Unhappy the forever farewell to top10 thread

with todays loss Flavia will be out of the top 10 at the end of Wimbly...Li has already passed her and Henin (and even Bartoli) are likely to pass her...
we all know the tons of points she won't defend this summer and even if she will it's impossible for her to do better so....yeah it's a bit negative, but next year she'll do a super job staying into top 20 with Safina and Kuzny surely getting back, some young girls improving their game and Masha getting back to top 20...
so sad

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: the forever farewell to top10 thread

Well it was a good run while it lasted for Flavia. I really feel that she missed out on a great opportunity to have a chance to stay in the top 12 during the clay court season. Hopefully she can return to the good play back on the hard courts.

Re: the forever farewell to top10 thread

I think her whole game is on a down hill. This season she looks a bit slower around the court than last year. She has attempted to improve her serve but that has lead to a low first server percentage allowing good players take advantage off her second serve. Her backhand is not has dangerous as it used to be. She may not get back into the top 10 again but she has great last few seasons. How many players boast a winning record against Venus Williams, a champion of the game of tennis. And how many people can say that they were once in the top 10 players of the world. How many people can say they were part of a team that won a trophy for their country twice. And her career is not over yet, she can still win another trophy for her country and spent the next few seasons in the top 20.

TBH, I really hoped she could make it again. She only needed to do better at the Mandatorys ... Still Madrid & Beijing left to try it this year

Re: the forever farewell to top10 thread



Can we rename this thread to "Farewell in Top 10 forever" ?

funny to read our low expectations 5 years ago, not even counting a Slam title. Yet we did quite well in keeping it up disguisedly.

Welcome, Flavia, to the "Great Champion" club

With her “Step out of the way, boys” strut and her intemperate mid-match gesticulating, this woman is a natural solo act.
