Re: Worst Player in 2012 Year End 100?? Qualification Round (26th Dec, 11am CET deadl

Sorry but how the following players can be considered the worst in the Top 100?
Just to make some examples:

Annika Beck
This girl is just 18 and she is already in the Top 100 of best active female players, an achievement that many players can just dream of. Maybe she has no big wins, but she has won some good titles in ITF circuit, and the amount of her losses is really poor. She has been progressing year by year, and she has points enough to be safe in the ranking, that means she is not close to going out of Top 100. Almost 150 places gained in just a year, that is impressive.

Camila Giorgi
Leaving apart a good season at ITF level of my favourite, she had a great Wimbledon, beating two good players (Pennetta and Petrova) and coming to the Fourth Round, once again an achievement that many players can just dream about. She is just 21 and she qualified several times to WTA Main Draws. Considering her money problems until Wimbledon, too, this is a huge season for her. 75 places better than last year, by coming through a "hot zone" (120-150), which is hard to surpass. Just look at many girls who are close to Top 100 by years and yet did not enter it.

Polona Hercog
Hercog has won a title, how she can be the worst out of all these players? She had a worst season than last one, this is clear, and her results at Slams have been very bad, but the title saves her and her season enough not to insert her in this list.

Mathilde Johansson
Her "flop" of 5 months can't be denied, but it has to be remarked: after a disastreous start of the year, she managed to pull all her skills together and have a dignitous 2012, with a final and many good wins/matches. She is one player who is able to collect surprising wins here and there, and she almost preserved her ranking from last year.

Iveta Benesova
Benesova could have done more this year, but how can anyone say she is the worst player in Top 100? She is probably one of the girls who achieved less!

Arantxa Rus
She made it to 4th and 3th round at two different slams, once again she had some excellent results against excellent players. She can be not consistent, but she is very young, I am sure she can improve with time.

And I could go on. Arruabarrena-Vecino and Oudin won a title, Morita has been injured many months, Vandeweghe came to a final into a Premier tournament, Panova has definitely improved a lot, Voskoboeva and Bratchikova played some good Grand Slams (they haven't a great consistence, but this is not a valid reason), Daniilidou has built herself a good ranking with good results, Voegele has just come back in Top 100, and I could go on.

Why do you have to make longer a negative list like this? A few names would be enough.

In my opinion, Barbora Strycova has probably had the worst season overall, in terms of results and tennis expressed. Some players are ranked lower than her, you know, but she could have done more while, except for two or three good tournaments, she has done almost nothing. And that's a pity: she is very good when motivated.
But I would not even vote for her, honestly.

I can imagine that many users will use this chance to vote against the players they dislike more, and that's a real pity. Dislike can be ok, but destroying an entire year, knowing how hard these girls work to stay in Top 100, in order to give our singular feelings about them a voice is not ok.

I just posted all players from 71-100, because when I made IMO Semifinals, where I excluded all of them except Beck, people didn't like it. Pick your 5 and players above won't participate in Semifinals.
