Where do you think Sharapove will be ranked at the end of the season?

I would love to say she will reach the no.1 but that would be a bit of a stretch... but realistically she has a great chance of breaking in the top 3 and my prediction goes even further: no.2

Hopefully Top 5. The ranking numbers, and Age Eligibility Rule make it difficult for her to do more.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

I think she will win San Diego, New Haven, Tokyo, Seoul, Tokyo, and the Year Ending Championships in addition to losing the finals of the US Open to LD. Therefore, top 3 is very likely.

Well she has only a few points to defned at the USO, and she will probably make it to the end of the year championships, where even winning one match gets you some nice quality points. I think she will go up to around 5 or 6 by the end of the year.

Great chance to become #2 .......
Yes, she does have a chance to win US Open, and yes I do like her.
But this is going too far.....
She is lucky if she can get into top 5.

I think she should reach no.2 at least....I mean if you win san diego, the Open and the YECīs, that alone is beacoup de points, then add a title her or there during the fall and voila...even no.1 ainīt out of reach. Watch out for next year...itīs gonna be GRAND SLAM time baby!!

She will gain a lot of points in the US Open for sure as she has none to defend as she only reached 2nd round last time. Maybe 2nd by the end of the year. Anywhere in top 5 would be ok.
