I think they can regain the top 5 again though - LIndsay's knee injury may hurt her movement, but she isn't known for winning matches based on her court coverage anyhow - so I dont think it will kill her game.
Martina Hingis, on an off year stil does better than anyone not named Venus, Jenn, Serena, etc. So I think she will get into the top 5 again.
people like Tee Rexx are just wishful thinking.
They've been saying that Martina would fall out of the top ten for years now .
Lindsay came back last year in a good shape. Probably she can do ir again this year, and gain more points in the begining of the next season, but she also has to defend all her titles this year.
Martina is a mistery yes, we don't know if she will be ok after the operation, and when will be she able to play again.
I think they can improve their ranking and stay in #4 to #7, but not to the top spot. Venus, Serena, Justine, Kim and Jennifer are the top 5 for a long time
If I had to put my money on one of them to be number 1 again, I would bet on Lindsay. After all, she's struggling with an injury, while Martina is struggling with her game. She's less intimidating than Lindsay right now.
At the same time? Unlikely. Can lindsay make it to #1 and Martina to #2 at SOME point? Yes.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
