Will Daniela Crack the Top 10 Again in '06?

Who else thinks that it is only a matter of time before Daniela cracks the top 10 again? (She is pressing for 15th) When I look at the players ranked directly above her, I can realistically see her beating a few of these players- Schiavone and Dechy have to be easily outclassed by Hantuchova.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Jarmila Gajdosova, Melanie Oudin, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

it all depends on Daniela, herself.
especially her mentality.

I don't like to predict the future

I think its possible. If she keeps on getting to (and past) the QF stages of her events then there is a likelihood.

Defending points should be easy as there are only going to be a few times when big points drop off (after Doha, LA and Filderstadt/Stuttgart); other than that if she defends the points and does better, then she can.

All depends on others above her doing well/poorly.

Well, there are many young talents as well as solid top ten players out there right now. Consistency, luck of the draw, and many QF appearances or better will be the key points.

She is only like 170 or something points away from being in top 10. So its very realistic that she can go there

Daniela Hantuchova : WaKe uP FrOm thiS NiGhTmArE!!!!
Serena Williams : Finally BaCk to HeR DoMiNaTiNg SeLF!! WhEn ShE's PLaYiNg!

Jelena Dokic : ShOw uS WhAt yOu CaN dO!

She certainly doesn't belong in top10 if we take everyone in account; if she gets there that's another point (Suarez and Sugiyama also cracked into top10)

No way. (I hope i'm wrong though). Top Tenners do NOT struggle tremendously against players ranked in the 100's (Oblizer). She may win them, and a win is still a win, but a Top 10 should straight set these other girls consistently.

Where is the Hellz Naw Option?
Daniela has just not found a way to get around her high risk game to be top 10 at this time.
She is one of the few young players who is willing to come in at net and knows what to do there.
The issue is still her movement from side to side on the baseline.
She just isn't as quick there as Sharapova, Nicole, Jankovic, golovin, or even Ivanovic.
She needs to play better defensive tennis as well.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

Computer says no.

She ain't good enough anymore. Doesn't care how many lower tier titles she wins now, she simply isn't good enough to mix it with the big guns.
