She has 54 matches won, and Amelie 53, she'll just have to win 6 more to pass Lindsay.
Only 5 people have over 40 wins this year, these 3 including Myskina and V. Williams.
After this week, has passed Vera Zvonereva to become the player with the most matches played in 2004 (71).
And she has played 67 matches in doubles in 2004 most on tour.


She still has Filderstadt, Moscow, Zurich, Philidephia, YEC to play.
She wont reach the 100 matches mark Kim did last year by the end of 2004.
However, with a combined matches played of 138 matches, she'll pass Kim who played 100 s + 50 d matches last year in # of matches played with 13 more matches. No one has played more than 150 matches in a year before Kim did since Martina Hingis.

Fewest matches played by a player this year in top 10 are
1) Kim Clijsters (23)
2) Jennifer Capriati (39)
3) Justine HH (40)
Elena Bovina played 37 this year, she'll probably pass Jennifer and Justine this week.

Factor in the doubles matches as well and I smell another Clijster-style burnout :o

Not being a thin blonde will help Svetlana's career. The cheesecake hype is a tremendous distraction.

Worthless stat. Sveta's played 6 more tournaments than Amélie this year and has lost more matches (17 to Momo's 11).

Who counts people's losses anyways:rolleyes:. The fact is Sveta has won more matches than Amelie this year.
She might have lower winning %, but the she has more actual wins, and a slam too I might add:).

The fact is that she may have won one more match, but it took her more tournaments to do so.

And yes, I am aware that she won a slam :rolleyes:

Svetlana turned 19 in June. She was losing in qualies last fall.
She is a big part of the future of this sport. Then next 5-7 years, Svetlana will be a force at every major.
If she stays healthy.

Don't get me wrong. My response had nothing to do with Sveta. I am a fan, and yes, I believe she'll be a force to be reckoned with for many years to come. I was just responding to some useless numbers ;)

As if you are a fan.... :lol:....making Sveta looking less capable of Amelie.
If the #'s are useless, then I guess WTA can start ignoring them.
Sveta will pass Amelie in the ranking soon anyways:).

Amelie is an excellent player. She beat Svetlana in Athens. They are at different periods of their careers.

And I don't think much of people pulling so-called "statistics" out of their ass :)

Sveta is my #1 fav player, but I still do agree with Linnie that this stat is kinda useless... I'd be more interested to discuss the total number of matches played as it could be a good predicament who is the next heading for an injury time out...

Those so call "asses" are courtesy of WTA...and it's capable of doing much more:o.
Once again.....the fact is Sveta won more matches than Amelie, period.:).
There is no need to try faking a fan, coz when you do, you look like an ass..no offense:).

Your argument is so pointless and pathetic, Sveta won more matches and played more tourneys, so what, you got nothing better do with ur time.

Well done Sveta and Momo they both had a good year.

No need to get all mad about it......I'm not demeaning Amelie at all.
I already recognize Momo has less tournaments played, same goes for Justine.
The point in the thread is just to illustrate how well Sveta has done this year.
And in some aspects, might be better than Amelie, who is the undisputed #1 player in the world:).

I don't want Svetlana to have any kind of "burnout".
The most important coaching Svetlana will get from the Sanchez-Casal Academy is when to play, and when to rest.

huh? losses are an integral part to judge a player's year. e.g. i'm sure there were players who had won more matches than s. williams in 2002, still no-one's going to argue that it was williams who had the best year.

and now you are going to be a well-educated young man/woman and will apologize to linnie.
