No i genuinely think Caro will climb back up the rankings, but when Vika, Masha and Petra (even Aga) are in the equation, there's no way she'll end the year ranked 2. Unless the above stated all bow out in the early round of slams. Caro IMO will end about 6/7th

Ironically, Caro is the only one from the people you cited that beat Serena this year.

She can also beat them, next year won't be like 2012.

I don't think beating Rena automatically qualifies you as the no.2 ranked player, you just need to look at her 2012 slam results

QF 3R 1R 1R

that's where she needs to improve to even consider reaching those heights again

No it doesn't but she still achieve what others couldn't do. Of course, the contrary is also true (winning slams).

She has nothing to lose in 2013, she already lost her #1 rank in 2012.

What does Caroline having nothing to lose even imply? That she's gonna push even harder?

Give me a break!

Re: Challenge: Predict the Top 8 of 2013

Aww!! I love this compilation, goes to markedly differentiate the educated guesses between the real fans of the game vs the trolls ...of course the real fans almost always are spot on with their predictions. Great job

My own predictions made me but I wasn't far off on most.
