View Full Version : 10 reasons why it's good for tennis to have Pennetta in the top10

She's 27, not another youngster with a big breakthrough and a high risk of an equally big burnout
She got there through consistent hardwork and selfbelief; that should give hope to a lot of players
She's one of very few players to talk openly about seeing a sports psychologist and how much he has helped her - don't you wish your fave would see one too?
She's a down-to-earth and nice girl, who is always friendly. She gets along with everyone and will always credit her opponent when due
She has a very realistic view of herself, saying things as "Mentally I am a bit up and down" or "I think I never play like very very good tennis. Most of the matches I just fight a lot and just try to stay there"
She's not from Eastern Europe. No offense, but worldwide it's not very interesting if all the top players are from one region (offtopic: I wish we had more topplayers from other continents as well)
She's stepping up her level of play to the occasion, instead of falling apart at an important stage of her career
She's a fighter; she fought back from injuries, personal problems, a ranking of 92 and near-retirement
She's got a textbook technique which is an absolute joy to watch
She's my fave:angel:

I would also add: she doesn't play a strictly power game, but instead actually THINKS on court.

If you conisder this player forum material then EVERY bloody Serena thread (particularly Serena?) should be in there as well. Good riddance in my opinion but I don't moan about it.

Piss off and go play with yourself. :o

Anyways...Its good to see Flavia in the top 10 :D :drool:

best part is the egg it puts on the faces of the many on here who said she wasn't talented enough and would never make the top 10.

reason 12358901: she's playing the tennis of her life, not like many other top 20 players... geez, top 20 is like a competition for who's in worst form right now :o

4. She has a cool catch phrase (Ajde!)
3. She was #1

Cute list.

In all honesty, I don't think even most of her fans thought the former MM queen is capable of this level.
Show me one person here who said 2-3 years ago she's going to make the top 10.

I think it`s good that she is top 10. I really miss players from western Europe. Where is France? Spain? Great Britain? Germany? (if I count only big ones)
(I wouldn`t mind all top 10 players coming from Russia:D, but I admit variety is good thing)

1. Dementjeva
2. Šarapova
3. Zvonareva
4. Vesnina
5. Kirilenko (I was so surprised and impressed yesterday)
6. Klejbanova
7. Petrova
8. Kuznecova
9. Duševina
10.Pavljučenkova

Don't make me start a Hantuchova worshipping thread :p

No seriously, who gives a fuck, there are 23756345 Serena threads in the gm
the moment she takes a shit and doesn't spray air freshener afterwards.. it will be posted on here
so one little flavia thread really doesn't hurt anyone

There are players still left in this US open who can double bagel Pennetta.

miffedmax
Sep 3rd, 2009, 12:58 PM
And don't forget Flavia Flave.

I wish her and Lena D. were still playing doubles. I have to confess that's the main reason I like her--cause she's the former doubles partner of the formerly banged one.

But yes, she's cool. And cut her some slack. After all these years, she deserves her Top 10 ranking, and her own damn GM thread.

Sep 3rd, 2009, 01:01 PM
and she has a good head-to-head record against a certain top 10 player.

11.- She speaks a prefect spanish . And let me tell you something , her spanish accent is so sexy :hearts:
12.- She loves Latin America and fans in Latin America love her
13.- She was doubles partner of Elena Dementieva , the only time I was interested about doubles
