Who will be next to break into the Top 10 in 2013?

In 2012 we saw 2 players breaking into the Top 10 (Kerber & Errani). In 2011 there were 2 (Kvitova & Petkovic). In 2010 there were 3 (Li, Schiavone & Stosur). In 2009 also 3 (Azarenka, Wozniacki, Pennetta). Who will be next to break into the top 10 in 2013?

These are the 9 highest ranked players who have never been in the top 10.

14. Maria Kirilenko
15. Dominika Cibulkova
16. Roberta Vinci
17. Lucie Safarova
18. Julia Goerges
19. Kaia Kanepi
20. Ekaterina Makarova
21. Varvara Lepchenko
22. Yanina Wickmayer

Year End Top 10 or 1 week Top 10?

Re: Who will be next to break into the Top 10 in 2013?

I have already made my predictions on this in another thread. But I can make them again here. I saw two players will crack the top 10 for the 1st time in 2012, this being typical of the last few years on the tour. I also believe those two players will come from outside the current top 20 and won't be anyone on this poll list. So my vote will go to other.

So which two players from outside the top 20 do I think will make the top 10 next year? I honestly don't have a clue. It is very wide open. But I do think there is good chance those two players will make themselves known early next year, just as Kerber and Errani did this year. So we need to keep an eye on which players from outside the top 20 get off to fast starts next year to see where our next top 10ers are coming from is my guess.

I think it will be some big surprise such as Robson, Stephens or even Hsieh. However, I voted Safarova. If that girl clears her head and plays at least in every third match like she played in Fed cup, she will be in spot 9/10 very soon.

If any of the three listed happens I think TF will rage out.

Can't even see one of them making the top 10 next year tbh.

No thanks. I just can't see these 2 in the top 10 next year. From the players outside the top 20, I can only see 1 or maybe 2 of these 4 making the top 10 next year. It's still unlikely though but I believe they have the best chance to make the top 10 among the 20-50 ranked players next year.

Shvedova
Barthel
Lisicki

Re: Who will be next to break into the Top 10 in 2013?

Well, Robson and Stephens are surely good enough to be top 20, but I can see them reaching top 10, if not in 2013, then in 2014. Now Hsieh - I only wrote her name because she is already top 25 and I cannot explain how (then I remember that she won 2 tournaments this year), so this girl is obviously there, but we are mostly putting her aside.

Errani seems to be so far the only weak spot among Top 10 so only one newcomer possible
Vinci, Ula Radwamska or someone of Petrova-Zvonareva-Kuzzy type(back)
