View Full Version : Francesca-Flavia: who will be top 10?

Dec 17th, 2006, 08:49 PM

For me Francesca this year has lost the big chance to be the first italian player to be top 10 and next year there are Ivanovic, jankovic, vaidisova, chak. ecc..

I am not sure if either can get there now, though I :hearts: Flavia and think she has enormous talent, beautiful game. They both will get close again though, Fran #11, Flavia might crack the top 10, #9?? ;)

I adore Flavia, but I think that mentally Francesca is closer to top ten...
I gotta admitt that I doubt that either will be cracking top ten...sorry :(

nobody even if i like them

Dec 17th, 2006, 09:13 PM
as much as i love flavia, i can see maybe top 15.. no more :sad:

Dec 17th, 2006, 09:23 PM
francesca maybe reaches the top 10! but it's gonna be tough

Dec 17th, 2006, 09:26 PM
i hope flavia but i thought francesca

Dec 17th, 2006, 09:33 PM
Fran maybe but I don't think Flavia will make it to the top 10 in 2007

Francesca will reach the top 10 before Flavia does (if she ever does get there) but I don't think that either will be there for a long period of time, probably spending most of their career around the 15 mark

Dec 17th, 2006, 09:51 PM
Sadly neither of them... Fran has had her chances this year and wasted them :( I don't think Flavia can break Top10 either... maybe Top15.

Dec 17th, 2006, 09:51 PM
The answer is obvious: none of them. Never. No way.

I think Francesca needs wins her 1st title to get confidence to get into top10!

agree. but who no's, we could be wrong.

Neither but I think Flavia probably has a better chance. Schiavone has most likely peaked as player. I think Flavia is more likely to improve.

I don't see either in the top 10. It's not totally out of the realm of possibility, but I don't see it happening. Francesca will (most likely) fall at least a few places after her Sydney final falls off, and I can't see her getting back to #11 or better after that. Flavia would have to equal (or probably better) her pre-summer hardcourt results, and then go on a tear on the summer hard courts. I can't see that happening.

Wait until Francesca wins her first title then time will tell you :) At this moment, none of them have chance to make it in Top 10.

flavia has the best chance, unless schiavone has work out how to win tournaments

Dec 18th, 2006, 01:16 PM
if anyone it will be flavia

Dec 18th, 2006, 01:38 PM
Nobody :sad:

Unfortunately Francesca has already missed many times the chance to enter in the top 10. She has spent a lot of weeks at n11 (equalizing with Silvia Farina the best position ever reached by an Italian player in the ranking) and I have the feeling that she won't improve anymore her career best ranking. I hope to be wrong.
As regard Flavia, there's no way she can reach the top 10 but she can get back in the top 20 if her wrist won't trouble her.

neither - Italian players can only get to 11 :p

Dec 18th, 2006, 01:45 PM
Francesca will, I mean the top 10 could all die and she becomes number one.

Dec 18th, 2006, 04:27 PM
I voted for Fran....but I doubt they will ever reach the top 10. Fran has a chance IF she wins a title, that could change her career, she could be steadily around nr 8 for a couple of years.
Cannot see Flavia going that high, she can improve, but she hasn't got enough power....she might be back into the top 20

Dec 18th, 2006, 05:45 PM
Neither, i wish it was flav but there is just too much competition to get in there

Dec 18th, 2006, 06:15 PM
Probably Fran if she gets lucky with loads of top players injuries and the like. :yawn:
I like Flavia, but would be surprised if she ever made top 10. She's a solid top 25 player.

The biggest problem preventing I think either player from getting to the top ten is their mental lapses they suffer on court. And both are suddenly dealing with injury issues that are hurting their cause too.

Both are tremendous players that have a lot of fight and determination on court. But both players have weeks when they play awful and lose too many early-round matches.

You just can't play brilliant tennis for say three-straight tournaments and than look like amatuers in the next two. Top-ten players go deep in the draw week end and out.

What's exciting about the game is that the top-twenty is getting more crowded with great talent. I think Frannie and Flavia have top-ten potential but they really have to want to be there and I don't always get that feeling they want it bad enough in their results.

I think that majority agrees that it will be damn hard for either to get into top 10!
Francesca really had a big chance to get in top 10 in the first part of season, but now... :rolleyes:
Flavia is always "there". She can pull of some good wins, but I doubt that she can beat some serious top ten player... :sad: I really would like to see her having some great sucsses...but...

Dec 19th, 2006, 02:27 AM
i voted Flavia cuz i think she has a better mentality than Fancesca during a match and i think she can win some really good mathes against top 10s...Francesca needs to win a title,and maybe that could change her and be a top 10!

Dec 19th, 2006, 03:05 AM

Agree. Franny missed her chances this year and Flavia just won't get there. :(
