Way too early, but other than Venus replacing Sugiyama, I dont see any large movements

To be realistic - JHH has far too many ranking points between her and Amelie - and is likely to defend a hell a lot of them so I see her at the top until the end of 2004.
Kim will remain where she is with the Wimbledon title in her pocket and Serena will go back up to No.3. as she will come RU to Wimbledon and at the US (losing to JHH).

1. Justine Henin-Hardenne
2. Kim Clijsters
3. Serena Williams

Anastasia will reach No.4. after a French Open SF and Wimbledon and US QFs as well as the Moscow title (Tier 1). Lindsay will be at No.5. after winning the Canadian Open and San Diego (both Tier 1s) - however she will only go as far as the Quarters at the slams.

4. Anastasia Myskina
5. Lindsay Davenport

Amelie is at six - injured and unable to regain points won in the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year. Nadia will be at six - she will win the titles in Sopot, Copenhagen and Linz after deciding to play Tier iii and ivs - to be top seeded and to win them.

6. Amelie Mauresmo
7. Nadia Petrova

Venus remerges in at No.8. - a good showing taking the Italian Masters and Philidelphia. Vera Z is at 9 - she wins at Quebec City and at Pilot Pen Tennis tournaments. While at 10 Svetlana Kuznetsova who got to three more finals but no championship title

8. Venus Williams
9. Vera Zvonareva
10. Svetlana Kuznetsova

Ai slips out of the Top10 but manages to win the Tier III Japan Open - as does Jenny unable to defend her tournament results from last year - her better results include 4Ra at the US Open.

depending on injuries of course:

1. S. Williams 2. Henin-Hardenne 3. Davenport 4. V. Williams 5. Clijsters 6. Mauresmo 7. Capriati 8. Myskina 9. Petrova 10. Sharapova/Dementieva/Kuznetsova/Rubin/Zvonareva.

Unless Ai Sugiyama steps it up I don't see her in the top 15.

I don't see a player catching Henin in the near future, unless she bombs and someone wins the remaining 3 slams and most of the tournies she plays (Ya hear me Venus ) SO here are mine

1. Justine Henin Hardenne
2. Serena Williams
3. or 4. or 5. Kim Clijsters (I think she might miss a lot of the year )
4. or 5. Lindsay Davenport
5. or 3. Venus Williams, But I think she could be higher and will be once 2005 starts, but she could go on another 2000 runs, in which i would put her at 3.
6. Amelie Mauresmo (She won't play more than 16 tournies this year, which is a shame)
7.-10. can be any combination of players
Myskina
Kusnetsova
Petrova
Zvonareva (sp)
And I think Sharapova will move to around 11-15 by years end. I think she'll get to the quarters at Wimby, and US Open and make a 4th round at FO.

I think Justine will probably Win FO, if she is healthy, if not I would say Venus or Serena (I know I am biased)
Wimbledon sorry but Venus rules, She should at least make the finals again, and hopefully would win. Although I think Lindsay could make a run to the SF, FInal and could win, but she would need luck.
However at the US Open it could be a bunch of people: Venus, Serena, Lindsay, Justine or Kim.

For my Fav Vee if she gets it fully back:

I think Venus will win Warsaw, SF or F in Berlin, QF or maybe SF at FO, Win or F wimby, Win of F Stanford depending who is playing, not play LA, win Acura, Silver at olympics maybe be gold, SF or F at USO (she has never not reached the SF remember), and SF at Moscow if she plays, win Zurich and then could SF or F or win at the season ender.

San Diego is not a Tier I tournament.

It is this year, but I don't see LD beating Venus and Serena out for the title.

1. Justine (I really don't see Kim taking it from her, and she is really the unly one who could)
2. Kim (She'll skip the French but win her first slam later in the year, and defend her YEC title.)
3. Lindsay (Lindsay will make the SF of the remaining slams, but pick up big points during the Fall Indoor season, where she has nothing to defend, and be the runner up at the YEC.)
4. Serena (Finals at US Open. Steady semis and finals during the year. Her big comeback still to come in 2005.)
5. Mykina (Strong showings at all the remaining slams and captures some indoor titles.)
6. Amelie (The rankings slide starts on clay where she will have trouble to defend her big points, but she will rebound with a good showing at Wimby. But, her summer will be dismal and she will have a hard time defending her indoor points.)
7. Petrova (She'll do well at the slams and have steady showing all year, causing a few big upsets along the way.)
8. Dementieva (Steady all year. Nothing spectacular.)
9. Venus (Not great results until Wimbly, where she will make the semis. A great summer, getting to a few finals and capturing a title, she'll break into the top 10, but will have a poor indoor season and be upset early at the YEC.)
10. Zvonareva (She will have a big win again at RG and reach the semis there, but will not do well on grass, or the hardcourts. But indoors will help her break into the top 10, and she should win a Bali or Shanghai type tournament.

Notable outs: Capriati will only make the Round of 16 at a slam, and will end the year just in the top 15. Ai will be ranked around 12, not having any good results until summer. Chanda will be floating around somewhere in the top 20, but will be hurting when her Madrid, Eastbourne, Bali and Shanghai points come off.

Others: Mary Pierce will be top 20, making the quarterfinals of RG and Round of 16 at US Open. Seles will make a successful return, and make it to the QF of the US Open, before announcing her retirement at the end of 2004.
