1. Silvia Farina Elia: only has 2 titles and both from Strasbourg III
2. Anna Smashnova: 4 titles this year already, but none in Tier II
3. Natalie Dechy: finally.......a Gold Coast title......
who do you think has the best chance to
win a Tier II or even I tournament,?
IMO, probably Smashnova....
but none of them has a good record against TOP 10,
so hopefully the wont meet seeded players till Final

Can you tell me who outside the top 20 has a Tier II+ title?
Interesting statistics BTW! :D
Oct 13th, 2002, 08:07 PM
well, Piece, Majoli, Arantxa, Cochita are all Slam winners
but have been doing well for the year,
Anna K and Dementieva got pretty close in Moscow though,
Oct 13th, 2002, 08:42 PM
actually a couple more
Eastbourne Tier II was won by
Natasha Zvereva in 99 who played as WC in Wimbledon this year,
and that's pretty much it

Anna can beat probably anyone (maybe with the exception of Amelie, Jenn & the Williamses) on clay, & probably on hard courts too (well she did beat Dokic, Henin, Clijsters & Shaugnesy this year)

Anna S. is very good on the Aussie hardcourts, as well, but the field in Sydney is always extremely tough.
Oct 13th, 2002, 09:36 PM
She didnt play Sydney.
Oct 14th, 2002, 12:05 AM
she should be able to be seeded in Sydney,
i hope she can try to get a top 16 seeding,
and hopefully reach the 4th round,
then she should be able to get to top 10
while others should probably fall......
but winning Sydney would mean her name is off this list...
Dechy is falling out of 20 next week,
but Dementieva coming in will have to win
a Tier II or I title to prove that she has the
ability to reach top 16, the different b/w
TOP 10 and the rest is that Tier I title
that Myskina and Rubin are still searching for
while Maleeva has done it already to
prove she belongs to the top,
if Farina Elia, Anna S, Dementieva, and Anna K,
or even Elena Bovina can't get a Tier I title,
they probably wont be able to reach top any time soon

Anna Smashnova, please coming to Sydney next year!! :angel: I want to see you in person!! :o I know you want to defend your title at Canberra on the same week.

Eleni Danillidou: lost in Bahia to Myskina......so close
Elena Bovina: well she is gonna get a Tier II
sooner or later.......:)
