Sharapova | Jankovic | Pavlyuchenkova

I think Ana will be holding all the top 10 places.
(but only if Demented decides to withdraw in the meanwhile)

In no particular order:

Ivanovic, Jankovic, Venus, Kuznetsova, Safina, Wozniacki, Halep, Pavlyuchenkova, Cirstea, Azarenka

Sharapova will be ushered out by her shoulder and Serena will be semi-retired/uninterested.

You guys don't think de Brito is going to make Top 10 by 2012? I'm surprised.

I think Venus will be playing doubles only at the London Olympics.

Ivanovic
Sharapova
Kusnetsova
Vadisova
Jankovic
Venus
Serena
Safina
Zvonereva
Radwansaka

2012 is only 3 seasons away. I don't see much changing in the next 3 or 4 years, especially considering these girls are all still in their late teens and early twenties. Serena and Venus will be the oldest girls but they will still be in the mix I believe. They are still here 12 years on and winning slams. They have a good few left in them and the Olympics will be a major motivator for both of them.

So then what word suffices for Graf, who through 1987 to 1993, played 26 slams and reached 21 finals (won 14), the semi-finals three times, the quarters twice. Not once in that period did she lose earlier.

I think Kleybanova can get to the top 10 by then. She is a big talent imo.

I think someone is going to bow out due to an early retirement a la Justine in the next 3 years, the best bet is probably Sharapova.

I would be extremely surprised if Serena is still playing in 2012. I've always seen her as the sister who was more ambitious outside of tennis.
London,Wimbledon,Olympics at Wimbledon=Venus. And if Venus is retired, I can see her coming out of retirement just for this

People act like 2012 is 10 years from now.

Serena will still be playing tennis and she'll be there.

Well it's in 4 years, Venus will be 31/32 and Serena 30/31...and seeing they are always injured these days...you can't be surprised that people think they will be retired or that they won't play alot...
