Come on everyone - Elena deserves to be at #5.
She has had an excellent start to the year, granted she hasn't won a title or got to a final but she has to two semi finals (one Tier 2, one Tier 1), reached two quarter finals (both tier 1s) plus the Australian Open 4th round (and she should have taken Schynder out after leading 4-0 in the second set).
So far this year she has beaten the likes of Schynder, Kuznetsova, and Golovin.
From last year to still be at no.5. she got to two slam finals (where she beat Mauresmo, Davenport, Capriati and Zvonareva to get there!!!!!!). She also reached the SF in three American harcourt events, titled in Hasslet and got to the final in Moscow.
All these are great acheivements and we should be congratulating Elena for getting to the Top5 not laughing at her when she is supposedly going to "fall". Well up until the French Open she doesn't have much to defend - only 100 points. I'm not sure what events she is playing but she can easily pick these points back up at one event and then at the others she will just be gaining. She won't be going anywhere from the Top10 at all as the point differences are so great - and besides if she doesn't get to the final I'm sure she can defend a huge majority of them!!!
Well Done Elena for all your acheivments and don't listen to all the silly comments.
