A review of 2005 + a place to chat during the offseason.

Our tania might not have had as good a year as we expected but she did improve her ranking, make another final, and had a great tournament at charleston.

2002- 375
2003- 345
2004- 27
2005- 24

so the pattern is little impovement, big improvement, little improvement. i guess next year is gonna be really fun.

♥ Number ONE in my heart ♥
2004-2006 MYSKINA
2006-2011 JANKOVIC
2011- KVITOVA???


Honorable Mention: GOLOVIN, SAFAROVA, CIRSTEA

well lets add younger players Tati beat this year, she had so much trouble with them (still sorta does):

Safina 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 Gold Cost
Safina 6-4, 6-7(10) 6-3 Antwerp
Chakvetadze 6-4, 7-6(3) Birmingham
Sprem 6-4, 6-4 Canada
Mirza 6-2, 6-4 Japan
Karatantcheva 6-4, 7-6(2) Linz

and remember how hard Tati fought this year againt Ivanovic at the Swisscom and in the first round of the US Open saving match points. well done Tati, im already excited about next year. there are lots of chances to gain alot of points.

i could have added Angela Haynes to the list, but i didnt because i dont think she will be that good and is just hyped by the USTA. Tati beat her 6-0, 6-7(8), 6-3 at the Nasdaq though.

i was at that match and the guys behind me were complete dumbasses.

big idiot: yeah angela's one of the youngsters like 15 or 16. lots of promise

idiot's friend: what about the other one? she seems good.

big idiot: o her. she's been around a long time. shes probably around 27. nothing special.

that's an interesting stat about the top 20 wins. she probably would have had a couple more good wins if she didn't get hurt and then started losing in the early rounds after she got back. at least her ranking still went up after all that and she ended the season on a decent note.

as for next year, i think it'll be interesting. Mush had a good post about it in the philly thread. with the presence of a coach, we might see whether she's basically a top 25 player or can still move up the rankings. and she better start finding a way to beat vaidisova, ivanovic, and the likes soon or her ranking won't be going up.

some people

Just because she has a house in Miami doesn't mean they should list it as her hometown. I regard it as Paris.

TATIANA GOLOVIN

All the best to: Serena , Nicole, Ana, any other young players.
And all the Brits.

Thanks, whatever she'll have to improve her game and her ranking if she wants to play fed cup, with the two other french woman who makes the final of the YEC.
But let's hope these "competition" with Pierce and Mauresmo will help her to improve and to be more motivated.
