Who Is Most Likely To Break The Top 8 By The End Of The Season?

I have compiled a list of players who i believe have every chance of doing it if they focus on their abilities.

I wouldnt mind a few different players in the end of year championships, i hope that players like bartoli, schynder, petrova and hanthucova dont make it this year, not because i dont like them but their styles are no match for the true heavyweights anymore.

Players like tati, radwanska and Agnes have more exciting tennis styles that really could trouble the likes of henin, kuzzie, pova and william sisters.

I vote for Tati, she is a player that can trouble and beat the best.

I didnt include vaidisova because i think she will actually crack the top 8 this year, no questions for her.

I want people not to take form that seriously into account here, i kind of want you to predict based on your belief in each player on really can do it.

Ugh the way Agnes is playing right now, she's not going anywhere but down. I hope she picks it up, and soon!

I hope Vera. But she tends to wilt in bigger moments, like when she actually made the YEC.

i dont think any of them will this year, maybe radwanska but it will be more likely next year. i think the top 10 is pretty secure right now, bartoli is looking like she will leave after wimbledon, but i think lena d has that spot sewn up. i suppose serenas spot is in doubt but i'd imagine she will pick up some big points somewhere in the year.

Re: Who Is Most Likely To Break The Top 8 By The End Of The Season?

The season is still early so anything can happen, but from your list I think Radwanska has a shot if she can win a couple Tier 2/3 tournys. Szavay is inconsistent so I'm not counting anything higher than a top 15 for her. Honestly, the only players I think have a real chance at Top 8 are Daniela H and Nicole V (mainly because they're so close already).

Oh yes, and Serena Williams could and should more back into the top 8 (provided she plays).

Re: Who Is Most Likely To Break The Top 8 By The End Of The Season?

Radwanska, Szavay, Golovin and Zvonereva are all in with a chance. I do think at least one and possibly two of these four could make it. Of the four Aga is the most likely. Staying healthy for the rest of the year will be crucial. None of those players has a chance if their season is even mildly interupted by injuries. Staying fit will be a challenge particularly for Golovin and Zvonereva.

Too hard to predict. You will get different results each time of the year depending on who is in form. If Peer suddenly has a very good clay court season people would vote for her and then for all we know she could have a sucky american hard court season and won't get even one vote.
