WTA players' ATP rankings

Hey all, after seeing an exhibition match (Henin-Hardenne vs Noah) I was just wondering: what ranking would -say- the top 10 WTA players have on the ATP? I know it's probably a VERY low ranking simply bc of the power factor, but I couldn't say if I'm honest... Anyone happen to know this? Thx a bunch!

Re: WTA players' ATP rankings

I'm thinking if the tours merged, the women would be fighting for a place in the challengers.

Re: WTA players' ATP rankings

I think near 800 or even lower.

I think Enquist is not in the top 100 currently and he would beat 6060 the William sisters or the belgians, and Giovanni Lappenti is ranked 200 something and he would completely trash any top female player.

The guys the william sisters use as sparrings to practice say that if they play their best tennis they beat the sisters easily.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: WTA players' ATP rankings

Probably star.. Really, 800 or lower?? Oh... I think *not sure about it* that I heard some1 say the (present) top 5 women's players would be around 500 in the (present) men's tour.. Could that be about right? But ye, you could be right about that 800-thing.. Don't know

Re: WTA players' ATP rankings

Hmm....interesting topic.

I think that top WTA players would be around 600-700, it's sort of relative, but anyway I think they couldn't be higher than that....

I was going to say the futures, but I thought that was limited by some other criteria.

The other thing is that the men who play on the challenger circuit play relentlessly trying to get their rankings up. Some of the top women can't even hold up playing less than 20 tournaments a year. Not only do the men play at a much higher level, they play a LOT of tournaments compared to the women. Look, Lleyton is thought to be semi-retired and he played 17 tournaments this year.

Re: WTA players' ATP rankings

I've seen the match too and it was very clear that Noah wasn't playing at full force to keep the match in balance and to entertain the crowd. I have no idea where women would be ranked, but I heard Patty Schyder beat a guy once and I guess he was top 300 (if I remember correctly) so what does that say? Patty isn't even as powerful as the Williams sisters and Clijsters.
Maybe the girls could give guys a hard time once and a while, but not on a regular basis.

I think this is the key right there. On a given day, some of the top women could probably beat a decent man, but day in and day out, highly doubtful.

Re: WTA players' ATP rankings

Just wondering (is my fantasy btw...je je) : wouldn't be a Hingis (at her best ----> something difficult ) vs. Coria (at his best too) match be interesting?

I mean....Coria should be the winner, but it would be very fun, many rallies, drop shots, not hard serves, some fantasy plays....

Re: WTA players' ATP rankings

lol yes that would be interesting. Hingis was one of the few women's players I really liked to watch

Re: WTA players' ATP rankings

Yes....and what about a Safin or Roddick vs. Serena? Interesting too.

Though the man would finish winning too probably.

Re: WTA players' ATP rankings

I'm not a fan of the Williams sisters so I wouldn't really like that as much as Coria/Hingis... that would work b/c they are more finesse players, shot-makers, whatever. A power matchup wouldn't work because Andy or Safin or people like Flip, El-Aynaoui, or even down to Dent, Ljubicic, etc., would just blow any female off the court I think, even Serena. Whereas the male players have all played each other so they know what the power is like, I'm sure Serena's never played anyone with the power of these guys so she wouldn't be able to handle it at all.
