Not that I disagree, but Mary Joe loved her, uh, "portfolio"....

The entire premise of the thread is retarded. Reaching top 10 is a huge achievement for a professional tennis player (you have to have at least one very good season to just get there), and trying to pinpoint the worst one in history is like, IDK, choosing the worst chocolate amongst the elite brands. They all taste good at the end of the day.

As for specifically Errani, she cannot be titled the worst top 10 even if one was stubborn enough to make such a contest:
a) she backed up her sudden ascension to top 10 with solid results ever since - some top 10 players in history climbed to the outer edge of top 10 and dropped off immediately, never to be seen up there again
b) there were times with much worse depth of field
c) in general, players at the beginnings of the open era did not conduct as professionally as the modern players do. Navratilova's and Lendl's fitness regimes were novelties back in their days, nowadays it's a standard and Errani managed to shine, so she would most likely beat many players of yesteryear
d) Errani's an amazingly successful doubles player, which shows she has many great tennis traits outside baseline grinding

Apparently I must spread some reputation around before giving it to aselto again. So I'll post a smilie instead.

The only thing I can fault in this post is the fact that it takes the arguments that Sara is the worst top-10 player ever much more seriously than they deserve to be taken. In every other respect a perfect post

Re: Is Errani The Worst Top Ten Player Ever?

I like Errani and I dont think Kournikova was teh worst player in the Top 10 either. She was clearly very talented

Re: Is Errani The Worst Top Ten Player Ever?

Sara has to be praised for making the upmost of her abilities and making the top 10 for her is an amazing achievement. Her game does highlight the tactical stupidity of a lot of other players but that's their problem not hers.

Definitely one of the weakest top 10ers. I can think of three former top 10 players who were weaker imo ( I really liked them all though ) - Sandrine Testud, Brenda Schultz-McCarthy and Karina Habsudova. Karina or Brenda probably win the thread title but anyone who can say they were one the ten best in their profession in the world at any point has a lot to be proud of.

Re: Is Errani The Worst Top Ten Player Ever?

I'm not a fan of Errrani at all and had to endure watching some of her matches in person and it's not really much fun, BUT there's more ways of playing tennis than one and he's obviously able to make her way work very well. No shame in that whatsoever. So not only don't I agree with the question of the thread, I'd struggle to call her a bad player to begin with.

We should all struggle to call any top10 player a bad player to begin with.



Anyway, this has been fun for a while, but the thread has run its course. No need for further player-bashing, I'm closing this now.
