Tamarine Tanasugarn's Wimbledon record

As most of you know, Tamarine holds the distinct achievement of reaching (and losing in) the 4th round of Wimbledon for 5 consecutive years.

1998: Martina
1999: Mirjana
2000: Serena
2001: Nathalie
2002: Monica


This year she will likely be again seeded in the 16-32 range meaning the earliest she could draw a top seed in the 3rd round. She's never reached a Grand Slam QF before. IMO it is unlikely that it will happen again, it's unlikely that someone loses in the 4th round for 6 consecutive years. But who knows? She'll lose before the 4th or I may be proven wrong and it happens again. Oh yes, there's one other possibility

Is Tamarine 4 straigh 4th round appearance better than Kournikova 1 semi and 1 4th round?

I don't think so but..

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

If Tammy doesn't reach the fourth round and then lose, the stars will fall out of the sky, dr. phil will have credibility as a therapist, and the Israelis and the Palestinians will make nice.

Tammy has been blessed by the Wimbledon gods with good draws every year - especially back when there were only 16 seeds.

For her sake, I hope she makes it Her and Wimbledon 4th rounds are a staple

hey, she hasn't always had good draws. In 2001, she upset Mauresmo in the 3rd round.

but I agree, things just seem to go her way there.

untrue! she did make two QFs that year.

Besides, for Tammy, that was a massive, massive victory. I think it might've been the best of her career.

What was AM ranked then? I know she was top 10....she won all those clay court matches.

I remember in Doha 01, Tami had a set-point on Hingis. I bet that was the best set of her life.

I'll say she loses in the 3rd round... so she copies her '97 Wimby performance.

Tammy took a set from Jen last year ...

I remember that Hingis match. Didn't she have three setpoints? Leading 6-3 in the tiebreak, I think? I could be wrong ...

I remember it was the 2nd set tiebreak and I was pissed and kept thinking "What if...."

I remember reading an article saying it was at 6-5 in the TB but it could have been more.

LA, I think? 6-3 6-7 6-2, jen won. Or maybe it was 6-3 6-7 6-4.

Wasn't that Hingis-tammy match 7-6 6-1?

It was LA, and the first score is right.

Hingis won 7-6, 6-1 also

I had to check, but your memory is good enough for you
