i think the players performing really well this year are molik, dechy, zvonareva and harkleroad. bovina and daniilidou seem to be stuck around the #15, #16 rankings. i thought bovina would be a bit higher by now but she has had some bad losses.

i think molik and harkleroad have made better upsets this year than the other 2 but harkleroad did it all in one tournament so i think it is to early to tell how she will do, plus she did it on her best surface. molik i see as a genuine threat performing well on all surfaces so far but she had that injury which may cost her the top 10 ranking this year. zvonareva is doing well but isn't really beating the top 10 players alhough she does usually push them when she plays them.

but realistically if there was to be a new top 10er this year it would have to be bovina or daniilidou because the others aren't ranked high enough, they wouold have to take out a tier one and a couple of tier 2's and perform well in the grand slams.

i think daniilidou is a bit more consistent than bovina and she is ranked higher so i have to say she will be the new member if there is one.

Bovina and Zvonereva if they can keep consitantly good results, which at the momment they are failing to do. Also Vera is in limbo at the momment, being able to beat top 20 players but finding it tough against top 10.

there's a huge gap between #11 and #12 now of nearly 500 pts and closer to 700 to where Eleni is.

unless there are long term injuries i don't see anyone new getting into top 10 in 2003.

maybe 2004

Good luck to my favs

i believe you mean playes who have never entered TOP 10 before,
TOP 5 never to enter TOP 10,
in fact only 11 people out of TOP 30 never entered TOP 10,
if you count TOP 11, that's 9 people,
so in TOP 30, out of present TOP 10,
only less than 50% never reached #11 or higher,
TOP 5 never to be called "former TOP 10"
1. Danillidou
2. Bovina
3. Sugiyama
4. Shaughnessy
5. Pistolesi


Danillidou and Bovina are about 550 pts from TOP 10,
not to say that they cant,
but for Danillidou, a clay/grass specialist like Justine,
she better does it by Wimbledon..........

Bovina has a lot less points to defend till US Open,
which of course is her best showing at a Slam,
and where her career takes off.........
but 550 pts is still a big gap,
that's like a Tier I title...........

Ai had a good run in Scottsdale to win a Tier II title,
beating Lindsay and Kim,
Meghan can still rebound.............
and we are still wondering is Anna can repeat
or rather defend, her run last yr.........

than of course, we have to look at the quality points.....
let's look at TOP 3 quality points earner outside TOP 11,

why TOP 11, coz TOP 10 round up TOP 10 quality points, (all >800)
with #11 Dokic having the highest quality points outside TOP 10, (700+)
which just goes to show you how consistent
the present TOP 10'ers are
the rest of the gang got QP<700

1. Sugiyama
2. Bovina
3. Danillidou

so dont forget about Ai.............
she is the only one with a Tier II title to never enter TOP 10,
and she is a smart player,
but these 3 people pack ranked from 15-17,
is almost the certain bet to enter TOP 10,
though the present TOP 10 is as consistent as it can get,
remember the TOP 12 players feature TOP 10 of last
2 yrs i think.............
who is to say they can break in there,
they do have a chance..........
but as we all know, chances a lot of times dont get fulfilled.....
