Re: WWW Indian Wells?

Muguruza finally has THE nightmare draw that could pull her out of her slumber.

Someone like Mertens or Sabalenka will probably take it tbh

She also beat the legendary “Peak Petra”.

She also beat Kvitova in the final, if memory serves. And upset specialists Sevastova + Hsieh back to back. Oh, and Pliskova was extremely injured indeed.

If winning the two most recent slams and being #1 doesn't qualify you as the player to beat, I don't know what does. Granted, she's still kinda inconsistent and has a new coach, so I'm not at all sure how she'll fare.

I think your English leaves a lot to be desired. I'd rather see some comparative statistics proving your point. By that I mean more numbers and less words.

I'm dealing my man, I'm dealing. So, to be clear now, "everyone" transformed in "The Majority here on TF". Progress! Now to get closer to the issue. Is there a poll somewhere on TF where "The Majority" voted that Halep's stay in top 5 is because her cake draws?
(duuuude! you gotta make that poll! I'm sure TF will vote exactly as you say. You will have proof of your inane opinion! I mean there'll be a vote! dooooooeeeeet! I might vote yes, maybe we get to that illusive "everyone"!)

Haleps success comes primarily by using weak Draws.

This isn't the 1st Time in her Career she got a weak Draw.

Numbers, lacks numbers. Keep at it. I mean posting the same stuff repeatedly might make it true. You never now. There's that Flat Earth shit going. I hear it's a grand idea.

As for numbers, she's merely taking advantage of a flawed rankings system, much as the now-fading Dane did, although she is/was much worse.
