Re: Players who have reached a major semifinal/final, but have never been Top 10

Very interesting, I'm really surprised that there is only Lisicki in the first category, no flukes at all. A position in the lower part of Top 100 + slam final means only about 2000 points, so the year of the slam final is not necessarily enough for being close to Top 10. So it's safe to say that all slam finalists who had a bad year then had at least one very good other year.

Madison Keys * Sorana Mihaela Cîrstea * Garbiñe Muguruza
Maria Sakkari * Belinda Bencic * Kristina Mladenovic
