But how would you explain Sam and Marion in top 10 when they played such an unimpressive tennis last year... Kvitova played like shit and she reached 2 slam semifinals. Ana was unfit, she played a top 5 schedule, her game looked so average and she's #13. I'm not even gonna say anything about Lepchenko. Apart from top 4, Errani and Kerber were the only ones who showed some high level of tennis at some points.
