View Full Version : Did Peer miss her chance for Top Ten?

She was almost there...

If only Marion Bartoli didn't reach the Indian Wells final, Peer would have been Top Ten last monday. That was so close but now it's so far away because she is actually struggeling with her form all year.

Always tough to peak at # 11 cause it makes such a difference being a Top Ten player.

Will she have a chance again to get there or is she going south from now on?

Thank goodness. Peer entering the top 10 would be like adding salt to a wound.

Probably will be the same problem with A. Radwanska entering the top 10.

It would be like being homeless and then being spat on.

I never like to think that you only ever have one chance to achieve something, but now with Maria re-entering the top 10 and Marion/Svetlana hot on the heels, it seems fairly likely that Shahar has well and truly missed her best opportunity... But who's to say she won't have another stab at it?

Shahar has worked hard to get where she is. So for all the morons insulting her, put a cork in it please.

I believe that she may enter the top ten later on, but she needs to be a little more consistent. She did a really good job at IW, so maybe she could do the same during the claycourt season. She's a big fighter and if she gets there, it would be well deserved.

For the moment, yeah she blew her chance. I haven't been convinced with her at all this year. She's had some good matches but she's definitely not at where she was last year. I honestly think this all has to do with her coach Pablo not being able to work with her anymore. She has the oppertunity to win matches but she's just not mentally tough enough to close out close matches. Pablo was a great coach to watch during on court moments because he wouldn't let her say "I can't." And he was brutually honest with her which is what she needs. I'll always remember when he told her once to stop sticking her ass out so much when she served. :lol:

She won't be top 10 for a while maybe, not with the kind of form she's in. However, there's no saying she couldn't do it towards the end of the year or even next year cause she's aint got shit to defend.

Yes she did. Losing to AMG was the last straw.:rolleyes:

If she got there or gets there then she deserves it. But would she have been a top 10 player 10 years ago?

I don't know why she gets so much hate. She is a solid top 20 player. Not a huge surprise if she sneaks in a few weeks in the top 10. It's not like she has this ranking because of one or two fluke results. She has a lot of QF and SF.

She is totally useless, it would be a shame if she reaches Top 10 soon. :o

She plays well on clay.. She can do it.. But AMG loss was :help:

The loss to Anabel sounds like she got nervous, knowing she had a good chance.
It doesnt take many points, only about 1/3 of Caro's points.
So Peer will have other chances

Maybe yes, she can really mix it with the big guns at her consistent best, so who knows.

Probably this time, but that doesn't mean to say she won't have any chances in the future.

I think she'll sneak a few weeks in the top ten before the end of her career. She's not old, she's usually a fighter on court, and she's consistent, so I don't think it's impossible.

Personally, I don't appreciate the way she plays, but I appreciate the effort she puts in, and I don't really get all the hate...

For a bit, maybe. But Jankovic and Stosur have quite a few points to defend during clay season, not to mention Schiavone's 2000 RG points, so there's some possible droppers coming in the next two months. Hell, Bartoli has 450 to defend THIS WEEK, plus about 500 on grass alone.

Peer's got a fair amount of points on clay, but not a really, really huge number (quarters and semis are repeatable). Where she can REALLY make a mark is the post-Wimbledon events. That's a surface and season that typically favors Peer and Peer-like players, and she hasn't got much to defend then.

The back end of the top 10 is very, very soft at the moment, and very fluid. Zvonareva, Clijsters, and Wonziacki are the only players that are really embedded. The ranking point distance between the world #20 and #5 is smaller than the difference between #4 and #3. A lot of things can happen during clay season.

I, for one, hope she makes it. Few players with her energy and spirit on court.

Which other active players peaked at #11?
I can think of Cornet and Wickmayer, then...

#12 is Yanina's career high, among active players Cornet is the only one who has peaked at #11.

But we have a nice thread about it: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=299240

I don't know about active, but there was a time when the career high ranking for Italian women as a whole was #11, reached by Silvia Farina-Elia, Flavia Pennetta, and Francesca Schiavone at three separate ranking weeks.

She's got 1055 points to defend from her 4 clay court events last year - over one third of her total, so that is quite huge actually!

Sharapova will probably return to the top 10 after Miami. And with Radwanska, Ivanovic, Bartoli and Sveta contending for top 10 I think it will be very tough for Peer. I suppose Venus will be back soon too. I hope so!

Obviously Peer is still quite young so she could make it later, but I don't think she'll make the top ten this year!

She's always been up and down... but I'll doubt she breaks into top ten now.

i hope she did as well she gotta alot points coming up to defend this a huge miss chance in miami for her. she a good stable top 20 player. I like to see Radwanska back into the top ten and Ivanovic. but for first time ten player i think Wickmayer,Pavlyuchenkova,Cibulkova,Kleybanova will be better top ten players

Peer entering the top 10 would be the worst player to get there since ATP's Fernando Fiasco.
