Karolina is about to turn 20, is she ready for top 10?

She is quite talented, but she only has 1 top 10 win in her career against Venus in Wimbledon.
She has upset quite a few players when she started outside top 50 this year.
And she is quite justified as a top 20 player, but is she good enough for top 10?

Yes, #8 as a #3 seed. Controversial loss.

she needs some more top 10 wins before she can be ready for the top 10 herself I reckon.

Also

she needs consistency

Sugiyama was #11. But I did miss Dokic's loss, so make it 2.

her ranking was based pretty much solely on her zurich final, and now those points have come off she is ranked where she deserves to be, well actually she might deserve to be a bit lower
btw im not a jelena hater, i think its really sad, im just telling the truth

her performances over the last 2 years have been so substandard.

She was quite good in 2002 where she reached #4

Top 10 is very crowded and in ranking terms the players in the low teens are effectively top 10 too. Looked at the other way around the queue for the top 10 probably already includes Patty, Venus, vera, nadia, and elena B. . Karolina needs a few big wins to jump through the teens in the rankings but she also needs some players to fall out if you want her literally in the top 10.
