Re: Compared to the active top is Maria Sharapova great or just very good?

I'm a bit late into this, and i feel i'm kinda echoing others, mainly OsloEric, but my 2P:

Maria is no where near her past abilities, and yet she is undeniably a contender for most tournament she...

Re: Kerber with her new personal HCR as #4 (#2 if she wins the final)

Angie has been winning more and more close matches.
She's learning the winner mentality, and it's that extra push that assisted her to overcome her most recent conqueror which owned her (Azza) as...

fair point for both sides, and it's a pity that everyone left the thread...

Re: Is Kerber the second worst top five player of all-time?

Sloane is still not back from her initial high-impact year.
Nothing guarantees that Genie will have a better 4 year patch than Angie did.

Don't forget Vaidisova, Stevenson,
Nor Golovin and...

Re: Is Kerber the second worst top five player of all-time?

You could have raised the stats and facts, hence creating a more significant thread.
It's OK to raise a concern regarding a top players actual level, but you better back it up with information,...

Re: Is Kerber the second worst top five player of all-time?

You'd make a better case if you were to present the data of all CHR #5 players and present what took them to that spot; i.e 4 GS results, title wins, finals and semifinals, top10 wins, top 5 wins and...

Re: Imagine if we still had Quality Points in the rankings!

yup.
It was mostly a few places up or down the ranks once you got to the 20+ ranked players, and it was a complete headache to try and calculate what a player's new ranking would be.

Re: Anna-Lena Friedsam - Improving with every Slam

My prediction is that she'll improve further career best results this year, especially at IW and Miami.
That itself + her past 6 months should be enough to seed her in most MM events, hence enjoy...

Anna-Lena Friedsam - Improving with every Slam

A positive little story of improving gradually every time she enters a slam, which is nice these days when players are making huge splashes in slams and then regressing, or simply not making it to...

Re: The fall cometh: Simona Halep

For the sake of discussion - There aren't too many girls who had as long a patch as Simona had in the past 2.5 years. of those, let's say that she was admittedly "off" mid 2015 already, put still a...

Re: JANKOVIC Takes Over For SCHIAVONE, Longest Active Consecutive Grand Slam Apperanc

All these stats just go to show how much longer women are playing these days, overtaking many top players of the past.
The list is heavily built towards 90s players, but of course this also has to...

Re: 25K Bangkok R1: (SE)Patty Schnyder def. (Q)Marianna Zakarlyuk 64 61

Her first matches were close affairs, and she lost after long sets/3 sets.
her "bigger" tournies (75, 100) losses sent her back to the lowest level to just keep up the fun.

It's early to say that...

Re: 25K Bangkok QF: (Q)Patty Schnyder def. #243 (4)Sabina Sharipova 36 64 60

Her best result since the comeback, (25K SF >>>> 10K win).
wonder if she has it in her to win another match.

Does anyone know where she plans on playing after this tourny?

Re: Will Halep do better this time than QF (2x) at AO '16?

She's going to have many, many QF in the next 3-4 seasons.
But she needs some latter stages luck for a F, and the bouncy AO courts are going to help her.

Re: Schiavone Eyes The Record Books

She should still be able to qualify with a cushy draw.
the first two slams of the years should favor her style.
Regardless, she's still playing a full schedule so she has her chances.

Re: 2016 - season of retirements?

Not sure which "event" has more impact - YE, Slams, or Olympics.

Italians - for...

Non Slam winners are generally hard to compare, so titles (both quantity and quality), significant wins and CH are used to determine...
