I thought she would be #1 (if not for injuries, she still would be)
I thought she would be #2 (same reason)
I knew she would be in the top three, she's so consistent
She was still a force on the tour, I knew she'd be somewhere near the top 5
She has always been a favorite of mine, and I always considered her to be dangerous on tour. I definately thought she would be in the top ten. Who knows, when she officially makes her comeback, she very well may.
She really had a personal renaissance in the 2002-2003 offseason
There was a huge glass ceiling, preventing her from cracking the top 5, and without the injuries, she wouldn't have cracked it. However, she has stepped up the level of her play as of late.
She was good, not that great, but not bad
She had proven, to me at least that she belonged in the top ten, and if not for health issues, in my opinion, she would be in the top ten.
She had reached the Olympic finals, (no small feat) and while her play never impressed me, her fight did, and I figured she'd find a spot in the top ten.
My predictions are in order, so....two years ago, I thought the top ten (in numerical order), would be:
1. Serena Williams
2. Venus Williams
3. Kim Clijsters
4. Lindsay Davenport
5. Monica Seles
6. Justine Henin-Hardenne
7. Amelie Mauresmo
8. Jennifer Capriati
9. Daniela Hantuchova
10. Elena Dementieva
