where should our darlings aim to be ranked by the end of 2002?
tammy: around 25<br />Ai: top 25<br />Su-Wei: top 80<br />saori: top 70<br />shinobu: 80 - 90<br />angie: top 75<br />yoon-jeong: 90 - 100<br />janet lee: around 100<br />rika: 100-110
my opinion isnt as accurate as others so what do you all think? how about others like miho, mi-ra, eun-ha, akiko, yuka? <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Akiko sould aim to be top 170
I think your wrong about Yoon-jeong ... she is good enough to be aiming to get top 80 <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I think Rika should aim for Top 100, but she has a lot to defend first half of 2002.
Miho should first get into the Top 150, and work on from there in getting back to where she was a few years ago.
Mi-Ra has been ranked in the Top 150, but it's tough for her to do it again. I think Top 200 is a reasonable goal.
I like to see Yuka ranked in the Top 150 again, but she hasn't played singles since the US Open, and she's not injured or anything. But just doesn't want to play singles. I don't know what's wrong with her. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">
Shinobu has a lot to defend the first quarter, but after that practically nothing until after the US Open. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I think Tammy should try aiming towards the top 20 mark. She's been hanging around the top 30 for a long time now, it's just a matter of her coming up with a few bigger results throughout the course of the year, which means working on improving on all surfaces, and taking advantage of her opportunities in smaller events she plays where realistically she has been a contender for plenty of titles, but has failed to come through.
I'd like to see Ai aim for top 30 again. I think she can still be in the top 20 definetly, but after dropping quite a bit this year, I think a reasonable goal is top 30, and anything more than that is icing on the cake. Hopefully she can get back her singles form and climb back up the rankings.
Su-Wei and Angie I think should both aim for top 100. They've got good rankings right now, and are both talented, but right now they're playing events really with not much pressure, because they're playing only for experience since they're still in juniors. I think that they can both make top 100, but shouldn't put too much pressure on themselves to go past that mark just yet. They have plenty of time.
The others mentioned there I think should aim for top 100. I think they've all showed glimpses of their talent, but unfortunately have been sidetracked by missed chances, and injuries for the most part. If they can get it together more consistently, then maybe they can make a big ranking jump.
