Sam finally broke into the Top 5 by losing first round at this year's Wimbledon :happy:

Isn't that good , being top 5 without winning a single match at wimbledon :lol: , but she deserves it because she faces the worst 1st round draw possible for a seeded player.

Jul 1st, 2010, 06:49 PM
She could thank Elena D for that.

Jul 1st, 2010, 06:49 PM
with justine unable to play till sept and make up ground, we wre in for aother horror 3rd or 4th rd match up at the USO. maria can't make up too much ground, i am afraid we are looking at another 4th rd vs serena ro someone else.

Congrats to Samantha :cheer:

Jul 1st, 2010, 06:54 PM
This is great for her, since she's already in my top 5 favorite players ranking. Hopefully she keeps up the great year she's having for a long time. Go Sam!

Jul 1st, 2010, 06:55 PM
Sammy! :dance:

Jul 1st, 2010, 06:59 PM
Bepa 9th!

Jul 1st, 2010, 07:01 PM
She could thank Elena D for that.

She could thank herself.

Jul 1st, 2010, 07:13 PM
Jelena back to No 2.:worship:

Jul 1st, 2010, 07:37 PM
She could thank Elena D for that.

So true!

Jul 1st, 2010, 08:48 PM
Bepa 9th!

That's hardly significant. She has been ranked #5 before.

When does Caro's ranking start to suffer as a result of some of the eggs she's laying?

Jul 1st, 2010, 09:56 PM
Tennis loses :sad:

Jul 1st, 2010, 09:57 PM
When does Caro's ranking start to suffer as a result of some of the eggs she's laying?Caro has YEC SF, IW final, FO QF.
So she wont drop too far, but she needs a good summer to stay top 5

Jul 1st, 2010, 10:00 PM
Yay Sam! :yeah:

Jul 1st, 2010, 10:15 PM

Jul 1st, 2010, 10:15 PM
not deserved but oh well. keep rising sam! she has so little points to defend from here on out...

Jul 1st, 2010, 10:43 PM
Not deserved? :weirdo:

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:00 PM
She could thank Elena D for that.


Jul 1st, 2010, 11:03 PM
R1 loss at Wimby and #5 in the rankings.....love it http://www.vvdrienerlo.nl/smileys/grin.gif Hard work is paying off, totally deserved spot http://www.vvdrienerlo.nl/smileys/thumbup.gif

Congrats Sammy http://www.vvdrienerlo.nl/smileys/42.gif

Tennis loses :sad:

Ehm what? Iīm surprised that she didnīt reach it already before Wimbledon..she totally deserve it and it doesnīt matter how style she is playing..if Wozniacki can be Nr.3...

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:23 PM
Can't believe that Woz stays so high.

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:25 PM
I'm no fan of Stosur's, but I'm happy for her. Looks like concentrating on singles was a great idea with some fantastic results!

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:35 PM
not deserved but oh well. keep rising sam! she has so little points to defend from here on out...

Bad calls. :o

Not deserved??? Excluding the 1st round loss at Wimby, Sam had been in 7 consecutive Quarterfinals or better. She had one of the highest number of match wins on tour coming into Wimbledon. She definitely deserves her no. 5.

Elena D's injury, Kim's inability to reach SF all helped in Sam reaching no. 5 despite the loss to Kaia.

So little points to defend??? Sam has tons of points to defend from last year's performance during the USO series (LA final, Standford SF). It's only the USO itself that she has not many points to defend.

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:40 PM
For those who follow her, we know that she deserves it. Injuries and bad days by other players are part and parcel of the game. Doesn't take away from the fact that she worked hard for it. It's not like she cruised into the top 10 without hard work

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:49 PM
This sucks.

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:58 PM
When was the last time not one Russian was ranked in the top 5?

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:58 PM
*fist pump*

Jul 2nd, 2010, 12:00 AM
I'm very happy to see that Sammy will be #5. However, she better start showing me she has more talent on surfaces other than clay !

Jul 2nd, 2010, 12:23 AM
Sam :yeah:

Jul 2nd, 2010, 02:12 AM
YAY Sammmy proud of you and your achievements... Goodluck in the USO series..

well deserved and great results (excluding wimbledon) :hearts:

hopefully she overakes caro soon :drool:

Jul 2nd, 2010, 08:10 AM
This is WELL deserved. She has been one of the most consistent performers this year with some exceptional results. How can some people not see that?!?!

Suck on that fucktards.

Jul 2nd, 2010, 08:12 AM
If there is someone that belongs in the TOP 5, it is Stosur. Just remembering 2 years ago when she wasn't even in the Top 30 reminds me how you can always improve throughout your career. Keep going Sam!
