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.
