Anna Kournikova will return to the top twenty

At some point, and may7be not for long. But athletic ability does count for something on tour, and she has loads of it. Her stay may be as short as Alexandra Stevenson's, but I believe she'll get at least week.

My question

What YEAR will Anna first return to the top twenty?

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

If the Top 80 all mysteriously contract injuries and are forced out of the game simultaneously, she's in there no problem.

Yes but by then she'll at least have the chance to return to the Top 20, with cyborgs and re-animation and stuff.

in 2001 we said she would be back in top 20, in 2002 we said she would be back, in 2003 we are saying she will be back, i think the question is, how long are we going to say this? its just like everyone saying serena will eventually loose, probably the clay courts, well we said she may go out in australia, she didn't, we said she may in paris, she didn't, we said she looked of in miami, she still won. i think we have all gone off on our predictions over the last couple of years. I say wait, if it happens good, for anna, if it doesn't. it wasn't meant to be for her clearly.

Anna Kournikova came awfully close to the top 25
but then she got injured
so i'd say this year or next year
she is more talented than half the top 15, so thats gotta count for something

Well she doesn't have many points to defend so if she can win a couple of matches, maybe next year she could make it.

she still has time to do it this year but she needs to get her game working. if she plays her best she'll have no problem but then anna doesn't usually play her best but hopefully that will change this year.

Poor Anna! I don't think there's been a female player for a long time whose game has been so thoroughly scrutinised. For her sake I hope she improves on her game and makes it into the top twenty again in the next few year. It really isn't that important, coz she's already been quite successful and thanks to her looks is financially set for life, but getting back into the top twenty would do wonders for her credibility.(although I suspect for most of you here, even if she makes it intot eh top twenty she'll never be 'good enough')
