Okay,I'm gonna nitpick cuz I know what a nice guy you are.Errani is slated to become #5 next week,and let's look at her career H2H vs. the current Top 5: Oh-fer against Serena and Masha,ZERO sets won;0-5 against the current #5,Li,and the last four have been major ass-whuppings;1-6 vs. Aga,and that one win came in 2006;1-5 vs. Vika,and that one win came in their second meeting,at Moscow 2008,when Vika was 18.
Forgive me for being judgmental,but I don't define THAT as 'competitive'
.The truth is,your statement is usually true but,whether it's Caro or anyone else,it IS possible to be in the Top 5 while a major gulf exists between you and the players ranked ahead of you
