My comments:

Kirsten FLIPKENS:
Breakthrough year for Kirsten in 2009! She’s been pro for 6 years now and was considered as a real prodigy before her 18 birthday. Pressure and injuries stopped her progression. At 23 y.o, she seems to be mature enough to stem the rhythm of the pro tour. Last week she reached the QF as a qualifier at Luxembourg $220K ousting 3rd seed/n26 Medina Garrigues en route before losing in 3 sets to her in form compatriot 5th seed/n20 Wickmayer. As I said last week, there’s a real emulation between the Belgium player with rising players and 2 sensational come back Klijters and Henin.

Claire FEUERSTEIN: After breaking the Top 200 last week, Claire keeps rising in the world ranking. Last week, she made it to the SF at Saint Raphael $50K challenger ousting 4th seed/n129 Cohen Aloro and 8th seed/n143 Foretz before falling to another compatriot and eventual winner 6th seed/n138 Parmentier. Even if Claire can be really satisfied for that result, she might be frustrated as she failed to beat Parmentier despite 8 match points! However, she has to focus on her accomplishment this year rising from n372 to n184.








FASTER MOVEMENTS IN THE TOP 10, 20, 50, 100, 150 and 200:

Top 10:
Caroline WOZNIACKI n4 (+2) and Victoria AZARENKA n6 (+2):

The 2 youngest Top 10 are on the spotlight this week. Both of them are reaching a new career high.
This is more due to other players losing points from last year.
However, both of them achieved an impressive year.
Caroline’s highlights:
-3Titles at New Haven $600K, Eastbourne $600K, Ponte Vedra Beach $220K
-5 times Runner up at US Open $9,8M, Madrid $4,5M, Charleston $1,0M, Bastad $220K and Memphis $220K.
Victoria’s highlights:
-3 Titles at Miami $4,5M Brisbane $220K, Memphis $220K
-2 times Quarter finalist in Grand Slams at The French Open and Wimbledon
Of course both of them are qualified for the Year Ending Championship at Doha.


TOP 20:
Francesca SCHIAVONE n17 (+7):

Good end of season for Francesca. In mid-2009, she fall around n50 in the world. A Qf at Wimbledon boosted her confidence and she’s now back to the Top 20, 6 spots from her best ranking. Last week, she captured her career biggest title at Moscow $1,0M beating surprising n67 Govortsova in final.


TOP 50:
Shahar PEER n32 (+6) and Patty SCHNYDER n41 (+6):

In 2007, it was a dream coming true for Shahar who became the ever highest Israelite player.
This is another story this year as she fall around n70 struggling to find confidence in her game. However, she seems to be back in form. (winning 2 titles in September Guangzhou and Tashkent) She’s one of the biggest improvements in the Top 50 this week. Last week, she made it to the SF at Luxembourg $220K upsetting 8th seed/n34 Suarez Navarro and 4th seed/n23 Hantuchova before falling to 6th seed/n28 Lisicki (in a thrilling 3 setters 7/6 in the 3rd).
Concerning Patty, the situation is a bit different. She’ll celebrate her 31rst birthday in December and it’s starting to be hard to be at the Top all through year. With 11 titles on the tour and a best ranking at n7 and $8,0 millions of prize money, she can be very proud of her career. However, she’s up 6 spots this week after reaching the QF at Luxembourg $220K creating the biggest upset of the tournament in the 2nd rd beating 2nd seed/n18 Clijsters. Sadly, she wasn’t able to produce the same level the match after losing to 6th seed/n28 Lisicki.



TOP 100:
Tsvetana PIRONKOVA n99 (+27):

A year and a half ago, Tsvetana was breaking the Top 40 with strong ground strokes. The major issue in sport is to confirm after a breakthrough year. The good point is that she’s back in the Top 100 which means that she’s securing a direct entry in the Main Draw at the AO 2010. She’s up 27 places this week after reaching her 2nd QF of the year in the WTA Tour (after Hobart $220K) at Moscow $1,0M. In Moscow she had to qualify beating 5th seed/n100 Kudryatseva. In the Main Draw, she dispatched a high level of play upsetting Top seed/n7 Zvonareva before falling to n36 Alona Bondarenko.



TOP 150:
Evgeniya RODINA n108 (+19):

Reaching the 2nd rd as qualifier at Moscow $1,0M is also a good deal for Evgeniya. With this result, she could enter the A0 Main Draw. In the qualies she ousted 6th seed/n102 Rodionova. She kept playinsd strong tennis to perform her ever best victory over 6th seed/n22 Vesnina before losing to n27 Kleybanova.


TOP 200:
Claire FEUERSTEIN n174 (+26):
see above



THAT’S ALL GUYS! HOPE YOU’LL ENJOY READING MY THREAD AND WAITING FOR YOUR COMMENTS!

Yes Francesca had a pretty bas start of season with only 2 SF in $220K WTA Event...and far away from her level...she logically lost a lot of points and fall in the world ranking.

Wimbledon seems to be a turning point for her, reaching her ever 1rst QF in Grand Slam...she also won 1 WTA Title last week and finished 2 times Runner Up.

She's now back to n17 and should be liftes with Pennetta's success.

It wasn't her first ever GS QF but the 3rd (after FO and US)

Exactly. Fran has always been a very weird player to watch. She has pretty good strokes and a good serve and she's speedy around the court. She possesses some power and has good touch at the net and lots of variety in her game. I've always wondered why she never won as much as she could have. Much as I love Pennetta, I think Fran is the better player. I hope that at the ripe old age of 31 (right?) she makes it to the QF of the Australian (unless she meets a fave of mine) so she has a career QF at the slams! And I really hope she works her ass off and makes it to the top 10!
