I think Stosar has shown some good signs of returning to form. I would expect her to finish the year ranked somewhere between 40 and 75, probably closer to the later.

As for 2nd place in should be down to the wire between Karatancheva, Dokic and Groenefeld. All should come close to finishing near the top 100 mark.

Stosur almost for sure.

Not saying she had it easy, but her comeback is much less complicated than the other players for various reasons.

i voted for sesil because shes putting in such hard work already and working her way up from nowhere to inside the top 200 in 6 months which is very good. if she keeps up the work ethic and plays as often as she is she should be near the top 100 by the us open.

Re: which one of these "comeback queens" will be the highest ranked at the end of '08

I think it will be Stosur almost certainly, although she is in a different situation to all the others.

Stosur never really left the game entirely. She never fell out of the Top 200, meanwhile the rest have gone off into tennis oblivion for a period of time, and are coming back from nowhere. Excluding Stosur - I think Groenefeld, Dokic and Karatantcheva could all finish the year ranked from 80-150.

Stosur has shown great signs of form. I'd expect her to re enter the Top 100 in the next few months and perhaps even get close to Top 50 by the year's end. She has almost nothing to defend after Wimbledon.

Stosur's situation is completely different from other girls, she shouldnt be included in this poll at all. I voted Dokic

P.S Stevenson should be on the list, she is coming back forever !!

Stosur for sure - she has a protected ranking and has had the most impressive win over peer at Roland Garros.... though Dokic and Groenefeld should be in the top 150 by years end

Re: which one of these "comeback queens" will be the highest ranked at the end of '08

The funny thing is after i saw that Groenfeld won yesterday, i was going to start a poll on which comback queen would qualify for the US Open. But i would have added Stevenson, Sprem, Mamic and Pierce.

Re: which one of these "comeback queens" will be the highest ranked at the end of '08

Date'Krumm's "comeback" isn't a full-blwon effort like the others so it's not really a fair comparison.

I hope Dokic gets back.

Also, Li Na is coming back but she'll quickly move back up I'm sure.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Re: which one of these "comeback queens" will be the highest ranked at the end of '08

Stosur of course, and then Jelena.

The fact is, Sesil never had a massive injury or big psychological problems, she just got caught cheating. If she was so good, she should have been tearing up her opponents from the word go, but she's *only* 193 which suggests that she was quite overrated.
