2012 Official Year End Ranking:
1. Victoria Azarenka
2. Maria Sharapova
3. Serena Williams
4. Agnieszka Radwanska
5. Angelique Kerber
6. Sara Errani
7. Na Li
8. Petra Kvitova
9. Samantha Stosur
10. Marion Bartoli / Caroline Wozniacki (depends on Wozniacki's performance at MM YEC)
Vika clinched year end #1 for the first in her career.
Sharapova finished world #2 for the first time since 2006.
Radwanska finished at #4, the highest year end ranking for her so far, same happened to Kerber and Errani who finished #5 and #6 respectively. (New career high ranking for both of them.)
But the YEC final results will still go a long way to affect 2013 rankings.
