You're pushing past that line between sanity and being checked into a mental hospital lately.

And this. She may start out a bit slower than last year but there's room for some improvement on clay for example. She'll take AO or USO and end up #1 or #2 also depending on Serena's performance this year.

Why does everyone have to be so mean? I am such a nice poster....... y'll are just insecure
Fair enough, at least you gave reasons for how that would be possible. But even if all those mentioned players would surpass Vika in the ranking she would be ranked between 5-10. So please explain how it is reasonable that she will drop out of top 10, as you've mentioned in the OP ("but me thinks princess vika will drop out of top 5 next season and possibly top 10.").

Which has nothing to do with the topic of this thread, but okay, thanks for letting us know.

Why? Everyone here thought it would be just a matter of time before Wozniacki won a Slam, and now is getting more and more dubious It was just a wild prediction based on nothing

MIRJANA LUCIC-BARONI ☢ | SAM STOSUR ☯ | MARTINA HINGIS ♚ | DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ✯ | MADISON KEYS ☢ | OLGA PUCHKOVA ❤

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend

Not true, I still feel Petra can beat her. They just haven't played last year.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Maybe in the future but if they had played last year H2H would have been fixed. No way Petra could have beaten her even once given the form she was in.

I am sure clay is not the only surface Azarenka needs to worry about.

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

It's likely that she won't have the start of the season that she had in 2013. It would be pretty remarkable if she managed to do something similar two years in a row, but I see no signs of an imminent demise.
The reason I singled out Azarenka is because she is "new" to this stage meaning that this was her first yr achieving world no.1 and grandslam......from recent history, recent winners like Kvitova, Stosur, Li Na, Schiavoni have all had let downs, not to mention the no.1s like JJ, Safina and Wozniacki. I think its fair to think that Vika will also have a big let down. Serena and Sharapova have been at this stage before so it is less likely that they would experience a fall although injury can affect anyone. And I am not even talking about Radwanska cuz i think she is also going to fall worse than Azarenka.

I do think Caro will be back in the top 5 so I hope you dont hate me too much.......

First off, thanks for at least considering my argument unlike most of the posters here
I do think most likely she will still be in the top 10. If she loses hold in the beginning of the year, it will be hard to sustain the level that she had this year and a mental let down could see her out of top 10. It is a possibility.......

Sharapova & Pavlyuchenkova

Petra in her AO and Stuttgart/RG would have high chances to beat Azarenka

I must have missed this amazing form. She struggled to be Kim who twisted her ankle against Na. Lets looks at who she beat during that great streak.......Radwanska, Sharapova, a hobbled Clijsters and Na. Everyone else she was expected to beat. She was extremely lucky with how the first part of her year turned out and kudos to her for taking advantage of it. Lets see if luck and form hold true for 2013. I too don't see her dropping out of the top 5, but I also don't see her being dominant also.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced
