Azarenka: Top 4 without a slam SF!

The ascent of Azarenka to top 5 this week adds another blunder to the already defiled WTA ranking.


-----
Update:
She is now No.4 and the prospect of reaching RG SF is slim after her latest injury. If Vera falls in the rankings these coming months, she will be No. 3.

WTA

Magdalena Maleeva was top 5 in 1996 without even a grandslam quarter-final...so this is nothing new

Re: Azarenka: Top 5 without a slam SF!

Always just about slams...like they are the only tournaments in WTA...

Then there are players who have slam final or GS title and people talk about that they doesn´t deserve TOP 5 spot (Schiavone and Stosur)...a mess

mugs are endless, timeless and always nostalgicly loved.

maleeva was a very good player, and you are spot on because i'd give her an azarenka-ish level nowadays

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Re: Azarenka: Top 5 without a slam SF!

Players can make fluke grandslam runs. Vika's 2 Miami's pretty much cast a shadow on anything Chakvetadze has ever won.

Agree. Furthemore Chakvetadze had an easy road to her US Open SF with Paszek and Peer compared to Vika, who got Serena twice in QFs and in-form Clay-Safina in another.

Re: Azarenka: Top 5 without a slam SF!

Chakvetadze was much more consistent than Vika when she was top 5.
Then when she got there, consistency went away.
Anna & Vika were doubles partners in 2007.

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
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Not really. She reached the QF at the USO 1992 while she was still a junior but that was it. She never reached that stage again eventhough she got as far as #4 in the WTA rankings

Well I actually don't think so. Chakvetadze was probably a Top 5 player from Moscow 2006 till US Open 2007, afterwards she played shitty apart from Paris GDF in 2008. Vika is threat for Top Players since the beginning of 2009 and her title collection is better than Chaky's.

Anna won Cincinnati/Stanford back to back without even facing a top 10 player. Her USO run wasn't even that impressive and the SF match that occured was shameful. Plus she had a poor record against the top 10 players that year. She was just capitalizing on scrubs.

And here you are, a black unicorn.

Chakvetadze's 2007 season pretty much casts a shadow over anything Victoria has ever achieved I also think Chakvetadze is by far the better player, regardless of where she is ranked now.

I would hardly call any route to your first Grand Slam SF and easy one


Paszek & Chakvetadze & Vaidisova & Sharapova & Pavlyuchenkova & Vekic.
