Sevastova will be #10 unless one of these things happens

I like Sevastova and her unique game, but some people dislike her game.

She will be #10 in the world unless....

Bencic or Wang makes the SF.
Konta or Kontaveit or Serena makes the F.
Mertens, Martic, Georges, Hsieh, Navarro, Yastremska, or Collins wins Wimbledon 2019.

So unless Serena can win, WTA will need an exceptional performance from a Wimbledon outsider in order to halt Sevastova's appearance in the top 10.

I think most likely scenarios are Serena finaling or Bencic making SF, though interestingly, they could face each other in the QF if it comes to it.

EDIT: After QF, Only Serena and Konta are the only two obstacles to Sevastova!

EDIT: Serena prevents it from happening!

She's REALLY a Top 10 quality player, and absolutely deserves it!

Re: Sevastova will be #10 unless one of these things happens

It wouldn't last long. She's 'only' #26 in the race, she's going to have many points to defend after Wimbledon until the end of the year. She would need a GREAT second part of the season to stay in the top 10.

Maybe if she finally reaches it she'll stop choking in matches.

This thread feels like a major jinx and puts the final in her coffin.

Watch Carla win Wimbledon now.


But seriously, she was deserving of it last year. About time she got it.

Kirilenko also deserved it, and could manage it only not so much before she finished her career. I don't know how long Sevastova planes to play (just look at Aga Radwanska's sudden quit), so, I'm happy if Sevastova can reach the Top 10 ranking now, even if only for a couple of weeks.

Re: Sevastova will be #10 unless one of these things happens

Updated after R32.

Basically Konta needs to get to Final, Serena needs to win, or a remaining Grand Slam outsider needs to win.

Re: Sevastova will be #10 unless one of these things happens

Konta will get back to top 10 and maybe finally qualifies for YEC.

It is enough for Serena to reach the final as well. So unless we have Riske or Strycova in the final, Nastja won’t make Top 10.
