Flukeronkova needs to retire. That one Grand Slam semi-final will be the high light of her entire career, and she really doesn't have any weapons to make a consistent impact at tour events. Luckily for her, the Wimbledon points will sustain her over inflated ranking until the summer, and then she will sink back into anonymity.

wimbledon semi finalist :help:
I really can't deny I praised Piron's style of play in Wim and how she disabled Vee... but honestly Vee should really be torturing herself for the least seeing what Piron has accomplished then after... I don't wish that for her the most but Piron should get back where she deserves to be.

I like Tsvetana, but she's really overranked... she's a player who deserves to be in Top 60, but seriously nothing more.
She's overranked in terms of her current level, but before that Wimbledon run many people thought she could be ranked around this level even without one "fluke".
I hate when posters call her a fluke because you dont just fluke your way to a slam semi, rather she had a burst of great form when it mattered. I always thought she was terribly unlucky, a good player who never got a break but now it's the opposite. We'll see what happens on clay though, hopefully she'll win back to back matches.

Really...she is sth like Zakopalova actually... big ups and downs (also in the ranking, Pironkova attacked such positions before but fell in a big slump and fell outside TOP 100, then Wimbledon SF and now another slump), good, watchable game, when they´re on then they´re hitting winners literally from everywhere...but it´s shame that both hasn´t playing their 100% that often:awww:
But I´m sure Pironkova still didn´t say the last word...this "fluke" will have another "flukes" I guess:p She just fell to typical slump but that means nothing, she has still a plenty of years to achieve maybe another GS semis:p
