There are so many players that can play such a high quality tennis, and at some moments they can look like they don't even belong in top 100, so what do you think, who varies most from being so bad to being almost perfect?

Two more players come to my mind, Schnyder and Hantuchova, their performances can be so strange!

Daniela was more like this in 2004 and early 2005, but Wimbledon and on she was consistant.

Karolinas game is soo streaky. I wouldnt be surprised if she played in a match she lost 1-6 6-1 1-6

Well if it's really about how someone game can stretch from best to worse and vice versa...

i'll say Venus cause we all know what she did. thinkin about that...you won't think that she will lose to Sesi Karatancheva with that score (even 3setter :o )

Well, you can see the difference in mentality
and swager from Venus pre/post Wimbledon.

Her consistency is better and if her health
cooperates it's just gonna carry her higher.

Next time they play, Sesil will be facing
a different Venus.

i do agree, i can't wait til Sesil meet that different Venus. @RG if possible.
i'm really optimistic because after reaching that level of play with Wimbly, i think it was just the sign, the "let's go" missing.

I think Dementieva, but lately she is being more regular

Serena can be maddeningly erratic.

When Venus plays badly, she is too much defensive and not aggressive enough, then other players can dominate her, but rarely they beat her!!! So I don't think Venus varies the most!

I'm surprised no one mentioned Mary Pierce, one of the streakiest top players in history.

For me, it's Eleni -- I love her :hearts:, and she is so very talented, but I never know what to expect from her! :(

Alicia doesn't really belong in this group. She was getting consistently better and better until she got sick. Being sick is not the same as being "so bad". :sad:

Peng has had some fine wins, and shocking lossed in 2005.
Wouldn't say "perfect" or "so bad" in any case; I understand she fought hard on the losses.
But talking about inconsistent, she is a fit in 2005. :tape:
Hoping for great year 2006. I hope the stresses with TTA, coaching, raquet, schedule, and finances stay out of her game.

i said dementieva because for example, take the USOPEN 2004. She plays great, fights amazingly, and then when she gets to the final she loses in straight sets to svetlana kuznetsova (no offense to her but dementieva should've at least made it closer, cuz its not like sveta blew elena off the court).

It's prety obvious that Ana Ivanovic is player who belongs to this list! :shrug:

And none but a very few believed she'd
do what was to come only a few weeks later. :cool:

If I am not mistaken, I am pretty sure Kuznetsova had like double winners(as well as UEs) more than Dementieva hit, so I would say Dementieva was overpowered in that match. And Dementieva usually struggles when playing against powerful players.

For me it's Myskina.... she goes from winning Roland Garros in 2004 before losing in the early rounds of Wimby and US Open. Last year wasnt a very good year either for her, many slumping matches and out of nowhere she pushed a red hot Justine to a final set tiebreaker in Eastbourne. Then she goes on to almost lose in Stockholm to unknown players before going deep into tier I draw again... it's definately a rollercoaster ride for Myskina fans although currently the rollercoaster seems to be out of action.

For all the crap Elena takes about being inconsistent, she does have the longest run in the Top 10 of any active player, and if she falls out it will be due to injury, not because of poor play.

My vote goes to Nasty, who was a serious contender and slam winner in 2004 to falling off the map in 2005. I know she had some personal and injury problems, but her decline was rapid after looking like she was going to be a Top 10 fixture for a long time.

I love our dear, madding Nastya and would love to see her confound us all again with another super run.
