Re: History Books Report: Current #1,#2,TOP10… in terms of ages, looks & nationality
Next "historical" achivment depending on Vera Zonareva. For Vera will be probably enough to reach QF in Eastbourne to replace Daniela Hantuchova from Slovakia in TOP10 next week (Bartoli also have some chances) which means that only three countries (Russia, Serbia and USA) will have TOP10 players during this Wimbledon. Same thing is close to happen at 1st half of 2005 (for Russia, USA and France) after big injury problems of two Belgian stars, but Alicia Molik reach TOP10 just when she need to prevent that (between AO/05 and Wimby/05). If this "3 countries own TOP10" happen it will be for first time in WTA history.
I have mistake here... Zvonareva needs actualy SF (not QF) to overtake Hantuchova. For this calculations i cut-off dani Rosmalen SF from last year but forget to add her next "17th best" result (that is reason for mistake). So i will edit now OP.
BTW all which i notice about Ana#1 and Maria#2, Ana#2 and Maria#1, and Ana#1 and Jelena#2 now is officialy part of WTA history!
and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is
AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
