Well Sharpy has so little to defend that if fully recovered she will be back in the top 10 no problem.

To be expected. Ana can say bye, bye to the Top 10 at this rate. Congratulations to Zheng Jie on getting into the top 20.

She can actually drop even further cos she had a great first half of the season last year. She is defending huge points in Doha, Indian Wells, Amelia Island and Rome.

Oh yeah I had forgotten about that. Well, like Serena ranking shmanking. She will be seeded lower but who is gonna want to face Maria Sharapova early in any tournament. And if she knocks off some quality players early because her seeding is lower she will shuffle the rankings even further.

Re: Sharapova dropped to #16

Well she stayed in the top 10 for almost a year without playing, so that tells you something right there.
I know. She and the Williams sisters are in different league compared to the others.

Sharapova will be lucky to be ranked in the top 20 for Wimbledon.

There might be a little switching around of seeds at Wimbledon if that's the case though.

I can't see how you can keep her as a low seed when right now only 5 players ranked in front of her have ever made it to a Wimbledon semifinal (Venus, Serena, Dementieva, Ivanovic, Bartoli).

Re: Sharapova dropped to #16

Sharapova is still a top player, just an injured top player. Williams fans have proved time and time again ranking means nothing, right ?
