Re: Which world #5 is the best player at her peak? Hantuchova, Chakvetadze or Kerber?
Probably Kerber. Although we have to see if this year was just an anomaly or not.
Chakvetadze's and Hantucova's 07 and 02 seasons respectively were very much career anomalies. Outside of those years, only Hantuchova managed to knock (briefly) on the door of the top 10 again in her 11 year career. She was pretty much a punchbag for the elite for the majority of her career. And I like Chaky, but her string of results from Moscow 06 - USO 07 was definitely an overachievement.
