I'm worried about my sweet golden girl. I want to ask if she can avoid falling out of top 10 if she loses very early at AO 08.

:sad:

I really doubt she'll lose early in Oz next year. When Maria plays well she loses to Justine and maybe the Williams sisters. When Maria plays amazing she beats everyone. Maria isn't going to be playing sub par forever...

Maria hasn't gotten many points since the AO. Just RG and SD.
She'll have to do something good this fall and at the AO to stay in the top 8.

6th or 7th

If she falls down to 6th or so shell easily climb back up as she hasnt got that many points to defend for some while after

I'm not worried about Maria. Once she gets her serve back, she gets her real ranking back. She shouldn't be ranked below the third place. And seeing her reaching the final in Melbourne and even winning next year wouldn't surprise me at all.

she beat them before and will do it again in the future ;)

Not when they're playing "amazing" she isn't.

She obviously can. Maria playing well vs. Serena playing well resulted in AO '05.

I think around 8th, unless she gets her serve back. But I still expect her ranking to drop because I don't think she can get to the final.

I think that Maria's game may be too limited to beat Henin or the Williamses. Only when she's playing brilliantly a la 2006 US Open can she beat them, though I'd expect this sort of result every blue moon.

That's why her playing Moscow will be interesting. Is her serve back or is she rushing back for points?

Maria always played well indoors tournaments so if she realy healthy now like she say she will reach enough points at Moscow, Zurich and Madrid to stay in TOP10 even if lose at AO in 4R or QF! She is TOP10 player after Wimbledon 2004 (more than 3 years) and that will continue...

I don't know , but if she has less chances to reach the final of Australion open , she has more chances in Wimbledon and US open , if she can find her serve , we're all waiting , I hope she'll be healthy and confidant , if Maria can really return to a good serve , she'll be better than 2006 , as she added things to her game this year , so I'll be positive .

Uhm no, Sharapova playing well against Serena playing well when it mattered but sub par for the most part, resulted in AO 05.

Everything has probability, only if it's higher or lower.

She's almost come through the trough stage after struggling for about a year and she's going to be in another stage. She's just passed each player needs to and I'm sure she's gonna achieve more in her career.

BTW, I think she could win in Moscow.

Maria will win a Slam in 2008. That this statement in no way answers the original question of this thread, I am well aware.

That's what everyone said about Roddick's terrible 2006 season. Turns out his 2007 season was even worse :tape: :haha:

Terrible 2006?

He won a Masters Series Event, made the final of the US Open, and had match points against Federer in the Masters Cup- in a year where only two people actually managed to convert match points against Federer.

By any stretch of the imagination, it was a very good year.

i can't believe anyone still believes this :o even a completely deluded fan should have accepted that this just isn't the case.

i don't think she'll be back too soon

this "shoulder" injury has been going on all year, why should it be magically healed now

every tournament she comes back she says its better now, then she loses and suddenyl her shoulder injury is back

She has (I believe) 805 points to defend from now through the YEC, plus another 1035 to defend from the start of next year through Miami. If she can successfully defend half of them, which is doable even if she's only so-so, she should be ranked at around 8 or 9 for clay season, which won't do her a lot of favors. Add to the fact that she has a fair number of points to defend at the French, and she should definitely be trying hard to maintain a top 8 seed for Wimbledon. If she has to play top players three or four times in a row at a major, it will be very hard for her to get back up the ranking. She can do it, though, she's certainly capable of getting herself together and making it back to the top 5. I don't know whether she'll spend a lot of time at #1 anymore though; it looks like this injury may be a long-term thing (a la Serena's knee, Venus' wrist, Davenport's shoulder/back/body)

It was a terribly disappointing season for him, salvaged only by the last few months in which he reached a slam final (without having to play anyone in the top 20 I believe).
He only reached 1 GS QF in the entire year.
He only won 1 title.
He didn't convert those match points against Federer.
And he lost the following match badly to Nalbandian.

Well, let's see...she's likely to pick up about 200 points before year end. Add about 1000 for next January/February, and she'll be...2500 points ahead at the lowest...

Venus, Ana, and Sveta have their work cut out for them!

Enough to be qualified for YEC 2008 and thanks to her golden slam, enough to qualify for YEC 2009.

If she loses early.. she will more than likely fall out of the top ten... Yes after the Ao Justine will be farther ahead..... And venus should be Top 3....cause lets face it.... if she continues to perform badly at the AO she prolly wont get her act together until wimbleon, so who knows what her ranking will be. Do we honestly expect her to find her game on the clay surfaces? I know i dont.....
