View Full Version : Anna Kournikova will return to the top twenty

Mar 31st, 2003, 04:48 PM
At some point, and may7be not for long. But athletic ability does count for something on tour, and she has loads of it. Her stay may be as short as Alexandra Stevenson's, but I believe she'll get at least week.

My question

What YEAR will Anna first return to the top twenty?

Mar 31st, 2003, 04:52 PM
Who knows when but I believe that she can make it back no problem she has the talent for sure! I mean her game is slightly dated by hopefully Soloman will get her back on the rails.

If the Top 80 all mysteriously contract injuries and are forced out of the game simultaneously, she's in there no problem.

I am keeping the faith and thinking positive, so I say THIS year! Go, ANNA!!! You can do it! You just have to BELIEVE!!! :bounce: :bounce:

Hendouble, WHATEVER!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Yes but by then she'll at least have the chance to return to the Top 20, with cyborgs and re-animation and stuff.

I picked 2007 and it will be a doubles ranking ;)

didn`t see that option :devil:

in 2001 we said she would be back in top 20, in 2002 we said she would be back, in 2003 we are saying she will be back, i think the question is, how long are we going to say this? its just like everyone saying serena will eventually loose, probably the clay courts, well we said she may go out in australia, she didn't, we said she may in paris, she didn't, we said she looked of in miami, she still won. i think we have all gone off on our predictions over the last couple of years. I say wait, if it happens good, for anna, if it doesn't. it wasn't meant to be for her clearly.

Anna Kournikova came awfully close to the top 25
but then she got injured
so i'd say this year or next year
she is more talented than half the top 15, so thats gotta count for something

Mar 31st, 2003, 09:57 PM
Well she doesn't have many points to defend so if she can win a couple of matches, maybe next year she could make it.

Mar 31st, 2003, 10:00 PM
she still has time to do it this year but she needs to get her game working. if she plays her best she'll have no problem but then anna doesn't usually play her best but hopefully that will change this year.

Poor Anna! I don't think there's been a female player for a long time whose game has been so thoroughly scrutinised. For her sake I hope she improves on her game and makes it into the top twenty again in the next few year. It really isn't that important, coz she's already been quite successful and thanks to her looks is financially set for life, but getting back into the top twenty would do wonders for her credibility.(although I suspect for most of you here, even if she makes it intot eh top twenty she'll never be 'good enough')

Anna will never return to the top 50, never mind top 20

but she's still mighty hot and we'll still buy the calendars and shit

and Anna will still be making more bucks than most of the top 10

Ra!'s all round :)

I was torn between this year and the year of the rapture! If she doesn't make it this year then she won't make it, imho. So I went with the Year of the Rapture (which could be any year we just don't know ;) )

Didn't "Rapture" come out in 1979, or thereabouts?

Anna has a lot of tools to work with. (Which is part of the problem.) Once she gets things together enough to return to the top 20, she's going to stay there for a while, barring another injury.

I wouldn't rule out Anna 12.0 being in the top 20 in 2206. :)

In 2206 anna will be rebuilt into a cyborg and her frozen head will be attached and brought back to consciousness. Sadly Her new cybernetic body will be unable to compete with Serena williams great great great granddaughter Suprema Williams.

according to the way she is playing now,
she will be hoping to return to TOP 100
about a year from now....... :rolleyes:

2003. top 8. :)

Apr 1st, 2003, 03:25 AM
Anya plays a full, healthy year... she should be Top 10. Will she? That's up to her.

Apr 1st, 2003, 04:05 AM
