10 reasons why it's good for tennis to have Pennetta in the top10

  1. She's 27, not another youngster with a big breakthrough and a high risk of an equally big burnout
  2. She got there through consistent hardwork and selfbelief; that should give hope to a lot of players
  3. She's one of very few players to talk openly about seeing a sports psychologist and how much he has helped her - don't you wish your fave would see one too?
  4. She's a down-to-earth and nice girl, who is always friendly. She gets along with everyone and will always credit her opponent when due
  5. She has a very realistic view of herself, saying things as "Mentally I am a bit up and down" or "I think I never play like very very good tennis. Most of the matches I just fight a lot and just try to stay there"
  6. She's not from Eastern Europe. No offense, but worldwide it's not very interesting if all the top players are from one region (offtopic: I wish we had more topplayers from other continents as well)
  7. She's stepping up her level of play to the occasion, instead of falling apart at an important stage of her career
  8. She's a fighter; she fought back from injuries, personal problems, a ranking of 92 and near-retirement
  9. She's got a textbook technique which is an absolute joy to watch
  10. She's my fave

I may not dare to show you
I might just walk away or crawl under another rock
It's so tempting

I would also add: she doesn't play a strictly power game, but instead actually THINKS on court.

She has a brain and natural talent unlike World Number One with her rigid restricted game of power.

But was trying to list other reasons

Can't believe I didn't mention her non-hardhitting and non-brainless game

"Forza!" sounds better than "Ajde!"

/well, maybe


"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009
