Same for dementieva. One good tournament does not mean you are going to be top 5.

Re: Predict The Top 20 At The End Of 2008.

i doubt patty will be top five. top ten, i could see. but not top five.

and manatee, she's had three good tournaments this year (rome, san diego, linz). and i guess you could count wimbledon, just because it was so unexpected.

Re: Predict The Top 20 At The End Of 2008.

I wish Patty will be top 5 next year.. But.. It's not gonna happen..
Any way, I dont know, I think the top 5 won't be changed too much. Maybe Sharapove will back there and Kuzzy will go out but that's it.
I also think Aga will break to the top 20 (And befoe Paszek and Azarenka!)

Henin, Schnyder, Jankovic, Aga Radwanska, Cornet

Re: Predict The Top 20 At The End Of 2008.

No order: Petrova, Safina, Dementieva, Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Chakvetadze, Henin, Mauresmo, Vaidisova, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Szavay, Golovin, Peer, Safarova, Li, Hingis, Hantuchova, both sisters.

Although I wouldn't be surprised if either sister left the top 20 if they're injured again, same with Li. The rest should be locks for the top 20 if Hingis doesn't retire. No idea about Schnyder being top 20 next year. She can still play great tennis but she can't stay top 20 next year on two finals, semifinal, and quarterfinal alone.

I will also be interested to see if Radwanska, Azarenka, and Paszek can be top 20 fixtures next year as well. Paszek is probably too young, but the other two I wouldn't be surprised.

Li was injured for much of 2007, unfortunately. She was on the verge of a major breakthrough this year, so she's another wildcard. If she doesn't take too long in coming back to tip top shape, then she should be a top 20 certainty.
