She's so talented so so talented
In my Opinion she's gonna be ranked in the top 5 in the next years.

She's so so good, so hard hitter, She's the real hope for China now that Na Li has disappear.

May not be that easy: she needs at least additional 500 points, and I am not sure that her style of playing is going to be equally effective on hard surface. She would have to continue playing at her Wimbledon level. We'll see soon.

Check her age first. She is not a teenage sensation. She is a very experienced player. She is 25.

:yeah: Nice. I'm also starting to wonder if she'll be that rarest of players - one who, even if not everyone's fav or second fav, is thought well of by all the factions in GM. ;)

Maybe she can.

But the moment she enters Top 20, every player is going to approach matches against her differently.

Agnieszka Radwańska, for example, at the age of 17, when she was still very low ranked, beat three tennis greats: Myskina, Dementieva, and Venus Williams. Today, when she is already ranked at #10, it may been harder to repeat such feats.

For similar reasons, it actually helped Zheng to have such a low ranking at Wimbledon because she caught off-guard both Ivanović and Vaidišová. For the first, she was a total surprise, for the second she may have been a one-time upset, especially that everybody was considering her beating Ivanović to be more due to Ivanović's weakness on grass than to Zheng's strength. After all Dechy nearly eliminated Ana in the 2nd Round.

Even Serena today, after the very easy first set (that she could have won 6:1), approached the second set as if the rest of the match was merely a formality. This allowed Jie to get back into the match, and she certainly did it admirably well.

So, it is safe to say, let's wait and see. In meantime, we can wish her the best of luck.

I am afraid, the moment she starts consistently beating Top 15 players, and moving in the rankings past players currently ranked 20-40, she is bound to incur jealousy mixed with hatred from fans of all those players she beats, or overtakes in the rankings. According to my observations, this is a sad reality at the TennisForum.

No, no, no... you're wrong.... SHE BLOODY DESERVES IT! :worship::worship::worship:

are we going to see an incredible rise of the chineese players? both Zheng Jie & Na Li have no points to defend for the rest of the year :eek:

Who knows... The other Chinese girls didn't do particularly well at Wimbledon. Li Na for example was eliminated by a player ranked #137.

What about Tanasugarn then? Does she 'bloody deserve it'?

The only difference between her and Zheng is that she had a lesser fortune of crashing into one of the Williams sisters in the Quarterfinal rather than in the Semifinal.

Peng Shuai made the fourth. I think Jie will finish the Year around 18-22.

Well, two things.... Jie was a WC, and she defeated Ana, Svazay and Vaidisova before losing to Serena.

I say that's some achievement for a person who stands only 5' 4".

Regarding Zheng Jie I am in total agreement.

I was asking about Tanasugarn: why not to mention her as well?

After all, she eliminated Cetkovská, Zvonareva, Eraković, and Janković (all apparently in-form), and just 2 days before Wimbledon started, she beat Safina in the Final at Rosmalen.

I say that's some achievement for a person who is past her 31st Birthday...

She has also been struggling with injuries of her own over the past couple years.
