My comments:


Kurumi NARA: New career high for Kurumi. Starting the year outside of the Top 400, this is a big improvement for this Japanese teen. Last week, she was granted a WC at Osaka $220K and reached the 2nd rd beating n°137 Scheepers before falling to 2nd seed/n°12 Bartoli.

Anna FLORIS: At 27 y.o, Anna is breaking the Top 200 for the 1rst time. Last week, she captured her 1rst challenger of the year out of 12 in her career at Madrid $50K ousting 6th seed/n°147 Ivanova and 3rd seed/n°117 Korryttseva en route en route. In final, she took the best over surprising n°375 Evtimova.

Eva FERNANDEZ-BRUGUES: Nice jump for this Spaniard who broke the top 200 a coule of weeks ago. Last week, she made it to the SF at Madrid $50K falling to n°209 and eventual winner Floris.

Claire FEUERSEIN: Huge improvement for that Frenchie who’s breaking the Top 200 for the 1rst time. She’s up 20 spots this week after capturing her 1rst ITF event of the year at Limoges $25K. She has to beat 4 compatriots (in 5 matches) during that journey in Limoges and took the best over in form n°307 Laurendon.






FASTER MOVEMENTS IN THE TOP 10, 20, 50, 100, 150 and 200:

Top 10:
Svetlana KUZNETSOVA n°3 (+1):
Svetlana is up 1 spot this week without playing overtaking Venus Williams who lost points from last year. She’s 1 place from her best ranking, but there’s a hug gap between the 2nd and the 3rd in the Word ranking (almost 2000 points).


TOP 20:
Yanina WICKMAYER n°20 (+4):
Top 20 entry for the Belgium young gun. What a nice gift just before her 20th birthday.
Yanina reveals her huge talent this week jumping from the Top 70 to the Top 20 and 2 titles on the WTA Tour. The 1rst one was in May at Estoril $220K. Last week, she won her 2nd crown at Linz $220K upsetting Top seed/n°11 Pennetta en route. In final, she took control of the match against an in form player unseeded n°55 Kvitova.
With Clijters impressive come back, and Henin in 2010, the Belgium is going to be one of the most dangerous countries.


TOP 50:
Alize CORNET n°44 (+4):
At the beginning of the year, Alize was one spot from the Top 10. 9 months later, she’s fighting to stay in the Top 50. That’s sometimes the issue with talented rising stars when they have to confirm. A year ago, 3 teens born in 1990 were fighting to get the best ranking: Alize, Paszek and Wozniacki. Paszek who was the most precocious in now n°186! Wozniacki is the one who keeps rising (n°6)…and Alize is struggling to find her best tennis. However, she’s up 4 spots this week after reaching the 2nd rd at Linz $220K falling to 2nd seed/n°10 Agnieszka Radwanska.



TOP 100:
Jelena DOKIC n°62 (+7):
Jelena reveals at the beginning of the year after her fairy tale at the Australian Open, reaching the QF as she was n°187 in the world. After many years, struggling to come back, she worked really hard during fall and winter 2008 to come back. Of course, after the AO, a lot of people were expecting major results from the former n°4 in the world. Sadly, she had to cope with a virus for many months. She seems to be back in better form and deciced to play on the challenger tour to capitalize matches and victories. Last week she finished Runner up at Joue les Tours $50K, losing in a high class final to former n°29 and current n°142 Arvidsson.



TOP 150:
Regina KULIKOVA n°139 (+13):
Nice jump for Regina who’s back 2 spots from her best (in july 2009) after capturing her 2nd Challenger of the year (out of 10 in her career). She seems to enjoy playing on hard court and in the USA as she won 2 of the 3 tournaments she played in 3 weeks. 1rst title as at Las Vegas. Last week, she won Troy $50K ousting 2nd seed/n°105 Lepchenko in QF and 4th seed/n°131 talented Tetrault.



TOP 200:
Anna FLORIS n°172 (+37): see above

Like I said, for sure, Yanina is having an amazing year and reveled her huge talent.
Her statistics are impressive:
-2009 Victories/Defeats Ratio: 51/22.
-2 WTA Titles: Estoril $220K and Linz $220K
-1 Challenger title at Surprise $25K (the real surprise is that she played at that minor level). It was in may, she was at that time n°79.
-2 Top 20 victories: n°11 Pennetta and n°18 Razzano.

I hope Jelena Dokic has an injury-free year next year and plays to the best of her abilities. We could easily see her in the top 10 is that happens.

The biggest shock this year has been Wickmayer! Granted, she had an easy draw at the US Open, but then again, it was an easy draw for many and she is the one who became the semifinalist! Plus, she's proven that she can play on ALL surfaces! Titles indoors and on clay, finals on grass and a slam semi on hardcourts! Hope she doesn't go through the dreaded sophomore slump next year!

You're right, how could I miss Yanina's run at the US Open.
After beating 16th seed/n°18 Razzano in the 1rst rd, she faced unseeded players until her loss in SF to 8th seed/n°9 Wozniacki. However, she showed some fighting spirit vs Peng and Kvitova with tight matches.

As far as Jelena is concerned, I think you're optmistic, but who knows?
1rst she'll have to defend a huge amount of points (500 from her QF at the AO 09) on the current 993 ranking points she has.
