Re: Will Hantuchova Return to the Top 10?

Nope, I'd like to see it happen but I think there are too many players better than her.

I just hope she wins another title so that her devoted fans can be rewarded. Plus it would be nice for Daniela as well.

Depends.

If she finds consistency and remains calm in the big situations, yes.

If not, then no.

Depends on whether she tries to hit drop shots when serving out sets/matches.

Needs to be more consistent..and she has to not be anorexic anymore(I know that was mean) if she is to make it there again.

Re: Will Hantuchova Return to the Top 10?

But in previous years did she have any signs of showing she was capable of returning to the top 10? Zurich was not a fluke by any means. Had she been able to play Mauresmo in the semifinal, she more than likely would have won that match instead of just gotten a walkover. She beat three top 10 players in her last two events; that has to count for something. (I'm not counting Linz; she had to retire.)

She's improved since 2005, in which she improved from 2004. I enjoy her presence on the tour--she isn't a very dangerous player, but she plays well, even if she has many mental issues. The top 10 is so crowded that I can't see her getting back soon, only her first few tournaments will tell. But if she continues playing well, then of course she can come back to the top 10. I'd like to see her make another Slam quarterfinal next season.

Re: Will Hantuchova Return to the Top 10?

No. The top ten is already crowded. Of the current 11-20 ranked players, Hantuchova isn't even among the best five. Too many players are coming up the ranks to the top 10/15, I doubt she'll remain in the top 20 for much of next season. She just doesn't have the weaponry needed.
