How many players do you think will break into the top 100 for the first time until the end of 2010?

I opened a thread (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=394958) last year about the players who has a chance getting into the top 100 untill the end of the season.
Even though it was too late then 2 players got into the top 100.

Already made it this year:
*Regina Kulikova
*Renata Voracova
*Chanelle Scheepers
*Johanna Larsson
*Bojana Jovanovski
*Simona Halep
*Ksenia Pervak
*Shuai Zhang

Here is a new thread which is going to be updated every week.

And how many did it last year? ;p

And how many did it last year? ;p

Last year 16 players broke into the top 100 for the 1st time. They were, Zahlavova, Chang, Mayr, O'Brien, Baltacha, Martic, Sevastova, Voegele, Malek, Ula Radwanska, Hercog, Hradecka, Dulgheru, Oudin, Larcher de Brito and South. All but the last two are still there.

I can also see there were at least another 14 players who were previously ranked in the top 100 but finished 2008 outside that ranking who broke back into the top 100 in 2009, those include Parra-Santonja, Sprem, Kutuzova, Flipkins, King, Rodina, Goerges, Brianti, Olaru, Date-Krumm, Dokic, Petkovic, Czink and Clijsters.

And I would say that this was pretty typical. Basically for this year I think we can expect more of the same, in other words, at least another 15 or so players to break into the top 100 for the 1st time this year and a total turnover of about 30%. In other words 30% of the current top 100 will most likely drop out by the end of the this year, give or take one or two. Of the 10 players listed I expect most to crack the top 100 at some point this year. Out of those 10, I'd say there are 4 dead certs, Pervak, Tetreault, Fichman and Jovanovski and i'd give all the others anything from a 50% shot to an 80% shot.

Anyway, to answer the poll question, 10+ positively.

I think Larsson,Pervak, Tetrault, Jovanovski, Rus will make it. Maybe I m biased cos I am her fan but I think Simona Halep will also make it this year. She has done great this week in Marbella and made the SF of a 50k earlier this year. Plus, she didn t play for some months last year. At the beginning of the year, I was sure Kika Kucova d make it but she is in such a terrible shape that I am not sure anymore :o
