Yes Pavlyuchenkova nearly made the huge gap away which separated her from Top 19

Ka. PLISKOVA - E. SVITOLINA - E. VESNINA - A. PAVLYUCHENKOVA - T. BACSINSZKY
N. VAIDISOVA - D. HANTUCHOVA - T. GOLOVIN - A. BONDARENKO - A. SZAVAY - M. PIERCE

Who could have predicted that this sweet little girl would grow up and "destroy" the WTA?

Shame on you, Caroline Wozniacki. Shame on you.

Re: Just to make sure you guys are prepared...

I really don't care any more if she gets to No.1 or not. She's earnt it and performed consistently well but it doesn't mean I'll be rating her above the Williams sisters or the Belgians for the Grand Slams yet.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Sam Smith on Hlavackova

Nor should you. I really hope that Caroline can win some slams but until she does in most people's minds she will never really be considered one of the top players. January (and the Australian Open) can not come fast enough.

I think so too.

I'm just looking forward to TF going collectively nuts. Interesting times ahead.

She has a Beijing SF to defend though.

Well I actually think no matter how well she plays now, the AO is not the best slam for her. The surface suits more the powerful players and since it's so early in the season Caroline often lacks enough matches. As wee see now she's more dangerous when she's playing tons of Tournaments. And I'm sure Serena wants to prove that she's the real number 1 and if she's determined she'll kick Caro's ass. Not sure though about Roland garros, she could grab the title there.

Is this possible points after YEC?

No I just copied this week's rankings and Serena and Caro was the only ones I changed.

I don't necessarily think that Caroline will win in Australia but I do think she can make a deep run and hopefully get to the quarters and/or semis. Traditionally it has probably been the slam where she performs the worst and I expect her to do fairly well there this year.

Re: Just to make sure you guys are prepared...

Caroline is proving herself far more than Safina and Jankovic did. She has very similar game to Clijsters and both (probably) became number one before winning a major. VERY likely she will.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

If you look at her previous years, she pretty much doesn't get going before March .. Whatever the reason, its not good when one of the slams are in January and obviously something her team must be pondering how to change.
