Some of those on your list, Duchevina, Rolle and Bacsinkzy are indeed playing to a top 100 standard and the ranking will in time reflect that. Others like Laine and Sprem were recently in the top 100 but have rightly fallen out because they have not been playing to a top 100 standard. Basically the rankings reflect the cumulative standard of play for a 12 month period and they do it pretty well. Ofcourse if a player starts form inproves or gets worse it might take a little time for the rankings to fully reflect those changes but in the end players do find themselves ranked where they belong.

depends whether you mean players who DESERVE to be in the top 100 or players who should be there in terms of talent. everyone ranked in the top 100 deserves to be there because they've earned the ranking points. sure someone like sprem talent wise should be in the top 100, she's shown that at her best she can play at a very high standard. but does she deserve to be there currently? i'd say no because she hasn't earned the ranking points to be in the top 100. talent wise though, maybe she should be.

This thread is just as stupid as your "players who should not be in top 100" thread.

Why should these players be in the top 100 rather than the players who are in the top 100 due to better resutls than the players who you mentioned above?

Exactly.

But then of course one must be consistent and stop using current ranking as a yardstick to measure talent as I so often see.

See my post on the mirror thread:

Sprem shouldn't be in the top 100 until she learns how to keep her error count below her ranking. :p

Naomi Cavaday... but wait! She'll be in the top 100 by the end of the year! ;)

Caroline Wozniacki! Time and time again she has shown that she belongs in the top100! She has beaten so many top100 players - and played good matches against champions such as Venus and Martina!

It amazes me how you managed to pick so many names and miss Wozniacki.
