Vika has a chance. Caro was never great. Maria = no dope, no hope.

Caro and Maria are done. If Vika can sort her head out she can still be top 10 at least. It's a big if though.

Maria, Vika, Stosur, Kuznetsova seem done.

Wozniacki i'll give another chance. She has the illness and still won a premier manditory in the last 8 months.
Muguruza is young enough to give her another chance, but it's not looking good either.

Maria is done
Vika looks like she can do some damage but then she crumbles like today
Caro is not that bad, she still hold a title and still can do some damage in USO

Of course they are done. They can be great mothers, wives or entrepreneurs in the candy industry but as tennis is concerned greatness and big titles are gone. Same goes for the W. sisters. If the tour had any great talent to monopolize the big titles they would already be retired.

Caro is not top anymore because of her health, but in fact Azarenka and Sharapova can't come back anymore because the level is very high. That's why nobody is dominating hugely the tour. There are 200 solid players in the WTA.

Yes

Maria Sharapova is done 90%
Caroline Wozniacki is done 90%
Vika Azarenka is done 80%

Also Muguruza, Cibulkova and Venus are done.

Injuries, illness or pregnancy destroyed their form.
Also the age is an important factor. They are old and slower.
They have to play against younger, fresher, healthy, motivated opponents.

Serena also moves and serves a lot worse than she used to.
We will see if she will ever win another Grand Slam ...

Yes, an era of champions is (slowly but surely) coming to an end :sad:

I think Azarenka has the best chance to get it together. What Wozniacki has is not going away and Sharapova's body cant handle it anymore

It's strange. Physically, Sharapova is nearing the end. Her body is breaking down...but that desire and that competitive fire is still there. If she can trust her shoulder, I think it will be easier to hold her serves. She can beat top players on a good day and still seems motivated to win a grand slam.

Vika and Caroline just lack that spark that Sharapova still has. They may be younger, but less likely to ever do anything big again.

Sharapova is a champion and will probably fight on and keep believing she can win...like, truly believing, not fake posturing like Vika seems to do for 1 set. Caroline's game is not a champion game.

None, the current level is very high. Kim Clijsters came back after pregnancy and was stronger, more motivated. You don't forget to play tennis and physically they are all good. Just that the current era has a very high level. No more Jankovic, Ivanovic, Safina, Dementieva and Wozniacki. ATP is trash, WTA has one of the best eras.

I don’t see anyone of them being consistently at their best anymore but any of the three could easily peak and have a deep run at a big event

The *belief* won't ever end. You can quit your pearl clasping and just get used to it.

Clijsters was younger and came back a year and a half after her daughter was born.
