Will 2008 bring good fortunes for Sania Mirza? Can she become a top 10?

Will 2008 bring new hope for Sania Mirza? Will she become a top 10 in 2008? In 2007 she suffered multiple injuries and missed many crucial tournaments but still managed to hang on there in the top 30. She played an excellent us hard court season prior to the uso which saw her singles ranking jumped to a career high 27. She defeated some big names like Tatiana Golovin, Patty Schnyder, Safina, Martina Hingis, Bammer. But she couldn’t sustain the us summer form in the European indoors. In her career she has victories over Svetlana Kuznetsova, Marion Bartoli, Petrova, Li Na, Kirilenko. So can we expect a very good 2008 for Sania which she will start by participating in the Hopman cup!

Hmmm..

If she can stay healthy and injury free
top 20 is possible.
Don't think she will reach top 10 in 2008, but that will come later!

Top 10 is doubtful, there are too many players better than her. She should be able to establish herself as a top 20 player though.

Nope. I even wouldn't be surprised if she never gets to the top 30 again after this year. She's just too overhyped and loses too often to shitty players to stay ranked this high. She's too inconsistent to make a run a big tournament (like Bartoli) and doesn't play many tournaments to make up for this either.

She could be a Top 20 player, but not Top 10

This is my cool signature

top 10 would be very surprising.

i just want some consistency, and a very solid spot in the top 25.

to new beginnings.

Re: Will 2008 bring good fortunes for Sania Mirza? Can she become a top 10?

sanias weaknesses are on full display when she plays chakvetadze, she dosen't move well enough, dosen't serve well enough and has poor shot selection. so to make top 10 she would need to significantly improve these areas. i doubt she will improve them enough in 2008, but top 20 is not out of the question. if i was sanias coach i would get tapes of matches with chakvetadze as she is the best player on tour for exposing weaknesses. i would aslo recomend jj's coach get tapes of her matches with chakvetadze, as they show up her weak serves and lack of a killer shot.

Mirza is one of my faves, but like others had written, not enough depth or variety in her game. Not yet anyway.

That echoes my view. Top 10 seems realistic to me at some point but probably not next year. Sania is making slow and steady progress and I see no reason this should change for at least a couple more years perhaps more.

Top 20 is definitly reachable next year, I don't think top 10 though.

i thought saniapower was the most realistic of sania maniacs
top 20 at max that too if decides to do a jankovic during the clay season
as someone rightly said she cant even beat anna

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.
