just looked at BoiledEgg's rankings with the AO points off :cool:

good thing is that since Na won Sydney, she is still #11 even losing 900 points from the AO SF :eek:

Serena loses 2,000 points and falls out of top 10 :hug: the draws will be interesting later this year when she comes back :lol:

Caro, Vera and Kim have chance for #1 after AO ... seems Vera and Kim will have to at least reach SF and hope Caro upset early :angel:

Elena Dementieva may rise from #10 to #8 after AO :tape:

Jie Zheng fall to #43 :sad:

JuJu Heng can fall as low as #30 after losing 1,400 points

Shuai Peng maybe back top 50 :hearts:

Jing Jing Lu enters top 200 :worship:

Arina Rodionova also enters top 200 :eek: 2 Rodionovas in top 200 :eek:

Justine has Sveta in round 3, she might take a big drop.
Dinara is also taking a big drop.
Serena hasn't been healthy, so this is what happens when players have major injuries
Dementieva is on the way up, top 5 soon.

Serena :tears::tears: but she played so few tournaments and will still be ranked 12th :worship:

well Wimbledon will probably give Serena a special seed but at other tournaments she will be seeded outside top 10 :shrug:

Shahar may not be top 10 if the players below her like Na / Sharapova do better than her at AO :P

Please go look at their H2H, Justine might not be 100% but Sveta just choked two matches in back to back events, she's not beating Justine.

do you really believe that. serena coming back and having to say face henin early in the french or kim in a french warm up in say the 3rd round.

serena is obviously good, but some easier matches to help her get back into it would be a lot better. she is 28 now not 22, this long off the tour will take her time to hit her stride when she comes back.

well she had the same story in 03-04 and came back won Miami so she can do it again. and well if she is around 12-13 in the rank Henin is not that far so if she faces someone early it would be Kim and it would be A GREAT THING

The thought of Shahar being in the top 10 is just terrible and makes me feel like puking.

Now hopefully she can thrash Pushniacki's ass in early rounds of tournaments and show her who is the boss.

she may have won miami but she didn't win a slam for near on a year after, she was 7 years younger then. don't be surprised if she struggles a lot coming back especially if it is during the clay season.

I would give Caroline at least a small chance of beating Serena but I hope you are right and they do play each other in 2011. They have only played twice the last time being in Doha 2009.

i am not having a dig, i personally hope serena returns where she left off. it is just the more i think of it the more i feel like if she comes back at miami it could be the oz open next year before she is playing slam winning tennis again.

if she does come back at miami, i give her very little chance of doing anything on clay this year. i can see her just using the clay swing as a way of getting matches for wimbledon and getting match fit/tough

Serena-Kimmie matches are always very particular and if you think she'll tank, sink (...) like she did against Li in a match to Serena then keep dreaming. :lol: The new Kimmie willn't anymore bow down to her rivals Justine and Serena.

Kimmie doesn't need to win 13 majors for one to know who is the better of the 2 I don't understand your logic !? Serena is better than Justine or Kimmie achievements wise but tennis wise it's delusional to think the contrary.

I don't know what's your definition of talent but it's certainly not to hit 13 aces move very little and call yourself the GOAT watch Raf and Rodg in ATP (...) there's a lot more to that.

Serena will be out of top 10, but she won't have anything to defend until clay season, so when she comeback for Miami with probably good form, she will make a comeback to top 10 easily.

She did not even beat a top 50 player to get there. Currently she still hasn't shown that she is of top 10 calibre. If she beats Kim then I will shut up, but obviously she will be sent packing:o

This is true. She had even regressed in results since then but remained on her spot. Shows how weak 08,09 were, and how disappointing 2010 actually turned out to be.

I agree - this QF aint exactly gold star material, but she's there. I was talking more about that Aga's shown she can make a run in majors, beat top players now and then, which is enough to make the Top 10. Peer's almost there too really.


And the comment about Aga and no titles since 2008...our world #2 has one MM title on her 52-week scorecard. :o

:help: at some responses here on what if Shahar makes the top 10.
However, and as much as I want to see her make it, she's sure not playing like a top 10 player lately. She was easily top 10 level for most of last year, when in most cases it took a WS to stop her, and that was with Serena and Lena playing and obviously taking two available spots. All that changed with the abrupt leave of her then coach Pablo Giacopelli. Her tennis and results since haven't been the same.

Why do people even care that much for who's in 9th or 10th place unless it's one of their favs? I can see why a slamless / non-dominant #1 would upset some people, but #10? Why do you even care? Sure, because tennis changed completely when Pennetta got it briefly, and the tour would have ceased to exist if Cornet or Cibulkova would have got in at the time. :rolleyes:

As for #1, even with her limited schedule, Kim will return to the top spot sooner or later.

That's what she gets for getting spanked by Caro in two finals. And it's not like Caro has done poorly in slams herself reaching two semi finals recently and then also the final of YEC (where she beat Zvonareva again in the semi). And 6 titles trumps 1. So really, it's entirely fair.

She had 5 top 10 wins last year (admittedly, none after Madrid, as said above), including the current world #1, has beaten Dementieva and Kuznetsova in slams in the past, and was 2 points away from beating Serena (who ended up taking that slam). :shrug:

Vera's grand slams results significantly trump Caro's. Also I'd rather spank the top seed in straight sets in the semifinal of a grand slam than grind out 3 sets in Beijing.

1 GS Title > 12 random titles. Her GS season would be enough to keep her in the top 10, but as kman said, Caro's Asia run is what is keeping her at number 1, and it is well deserved :shrug:

Na has very little points to defend after the Australian open as well. Including very early losses in IW and Miami. Up until Madrid she doesn't really have much to defend at all. So even if she loses the final, she can definitely move up further over the coming weeks and months. :eek:

Hmm, the number one ranking could be passed like a hot potato. It seems likely that Kim will take it at the Paris tournament but I don't think she is playing in Dubai so either Caroline or Vera could easily snatch it away from her. Caroline, Kim and Vera all could potentially gain a lot of points in the next few months, one of them could get out ahead to a big lead but it seems more likely that they will stay fairly close to each other.

It should be interesting to see what happens with the number one ranking and how many times it is passed back and forth.

Dana1982

Well, Lena is officially out of the ranking - which is appropraiate considering she's retired, but it is pretty sad. I miss her!!

Shahar up to #11! yay! Hopefully she'll do good in the next tournaments and will be an official top 10! Sure she wasn't at her best in the beginning of the season (though - R3 at AO is what she did last year) but she's going to get better and don't forget she's at her best in Dubai (maybe in Doha too?)

Can someone please protest against her in coming tournaments? She plays her best tennis in such conditions... ;)
