For me Ula ( #15) Hsieh ( #18) and Robson ( #20) ... Ula has her chances in the beggining of a season .. she has nothing to defend ... maybe 2nd round of AO

Hopefully Suarez Navarro, Barthel and Shvedova... but I have my doubts

Don’t exaggerate. I am not the biggest fan of Ula, but she won with Bartoli in Brussels, with Lisicki in Birmingham (on grass!), with Pennetta in s’-Hertogenbosch, with Hantuchova in Carlsbad, with Barthel at the Olimpics, with Ivanović in Tokyo.
And her results would be even better if she had not have to play so often with top players: in 1st rd in Sydney she lost to her sister, in 1st rd in Copenhagen – to her BF Wozniacki, in 2nd rd RG – to Kvitova, in QF in Carlsbad – to Cibulkova, in 2nd rd of Olympics – to Serena, in 3rd rd of Cincinnati – again to Serena, in 3rd rd in Tokyo – to Kerber.

The other thing is that the slang term SZMUL is very insulting and shouldn't be used by civilized people also for it's obvious antisemitic overtone.

Paszek, simply because she has nothing to defend until grass season
Hsieh and Stephens, maybe Sorana if she can get her head in order.

But Top 30 definitely.

Shvedova. Even with her hideous choking she surely cant miss out on it considering shes defending pretty much nothing til Roland Garros.

Yeah i agree with that. She's been terrible lately but is still moving up the rankings. She'll be top 20 soon, because of the reason you stated. Nothing much to defend until Roland Garros

Shvedova-Muguruza-Garcia-Lisicki

Probably all of them, given how easy it is at the moment.

Re: Which players will break top 20 for the first time next year?

I doubt that Watson will move into top 20 in the next 12 months. I mean, she loses just as many matches against players outside the top100 as she wins against the top 40. 40-50 seems to be the right spot right now, so maybe she can tackle the 3x-high next year. She made a huge step last year and a profound one this year, but despite her consistency, she needs to beat big players to climb much higher now.

Hsieh is even more uncertain, she played a 100-ish schedule most of the time. No idea at all who she will fare with a top players schedule. She might hit the 20, but where will she go?

I have big expectations in next season from Petra Martic, Sloane Stephens, Laura Robson and Heather Watson. Also, Hsieh and Cirstea could be consistent in top 20.

The first time those have been used in the same sentence.
