Your Ideal top 20.

In a perfect world...who would your top 20 be? And this should be at least somewhat realistic...Jamea Jackson shouldn't be in the top 20 even if she is awesome. Give a top 20 that you would be in love with that could almost happen somewhat recently. Mine:

1. Henin-Hardenne
2. Mauresmo
3. Davenport
4. Sharapova
5. Kuznetsova
6. Zvonareva
7. Clijsters
8. Sprem
9. Rubin
10. Capriati
11. Frazier
12. Pierce
13. Dechy
14. Kostanic
15. Hantuchova
16. Loit
17. Golovin
18. Martinez
19. Petrova
20. Smashnova-Pistolesi

See, not necessarily too possible, but at least somewhat realistic.

What are yours?

Sure they deserve to be, but in my IDEAL top 20 they wouldn't be there. I'm just saying all the players you put in should be realistic.

No he shouldn't! All the players he mentioned are either currently in the top 20 or within reach of it! You're just being ridiculous!

I do not like the williams, but you cannot just leave them out of the top 20 can you?

Well, it's possible that they could fall out of the top 20. Obviously not this year because they have no points to defend, but you never know what will happen! This time next year they might be struggling big time and be about 30 in the world!

This is for next year, assuming that LD has retired (otherwise I would need two no. 3s )

1. Maria Sharapova
2. Serena Williams
3. Justine Henin-Hardenne
4. Kim Clijsters
5. Venus Williams
6. Amelie Mauresmo
7. Jennifer Capriati
8. Elena Dementieva (with a bigger serve)

from 9-20 in no particular order:
Chanda Rubin
Daniela Hantuchova
Jelena Dokic
Karolina Sprem
Vera Zvonareva
Anastasia Myskina
Nicole Vaidisova
Ai Sugiyama
Mary Pierce
Patty Schnyder
Meghan Shaughnessy
Tatiana Golovin

So out from the top 20 would be:
Nadia Petrova
Svetlana Kuznetsova
Paola Suarez
Francesca Schiavone
Anna Smashnova-Pistolesi
Silvia Farina Elia

That is delusional. Sorry, but they are amazing. 7 or 9 tournaments and already in the top 20. They are fixtures in the top ten for sure.

It's not delusional! It's possible! Not probable, though! but definitely possible!
