Sweet Caroline

She ended 2010 and 2011 as the number one player in the world. This year has seen her plummet out of the top 10 with 2 first round grandslam exits. Players know how to play her already. Step in and drill the forehand.

Caroline is definitely a top 8 player and she definitely has more power than we might believe. She just needs to have the guts to hit through the ball. When she plays well, it's a marvel to watch.

She ended the WTA season with a victory in Moscow over top 10 player Stosur. This, as well as a strong showing in Sofia should set up a renascences of sorts for her in 2013. It would be nice to have 2 counterpunchers (Radwanksa and Wozniacki) in the top 10 contending with the big guns.

Caroline seems like a lovely girl and is a great ambassador to the game. While she certainly doesn't make a fitting number one, she does make a very reliable and entertaining top 10 player and for the sake of the tour, let's hope she is a contender for big titles in 2013.
