If Sharapova wasn't in such hideous form I would say they should hand her the trophy right now.
Also with field like this Dementieva's got great chance to establish her place within Top-10 for several months at least.

You do realize this is a rather large field right?
75 of the top 91 are on this list, including over 20 of the top 30 and half of the top 10 (probably more once March rolls around, as rankings change.)
It's not Miami, but it never is.
