If you could pick one, who would you 'put" back into the top 20??
There are obviously alot good players on tour who talent-wise should be in the top 20 but because of injuries,fitness,confidence,belief they aren't.....so if you could put one player back into the top 20(kind of giving the a second chance in essence),who do you think would benefit most from it(ie push top players,benefit from a higher seeding,win titles and make things interesting).
I for one would love for Anna Chakevtadze to have more chance in the top 20,she is playing much better tennis nowadays but seems to get injuried just when she could be due for a nice run(last fall, Dubai).If she could keep her head straight i feel her game could def trouble majority of the top 20 and given the current state of womens tennis she could even make a few deep runs at majors and push close to the top 10.
I think it would also be interesting if Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Dinara Safina were in the top 20(though with the latter i dont think she is ready for that level). Minus a hiccup at her last 2 slams(losing 75 in the 3rd at both the USO and OZ),Beth has been having a top 20-30 players resume since last summer: Qualifies for Montreal,wins her 1st round and lead Clijsters 64 41; Qualified and won her first round in New Haven,2rd at the Open,FINAL in Quebec;FINAL in her very next tour event Brisbane, brainfart in OZ and then Semifinal in Paris Indoors.....so she had made atleast the SF in 3 of her last 4 events as a player outside the top 50!
