If JJ and Ana could get back ...

... to their levelof play while Kim and Justine were away, we could really be treated to the most depth top 10 since the late 90's, early 00's when we had Venus, Serena, Martina, Lindsay, Jennifer, Monica, Arantxa, Conchita, Anna Kournikova, Mary Pierce all battling.

Let's hope they do. Women's tennis needs another positive push!

Re: If JJ and Ana could get back ...

I can't wait for the Serbs to regain their form not to mention the Russians: Dinara, Elena, Maria, Sveta, Nadia, and even Vera and Maria K, to become contenders with the Williams and the Belgians
We also now have the Chinese girls who are contenders now, and I think in a few years time the tour would hopefully be at its peak (with the younger ones also improving: Wozniacki, Azarenka, Wickmayer, and Radwanska).

ARANTXA SANCHEZ-VICARIO...Tennis legend in body and heart!

1994, 1995 Australian Open Finalist, 1995, 1996 Wimbledon Finalist
4- Time Olympic Medalist, 5-Time Fed Cup Winning Team, Inducted into Hall of Fame in 2007!!!

Re: If JJ and Ana could get back ...

Yeah, I think with those two playing high quality tennis and Maria Sharapova back to her great level then the tour would be very entertaining.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

Re: If JJ and Ana could get back ...

Whether you love them or hate them, you got to admit that the Serbs are great for the WTA when they're doing well. Anybody who says otherwise is kidding themselves.

Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.

Re: If JJ and Ana could get back ...

A solid top 10 player and competetive in slams is something I would be happy with. Fun Fact.
Ana Ivanovic- 12 weeks as #1, 1 GS, 3 Slam finals.
Andy Roddick- 13 weeks as #1, 1 GS, 5 Slam finals.

Re: If JJ and Ana could get back ...

It looks like the dark years of the WTA are finally over - Kim, Justine and Maria will be great assets to the top 10 once they get there (which is only a matter of time). It's hard not to see JJ getting back to some kind of form soon, but Ana is still a mystery for me. IF she could get back there, the worlds elite would look pretty damn impressive.

The ideal top 10 would include; (in no particular order)
Serena
Venus
Clijsters
Henin
Sharapova
Kuznetsova
Dementieva
Ivanovic
Jankovic
*youngster* - probably Azarenka

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

I think Caro will be top 10 for most of her career (if she stays injury free). But I'm not sure if including her in the "ideal" top 10 is suitable.

Kuznetsova

Please don't compare Roddick to Ivanovic. Roddick's "slump" saw him briefly drop out of the top 10 for a handful of weeks, I believe never falling out of the top 15. Plus it happened many years after his maiden GS title, not immediately after he won his like Ivanovic.

I would love to see Ana back and playing to her potential, however. Her current state of tennis is simply atrocious and really not fun to see especially from a girl with that much talent!
