Old Elite 4 not quite complete.

Venus still needs to get her ass in gear!

Serena won the AO
Kim won the March double
Justine won the first Tier 1 on clay

and they all beat Lindsay and a high Russian along the way.

Interestingly Maria Sharapova was only beaten by Serena and Kim. Justine lost to her.

I'd say Lindsay and Maria alongwith Kim , Justine and Serena are the new Elite 5

I'm not sure wether we should call Lindsay an elite player. She plays some amazing tennis, but when she faces Kim or Serena... it's just one step to far to grab that win.

The important thing is who will be in the elite group at the end of the year.

This is such a brand new year with players striving to come back, and everyone fighting for the top position. I think it will be a very exciting year. I can't wait to see how it will all sort out.

That's a bit harsh on Lindsay? Being unsure about Lindsay being an elite player. After all she is and has been the #1 player in WTA rankings. Singles and Doubles.

Thats a bit of a stupid comment

Lindsay could have won here this week except for her injury, the centre court was the best clay court for her game this year.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

It would be so awesome if Venus wins the French Open. She'll prove so many people wrong. SOOOOO many.

Really, don't even look at me...

Old 4? There only was an old four for a short time and one of the four was having problems then. Two followed by a different 2 surely? Look who Serena and Justine beat in their GS.

I would have thought Lindsay was part of the previous twosome before Venus and serena took over . In a top 10 where individual match ups really matter she is still very competitive with most of the players who matter.

Maria clearly belongs in her own group too. She's having a better year than anyone but Kim and has been doing it for longer.

Not sure how the other Russians fit in either. Each group replaced its predecessor when that group was injured or off form. The Russians at present are not performing but its far from clear that if they did start performing who they would be beating - Maria and Lindsay and Venus and Kim could all have had either less successful years or a harder time doing what they have if the top 10 Russians were playing at their 2004 level.
