Really think Brady & Boserup could do it, the first half of the year especially
Also, Tormo is right there....

Maybe, but she'll have to do even better in the grass season than she did last year and also do decently in some tournaments on hard.

Re: How many players will break the TOP 100 for the first time in 2017?

My guess is 8 in 2017.

My best bet is Cabrera with a big leap up the rankings.

An unlikely surprise could be Arina Rodionova.

And then of course the more obvious ones.

Mertens is #99 in the live rankings after reaching the Hobart-final... Looks as if she is gonna crack it on monday
(not sure if some players in the AO qualies can overtake her).

The 1997-generation!!

I think it'll be slower than last year. I'll go with 11.

Cabrera hopefully

I've been waiting for Zanevska to get there and a few years ago it just seemed like a matter of time. Now though....
