Regardless of ranking who are the players which you would consider la creme del la creme of the tour?

Obvious Choices:
Serena
Sharapova
Venus
Kerber
Kvitova

Kvitova
Pliskova
Bertens

Only these three takes tennis seriously. Maybe Barty and Animisova if they show consistent desire

Aside from those, I think Bencic, Osaka, Barty, Pliskova, Svitolina, Muguruza, Bertens and Ostapenko are still the best of the rest. Svitolina, Osta and Mugs have fallen off a bit, but they're just another good run from another rise.

Lol...Halep. how did I forget?!

Re: Who are the elite players of the tour right now?

Elite players meaning? Contenders and get the big courts?
You can see when Paris started and when Wimbledon starts who gets the big courts. I have no idea who is a contender. Unless I can pick 20 of them

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Elite in the sense of the word elite. Although tennis ability does make up some of it a contrary example would be Kournikova as an elite player due to her star power.

Maybe star power would of been better but that would of became a flame war...

i wouldn't call Halep a elite player anymore, whoever draws Halep at R1 in wimbledon should consider herself very Lucky to be honest

a good chance into round 2 if you just put a bit more variety in your game you win against her

Re: Who are the elite players of the tour right now?

I always think of the "Elites" as the 2+ slam crew. They can generally be a threat on any given day and most can agree that their peak level of tennis is impressive, even if they can flop at any given time. Even if out of form most players would be happy with a win against them.

So for me that would be:

Serena
Sharapova
Osaka
Kvitova
Kerber
Muguruza
Azarenka

For me peak Woz and Halep are elite athletes, not elite tennis players, so I don't really see them there, but to each their own.

Bad reps. Green one's are good reps, meaning posters like your posts and red means posters don't like your posts, which is on top of the "like" in the thread.

When you see person's comment, below their profile picture there is star. When you click on it, there is i approve and i disapprove option. If u approve, u send green dot and ret for opposite. Also you can add comment there too which will reach that person.
If you wanna know if someone approved you or disapproved you, click on tools and go to user cp. You will find it
