Judging by Makarova´s results against Wozniacki this year she is dead.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 25 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 25 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

Re: Do you get why Lepchenko is almost Top 20??

The A-List has been winning everything and raking up every single ranking point while the B-List has been injured for half the season.
That leaves tons of opportunities for any hard-working journeyman.

The WTA will probably be like the ATP with a very strong top 4-5 and with Li, Kerber, etc. playing the roles of Tsonga, Berdych and Ferrer.

Re: Do you get why Lepchenko is almost Top 20??

She's not talented enough to deserve to be in the top 20 but, she had some rough times so congratulations

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

She played solid, came through a lot of qualifying tournaments. But still - I can't believe she's # 21!!

Her best results:


3rd Doha
QF Memphis
QF Madrid
4th French-Open
3rd Wimbledon

QF San Diego
3rd US-Open

Why is this enough for Top 20??
Those are fairly decent points.
And probably some in top20 have worse slam results.

She's definitely top 40 but certainly not top 20 material.
Basically that would make ZERO difference. All of them in that region (outside top15) have the same kind of points. If someone has considerably better results, that player is ranked higher even under current system.

Good for Vivara.

Everyone knows she's not going to stay there long (and if she does, good for her). So let her enjoy it while she can.

Vulturing of course. It helps when draws are falling around you quicker than Paris Hilton's pants.

Re: Do you get why Lepchenko is almost Top 20??

Those who blame lucky draws... cough... you can be lucky a limited number of times. She's not always getting good draws.

I also don't think she'll be close to top-10 but I still think she may surprise us all once again!

She's consistently having nice results so who can blame her?

Congrats Garbińe on your first Slam !!!

Re: Do you get why Lepchenko is almost Top 20??

I think one of the WTA storylines for 2012 is lack of depth.

It seems like the top group has moved away from the field and every big final, AO, W, Olympics, USO, IW, Miami, Madrid, is the same 4 players.
Except Errani in the FO final.

Its almost what the ATP has, where you know who's going to play in every big final.

That makes some 3rd rounds at majors plus a few QFs into around #20

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

I can't believe she's almost top 20 and I've never seen her play

It just shows what consistency,allied to the occasional upset,can do for the ranking. Good for her!

Re: Do you get why Lepchenko is almost Top 20??

On another note, I totally didn't realize Varvara is only 26. I thought she was nearing 30. If she can continue this improvement, we could see five or so years of very solid results from Varvara . Granted she can back this up…

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković
