Comments

- most of these debuts aren't very impressive, but many great champions crashed out 1R or 2R on their own Slam debuts, and then took some time before reaching their first 4Rs and QFs.

- very interesting group of debutantes at 2007 RG. Big one too, but there were more at the 2006 AO, which is odd considering how the feeling I had at the time was that the rankings were fossilized, and that "personnel turnover" in the #80-120 ranking range (where many Slam debutantes are ranked at the time of their first GS MD) is now much faster than it was back then.

- after compiling the data for the 2005-2006 debutantes, the 2007 RG group looks even more impressive. Many young hopefuls making their (generally successful) debut there.

- the 2005-2006 debutantes are a varied and interesting bunch. They include players who went on to become solid journeywomen (Kanepi, Vesnina, Dominguez Lino), others who have become stalwarts of the #80-120 range (Pironkova, Savchuk, Voskoboeva, Shvedova, Bychkova), others who were there for a while (Pous Tio, Lisjak, Sromova, Gajdosova), a veteran overachiever who has made the most out of her limited abilities (Bammer), others who shone briefly only to burn out even quicker (Poutchkova, Bardina, Oprandi), and the tragic figures of junior supernovas who never fulfilled their potential and look increasingly unlikely ever to do so (Kutuzova, Flipkens). Other interesting stories are those of Skavronskaia, Perianu and Vierin. Skavronskaia was already a veteran of the challenger circuit at the time, and a longtime resident of the top 200 - but the 2006 USO was the only Slam MD for which she ever qualified. Perianu slowly made her way up the rankings back in early 2006, and for a while it seemed she would be the first Rumanian to crack the top 100 in several years. But it was not to be - later, when everyone expected one of the young Rumanians (Olaru or Cirstea) to be the first to do so, it was Gallovits who claimed the honour, a few weeks before Olaru broke through at RG. Vierin is an unheralded Italian (I don't think I ever heard her name mentioned in here) who was ranked high enough to get direct access to her first Slam MD at 2006 RG (this happens fairly frequently; for instance, Cirstea never qualified for a Slam, and her ranking allowed her direct entry to the 2008 AO), but failed to do anything there and at Wimbledon and sank back into the challengers, as Perianu, Woerle and Abramovic did. Vierin remains one of the players who came closer to cracking the top 100 without ever actually doing so.

- Flipkens' debut is interesting: as stats freaks know, she made it to the 2006 RG MD as a LL, drew the very same player she had lost to in the final round of Q, but this time won.

Nice work:cool:. Julie Dittys name really stands out as she is 29 and really took awhile to perfect her game style. She also decided to complete her college education before competing full time on tour:bounce:.

Thanks.

This is part of a crash course on Scrubology I'm taking in anticipation of the Estoril Open, since I suspect WTA scrubs are all I'll get to see there this year (ATP list is the pitts, still unsure as to whether I should pay for pricey Court Central tickets when I fear Roger may withdraw).

There are many interesting stories like Ditty's in the 2005-2006 debutantes. Check the commentary.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes
 
RG entry list is out, and there are three debutantes with direct entry to the MD: Erakovic, Kvitova and Rodina.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes
 
Some are very impressive. Although the majority of them haven't improved massively.

Edit: wow, Vesnina reached the 4r. :bolt:

Big hole in the draw there. IIRC she beat Q Savchuk in the 3R.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes
 
Several career high rankings in the opening post are now out of date. I'll update them all after RG.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes
 
Still, pretty good...but Vesnina is bad now. :sad: She was never very good anyway... :shrug: Lisicki's was also very imppressive. :)

Re: Grand Slam debutantes
 
Ivana L had such a promising start to her career. Now she can barely win matches in 25ks. :(

I think Kutuzova is finally starting to get herself together. She's shown more potential than Flipkens at least. The only conclusion as to why she's been in the doldrums over the past year is because her game is rediculously risky. She takes the ball earlier than nearly any other player on the WTA and goes loves going over the high pats of the net.

Vika K. won Cagnes, but she has won upper tier challengers before only to fall in the same scrubbish mediocrity immediately afterwards. Haven't seen her play in two years (!) now.

Kvitova could definitely give a surprise, however it is on clay, so I'm not sure. Too bad her debut is not on a faster surface.

Last time I seen her was against Dementieva RG 06. A match she really should have won and I still have it on DVD. Her game reminds me a bit of Sharapova without the serve. Plus she's a headcase. I think she definately could still get it together on the main tour. She's still only 19.

Again, I think her game is too high risk, plus her frying-pan doesn't help matters.

Unlikely? That was a sure thing if there ever was one.

Too bad about Lyubtsova; she may never get an opportunity like this again.

So our debutantes out of qualies are:

Wickmayer
Rybarikova
Suarez Navarro
Pandzic

LOL I had a moment of madness too and predicted Puchkova to win against Suarez Navarro, without remembering Puchkova has no serve. :o

Wickmayer has a chance for a 3rd round appearance.
Rybarikova could win a match, but it depends on which Sprem shows up.
Suarez Navarro will meet Mauresmo I think. Who knows what could happen in that match.
Pandzic can definately set up a clash with Radwanska.
