Why is Alisa Kleybanova not TOP 10?

The way she's played Kim, she should be.

Her style reminds me of Serena Williams (which is obviously the most effective style in this era).

It's just odd that someone with huge talent has not been able to achieve what she should've.

...you need to review the way the ranking system works, buddy. It's past year, not past week.

She will be at some part of her career, I'm sure of it.

Re: Why is Alisa Kleybanova not TOP 10?

She is taking pace off some of her shots & being more consistent.
I think both Alisa & Nastia have top 5 talent. Just a matter of time.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there

Re: Why is Alisa Kleybanova not TOP 10?

Whatever people thinking about it, It's not that easy to reach TOP10 for sure. But in Kleybanova case real question is why she never so far reach even TOP20?!? For that she arguable has enough talent and skills.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

She's an inconsistent ballbasher.

Re: Why is Alisa Kleybanova not TOP 10?

For someone not fit, Kleybanova moves very well and has strong three-set endurance. There's no doubt that she can be much fitter, but she's also fitter than she looks.

Cp6uja, I was disappointed she didn't crack the top 20 last year. Clay may not be her thing, but she has the game to be a major force at Wimbledon.

It's encouraging that she's carrying over her good play from the end of last year at least.
