She is inconsistent and usually doesn't do well on clay and grass.

I remmember watching her against Henin in Miami 2007, at it was an amazing performance, she hits so well, she was in one of those days. She is very inconsistet.
Also another thing from Razzano is that she lookslike a school teacher rather than a tennis player, she is very underrated in general.

Because just like that at the end of the first set, she doesn't win the critical points. Case closed.

She is like the little girl in the nursery rhyme. When she is good, she is very, very good, but when she is bad she is awful.

She's a very sensitive girl. But she is currently facing to her boyfriend medical problem. That's why she was in Australia with her mother and not with her boyfriend. And one of the reason why she's fighting so much can partly be explained by her boyfriend's medical problem. And that's why she's crying after each ties.

One set of good tennis does not a "why isn't this player higher ranked" make? Venus in full control of the match now. Razzano clearly was doing more than she is used to in the first set and still lost. Hell, it gave her a back injury. Now she's really dropped in the second, and Venus is having none of the Tokyo final result!!

I agree, Razzano is not that consistent in her tournament play. I won't be surprised if she loses during the first round on her next tournament.

It's not just one set. Razzano has been playing well all week. It's not often a player of her ranking gets to such a big final like Dubai. So yes, a thread like this is deserved.

I think we've seen that Razzano is capable of upsetting top players or at least pushing them alot. Her game is lovely to watch when it's on. But like Sam Smith once said, Razzano is the type of player who needs all the conditions to be perfect. She won't play well when it's really windy or rainy. So it's understandable that with her style of play, she finds it difficult to perform well every week.

Now, seriously, Razzano's getting a higher rank by next week, thanks to her impressive performance this week. :)

In several matches I saw she produced two-three games where she seemed to be an excellent player and in the rest of the match sinking to the level where she had been most of the time. This tournament has been a rare exception to this usual pattern of her aggressive but high risk game.

I think there are a lot of the players in the top 50 who are talented but inconsistent. They manage to have a good run but the real question is keeping their form going. What was Bartoli ranked when she beat Henin at Wimbledon? Or Radwanska when she beat Sharapova at the USO?

Razzano deserves a lot of praise for not just one good match, but a week of them. I've enjoyed watching her play a lot and really hope to see her move up the rankings.

Perhaps it's been all in Razzano's head why she hasn't performed until probably the past few years. But I think it's exciting she is getting results regardless of whatever is going on with her.

She may get to the top ten yet before we all blink.....

I still remember when she beat Hingis at the 2006 US Open. She was playing OUT OF HER MIND, I was so pissed! :mad:

that's not really the reason why she's inconsistent. She doesn't lose a lot of close matches to top players. She generally beats them or loses horribly. She simply plays a low percentage game. When she's in a rich vein on form she is very dangerous, when she's a bit off she beats herself.

didn't she beat Kuznetsova or someone similar at Wimbledon a few years ago?

dunno... but her match against jarka at the AO this year was horrid... both players played pretty badly and i didnt notice any real weapons from virginie...

obviously that was a bad day for her though, she can obviously play extremely well... shame she cant do it more often.

Simply put she is not consistent, just to prove, she went out in Paris tounament week before last in the first round then reaches finals of Dubai.

Because she is a pro tennis player who has all the tools, but will never find the right nail to hammer into the wall. In sports you have the talented ones, then you have the champions.
It's like starring in a play on broadway. U HAVE to deliver your lines to the audience all the time in a consistent manner. If you can't nail your lines, then you won't be on the stage for very long. Just a back drop player. Like Razzano.

She impressed me when she beat Hingis in 2006.....she really hit her off the court.

TennisViewer531

It all boils down to confidence. Right now, Razzano's happy she made it that far in Dubai so she now knows she can beat higher-ranked players. She might get decent finishes in upcoming tournaments, or maybe win a Tier III or II title.

Yeah likewise. I remember Hingis was in good form then as well - she'd made the final of the Canadian Open (beating Hantuchova, Kuznetsova and Chakvetadze)....I thought beating Razzano would be fairly routine.......but the score ended up 6-2 6-4 or something with Razzano winning - she was really impressive....
It annoyed me at the time that she didn't back that match up and go further at the U.S Open but then she had a great win over Venus in 2007 to win Seoul I think?? I think she can beat most players but just can't do it consistently.....very very unpredictable.

Because the

Players above her ranking has (either):

played more
went to the latter stages more
won more
better than her
has more points

I think she's one of those players who plays their best against top players but often folds when faced with lower-ranked ones. She's the type of player who will beat the top seed in round one and lose to a qualifier in round 2. As soon as her ranking gets into the top 30 and she gets seeded, she goes into a slump and goes right back down. She managed to lose twice last year to Evgeniya Rodina, who has been unable to hold down a place in the top 100.

Absolutely, and if I remember rightly Virginie had done nothing all year in 2006 upto that match. If she's ever played a better match than that day I will be surprised, she completely crushed Martina that day. Hingis was a bit flat in that match, but Razzano played brilliantly until a small mini choke near the end, but was too far ahead and in control to lose the match at that point. Was a more impressive display than her performance against Zvonareva at Dubai.

Razzano is simply streaky, she has the weapons and the game to cause big upsets, but she never has had the consisent game, and will be unlikely to ever do this on a repeated timescale. She was thrashed in the 1st round of the tournament before Dubai, and that kinda sums her up. Don't be surprised if she pulls another tournament like Dubai off again this year, but certainly don't be surprised if her results just after last week are less than impressive at 1st.

She finished 2007 in TOP30, but 2008 is big disappointment season for her, so that's why she is so low ranked. But with fantastic start of 2009 (#6 in YEC race after 2 opening months) even with average results in rest of season she will have probably her debut in TOP20 sometime this year!
