Next week we will have five players in the top-100 with Kerber and Malek entering around 90. We already have Muller, Groenefeld and Kloesel. Arn and Schruff are just a few points short of the top-100 and surely belong there which means we could have seven Germans in the top-100 very soon. When was the last time we had something like that?

I know that none of them is capable of winning a GS but still it's quite a large "basis" you can build on in the future. Which countries except for Russia, France and the US (I'm not even sure about them) have more in the top-100 ATM? What do you expect of them?

German tennis seems to better off than in many years, yet not back to old glory (and it probably will never be). :)

Italy, with 9 players.

The US has 10 (and I'm not counting Davenport).

wellll. i would say top 20 is the limit.

The first post is crazy anyway, naming players who aren't evfen in the top 100 yet and somehow "deserve" to be there or "should" be there. what exactly does this mean other than a waste of time.

There are probbably 15 players who "deserve" to be in the top 10 then, right? :rolleyes:

That's great for Germany ! I agree on the fact that it is a basis, not real prospects for the future. By now, the real deal is Greta :worship:

I believe German tennis right now profits from a number of ITF clay court events that lift the youngsters and routine players like Arn. I think that´s the best part of the season. Up to the clay events right after Wimbledon. It will be interesting to see what the hardcourts does to them. Especiall Arn has a nice chance of climbing the rankings with nothing to defend till late in the season. ALG and Mueller might even be overtaken as the best Germans if some points in GS and bigger events are gone.

that's really a great basis, with Malek, Kerber and Petkovic still all being 19... Anna-Lena is still young as well
Greta won her first WTA-tournament last week, she's in the best form of her life, I'm sure she'll reach a new carreer-high soon :)
remember times when we only had 2 or 3 women in GS-MD? :eek:

I don't think her footwork is bad ;) And her FH is a great shot... but the Backhand is a big weakness :sad:

Her weaknesses are her service and this strange imitation of what should be a backhand.

Footwork, will and forehand are OK.

She needs to lose some weight and then is ready to remain among the Top100 for a while.
