Kim should be in the list of WTA #1 before 21. She was 20 and 2 months when she became #1.
Your stats are not valid and just ramdom, since centered around Ana.
Justine was 21 and a few days when she got her first slam, she played when she was still 20, her birthday is in June, so?
Kim was only 2 years on tour when she reached her first GS Final. So was Justine, 2 years and a few months.

Well, of course they are. This thread is directed at her accomplishments, and the company that she's in as an achiever of them.

BTW original 1st list which i create is WTA#1 with slam title (before 21), but than i make decission to present both WTA#1 and slam winners separetly (but forget to ADD Kim on WTA#1 list like only "slamless" #1 before ages of 21). That is reason for this mistake, not some conspiracy.

Also it's not my fault if some player reach some of this achivments just couple days after 21st birthday... Ana is right now 20 years and 6 months old - so i give 6 months extra bonus for all others Open Era stars which is enough fair. Before her 21st birthday Ana will play Wimbledon, USO, Olympics and couple of tier-I so she will maybe even more improve her achivments in terms of slam finals or big titles...

And at end of course that thread with this title is Ivanovic related. Like i say in oppening post i look at Ana career best achivments so far and research how many other Open Era players have same or better achivments so far.

I like to see Maria's name at all her achievment :lol:...Maria's better overall than Ana, but I'm really happy that Ana finally got the GS title, she's having great sucess and she's absolutely not overrated:yeah:

Congratulations to the first 6 foot + woman to win Roland Garros :)Yes... i write about that month ago when try to explain that even in WTA tour surface is important factor and give example of 185+ "Big-Girls" powerhiters like Venus, Lindsay, Maria which reach several Wimbledon, USO and AO titles but never at RG clay and i also try to explain why Ana will be maybe 1st exception of this "Giant curse at clay" rule.

BTW if Ana lose today - Safina will be also tallest RG winner ever (182 cm) and only 180+ French Open champion in history (before Ana and Dinara - Venus, Dementieva and Hanika also reach finals like 180+ womans, but lose).

But this is not imposible count like "achivment" despite fact that is realy much more impresive reach RG red clay title with 185cm (6'1) height than like 20yo girl!

Good stats- Ana is doing well. :D She has been improving so quickly and has reached so many milestones in the past year (first T1, top 10, first slam final, top 5, first slam title, no.1 etc.), I don't know what she can do next! She is right at the top now :worship:

Great stats, but please add Sabatini to the list of 1st Slam Title (before 21)

Nothing strange that Maria is on all this lists. She is only 6 month older than Ana and reach her first grand slam title when Ana is still out of TOP200 and also reach WTA#1 more than 20 months before Ana reach TOP10! And look today, we have rivarly now! Not because Maria stagnation (she is better and better) - it's because Ana Ivanovic officialy most improved WTA Player in 2005 and 2007 and like we all see she again improve this 2008 season.

Except Maria, on all of this lists with Ana is only Evert, Graf, Seles, Hingis and Serena which is fantastic sign about Ana future if she continue her career in this direction. Of course, Ana current results is still is not from the same league like this 6 multiple slam winners before theirs 21st birthday - but fact is that thankfull to her new improvments Ana probably already have TOP10 Under21 career in Open Era 5 months before her 21 birthday, despite fact that her Under20 career is not even TOP20 in comparation with all others Under20 careers cases from Open Era.

Ana can win 2 more slams before 21. And she can join another group Graf, Seles, Hingis, Sharapova, as players who've won 3 slams before 21.

Jun 8th, 2008, 12:47 PM
