If she's healthy, gets back her 2009 level then she can.

She's only still 27. I don't see why not. She has all it takes. It just depends on how motivated she is and of course, her fitness. I miss her

Hopefully she can get back to lower end Top 10 by end of 2013 but, as previous posters, really depends how much motivation there is.

Re: Can Sveta move to top 5 again?

If she can stop choking and start beating the likes of LaBorz she would stand a chance (i'd say top ten rather than top 5 though). Otherwise no.

She'll win her next slam in 2014! Following the 5-year gap rule of course .

Re: Can Sveta move to top 5 again?

As for this,Sveta will always be some of the best all-court players.But her mentality is so fucked up right now,so I don't think she will ever be a top 5 player. Top 15 maybe

Re: Can Sveta move to top 5 again?

She needs to stop spinning to ball so much and start going for winners again by using her great forehand. Unless she does that, she won't be back in the top 10 in my opinion.

Re: Can Sveta move to top 5 again?

Can she? Sure.

I think she'll have a totally left field Mary Pierce-like resurgence in a couple years before fading into the sunset.

Re: Can Sveta move to top 5 again?

I don't think so, she can get back in the top 10 eventually if she gets motivated and in form again but the top 5 is kinda tough to be at the moment, the top 3 are a safe bet to stay there for a while and with the chance that Sveta would draw one of those 3 early it's a slim chance for her to make big progress in a year at least. Unless she gets lucky with her draw I don't see her in the top 10 next year...after that it's hard to say, she sure has top 10 talent

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki
