I think when you make the jump to top 10/15/20, you get the attention of your opponents (or at least their coaches). You're no longer an unknown like could be claimed during your breakthrough season. A lot of players start to fall off in their results/rankings at this point (pressure of backing up a breakthrough being another big factor).

I find it hard to believe that a player could finish a second season in a row in the top 10/15/20 and not have been scouted out quite a bit.
I think that they should round up a few of the robots from Brilliant Machines and see how their interview charisma compares with surefire insomnia cures like Stosur and Kerber...btw,in the boredom realm,4 ""=4 stars for a movie.I'm cutting cute li'l dork Vinci a whole lot of slack here b/c she simply doesn't speak English very well.Her vocabulary contains about 20 words;"play a good match" being prominent among that group...the other two aforementioned gals speak English very well thus have no excuse

Sorry for changing the subject from your post above;you make a couple very plausible arguments

When the Lizards play their Trump card, humanity suffers

Monica Puig, guapa campeona de tenistas latinas

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
