When were the top 10 that good? I seem to remember Steffi tended to have one threat at a time and doubt if there were ever more than 3? Martina Hingis had 3 -5 main threats? Depends who you think the contenders are and whether they are all contenders at once. Todays top 4 plus Amelie and Venus are at least as competitive as Steffi or Monica facing each other, MJF, ASV, Mary P and Jana? If you arguing that no one new is getting to the top 4 , it seems true - we have 6 or 7 established players going for those places, several past top 4 players heading back to the top 10 and other hopefuls heading down into the thirties. What we don't have is Iva in the final or number 8 beating number one (Patty does it but not from the top 10 and not recently) But you don't get that very often and the players we might hope will crash the top 6 party are still not quite into the top 10 and still waiting their breakthrough run to a GS final.
