Thumbs up Which top 20 star do you think can break into the top five in 2008?

Tatiana Golovin! I think that she got what it takes to break into the top five in 2008 after her two very close encounter with Justine Henin at both Stuttgart(in which she made Justine drop her first set {6:2} since Wimbledon)and Zurich which she lost 6:4 6:4 cause she couldn't capitalize on her 4:1 lead in the second set. Beyond that i think she can comfortably make it to the top five by the end of 2008

Agnes Szavay.

Golovin, Vaidisova, Hingis, Mauresmo and Szavay

I am still optimistic that Hingis would return to the tour, she is INNOCENT!

Re: Which top 20 star do you think can break into the top five in 2008?

Let me see.

If all of them plays a decent schedule ( enough tournament) I would see these players in top 5.

Justine
Maria
Serena- She needs to play more tournament.
Lindsay- She can only go up
Svetlana

Jelena- out- she has too many points to defend
Ivanovic- Out of top 5 too, too many points to defend.
Venus- out of top 5 -She needs to win even not in Grandslams.

QUEEN LINDSAY DAVENPORT

Golovin, Szavay & Vaidisova have the best chance to (re)enter top10, but I doubt they will break top5.

She's never been to top5 recently.

Ana Ivanović.

Venus and Szavay

SF

Edit: I would be remiss if I failed to mention that I think Davenport can crack the top five. She's not in the top 20, but I think she has a shot.

I'm not positive that it can happen but I would love to see Golovin crack the Top 5.

I love you, Dean. I love you, Kiera.

Re: Which top 20 star do you think can break into the top five in 2008?

I'd love to see Tatiana breaking top 5, but i don't see it happening.But I think top 10 is very possible.

I think that from top 20 players only Williams sisters and maybe Mauresmo (if she's back to form) have the ability to return to top 5. And maybe Chakvetadze because she doesn't need much to do so.

Of course out of top 20 Lindsay has a shot but it will depend on her schedule and draws especially early in the season.

Lindsay Davenport
Venus Williams Jennifer Capriati
Angie Haynes Alicia Molik Mashona Washington Angie Widjaja Tati Golovin Chanda Rubin Marta Marrero Dani Hantuchova Ai Sugiyama Nathalie Dechy
Bremond Ivanovic Medina Garrigues Jackson Dokic Tu Craybas Domachowska Harkleroad Myskina Mattek De Los Rios Mauresmo Granville Tanasugarn Bartoli Osterloh Dulko Spears Loit King Keothavong Shaughnessy Erakovic Lee-Waters Pierce

Retired
Paola Suarez Gaby Sabatini Monica Seles Angelica Gavaldon Anna Kournikova Amy Frazier
Farina Elia Zuluaga Asagoe Grzybowska

I think Mauresmo will be back to the top 5 in 2008 and Nicole Vaidisova will join her.
I hope Shahar and Golovin will break into the top 10 in 2008.
