Re: Welcome to the top 20 Makarova

Nothing wrong with Safarova being in the top 20 and Kanepi and Vinci being in the top 15

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.

Re: Welcome to the top 20 Makarova

Wow, I didn't think she was that close. Same with Lepchenko. Last time I checked they were in the 30s!

Congrats. When she's on, she's a pleasure to watch

No need to hate on Errani here. A player is as good as her results and she's certainly had great results this year. (though I personally don't like watching her)

Congrats to Katya for breaking to top 20, if ever so sneakily.

Re: Welcome to the top 20 Makarova

Most of the top players entering 17-20 are undeserving really but not completely. I think the reason for this are Clijsters retiring, Kuznetsova, Pennetta, Hantuchova, and Petkovic injuries. Hantuchova was in the top 20 then she got injured when she had a lot to defend. The saddest thing here is Zvonareva, she is playing while injured, and has suffered massively with this top 10 ruling of premier events she already has 5 0-pointers with Tokyo and China not included, so that will be 7 of her 16 countable points as 0. This is the most stupid ruling in WTA. Though she hasn't really played a lot, if she bounces back next year it will take time for her to get to the top 20 as she has a lot of 0-pointers to wait to be taken off.
