Predict Li Na's ranking after RG 2012

Since winner her fluke maiden slam , Na has not won anything, let alone did anything notable. What would her ranking be after the French Open?

Re: Predict Li Na's ranking after RG 2012

#15 or #16 if she loses in the early rounds of French Open.

She might get back into top 10 later this year as she doesn't have many points to defend after French Open.

She makes the QF in every tournament she plays this year and probably for RG too, not bad results actually

Re: Predict Li Na's ranking after RG 2012

Can we stop already with the gloating obituaries of late-career slam-winners? Na might not be a Serena or a Venus, but she was, and still is, a very good player, and she deserved to win RG last year.

She should go pretty deep this week and has a decent chance of reaching the QF or better in Paris, so I think she'll be okay in terms of her ranking, even in the short term. She'll probably drop out of the top 10, but I don't think she'll go much lower than 12 or 13, and I expect her to be back to somewhere around or even above her current position within a month or so after that, because she's defending practically nothing in that period.

Re: Predict Li Na's ranking after RG 2012

Who cares? Na is actually having a good year especially if you discard the AO choke.

She's held her seeding at Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid, and possibly Rome(with a good chance to go further). After RG, she has literally nothing to defend.

If Na catches form, only 4-5 players can handle her off the ground.

Re: Predict Li Na's ranking after RG 2012

Even though I'll be very surprised if she defends the title, I do expect her to make the QFs and live up to her seeding. I don't feel like estimating the post-RG points but I'm guessing she'll stay at #8 or something. Bartoli is in for a huge drop so Li will be fine.

Re: Predict Li Na's ranking after RG 2012

Na will probably win Rome so I don't think it hurts her much after RG.

Re: Predict Li Na's ranking after RG 2012

Na is unpredictable. Did anyone expect her to win RG this time at last year? Last year, She lost to Petra with a scoreline like 3-6 1-6 and Sam with 6-7 0-6. And look at what she did in RG....

Re: Predict Li Na's ranking after RG 2012

Depending on how she does in Rome, she will be 9th seed in RG. One could say it may depend on the RG draw, but then again, she had one of the most terrible draws ever last year and still did pretty well there. Li is playing relatively solid, she is unable to beat the top players so far, but she was uncharacteristically consistent against lower ranked ones. She can make the QF in RG.

She'd drop to 13th place, but not much lower, mostly because competition in that sector is in a slump or injured or not really expected to do great things in RG, like Petkovic, Lisicki, Zvonareva, Kirilenko etc. pp.

I still remember there was a poll last year on which of the top8 seeds would lose first in RG, and she got the most votes. But then she was the last one standing in the tournament. I like when people counting her out as it is when she usually performs well.
