It will be Cornet, or even Sharapova. Stosur is also crap. Larsson also crap. Putintseva going down easily.

Bouchard already has the wooden spoon, whilst Wickmayer was caught doped and never bounced back. Germans Petkovic and Barthel, just bad. Lisicki retired? Like Erakovic?

Pironkova should also be a candidate.

I think you misunderstand the point of this thread (just take a glance above).

Also... Pironkova has been missing through pregnancy. Lisicki is not retired; she is injured, it takes just a glance at her social media to see the announcement. Stosur has actually had a very good couple of wins in the past few weeks. Larsson hasn't lit up the courts this year, but she does have two quarter-finals so far, and only two first-round exits.

Wickmayer broke anti-doping rules in 2009(!) but never tested positive; she failed to report her whereabouts for testing availability three times, like Cornet recently – that doesn't make her a cheat. As for "never bounced back" – she hit her best ranking *after* the doping case; she also suffered from lyme disease. This year, she has had some success in breaking back into the Top 100.
