You're right--I had the same thought.

Change that to "Sadly, she hasn't even got close to that." There's still time...

Is there an end to your optimism? I really don't have any left in the tank when it comes to K-lina, not for big achievements anyway. And let's not forget that she's in a relationship - we've seen numerous times who craptastic she can play when she's in a relationship...as a nun she'd be a fantastic tennis player

Re: Karolina Sprem Cheering Thread!

Does anyone know why Karolina's ranking points don't add up? Her 16 best results equal 721 points, yet WTA (and TBE) only give her 708 points?

Re: Karolina Sprem Cheering Thread!

^^ Cause she did a "brilliant" job playing slams in Paris and New York, getting exactly 5 points from each, and those are mandatory i.e. count for 16 best results regardless of the amount of points. When you count it that way, it comes down to 708.

Sadly that's a very probable scenario.

Re: Karolina Sprem Cheering Thread!

I don't know anything either, and to make speculating even more complicated, the last four times she started the season playing four different tournaments.
