Re: Your favourite #2 player who never became #1 is?

By far, 9 girls in tennis modern era were ranked #2, but never achieved spot #1. Four of them are still in the game, but do they have what it takes to be #1? Why #2 girls who already retired from tennis never were on the top? Who do you think had, or still has, most potential to be #1?

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

You sure? I think her momentum was in 2012, not sure if she can have it so close again. My bets are going in Kvitova's favour. Normally, it is just my opinion.

Radwanska is my favorite player of this group, but I think that Kvitova has a better chance to get to number one at some point. But I think it will be hard for either one of them to get past Azarenka in the rankings because she's more consistent than Petra and more likely to win slams or make slam finals than Aga.

Re: Your favourite #2 player who never became #1 is?

the last two still have a good chance to get to #1.

I'd probably pick Sveta.

Azarenka's consistency will be on a serious test in first months of the next season. Somehow, I feel she might begin struggling if she doesn't defend her AO title. The next thing, her first couple of matches against Serena and Maria will be so important, if she loses them...who knows, maybe she will not be so powerfull as she was this year.
