View Full Version : Who are your favorites - not in the Top 50?

Fellow members of this board often impress me with their knowledge of some of the lower ranked players. Sure, it is easy to say Sharapova or Clijsters are their favorite players since they get all the headlines. But you really have to know your stuff if you say Stosur or Karatantcheva are among your favorites.

So name your faves among those players that fly under the mainstream radar (below a ranking of 50).

Here are mine currently (in no particular order):
Meilen Tu
Meghann Shaughnessy
Sania Mirza
Claudine Schaul

Mines are:
Mashona Washington (who will probably find her way in the top fifty after Wimbledon)
Stephanie Foretz
Angela Haynes
Shahar Peer
Sania Mirza

I like Mashona, but at #53, I think she's about to move in the top 50 after Wimbledon:)

Others I like:
Krajicek
Haynes after this week, she impressed me...
Rubin...of course is really a top 50 player, just injured....

Ranked 50-100:

Daniilidou
Loit
Rubin
Kirilenko
Srebotnik

Although I firmly believe these girls are all top 50 players (esp. Chanda, Emilie, and Eleni). Also, I hope to see Perry play soon, because I have a feeling she might be a player I'd like.

Others:

Serna
Perebiynis
Tulyaganova
