It's great to see such a crafty, smart player making the top 5 despite having very little power. I think tennis has been truly in danger in losing a diversity of styles and strategies. Power players can be fun to watch at times but I truly love seeing a game like Aga's because she always surprises her opponent with such a variety of shots. She is not just a backboard like Wozniacki who is a grinder, but instead can take the ball early, change directions of the ball and play well at the net. Change of directions and redirection of pace have always pleased my eyes as a spectator because it requires good timing and good hands.

Agreed. Radwanska is one of the most attractive players out there for me. I'm glad there's still room in the top five for a player like her. And who knows? Less than a year ago when she was ranked just outside of the top ten (twelve? Something like that) Eurosport commentators doubted if she could ever get back into the top ten, and look now. Top four seems almost inevitable at the moment. Who knows what's still in store for her?

The WTA ranking system continues to be exposed for the mess it is :facepalm: Radwanska is barely even top 20 on points won at Slams in the past 12 months, yet the WTA computer expects us to believe she's better than Stosur or Li? :spit:

When are the WTA going to finally put an end to this nonsense?

You could be ranked and seeded 5 in slams for two years and constantly come up against a top 4 seed and lose :shrug:

It's not JUST the fact she hasn't made a Slam semi. If she had something like 3 Slam QFs on her active record, then maybe you could argue she was a real top5 player. But in actual fact, she has just one Slam QF in the past 12 months, a 4th round and two 2nd rounds :help: Even people like Petkovic and Pavlyuchenkova have done better at Slams.

And? doesn't validate reaching the top 5 without ever reaching a slam SF. Azarenka got shit for this too (and rightly so).

But keep aiming for Hantuchova, she is a good bench mark for Radwanska.

Again, these sorts of arguments (that Stosur/Kvitova's worst results are just as bad as Radwanska's worst results) are epic fails when their BEST results are ones Radwanska could only dream of :tape:

And Azarenka also had a grossly overinflated ranking for most of last year (though not anymore).

agreed. Haters are always ridiculous on counting only Slam points. The official ranking are not known as Grand Slam rankings, but WTA TOUR RANKINGS.

Well deserved, AGA. She beat some great players this year, such as Petkovic, then-n1 Wozniacki, Goerges (2 times) and JJ.

Plus, she does not need to prove anything to anyone. She will be n 5, whether you like it or not.

That is true. And it's so frustrating that the last few years the big guns haven't given a shit about that.

The problem is, and poor Caroline is the perfect example, is that because the big guns now only care about the slams, the other girls come a cropper and get humiliated at the slams.

Either thevWTA scraps the slams:lol:, refuses to let part-timers enter :lol: or we get a breed of top players who play a full season. The only viable optin is the latter, and we might just get it with Petra and Vika, the rest not. So at least another year of much the same.

Vika's result when reaching TOP5:
GS: R4, R3, R2 R1 :tape:
wins: Miami, Stanford, Moscow, Marbella; final at Eastbourne
one win at YEC

Aga has:
GS: QF, R4, R2, R2
wins: Beijing, Tokyo, San Diego, Dubai
one win at YEC

honestly I'd give a slight edge to Agnieszka in terms of who's more deserved to be in TOP 5

Well she deserves it atleast becuase she been racking up the points in the middle east. Seems kind of empty though with Maria, Petra, Ree and Kim not there. Oh well.
That's exactly the problem with the current tour though, ain't it? Some are unable to play because they are injured, others don't play because they are not interested. And as a result those that do play and do well instead of getting the full credit they deserve are called "tournament whores" as though they are somehow to blame for the problems of those that are injured or unwilling to play.

well I guess we will have to wait till 2013 and then we'll see :shrug:


Vika's result when reaching TOP5:
GS: R4, R3, R2 R1 :tape:
wins: Miami, Stanford, Moscow, Marbella; final at Eastbourne
one win at YEC

Aga has:
GS: QF, R4, R2, R2
wins: Beijing, Tokyo, San Diego, Dubai
one win at YEC

honestly I'd give a slight edge to Agnieszka in terms of who's more deserved to be in TOP 5
Besides getting there by winning Dubai is better than winning Marbella :oh:

TBH her current rate of tournaments is a bit worrying. Fed Cup->Doha->Dubai->KL->IW->Miami->Charleston with only a week of rest in between is asking for an injury. :scared:

Yes miami is 1000 ranking points providing she wins :help::tape: and then charleston is 400 she would need to do well in europe to stand a chance and aga fade a little going to be a bit to tough perhaps but stosur has a chance.

Possibly sooner. That will make a significant difference. She'll have a better chance of making a GS semi or better but also the expectation of doing so. It'll be interesting to see how she does.

Yes, this would be terribly "disrespectful" and boorish and whatever other words you want to use to describe the horrendousness of TF posters, except people don't actually do what you're accusing them of - someone like Azarenka, who showed up at most of the relevant tournaments last year unlike those beastly part-time players, was never called a "tournament whore", it's only players like Wozniacki who cram their schedules to the brim with loads of extra tournaments that were called tournament whores. Not surprising that you, as usual, have to resort to attacking a strawman though, it shows how weak your general argument is :wavey:

Azarenka played 20 tournaments last year, Wozniacki 22. Hardly a huge difference, particularly when you consider that one of those two extra tournaments that Wozniacki played was an International in her home country. Caro's 22 appearances included all 4 slams, all 4 PMs, all 5 P5s and WTA Championships so it isn't as though she was ducking the tougher events and concentrating on the easier ones.

Serena needs almost 3000pts for top4 I think, yeah Im sure thats her main priority. :lol:
and Stosur just not enogh consistent to fight with Vulture Aga for a ranking spot.
When Aga gets top4 after IW, with some luck basically she gets free road into SF at any tournament. Ka-ching.

The WTA ranking system continues to be exposed for the mess it is :facepalm: Radwanska is barely even top 20 on points won at Slams in the past 12 months, yet the WTA computer expects us to believe she's better than Stosur or Li? :spit:

When are the WTA going to finally put an end to this nonsense?
:smash: Slams are the biggest tournaments, YEs. But the others are important too. If Na Li wins one slam but plays like shit the rest of the year, why should she get more points than someone who is consistent? I don't like Wozniacki because of her boring style, but she deserved to be no. 1. What kind of message are u sending to sponsors, fans everywhere by saying "only GS victories care, the rest are sh*t" :scratch:

Incase we forget.

An Internet 'troll' is an abusive anti-social user who delights in causing disharmony and conflict online. Named after the wicked troll creatures of children's tales, an Internet troll is someone who abuses their online anonymity by purposely sowing hatred, bigotry, racism, mysogyny, or just simple bickering between others. Because trolls like to promote fighting, they frequent blog sites, news sites, discussion forums, and game chat. Trolls thrive in any environment where they are allowed to make public comments.

The Sad Truths of Internet Trolls:

Trolls enjoy using shock-value statements to get angry responses from others.
Trolls gain energy by you insulting them.
Trolls gain energy when you get angry.
Trolls are immune to criticism and logical arguments. True trolls cannot be reasoned with, regardless of how sound your logical argument is.
Trolls do not feel remorse like you and me. They have sociopathic tendencies, and accordingly, they delight in other people having hurt feelings.
Trolls consider themselves separate from the social order.
Trolls do not abide by etiquette or the rules of common courtesy.
Trolls consider themselves above social responsibility.
The only way to deal with a troll is to ignore him, or take away his ability to post online.
