If you could change the current WTA Top 10 Singles Ranking, who would you add in/out?
I would like to see what you guys think. Not based on favorites or this year's results- but by overall SKILL and PERFORMANCE. Here's mine. =)
WTA Top 10: (at their best)
1. Serena Williams
2. Dinara Safina
3. Venus Williams
4. Victoria Azarenka
5. Maria Sharapova
6. Elena Dementieva
7. Samantha Stosur
8. Svetlana Kuznetsova
9. Flavia Pennetta
10. Jelena Jankovic
Side Note: I took out Vera Zvonereva and Nadia Petrova, simply because the current rankings only have them in the top 10 for previous results in the past, but currently they are not up to par. I replaced them with Sharapova and Stosur because I do believe they are at a much higher level than the two mentioned; while as I replaced Wozniacki with Pennetta because she has proved herself to be a real top 10 contender.
I can't wait to see your lists!! :)

Well it's hard to say because everyone has their weekness..
The rankings are based on overall form, so they are fair, just hard to overtake when certain people play so many tournaments.
1. S.Williams < 3/4 GS's
2. V.Williams < Top form = best in world
3. Dementieva < I disslike, but she really is on form
4. Safina < credit to beating Clijsters
5. Azarenka < Bad recent form, but still good
6. Jankovic < Beat Azarenka, but still bad
7. Pennetta < more big wins and definately top 5
8. Kuznetsova < should be out of top 10, FO = saviour
9. Zvonareva < bad form, but good when on form
10. Clijsters < Big wins, top 5 soon
Stosur: Would be Top 10, Bad in finals
Wozniaki: Plays too much, there are 10+ players better
Ivanovic: NO FORM, TOP 32 AT BEST, ON TOP FORM = TOP 3/4
Bartoli: Wouldn't be able to hold a top 10 position
Sharapova: Bad serve, good form, but not good enough
Zheng: If she wins some tournaments and improves serve, she WILL be top 10 on day
Li Na: Definately Top 8 standard. Injured. She could have made a HUGE impact on the US Open Series.
A.Radwanska: Not strong enough, too pushy, no force in GS's
Sorana Cirstea: 6-4 6-4 defeat to Dementieva isn't bad, and she has been on form beating Wozniaki, Radwanska etc ONLY 19

7. Flavia Pennetta
The last three haven't been playing at their best but have been in top form when playing against Williams. Kuznetsova win in French, Azarenka close in Auzy. Think Safina has been lucky with her draws but I think Elena deserves to be higher up after Wimbledon Semi (Spectacular! Respect :D) Jankovic has proven herself too after her first win in a while. Don't think Ivanovic will be coming back. Zvonereva and Petrova out because they haven't done much this year.
This is what it should be for me right now based on winnings this year and previous rank positions.Source(s): www.wantmoretennis.blogspot.com

What in the heck do you think the rankings are based on? The swimsuit competition?
