Ranking predictions for 2012

Now that the new season is nearly upon us, I have done some predictions for the season ending rankings in 2012! Here is a summary of my predictions...

1. Petra Kvitova
2. Victoria Azarenka
3. Serena Williams
4. Sam Stosur
5. Maria Sharapova
6. Caroline Wozniacki
7. Andrea Petkovic
8. Agnieszka Radwanska
9. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
10. Sabine Lisicki

Biggest fallers - Li Na, Francesca Schiavone and Jelena Jankovic

Biggest climbers - Christina McHale, Carla Suarez Navarro and Mona Barthel

For anyone who is interested, all my reasonings can be found in my full blog entry in the link below in the post titled "WTA predictions for 2012".

I thought it would be cool to look back at the end of 2012 and see how close or wayward I was!!! What are your predictions for the top 10 and biggest fallers/climbers in 2012? Disagree with my picks?

Oh please, Jankovic can't fall lower than this. She will get it together and rise to the top with her new clothing sponsor in 2012
