I think in the same place she is... until she boosts up her serve and start winning slams... sadly by then Sharapova will already be unstoppable...

I think she will drop to about 11 or so. I think that if Venus & Serena can become healthy and I think Kuznetsova, Sharapova, & Zvonaverva will move slightly ahead of her. Unless she greatly improves her serve, I don't see her going any higher.

I say top 20 that's inbetween 11 and 20 by the way. I'd like her to stay top 10 though.

I hope top 5.
She will defend only RG and Miami final, no other points to lose in that part of season.

MARIE!

Best luck to:
Nadia - Jennifer - Amelie - Marion - Tati - Serena - Alicia
Venus - Anastasia - Elena B. - Elena D. - Vera - Svetlana - Nicole
Karolina - Ai - Jelena D. - Virginie - Francesca - Nathalie - Chanda - Flavia

yeah but that is the kind of player she is. She never has consistent results. She has always been a hot or cold, hit or miss player. However, her big clutch results should keep her between 6 and 10 for a good part of the remainder of her career.

She'll be in the Top 5 for sure! Kim will be finally entering her groove after this years lay off, but she'll be out of the Top 5. I'm not sure about Venus and Serena, but I expect them to both be in the mid/bottom half of the Top 10. Sharapova will finally be coming into her own, and Elena will have worked on her serve susbstantially. Amelie and Myskina I expect to both be at the top, Amelie having the occasional injury issue every now and then but producing stellar results when shes healthy. Myskina still consistent and holding steady. I expect the Top 5 to be Myskina, Mauresmo, Serena or Venus, Elena, and possibly Sharapova to round out the Top 5.

i would not be surprised if she stayed in top 7, but 11 to 14 is also good.

Top 7 definitely, maybe Top 5 (all dependent on this years off season and the fruits of her labour).

good luck Elena

I find her first round results scary. They've been occuring for a while now. I think she'll drop out of top 15.

I dunno, but really hope it will be the same as it is now, or it will get better
