What will the top 10 look like at years end?

Here is what it will look like in my opinion

1. Serena/Sharapova: it depends on what kind of shape they are both end towards the end of the year.

2. Serena: I just think that Maria has more energy right now.

3. Davenport

4. Amelie

5. Kim/Venus: Who ever is the more consistent after Wimbeldon

6. Justine

7. Kuztnetsova

8. Dementiava: Yes she has a lot of points, but I think she will loose earlier in tournaments now dew to the fact that Kim and Justine are back, and Venus is playing better. And it doesn't look like that serve is going to get any better.

9. Alicia Molik: she is going to get to the 16s consistently.

10. Myskinia: she has to many points to denfend at the French and at other tournaments.

I think Justine can possibly be back in the top10 as well. Since she has nothing BIG to defend really and she can compete with the best of them!

I agree with most of that, but regardless of whomever between Kim and Venus is the most consistent after July, they both should be in the top 5

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

I definately think that Kim is going to make the top 10 in there somewhere by the end of the year.

Proud supporter of

Kim Clijsters
Serena Williams
Venus Williams
Andy Roddick

Totally agree with this list. I think Maria will make it to number one simply because she plays more than Serena and has played extremely well for the last few months.

My Top 10 prediction:

1) Sharapova
2)Lindsay Davenport
3) Serena Williams
4)Mauresmo
5)Kim Clijsters
6)Kuznetsova
7)Dementieva
8)Justine Henin-Hardenne
9)Alicia Molik
10) Myskina

My reasons why....
Sharapova and Lindsay are just too consistent. Serena's lost this week really hurts her chances to get to number 1. She will have to win the French to catch up now.
Mauresmo is consistent but to expect her to have the year she had last year with Clijsters and Henin-Hardenne back is asking for too much.
Kim Clijsters has everything to gain now.
Kuznetsova will finally play well and do better at Roland Garros and Wimbledon than she did last year.
Dementieva is consistent enough most of the time and she is one of the biggest opportunist there. If someone is having an off day then she'll take advantage of it and their draw.
Justine has some points to defend but she seems to be playing well enough to get back in the top 10.
Molik is streaky. She'll have a good French and Wimbledon.
Myskina will have an off year for her but she'll find ways to win some matches.
Problem is her schedule was so hectic last year that she will lose points even if she does well.
Ex. Myskina will have to choose between defending her points at Sopot, Poland and San Diego, CA since this year they are the same week. Even if she happened to win one of them she would still lose some points.

you all are simply placing momo out of the top 10.... that's a little harsh isn't it????
she's a big girls!
plus, don't forget that if lindsay wins USopen - she'll retire.
JennyCap should return as well.
that said:

1. lindsay if she stays.
2. momo - and another missed slam final too.
3. serena - without another slam though.
4. sharapova - DUE TO INJURY. she's gunna hurt herself, you'll see
5. kuznetsova
6. kimmy
7. elena D
8. justine.
9. vera/nadia.
10. capriati hold to that top10 position, if she doesn't retire.
11 and 12 in case of americans retiring - russians battling strong - myskina, bovina, likhovtseva, vera/nadia (the on not in 9th), and perhaps even linetskaya or safina, depending on how they cope with clay.
moreover - russians will have 16 seeds by the USopen.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

I think Serena will be number 1, because I think she has the motivation to complete a Grand Slam. She is really pacing herself during her matches, and I have seen a lot of confidence in her as of late. I think she will catch fire around April and will go on like a 30 match win streak. so...she definately has more of a shot than anyone to completely dominate for a long period of time. so...she really could be YE #1

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
