Next player into top ten

Sandrine Testud is ranked #10. She's 1100 points behind Justine Henin, who's having better results this year, RG not withstanding.
I don't see Sandrine moving up anytime soon.
Sandrine is 400 points ahead of her closest pursuer, Mauresmo.

3286 09 J.HENIN

2181 10 S.TESTUD

1784 11 A.MAURESMO
1692 12 D.HANTUCHOVA
1662 13 S.FARINA-ELIA
1545 14 E.DEMENTIEVA
1402 15 M.SHAUGHNESSY

Question 1) Will Sandrine be the next player to drop OUT of the top ten? Remember, Lindsay and Martina may not return for a while. If they both miss the USOpen, either could drop out first.

Question 2) Who's the next player to move INTO the top ten?

Question 3) WHEN will the next player to move INTO the top ten?

NOTE: Only Dementieva and Shaughnessy Mauresmo have PROVEN they can get into the top ten. (Pierce, Rubin, Majoli, Schnyder are all also young enough, and once were top ten.)

Volcana - has Shaughnessy ever been top 10? I thought her highest was #11 - do you mean Amelie?

Anyway, I say that it all depends on Amelie and that scatterbrain of hers. She's got very little to defend for the rest of the year, and has proved (albeit intermittently) that she has enough game to be top 5, if not top 3, and a genuine contender at each Slam. She's shown us very little of that this year, but if it returns, she'll displace Sandrine by the US Open.
Having said that, I can't see it returning that quick. Daniela H has very little to defend as well, and seems to be playing consistently well right now (if not consistently brilliantly - that will come). She could go a long way at Wimbledon. I expect her to be top 10 by the end of the year.
I have no idea about the maths involved if Lindsay and Martina both skip the US Open, but it seems that they could certainly fall below Sandrine. As for Justine, too many people have too many points coming off for her to be in serious danger.

AMELIE
Then Daniela

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

Leaving aside the currently hapless Anna K my favourite players are Amelie and Daniela. They are currently ranked 11 and 12. Aaargh. I want them both in the top 10.

Amelie should be a top 5 player, but she still seems in some kind of mental wilderness. I expect Daniela may prove to be just as good or even better, but it's early days.

I want Amelie back in the top 10 first. Dani can wait her turn. I'm sure one of them will do it by the end of the year. I don't think there's room for both (hmmm, that depends a lot on Lindsay and Marti's injuries). I can't see any other player getting there before them.

I'd say Amelie... I'm not really a fan, but her results are so frustrating-considering how talented she is... She needs to forget that hard courts are not her favourite this summer :P

sartrista7 - You're right. I guess I've been waiting so long on Meghann I'm starting to hallucinate.

DANIELA! she will go farther than Amelie at Wimby this year, and will prolly be in the TOP 10 very soon (especially with Martina Hingis and Lindsay Davenport SIDELINED and Sandrine Testud never playing well at the Slams).

Let's Go Lindsay!SHE'S BACK BABY!

Best of Luck To: Mary Pierce, Justine Henin, Monica Seles, Chanda Rubin, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina, Vera Zvonareva, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Haas, and Pat Rafter!
