Hantuchova aims to return to Top 10 in 2012

Daniela Hantuchova says that her goal in 2012 is to return to the Top 10. The former Top 5-player has yet to reach the final of a major and finished the 2011 season ranked No. 24. "Ten years ago, I would be in the best shape on the entire tour. These days, everybody is prepared like this so it changes completely," the 28-year-old Hantuchova told Channel Asia. "I think as far as the finesse of the game (is concerned), it was much nicer before because you could see longer rallies and was really about we had more brains and more touch, there was more variety to the game. Now it's about whoever hits it hard."

tbh as much as i don't rate dani the bottom end of the top 10 is pretty weak with bartoli, petkovic and aga. dani if she schedules right and gets some luck along the way could be where they are.

I have no other faves, I just hate

She's been there before, she can get there again. It'll take some draws and luck and stuff but stranger things would've happened.

You know, I feel like she came up a lot this year and had big wins, and she's still 24. Looking at it though, she had some rather atrocious losses. A broken Safina, 1r losses at slams against Kulikova and Parmentier? What? Those are some damn good draws, and she couldn't capitalize.

Unlikely, but she has a chance.
She is one of the most talented players out there and has had a long and successful career.

She's been there before and I don't see why not again

If she can be more consistent and stay injury free I can see her finishing close to the Top 10 next year
