Agree that top 20 isn't such a big deal, but Lepchenko is still massively overranked considering her abilities and actual accomplishments.

Ugly technique, one-dimensional, unflairsome, doesn't really work the points.

She'll probably be around vulturing depleted US hardcourt events and taking advantage of draws falling apart for a few more years.
