Very tough. I think the top 5 can actually rotate any of a number of ways in my top 10.
Justine could easily slip into the top 5 as well, and I may change my mind about Henin based on her performance at the French.
The reason I put Martina so low is that she will have to play an awful lot of tournaments to keep up with the top few.
At the moment, she can't seem to compete with the top 3 on my list, so winning tournament that they are involved in will be tough.
But if she can continue to consistantly make Quarters and Semis at all the tournaments she enters, she many hold onto a top 5 spot.
I put Daniela 5th because I think she can grow into almost the best....number 1, but I don't want to jump the gun....putting her in front of Martina will make for enough interesting conversation as is....without actually putting her above the others into No. 1, I'd be killed for that...hehehe.
I only made a top 8 because there is just no other obvious contenders, the rest are on par with each other or injured at the moment.

In no particular order:

Jelena (?)

This is assuming that Lindsay isn't playing...

Monica announced her official retirement on February 14, 2008. What a sad day! I'm proud to be a Selestial and I admire Monica for her fighting spirit and her character.
The tennis world has lost one of the greatest players of all time! Have a wonderful post-tennis life!

Arantxa, you will always be in my heart. Thanks for all the great matches you gave us and for just being a wonderful person on and off court.
All the best for your future!

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I admit to shameless bias in this, and favouritism but I don't care (there's a least of modicum of judgement in there):

1) Venus Williams
2) Martina Hingis
3) Serena Williams
4) Jennifer Capriati
5) Monica Seles
6) Justine Henin
7) Kim Clijsters
8) Jelena Dokic
9) Elena Dementieva
10) Amelie/Anna K/Daniela

I've left Davenport out of calculations because of her injury. She'll get back in the top 3 eventually, but I don't know when she'll be back playing at her best, so I can't predict a ranking for her in a year's time.
