NOTE: If you don;t accept the WTA as an authority on players rankings, we have no agrreable point of discussion.

It looks like 2011 was a flat year for her, but when you dropped out of the top fifty the previous year, it isn't.

YOU are the one who posted video from Beijing 2010 as example of her play. It's not my fault she was ranked #36 then. Of course, that's according to the WTA. If you have a better source, please provide it.

Now look at 2012. IW, she's finally to where she won't draw a top 4 player in the round-of-32. And she's held that level solidly.

She just made the US Open quarters, her ranking is solidly in the top fifteen, where it hasn't been since the end of 2009. (Again, that's according to the WTA web site.) She actually made Serena play tonight, not just serve and hit winners. You sound like you're a fan of hers. What exactly is your problem?

AI is coming back! That's good news.
