Re: From year-end number 1 to not even making the Y.E.C...
Basically, last year she was incredibly consistent and fed off momentum. Vika is in the exact same position this year, she's able to practically beat everyone below her. You simply can't expect a player to back up that kind of season in the next year - e.g. Djokovic. He's lost his aura, it's natural. The reason why it hasn't happened to Serena is because she dips in and out of great performances and has created a unrivalled supremacy around her whilst Masha is the more expressive fighter. IMO Caro has dropped to her natural ranking, she should never have been dominant for so long, and this isn't a jibe at her, but since Vika, Rena, Masha and in a sense, Kerber have dominated this season she's found it hard to keep up. However, she'll be consistently at the top for most of her career.
