Why are this tragic news??? Belgian #4 would beat her??? I don't think that she would lose to Caroline Maes....Meilen played a great event in Memphis with year and had a hard fight in SF with Shahar Peer....

would the Irish #4 beat her? Would the Israeli #4 beat her, would the Canadian #4 beat her?

The only nations that would have #4 players better than ours would probably be Russia (they have like 35 in the top 50), that's it. And our #1 and 2 (if it's Venus :lol: ) are good enough to take on ANY ONE!

Meilen Tu deserves the spot. She has had a nice year so far. Made the SF of Memphis beating defending champ Arviddson on the way and played well enough against Shahar Peer.

Meilen :rocker:

Besides Meilen has been in the TOP 50 before. It's not like this is new to her either.

Meilen's a solid player, no need to insult her :) She's worked her way back up the rankings through good play at WTA events, qualifying, and winning main draw matches. It's not like she's won half a dozen 25k challengers, she'd done it the hard way and deserves respect for that. She's not new to the top 50, she's been there before, and fans like myself are pleased to see her form back to what she is capable of producing :) Maybe if the other Americans worked as hard as Meilen, they'd move up too. She's fit, fast, improved on her abilities at the net, and she deserves every bit of success. A lot of players would love to have some of Meilen's achievements :D

I don't even know who the British no 4 is! At least I've heard of Tu!

I think it's scarier that Shaughnessy is America's #3 player. She's been in a slump lately.

I'm more upset with the fact that MJ or Pam or someone said Meilin was engaged to Zvonareva's coach. That's just wrong. :tape:

That's not important anyway, it's when you pit the #17s against each other that you get true depth!

The big news at the AO was there was no seeded american since forever, we saw how one american turned that statement on it's head.

It's definitely better than when Shaughnessy was the American #1.

Well Jennifer has been forced out by injury. Lindsay is pregnant and the Williams sisters have had their share of injuries and are obviously on their way back. The Williams sisters should be back in the top ten this year. They will at least win more slams. The first slam of the year belongs to an American obviously.

When I think about Meilen ,another american player comes to my head. I don't know why.
It gives me the sensation that I know Meilen since 1995.
So I always think that Meilen has to have at least 35 years. :lol:
