Legitimate Top 10

Ok so there may have been talks of this before but who do you feel being in the top 10 would make it "legitimate". I dont think we have had a "real"/tough top 10 since the late 90s/ealy 00s. Like the men right now have a legitimate top 4/5.
Base this off SEEN/SHOWCASED talent and ability. Not form or potential or even hype
In no order: Serena,Venus,Maria,Ana,Dinara,Jelena,Svetlana,Elen a D,Victoria and Nicole/Li
I'd say the lower half (5-10) would be Venus,Sveta,Jelena,Ana and Vika
Then i'd say players like Caroline,Vera,Aga,Sania,Tatiana,Marion,Flavia,Nadi a and Daniela would round out the top 20...........again i DONT base this off current form or even potential,but off overall talent and ability

Re: Legitimate Top 10

I don't what you're trying to say at all. Is this what you want to be the TOP 20?
