Re: Worst Player in 2012 Year End 100?? Final!!!

Maria Teresa Torro Flor, cause she looks gross

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.

Alexandra Panova won a doubles title with Petra Cetkovska at Fes this year. I know this is singles, but just sayin'.

She hasn't won a single WTA main draw match

Peer
2012 TOP 100 Wins: 9
2012 WTA MD Wins: 15

Doi
2012 TOP 100 Wins: 5
2012 WTA MD Wins: 10

Panova
2012 TOP 100 Wins: 7

What kind of draw they had in WTA MD??
Especially Misaki, she herself was out of TOP100 until the very end of the year
and having super lucky draw so often!?

So? She came back from injury then had the long streak. Until she was off the clay. Still a pretty good year for her i'd say.

Re: Worst Player in 2012 Year End 100?? Final!!!

If Peer wins(loses) this it is a joke. She is clearly better than all 9 of these scrubs (bar Eleni maybe). I amongst others don't like her, but she is by no way the worst in the top 100.

Worst (overranked): Cadantu, Arruabarrena-Vecino
Not particularly good but deserve their rank: Doi, Czink, Panova, Torro-Flor, Minella
Definitely deserve their rank: Bratchikova
Daniilidou is not particularly good anymore but her ranking is justified.
Peer is head and shoulders clear, unfortunate that a few injuries have caused some shock losses. Causing her to be a contender for this.

R.I.P Bally

Thankyou for years of service to British tennis

Mostly agree
I believe Peer's votes are based on her Unpopularity...

If we are simply talking about WIN/LOSE thing, Peer shouldn't be on the list.
but I kinda sense, her play style or the attitude largely contributing to her unpopularity,
Since this is pro-tennis, popularity is one of the aspect we need to concern.

Do we wanna see her play paying money??
Above question maybe one of the key to be selected as worst player...

Going by those stats, it has to be Peer. I mean, I knew she had a bad year, but I didn't know it was THIS bad
