Top 10 players head-to-heads

Note:
I didn't use the full head-to-heads like "7-5" but I used +2 and -2 instead. I know that this might be a bit misleading but if we want to compare them all by adding their "scores" this is inevitable.


So all in all:
  1. Serena Williams
  2. Venus Williams
  3. Svetlana Kuznetsova
  4. Jelena Jankovic
  5. Dinara Safina
  6. Na Li
  7. Agnieszka Radwanska
  8. Elena Dementieva
  9. Caroline Wozniacki
  10. Victoria Azarenka

Re: Top 10 players head-to-heads

I don't think this tells a lot. Many of the young players, such as Azarenka, Wozniacki and Radwanska, have to play the others while they are ranked highly and at the top of their game. Therefore the youngsters have a negative H2H when they make it to the top 10.

For example, Azarenka lost to Kuznetsova 3 times while being outside top 10, but once she entered, the H2H is 1-1. I think that's more telling

Re: Top 10 players head-to-heads

JJ's is pretty good It'd probably be worse though if she could actually make it far enough to play a top 10 player

Nice to see that Wozniacki-Radwanska-Azarenka are 0-0-0 each other

Re: Top 10 players head-to-heads

Venus needs to beat that Li. Then she'd be + or 0 over all relevant players.

Serena.

Shame that Vika is last, but she has had to play much more top players than the woman above her.

Re: Top 10 players head-to-heads

I just realized only 3 of the current top 10 are slam champions.
Justine and Kim need to get back up there asap, I miss the days when half or more of the top 10 had slams.

Anyway, congrats to Serena and Venus, though not surprised at all.
BTW, trying to think of players Serena has a losing H2H?
A few records against other champions(all winning):
10-4 vs. Davenport
10-7 vs. Capriati
7-6 vs. Hingis
7-6 vs Henin
7-2 vs Clijsters

Venus Ana Caro Sloane
Timea Aga Masha Bencic Keys Nicole Dani
Sania Vika Petko Simona Broady Robi CiCi Mladenovic Garcia JJ Errani Duval


Martina Hingis Forever!!!

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.
