LOL beating Mugsur doesn't make you a top10 player.

She's got the right game to be ranked way higher than she is now, though.

No. Is this a joke?

Even though she's ridiculously overrated, Tatiana Golovin, for example, was a better player.

No, Meghann Shaughnessy, who peaked at number 11, was WAY better, with several victories against Venus, who was playing pretty well.

She is two times GS semifinalist, defeating Sam isn't her biggest success

I know, but why hasn't this thread been started when she reached the Semis then?
And this particular case emerged because of her beating Mugsur, not reaching Slam SF.

Besides, the answer for the OP questions is rather not in my opinion.
There's been a handfull of players that I'd put above Jie that didn't enter the top10 either.

Re: Is Zheng Jie the best player in the 21st century to have NOT made the Top 10?

I'll go for Dechy and Farina Elia here. Pennetta would be the obvious winner had she not made it briefly.

Maybe cause people were expecting her to break into Top 10 after winning that amount of points, so there wouldn't be much of a point to create a thread like this

Re: Is Zheng Jie the best player in the 21st century to have NOT made the Top 10?

Her hand-eye coordination is brilliant . But any decent top server can feast on that serve and she will struggle any time you get the ball consistently high (naturally). Still, I don't see why those flaws would be any worse than those of, say Sara Errani. Cibulkova hits a bigger ball but lacks a brain and has no feel. Zheng is good at the net. So she's certainly a strong candidate.

I think though that it takes too much energy to play like her, moving so fast and constantly pushing yourself to pounce on balls before they get high, changing directions on a dime etc.
