Is it just me or is the Top 5 actually starting to look like a Top 5.

With Venus entering the top 5 we've now got Venus, Serena, Safina, Dementieva, and Jelena.... now if only Sharapova can come back and knock Safina out...

Venus Ebone Starr


Serena Williams

Madison Keys

Sharapova or Mauresmo can knock out JJ and the top 5 would be

Its the best we can get but we definitely need Sharapova in there. Right now only 2 of the 5 have won a grand slam, and of the 3 who didn't...its head case city.

Safina? Safina's last 52 weeks have been some of the most impressive on tour currently...

Safina and Jelena both deserve to be there.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Agreed, Dinara needs to go. Hopefully as Maria gains points and Dinaras points come off from Claycourt season onwards, she'll be replaced

A very good top 5 would be Venus, Serena, Mauresmo, Sharapova and one of the Serbs.
