If everyone was playing their best tennis possible.......

Its no secret the WTA top 10 has been a hot mess ever since henin retired. If every player on the tour right now was playing their best tennis possible who/should would the top 10 be.

Mine would go..

1. Serena Williams
2. Venus Williams
3. Maria Sharapova
4. Dinara Safina
5. Ana Ivanovic
6. Jelena Jankovic
7. Elena Dementieva
8. Svetlana Kuznetsova
9. Anna Chakvetadze
10. Viktoria Azarenka

LUCIE SAFAROVA!!

Madison Brengle!!
Tsvetana Pironkova, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Lauren Davis, Petra Kvitova, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Timea Bacsinszky, Madison Keys, Kaia Kanepi, Klara Zakopalova, Agnieszka Radwanska

Elena Dementieva - Always my number 1 2012 FITD Olympic Gold Medal Champion!

Anna Chakvetadze and Viktoria Azarenka could probably be knocked down out the top 10 for other players.
