Petra Kvitova is >>only<< ranked # 7 but she doesn't have to defend any points till the end of the season.

Her tournaments after Wimbledon 2010:

PORTOROZ
R32 H2H Voegele, Stefanie (SUI) 98 L 7-5 6-2

ISTANBUL
R32 H2H Sevastova, Anastasija (LAT) 57 L 6-2 0-6 6-4

COPENHAGEN
R32 H2H Cirstea, Sorana (ROU) 63 L 4-6 6-2 6-4

MONTREAL
R64 H2H (16) Rezai, Aravane (FRA) 19 L 6-7(1) 7-5 6-3

NEW HAVEN
R32 H2H Bondarenko, Kateryna (UKR) 62 L 7-5 6-3

US OPEN
R128 H2H Hradecka, Lucie (CZE) 121 W 6-4 7-5
R64 H2H Baltacha, Elena (GBR) 57 W 7-6(5) 6-3
R32 H2H (2) Clijsters, Kim (BEL) 3 L 6-3 6-0

TOKYO - PAN PACIFIC
R64 H2H Bondarenko, Alona (UKR) 31 L 7-6(8) 6-2

BEIJING
R64 H2H Pennetta, Flavia (ITA) 22 W 7-6(4) 6-1
R32 H2H Kanepi, Kaia (EST) 23 W 7-5 6-7(6) 6-2
R16 H2H (1) Wozniacki, Caroline (DEN) 2 L 6-3 6-2

LINZ
R32 H2H Rodionova, Anastasia (AUS) 63 W 6-2 1-0 RET
R16 H2H Goerges, Julia (GER) 43 L 6-2 6-1

MOSCOW
R32 H2H Bondarenko, Kateryna (UKR) 126 L 6-3 6-7(7) 6-1

POITIERS (ITF/$100,000)
R32 H2H Camerin, Maria Elena (ITA) 111 W 6-2 6-1
R16 H2H Keothavong, Anne (GBR) 125 W 7-5 6-3
Q H2H Rybarikova, Magdalena (SVK) 105 W 6-3 6-2
S H2H (3) Arvidsson, Sofia (SWE) 52 L 7-5 6-4

Her best result was the 3rd round at the US Open.

If Kvitova is as strong as she has been in the first part of this season, she's got a chance of becoming # 1! Doesn't she?

She has been rock solid this year appart from a few weeks in spring. Cut out the tournaments from Dubai, Indian Wells, Nassau und Miami and she has got a 42:4 record!

With a good run at the US Open she might be # 1 pretty soon!

I think she'll probably end up in the Top 5 by the end of the year, but unless Petra wins US, I really don't think Wozniacki will lose a 4500 point lead over her by the end of the year, even if she has a lot of points to defend.

It's amazing that she did so well but so bad in the 4 tournaments :confused: :help:

The funny thing is that Na Li broke down at the same time: Fantastic start to the season, then 4 first-round-losses and she came back in Madrid - just like Petra.

And these two are the two best players of the first half of the season :)

I read on Metro today about her :)

she said she had alot of Self doubts even after reaching SF at Wimbledon last year, She wonder if she should continue to play,if she can't go all the way.She was struggling with self believes,now She won Wimbledon.all the doubts are gone.

So she probaly won't be staying at 7 for long :cheer:

Jul 4th, 2011, 02:04 PM
Last year she became known as semifinalist of Wimbledon and she was comenting for Czech media she struglled with the pressure everybody awaiting her she could be next TOP player. This year is different. She won 4 tournaments including T1 and Slam and she doesn't need to prove anymore she is TOP player right now. Basically no need to count how much point she needs to defend, Race to Champ after already 1/2 a year is better showing what is your current position in TOP 10 players, Petra is second with also 43/8 win/loss this year (only comparable in current WTA is consisten Caro 48/9). I suppose she will finish at least about 2-4 ...

I'm not at all sure what to expect from Petra between now and the end of the season, but if she continues to play well, it's perfectly doable. Wozniacki has 5465 points to defend until the end of the year, so basically if Petra was to pick up just over half the # of points she has picked up so far this year, she will be in with a big shot. I doubt Wozniacki will get anywhere close to as many points as she did last year because there is just so much more competition going into this US Open series, compared to last year when it was just her and Vera.
It's amazing that she did so well but so bad in the 4 tournaments :confused: :help:

The funny thing is that Na Li broke down at the same time: Fantastic start to the season, then 4 first-round-losses and she came back in Madrid - just like Petra.

And these two are the two best players of the first half of the season :)
I was at Paris and I remember she picked up an injury there and was so tired even though she won easily in the final. But she didn't withdraw from Dubai/Doha. She lost her momentum from the start of the year and only picked it up again when she had a bit of a break before Madrid.

defending almost nothing means one thing for sure, won't be lower than #7.
to go up, still needs to win matches. ;)
Yup.

Looks like Kvitty has (had) a lot of trouble with both Bondarenko sisters.

Anyway still astonishing that she lost against certain players from that list when you think of how well she can play.

I'm going for #5 at most because of her random consistency failures.

Woz has the 5000 to defend but other than Beijing / USO / YEC, if she screws up in one of the other tournaments, she can just replace it with Stuttgart or Doha (320 point tournaments that do not count in her ranking)

I mean, the Woz has these tournament that are not in her ranking now:

Stuttgart F 320
Doha F 320
Copahagen W 280

probably Bastad W 280 :spit:

Wozniacki points do not include Copenhagen and Cincy.

