A question for Czech people here: Is she Hlavackova or Hlavačkova and where is the stress (accent)?

Is she bad enough to replace Melanie South as the worst top 100 player ever?

From what I've seen in doubles, huge serve and very nice groundies :shrug: But then again, South plays pretty much a similar game.

My bad, missed Lapuschenkova in the top 100. She's the worst of them all, getting bageled by Pironkova right now.:tape:

I thought maybe Noppawan had a chance considering how Andrea's been playing singles. But good for Andrea.

Why do you always have to troll? :shrug: Lapushenkova played better tennis in Stuttgart than we have seen from probably ~70 of the current top 100. One week wonder or not we will see in a year or more maybe :rolleyes: Pretty ignorant to be calling her the worst player now, 2 months from her breakthrough.

Oh, you're exaggerating. There are only a few tennis species I occasionally like to make fun of.:lol:
Besides, GM is terribly boring these days/years so I have to amuse myself every once in a while:angel:

Too right!!! Andrea was amazing. Pretty much everyone I wanted to win today did it in style playing great tennis but no one was better than Andrea. Total revelation. And she looks so happy in the end. Best smile of the day. :bounce: :inlove: :rocker:

that was really good
Andrea :) :D

gonna be dangerous opponent for Bepa :scared:

You're not kidding. On the basis of what I saw of her today I would say Vera is going to have to bring her A+ game with her Wednesday or she will be in for a very tough battle.

Not Czech but I'd say the latter with stress on KO

Not all that surprising. Noppawan literally has nothing to hurt anyone with. :shrug:

Considering how Lertcheewakarn's pro career has been going ever since she was forced to stop hiding in juniors and had to begin playing lower tier challengers, I'd say it's rather worrying that Hlavackova dropped as many as 5 games to her.

I don't know about that. She is only 18, and by the rate that players are developing these days that is still very young. How many 18 year olds can you find in the top 100? I think Oudin is the only one. Since the start of the year Noppawan's ranking has actually moved up from around 400 to around 300. I would say that is solid enough. There is no rush. And if some of her results this year have been subpar we should keep in mind she is clearly a better player on grass than she is on anything else.

And in fairness I saw numerous matches today that were of a lower standard than this. This was actually a very good match. Let's see how Andrea does against Vera, I'm not saying Andrea will win but I expect it to be very competitive.

Lertcheewakarn is losing to Wang-Ting Liu, Wen-Hsin Hsu, Kanae Hisami and Sandy Gumulya. There's nothing solid about it.
There are 17 girls younger than her in top 300.

I always see Hlavackova in doubles and think "Damn, this bitch is good" and am always so surprised by her poor singles results. Nice tournament so far! :D

Lertcheewakarn sucks. She just doesn't have what it takes to compete on the pro tour.

That's Wen-Hsin Hsu and she's actually good! :fiery: She was #221 at 17 but got injured and basically did not play for 2 years :sad:

Err...I counted 16. And is that so many? I don't think so. Being the youngest player to reach a specific level doesn't really ensure much anyway. Look at what has happened to other players who have recently progressed rapidly at very young ages. Paszek, Krajicek, Vaidisova, Larcher de Brito. These days if you are progressing at a rate that takes you into the top 100 by the time you are 20 you are doing fine. There is no need to rush it.
