Top 20 Aussie Girls
 
I thought it would be interesting to see the top 20 Aussie girls by rank and how they move each week. I will try to update this weekly.

1. Samantha STOSUR (9)
2. Casey DELLACQUA (123)
3. Anastasia RODIONOVA (131)
4. Olivia ROGOWSKA (139)
5. Jarmila GAJDOSOVA (165)
6. Monique ADAMCZAK (176)
7. Ashleigh BARTY (180)
8. Sacha JONES (190)
9. Bojana BOBUSIC (298)
10. Sally PEERS (346)
11. Jessica MOORE (377)
12. Viktorija RAJICIC (384)
13. Tammi PATTERSON (386)
14. Azra HADZIC (410)
15. Karolina WLODARCZAK (584)
16. Jelena DOKIC (590)
17. Storm SANDERS (626)
18. Stephanie BENGSON (648)
19. Abbie MYERS (662)
20. Isabella HOLLAND (678)

It is still hard to believe that Sally is still top 10 Aussie and Bella still top 20 :spit:
I didn't realise Jelena had dropped so low. Storm is set to rise after next week. We have 14 girls in Top 500 :yeah: and 8 in top 200 :yeah:

Yeh, its annoying. You can sort the nationalities but only from the small categories.

^ Thanks, it was annoying not to be able to do this!

Hopefully by the end of the year Bobusic will be in the top 200 and Rajicic, Sanders and Patterson the top 250.

Re: Top 20 Aussie Girls
 
^ Dellacqua was Aussie #1 in 2008 :eek: :spit:.

Stosur was mediocre for most of her young career, stayed in middle of Top 100 between age 20 to 24.
Does anyone remember what her tennis was like in those years and what has changed?


Ash might become Aussie #2 by end of this year, well if she gets some easier draws and starts winning at WTAs. The other Aussies are all old and/or slumping.

Storm! :cheer:

Re: Top 20 Aussie Girls
 
I think the big change in Stosur was when she switched from that shanky Prince racquet to the Babolat, and started hitting more consistently and it was around then that her forehand especially seemed to just have so much more crazy topspin and power.
I think the first win with this racquet was over Sugiyama at Brisbane.
I may be wrong.

I never knew Casey was ranked that high :eek:

Yes the Babolate racquet certainly gave her game more pop.

Combination of things:
The increased doubles play sharpened her footwork and reflexes up alot - including having a good mentor in Lisa Raymond,
Committing to developing her claycourt game and getting just about instant results, increasing her confidence,
The Lymes disease giving her a sense that time was running out if she wanted to be a top player

guichard Feb 17th, 2013 12:48 AM

^^^ Yes and then she really committed to singles and reduced her doubles schedule.
