Rankings are an accurate reflection of player performance.

It's so bizarre seeing Monica all the way down at 18

yes, they are accurate... i'll give them that.
therefore kournikova and hingis both need to improve exponentially to pass monica in the rankings...

only because of injury...hmm, seems injury has really played a huge part on rankings this year.

Leave "my" Conchita alone! I totally love the fact that some no-talent fat-ass like Tauziat gets to No. 3 in the world, who knows how, and everyone loves it, but Conchita, playing like shit most of the time, somehow manages her way back into the Top 20, and now she is the object of totall scorn. Conchita won tons of great titles and was Top 5 for a long time! She earned the right for a nice twilight ranking. She has earned it, the computer says so! You people are really cruel and I cannot believe someone would post something so nasty about a player as good as Conchita. Monica has been injured and missed a lot of tournaments. It is no reason to use it as an opportunity to trash a player like Conchita. Shame on all of you!

Good for Conchita!! She deserves it for her consistent showing AGAIN at Roland Garros.

I absolutely cannot believe that someone would use Monica's misfortune and injury to trash and heap scorn on Conchita. Conchita has earned better! This is a cruel topic.

Calm down Conchita fans...no one is knocking her. Volcana was just pointing this out, don't be so rude.

conshita deserves it. she has a win over davenport and went way further at the french and has played more tournaments than monica. i just didnt want people who don't like monica to say that she should definitely retire now that she is ranked below conshita... crap like that. i didn't mean to say anything bad about conchita. i enjoyed her run and think its neat she got back up there... top 20 that is.

I'm very happy Conchi got back to the top 20, but I would hardly call that win against Davenport a legitimate victory since she was crying in pain towards the end and had to retire

lol... my bad... i can't seem to say anything right today. let's just say she would have had a good chance against davenport regardless... this being her best surface and lindsay's worst. i have a question thought bc there havent been any threads really abt her injury- did she pull something in the match before? or was it during the match?

It's great that you call Tauziat fat since she is, in fact, skinnier than "your" Conchita. And last I heard, she had plenty of talent.

Shame on you.

conchita has beaten lindsay, jennifer, daniela, jelena, danilidou, and alex stevenson since october last year, and has made the SF of two Tier I events, the QF of another Tier I, a couple of other QFs, a final of a Tier III, and a QF at a Slam. That's decent stuff.

Monica has done precious little in the last 6-8 months. What do people expect :confused:

I think this is Seles' lowest ranking since 1988. She finished 1989 ranked 6, so I can't believe she slipped so low in 1990 when she won the French and rose to number two be the year end.

it's also not the first time Conchita has been ranked ahead of Monica, either. Look at 2000-2001 when Conchita was top-5 for a good deal of the time.

What this tells you is the injured veterans go down the rankings (Monica) and come back up when healthier (Conchita). Unless Monica's foot has gone permanently worse than the past 4 years, she will be back in the top 10 and the big matches.

Just over 14 years ago.

She had a toe injury which flared up during the match with dechy. She then had to come right out the next day and play Conchita, so maybe she didn't have enough time to recover.

I say good for Conchita also! Monica is my very favorite player, but Conchita's ranking has nothing to do with Monica. I don't know why people have to make these direct comparisons, it just begs for a big fight. Conchita is ranked where she is because of what she has done, same for Monica. Perhaps perspective is needed. Monica is ranked 18 in the WORLD. That is nothing to be upset about. I would love to be ranked 18 in the world.

I'm just really happy that I got to see both of these brilliant women play tennis this year. :hearts:

Lets just take Monica out of the equation for a moment.

Conchita was ranked in the low 70's a few months ago, now she's 17 - that's all I'm saying. :)

Thats very sad to see Monica is not playing well because of an injury.

I don't care about all said. I only know Conchi is Top 20 again and might be top 10 if she's lucky at the end of the year, so I'll keep on :bounce:
