ED's Paris title is not a real Premier title!

She beat:
Pavlyuchenkova, no. 38
Petkovic, no. 49
Oudin, no. 53
Safarova, no. 46

No top 35 players

At New Haven, Caro beat 3 players with a higher ranking than no. 38 (including no. 10), while she in Eastbourne beat 4 players with a higher rank.

Following one of the many sources to the Caro hate here, mainly from ED fans, this means that Paris does not qualify as a Premier title :conf used:

Re: ED's Paris title is not a real Premier title!

It's a real premier title, just like Caro's titles at NH and Eastbourne

The level of play in Paris this week was terrific btw.

Re: ED's Paris title is not a real Premier title!

Unlike Wozniacki, Lena has proved she's capable to win tournaments with healthy draws as well. That's the difference between the real top-players and Pushniacki.

Re: ED's Paris title is not a real Premier title!

People can't accuse Caro of having a cakewalk draw, but Caro fans apparently have the right to accuse Dementieva of the same thing. Ridiculous.

Re: ED's Paris title is not a real Premier title!

And Lena beat nothing but Top 25 players in Sydney, a tougher road than Serena had to win the AO.

You can't control who shows up. All you can do is beat them, no matter who you are. And there are a lot of ED fans who like Caro.

For whatever reason, Caro haters come from all over.

Re: ED's Paris title is not a real Premier title!

im happy for elena but i hate that these players outside the top 35 push her around so easily, yeah she grinds them down in the end, but meh why does she let them jump the gun on her in rallies.