Just did the maths:
9915=
4 slams (900x2+280+160=2240)
4 Mandatory (1000x2(IW+China)+140x2(Madrid and Miami=2280))
top 8:
Montreal+Dubai+Tokyo(900x3=2700)
YEC(890)
New Haven + Charleston + Brussels (1410)
Rome (395)

Total 9915.

So She has to defend 5060 only for the rest of the year,starting from Montreal.

Just look at the Race points. Wozniacki is still leading there, heading into her favourite part of the season.

BartoLiNa
Jul 4th, 2011, 04:49 PM
Top 3 is a realistic prediction. When she's in good form she can blast her way through the competition (Madrid, Paris, Wimbledon) so it's not unreasonable to say that's going to happen at another 2-3 tournaments this year at least. She could always take the 2010 Caro approach and win all the tournaments that no one else cares about.

If she finishes outside the top 3, or certainly the top 5, then I would consider it disappointing based on what I know she's capable of.

I'd be surprised if Petra isn't top four for the US Open, honestly and finished the year within that section. That said, Petra is still prone to lapses in form like she had earlier this year after her strong start to the season but I doubt she'll have another 6 match losing streak but she might get upset a couple of times throughout the rest of the season.

Both her and Na should finish the year top four.

If anything this thread demonstrates how difficult it is for Caro to remain No 1 while without a slam victory. Had Maria won over Petra it would have been even easier for Maria to overtake Caro as well. So rather than jeer Caro for being No 1 without a slam victory one could marvel at her being No 1 for so long.

I love now how Kvitova fans are cocky since a few days ! It only comfort myself that she isn't a consistent player and seeing such kind of players winning a GS : it says enough we need some Leaders back at WTA Side !

You don't have Kvitova fairytales nor Li Na fairytales at ATP side ! THe big guns often are there when it matters !

Too bad she fucked up Dubai, and IW-Miami Run :sad:

All that means is that next year before Madrid, assuming she does well for the rest of 2011, she'll be groomed to be #1.

I don't see anyone but Caroline as the YE #1. She's leading the race and she's sure to pick up a lot of points during her favorite part of the season.:hearts:

I think Caro would like to hold the #1 spot.
She lost it for 1 week to a player who was holding 2 majors, the YEC, Miami & Cincy.

I wanted to see if Kim could take it away, but she got injured.
Petra is still far away from even discussing whether she can take away Caro's #1 spot.

Lets see how she handles her grass success. Didnt handle it well last year.

Caro can keep her #1 for eternity.
I'll be happy to see Petra "struggle" during regular tour if she keeps winning Grand Slams. :)

Wasn't Kvitova outside of top 30 in the beginning of the season? If she reaches #1 ranking by the end of the season, it will be unbelievable. :eek:

Honestly I cannot see Bepa defending her USO final, if she doesn't then Petra will benefit from it.

:lol: @ the poster who voted for #10 option. That option shouldn't even exist. Even if she doesn't play for the rest of the season, it's impossible thing to happen.

hopefully she can keep her actual form for the rest of the season, wta needs a strong nr1
plus now she will go to istanbul, so a chance to earn some big points there where girls like wozniacki and vera has a lot to defend

Woz will enter every tournament to ensure she stats number one. Woz may suck at GS, but outside of them, she's always seem to win.

I think Petra will be fine this Hardcourt season. Koytsa and the team are doing the right thing, by resting Petra till Toronto. That's over a month from now. My assumption, is they'll play Cincinnati the following weak (or maybe not), then just rest her/practice/focus for the upcoming week of the US Open.

Yeah. Let her get all of her post Wimby Celebratory feel out now.

I think last year, between expectations, being tired and niggling injuries, Petra didn't do to well post Wimby. But it appears her team, has been making a lot of good decisions lately. And pulling out of the clay tournament Bad Gastien (however you spell it) and resting Petra and her leg/abductor injury, was a good one, indeed!.

Based off of what she says, Petra seems a lot more focused, aware and motivated this year over last, as well. We'll see?

She'd certainly be a much more deserving #1 than Wozniacki.

Who wouldn't? :o

When Kvitova reaches #1 (because it's just a matter of time), the Tour will offically be saved. :worship: Countdown is in progress.

Yes sweetie. The Tour looks a mess with a Slamless hack opportunist atop the rankings. Thankfully this transitional phase seems to be on its last legs. :hearts:

you'd think she'd be able to put up good fight against Clijsters; especially on a fast surface :lol:

I guess that's all behind her now though :)

I don't think Kvitova will be a super star like the Williams-sister or Kim Clijsters but she could be at the top for a long time. Her game is so natural and effortless. I haven't seen such a beautiful striking since Lindsay Davenport.

Don't worry about that post. Shitty player won the titles on 3 different surfaces this year, so... :shrug: 1 MM at the beginning, 1 Premier event (Clijsters in final), 1 Premier Mandatory and finally 1 GS. It says a lot. :)

I'd rather watch an entertaining shotmaker like Petra whose talent is obvious and who can win slams than Caro and her percentage game that won't lead her as far.

I think #4 is by far the most realistic goal this year. She would have to pass both Sharapova (GOAT point-average this year, Cincy only big one to defend), and Azarenka (will defo scoop up a lot points on HC and not that much to defend) to make #3 or higher.

Jul 5th, 2011, 04:56 PM
I think Kvitova will finish at least 3rd and is the slight favorite to finish 1st.

She only trails Caro by 700 points and has a significant positional advantage. Kvitova has 3.5 "open" spots and Caro has zero.
