No. But they weren't going that great back when I made that list. It was in May sometime this year I think.

Peer has really picked it up in the second half of this year.

Oh! I'd forgotten all about Olga. I really loved watching her play back a few years ago.

Re: The Slumping Sisterhood

Okay, there's really no limit to the number of players we have in the Sisterhood. There may be some difference of opinion about whether a player is really in a slump or not, and what we define as being in a slump, so I'll post a list and everyone can add to it or say whether they think a player doesn't belong on a list of slumpers, or whatever they want.

Amelie Mauresmo
Anna Chakvetadze
Daniela Hantuchova
Lucie Safarova
Nicole Vaidisova
Karolina Sprem
Michaella Krajicek
Sesil Karatantcheva
Elena Bovina
Mirjana Lucic
Ana Ivanovic
Alexandra Stevenson
Kaia Kanepi
Olga Puchkova
Yan Zi
Maria Kirilenko
Sania Mirza

I'm not sure about a few of these. I don't really look at Hantuchova and Safarova and think they're in a slump, but they're both ranked way below their career best, so I guess they are.

Re: The Slumping Sisterhood

What about Zheng Jie, Agnes Szavay, Alize Cornet, Chan Yung-Jan, Marta Domachowska, Julia Vakulenko, Tamira Paszek, and Eleni Daniilidou?

I definitely think Szavay, Cornet, Chan, Domachowska, Vakulenko and Paszek belong, not sure about Zheng and Daniilidou though.

Re: The Slumping Sisterhood

I think Patty should make the list as well as her doubles partner

Dramabel's slumping too. However I don't think Chan should be on the list. Didn't she just win a $100k challenger?

Maybe add Klepac, Olivia Sanchez (although she's been having a few more decent results lately) and Muller (if she still exists).

Chan post USO results:

Guangzhou Int. QF (lt. red hot Peer)
Seoul Int. QF (bt. Pavlyuchenkova before lt. Groenefeld 06 62 57)
Tokyo 100k+h SF (bt. Date before lt. top seed/winner Coin)
Osaka Int. R2 (lt. runner-up Schiavone 36 60 36)
Taipei 100k+h W (bt. Tanasugarn and Morita)

Everything just got started. Actually she's on a great comback trail after mid-season injury.

Melbourne.

Re: The Slumping Sisterhood

You need to add Queen Bethanie (yes, another one of my faves ) who has simply vanished.

She's actually just getting ready for Jelena-like domination to end 2010 in style, but still.

Re: The Slumping Sisterhood

I wouldn't include Safarova, Mirza, Hantuchova, Kirilenko. They are just inconsistent, while Kanepi, Mattek-Sands, Chakvetadze, Vaidisova etc are consistently having bad results.
And Mauresmo floats around the top20, which is fine considering she has played the least tournaments in the top 100 (Clijsters and Sharapova didn't play full season).
