seems like there's always a thread asking, "who is the most inconsistent, streakiest, whatever" which got me thinking, is ANYBODY in women's tennis consistent?

my vote for consistency goes to Suarez, Zvonareva and Tannasugarn, they usually beat the players they are supposed to beat.

It's funny. Some people thrast inconsistency, yet say the others who
are consistent are boring draw fodder. ;)

Sugiyama had a consistent year last year. She beat most of the players she should have.

Tanasugarn - not anymore.

Which can be seen very well in her grandslam results. :sad:

I cannot agree more! If you like her you'd better come see her play against a player ranker lower than her for sure. Her slams results are one of the most impressive as far as regularity is concerned.

I agree about Dechy

Dechy is an excellent choice for overall consistency on both ends of the scale. On the "winning when you're supossed to end" Myskina comes to mind. In the last two years she had maybe five (or so) losses to opponents where she was favored...not bad.

Lisa Raymond, she's been ranked in between 30 and 20 in the world for something like 9 years. I think she asks the ranking of the player before coming on court to decide if she's losing or winning the match ;).

Year end ranking:
2003-28
2002-29
2001-22
2000-31
1999-28
1998-27
1997-17
1996-33
1995-20

Zvonareva & Dechy!

Petrova achieved that too by the end of last year!

Has to be Maam and Maria Sharapova - they won't be outside the top ten much longer!

If players outside the top 10 were so consistent then they would be in the top 10..

If players outside the top 10 were so consistent then they would be in the top 10..Not necessarily - Mary Pierce has been very consistant since Wimbeldon and the only reason she's not in the top ten is due to injury. Maria Sharapova was prevented in playing the tournaments required to be a top tenner due to her age. You can be very consistant but not playing in the necessary amount of tournaments prevents you becoming a top ten player.

Nathalie Dechy definely is one, Silvia Farina Elia is another

I think Raymond's consistency is true only in her rankings. I mean, she's a streaky player and in terms of her result of each tournament and players she loses and beats, she is very inconsistent. But it's amazing how consistent her year end ranking has been for so many years.

Name all those players at will, but i defy anyone to tell me that Nancy Loeffer-Caro is not the most the most consistent player on tour!!

Do players really want to be only "consistent"?:rolleyes: I mean, why bother to play a sport professionally if you stay the same year after year?:confused:

I can't get too excited about a player who gets into, say, the top 40 and then ends every year between 40 and 50. These are the women who are fodder for the top players in the early rounds. They lose 6-1; 6-1, walk off court, pick up their check and move on to the next tournament.

I can't understand being satisfied with being mediocre.:mad: Especially if the player is still young.

I love Mary

Silvia Farina, Lisa Raymond.

Why Chris Evert, of course- she's outside of the top 10, and still the most consistent player, probably ever!

Stevenson is certainly very consistent in her own way.

Un Placid Parisian rode inta the Arizona desert right near 2 years ago now, ranked about #50. After a 1st round win, she met this Irish lass name o' Meghann (who even lived there) was ranked about #12 and just beat up on that ironwoman named Bye. :p Et ma belle :hearts: pulled off the upset.... uh, wait, she's 9-0 lifetime in this h2h! :D

Who says they are satisfied? Why do you think they are still working? Don't you think also that they enjoy their job?
There are so many girls that are working hard, that are talented....they cannot be all in the top 5 at the same time! Also you can say they are mediocre but only if you compare to Serena or Justine...and even that I won't say. Those "mediocre" players are working so hard during all the year. At school did you always get great notes even when working hard?
