Interesting proposition...

Let's say the William sisters regain their form and fight back into the top 20. And also, Tulyaganova makes a complete recovery. And, just for arguments sake, Daniliidou too. Which players do you see them replacing?

In other words, who are the weakest links in the top 20 and thereabouts right now?

Penetta...if she's even still in the top 20, would probably be one to drop...

Anna-Lena and Petrova. But Petrova will play well soon...So will Patty.
Anna-Lena is hopeless...
Pierce..will play better soon...too.
So only one place left- possible for one of those four

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

Pennetta has just dropped out of the top 20. She's at 21 at the moment.

Groenefeld most likely, but her form could pick up.
Hantuchova probably. Her results aren't consistent enough and she won't have many great tournaments either.
Pierce, though Pierce has plenty of opportunities to pick up points. It really depends when this "replacement" will occur. If it's in the near future, Pierce, yes, if much later, maybe not.
For the fourth choice, Li or Myskina.

How boring of me. I pretty much picked the bottom four in the top 20.

Really, any of the lower section could start slumping, though some of the more talented or more dangerous players might be able to get away with it more with some great results. Then again it is usually those type of players that slump, not the consistent ones (at least not to the same extent).

never going to happen, otherwise why not add smashnova, shaugnessy, zvonareva and suarez into the list - all had a time in which they were ligitimate top20 players with consistent form that troubled the greats, combining wins over just about the complete tour between them.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
