What is curious is that she never falled down in rankings this years (semnificative fall I mean) and will be interesting to see how she manages her first "naughty" period that will surely come next years!
Anyway, impressive!

She has had periods where she has dropped in the rankings, notably last year before Rome. I think Cheddar was just showing the date at which Simona first reached a certain ranking, which would by definition only show an upward movement up the rankings. Anyway, this chart does show that Simona's climb in the rankings has been impressive and since Rome, for the most part, has been nothing but upward. Let's hope she can keep this momentum!

I think Cheddar was just showing the date at which Simona first reached a certain ranking, which would by definition only show an upward movement up the rankings. Anyway, this chart does show that Simona's climb in the rankings has been impressive and since Rome, for the most part, has been nothing but upward. Let's hope she can keep this momentum!
I understand that, but she never failed something like, I don't know ... from top 100 to 150 and to stay there 3-4-5 months!
I even mentioned in my previous post, semnificative fail
But what i really wanted to underline is that she is pretty consistent :P( "Kerberish" style, but with my bad English is quite hard to be honest ) )

Your English was almost perfect which is why I think I was a little confused by "semnificative" which is not an English word. Anyway, I was agreeing with the overall gist of your post that, in the long run, Simona has made a consistent rise to the top. I much appreciate your effort to express yourself in English as expressing myself in Romanian is not just hard -- it is impossible and your English is miles ahead of Google Translate.

Re: Simona's MILESTONES

'semnificative' = significant ? That's the way I took it.

Glad you guys like the thread. I hope it's a good way to celebrate Simona's achievements so far.

Re: Simona's MILESTONES

Good thread
Also brought back some good memories from the past when I first became her fan
