Question Who is due for a breakthrough in 2008?

Which players will make huge ranking jumps and surprise us?

I think Azarenka will move into the top 20.
Kvitova into the top 60.
Olaru into the top 40.

Re: Who is due for a breakthrough in 2008?

Serena Williams and Venus Williams
I hope. I have never seen either of them play a full year of high level tennis. This year they've been knocking on the door of the top spots but just couldn't stay healthy enough, or keep their level up.

Re: Who is due for a breakthrough in 2008?

If Natalie Grandin gets super fit, she'd be top 50 in singles.

Re: Who is due for a breakthrough in 2008?

I forgot about Ayumi.

What is she ranked now? She definitely has the talent to be top 100. She could go even further.

Re: Who is due for a breakthrough in 2008?

If Mirza and Krajicek find consistancy they can climb to top 15-20
I think Knapp/Errani will surprise
and of course young players like Kvitova, Morita, Wozniaki and Cornet will have strong results

Of my favourites, I'm hoping Ayumi will crack the top 100.
