Schiavone being a safe top 10 for another year feels weird

Don't get me wrong, she deserves to win RG and it's not one of those hate threads. But because GS point are so important nowadays it feels weird. There recently was a surprise GS winner and suddenly she's supposed to be a top 6 contender in every tournament that she enters for another 12 months Like every top 4 will hope that they will draw her in quarters. Radwanska in top ten is so weird also. On the other hand you have Henin and Sharapova outside of top 15. Something must be fixed about the rankings. I know, Serena gets most of her points in GS performances and is the one to benefit most of the rankings system so you you might say that my thread is irrelevant. But still, today's rankings doesn't seem...right.

Re: Schiavone being a safe top 10 for another year feels weird

No. Feels great. Actually, she just won RG, but I don't see how it guarantees she'll be safe top ten the whole year. Some favorable seedings will be a nice treat for her.

You want to fix the ratings so that the ones you think should be in the top ten are there? Why not let the season play out, see what happens?

Re: Schiavone being a safe top 10 for another year feels weird

Nothing fails (except for your threads), you do realize that Henin hasn't even played six months on the Tour? And maybe Sharapova would be ranked higher if she could get past the 3rd round of a Major.

You are so right! Making rankings based on star power rather than results, brilliant! They need to change it!

This is not about not liking them. I don't "hate" either Schiavone or Radwanska. Or Wozniacki for that matter. But they don't belong to where they stand right now. Wozniacki seeded 3 at Wimbledon ? Give me a break. She somehow clawed her way to quarters at RG. As for Henin...well I hate her, for reasons on my own. But no one can't deny that she doesn't belong in top 10 seeds at Wimbledon.

No star power is stupid. It should be based on the shininess of their hair.

Re: Schiavone being a safe top 10 for another year feels weird

What a ridiclous argument, if winning a slam was evrything, Kim would be squarely in the top 10. She has the USO and miami and is still barely a top 10. Schiavne in no.6 means she has some good results to back thhe slam points.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Schiavone, Radwanska and Wozniacki earned their rankings on the court, just like everybody else. They belong exactly where they are.

Re: Schiavone being a safe top 10 for another year feels weird

Henin and Clijsters will claw their way up to top 10, don't worry about it. This is only temporary.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru

Because she is denying Ivanova her rightful place in the Top 10. What a bitch!
