Re: Ofri Lankri

I'll make an exception and reply to a bold post of yours

Yeah it will be a surprise if Lankri ever makes it to the top 200 but I hope she'll at least give it a go for a full season like Keren does (and most Israelis at that level never did, e.g. Astrugo ).
And for the record, there have been cases of players who did nothing until they were 25 and then broke into the top 100, like Bammer (who was even top 20) and Barrois. And we don't even have to look outside: Tzipi (though hovering around #150-200 for much of her twenties) is probably the oldest ever top-100 debutant at age 34.

Bottom line is give the girl more time to play before you send her home.

I totally agree

Re: Ofri Lankri

After her win in Israel is counted Ofri enters the top 600, and reaches up to #547.
Next couple of weeks she will have a couple of points more due to her qualifying in two 25ks

Re: Ofri Lankri

Shortly after that last post mid-2012 Lankri quit tennis while at her peak ranking of #545.

Two weeks ago she was the surprise package of a listless Israeli Championship, making the finals (beating Shlomo in the semis) from qualies after a year without playing, and giving Glushko a run for her money for at least a set there.

Afterwards, there was a very interesting interview with her in "Ha'aretz", titled:
"What prevented you from being like Shahar Peer?"
"Money"

I'll translate the entire piece if anyone's interested.

I did read the article in English and frankly she merely stated the obvious about money and tennis. One could argue that Glushko was suffering from the same dilemma as she was struggling to rise up in the ranks towards the top 100.
Even in wealthier countries like the USA, support is usually limited to the most "promising" of players and without a wealthy private source it is tough to get through the developing years.
