I could care less about her ranking - I just want her to start winning slams again. Rankings are overrated anyway

Re: Welcome back to the top 10 Ma$ha!

Well done, Masha. Keep on climbing.

On a sad note, observing current ##3-5 hurt my eyes. Would love Sharapova in top 3, with Janka Aza following, and something must desperately be done to get rid of some flukes in current top 5.

I know your just a troll, but im boreeeeeed.

Vera is one of the most underrated player on here. Easily deserved of #3 spot.
Fran > Azarenka
JJ could be in top 5, instead of sam but the rankings dont lie, you should know

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.

Re: Welcome back to the top 10 Ma$ha!

Wow, it seems an eternity since Maria seemed to be the big new thing. 7 years this year since the Wimbledon win. So many (including commentators and retired players like Seles) said she was going to be the new dominant player. 3 slams is not inconsiderable but I myself thought she would have surpassed the likes of Hingis, Henin and Seles. It just goes to show - with the WTA you can never predict.

It would be great to have Maria back as a major contender - more the merrier. But the jury must be out at the moment. Anyway, a climb in the rankings is the right direction so good luck to her.

On a separate note, agree with others who say Vera is underrated. There is a slam in there I'm sure!

I'd say overrated. Never understood why the player of fairly mediocre abilities has so many fans. Neither she's good looking so that at least somehow justify huge fans brigade. Mystery to me.
I like Schiava but she's typical example of what they call fluke. I have no worries Roland Garros will fix this little bug in the rankings. Aza is the future, apparently not as bright as her BFFs but still possibly good.
Rankings never lie, agree. That's why I'm not completely satisfied with the true state of facts that rankings showing atm.

Re: Welcome back to the top 10 Ma$ha!

3x 4th and 1x 3rd round in the GSs, 1 MM title in Strassbourg on clay and 3 finals (Birminham, Stanford and Cincinnati, that's what got her there

strange that thats enough to get to a top 10 but then again looking at who is at 11-20 not that strange

Re: Welcome back to the top 10 Ma$ha!

The best thing with this news ?
She got only 5 points to defend until Madrid.
As we know she is playing Charleston, Rome and Madrid. This is quite promising.
Hope she'll be back in Strasbourg to keep her title. I think she won't, though...

Care to enlighten what are you laughing at?

That fact you are so happy about shows that tennis, as all-year sport, has great rankings system, that properly filters out players with only some random final appearances from people who really worked all year, worked on the same top level, won most matches than anyone etc...
