Re: Simona's Top 20 wins

Sooner or later we have to keep track only to top 10 wins. The top 20 wins will become irrelevant.

As I said earlier, I hope this thread will become irrelevant soon, I mean when Simona losing a match will be considered a big upset.

Re: Simona's Top 20 wins

Come on people take it easy.
As long she is a top 20 player every win is important.
Even when she'll become a top 10 player they will still have their relevance.
Not as much as when she was ranked 40-50 but still.
There is not a big difference between #8 and #12 ranked player.

Just one thing to add.
Do you think she can play like this all the time.
Simona will have her bad periods too. Not as low as in the past off course. But this is sport there are ups and downs.
She will have to release some pressure from time to time.

See New Haven final when Petra took that bathroom pause. She thought that will have a bad effect on Simona's focus and this was a possibility. Marcu was there and prevented such a thing to happen. I was impressed about what he said during that time.
I think it actually helped Simona that long period of rest. She was getting tired form handling Kvitova's heavy shots.
Simona got a lot of winners but 1st she had to neutralize the hard balls by the Czech. Neutralize them but in an aggressive mode to get her move.

Watching the match again I think Simona played at a very high level.
Keeping that level is a hard task.
Come on Simona !

Amazing what a missing word does. I meant to say "Simona losing a match to a lower seeded player". Does that rephrasing sounds moderate enough for your liking?

Re: Simona's Top 20 wins

@ soimu : You should make this Thread with Top 10 wins Now as Simona will be ranked 14 after this weeks so top 20 is the past


Top 10 here she comes

Re: Simona's Top 20 wins

You know she's still gonna have to play against players ranked 11-20, right? Sometimes she will win those matches and sometimes she won't. And quite frankly a win against Stosur, who's ranked 19 can mean much more than a win against Kerber, who's ranked 10
