No no no no!!! Disagree with you!!
End top 10 2003:
1. Serena
2. Venus

3 Kim/ Amelie( if she comes soon enough out of the injury)
4. Amelie or Kim
5. Capriati ( too good, but must be more consistent)
6 Justine( for clay season only)
7. Daniela( one year away from greatness???!!)
8 Jelena( plays so many tournys she will rack up the points)
9. Monica( pitty, but cant keep it up consistenly with the top guns.)
10. Lindsay( if she learns to close out matches again!)

p.s.: if Martina returns from injury she drops Jelena out of the top 10.

it's okay... some of them are mostly wishful thinking in my part. but still, nothing is impossible.

Jelena obviously somewhere around #17, because she has way too much to defend.

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

2003 according to penguin:

1. Kim Clijsters (wins AO, masters and loses FO final, dominates Indoor tournaments, and has consistent results throughout the year)

2. Serena Williams (wins Wimbledon and USO, but only plays 10 tournaments due to injuries and not wanting to play too many of the same tournaments as Venus)

3. Venus Williams (loses AO and Wimbledon finals, dominates US hardcourt season, but falls apart after USO quarterfinal loss)

4. Lindsay Davenport (loses USO and masters final, has trouble in the beginnin of the year, but has solids results 2nd half)

5. Justine Henin (wins FO, dominates clay court season, but has injury troubles after Wimbledon)

6. Amelie Mauresmo (couple of tournament wins, has nice wins over top players, but loses early in 3 out of 4 Grand Slams)

7. Monica Seles (wins some tier II-III tournaments, but retires after USO quarterfinal)

8. Martina Hingis (wins almost all her matches against lower-ranked players, but can't beat nrs. 1-5)

9. Myriam Casanova (wins Indian Wells, beating Clijsters in the final, newcomer of the year)

10. Daniela Hantuchova (confirms her top-10 status, wins 2 smaller tournaments)

drop out of top 10:

12. Jelena Dokic (plays 28 tournaments, has to give up early in 13 of them due to injuries)

17. Jennifer Capriati (after losing 2nd round AO against Casanova, struggles to find back her form)

remember: this is only speculation, and these arent the rankings I want, but the way I think things might go...

1. Jennifer Capriati (If she work on her serve in holiday she can beat Serena and Co.; She has all to beat them)

2. Kim Clijsters ( she show what she can in the 2. half of the year. I saw her playing in Filderstadt and that was very good)

3. Serena Williams ( She's very strong at all but her knees are broken and so she is often injured)

4. Venus Williams ( She has the best 1. serve of the Tour but she serve bad with the 2. serve; has also problems with injures)

5. Justine Henin (great backhand but is too small to beat every time the top players; has also some injures)

6. Lindsay Davenport: ( she must also work on her fitness and she has all to beat the top people)

7. Amelie Mauresmo ( play sometimes strong and sometimes not; you don't know; if she is fit she can beat all of the top ladies)

8. Monica Seles ( it's very difficult to say: She must work on her fitness but she can play with the top's)

9. Daniela Hantuchova: ( very, very small must work on her fitness and correct her serve because she must serve like the williams sisters because she's big)

10. Jelena Dokic: ( said that she will play less tournaments than last year. but must also work on her fitness and her serve)
