.
