I think there are some good signs for Britain's women in 2011.
Elena Baltacha had a really good run in 2010, and I've got high hopes for her to do something special this year to get into the top 50.
She's just got such a terrific attitude, and has developed a real fighting spirit.
To top it off, she's developed a big game - bolstered by a solid serve and a massive backhand.
On her day, she can be a threat to absolutely anybody.
For all the physical problems Elena's had over the years - to keep fighting the way she has and to produce her best tennis late on in her career is a formidable achievement.
I still think there's more to come from her this year; that she'll finally break into that top 50 and (at last) she might make some decent money - something she's had to wait a long time for.
She's managed to get her tennis a bit more in proportion. She's more relaxed on court in difficult situations, whereas she used to try too hard.
Basically, she now knows what her strengths and weaknesses are, so she can focus purely on the strengths - which are significant.
I think Elena can have another very good year and, if she stays injury free, she might even break into the top 40.
Another British lady who could well have a landmark year is 18-year-old Heather Watson, who had the win of her life against Carla Suarez Navarro in the Auckland Classic this week.
She's due to move into the top 150 when the new rankings are announced next week, and there's a very good chance she'll qualify for the Australian Open.
This will be an important year for her - moving up from juniors to seniors - but she's started 2011 off by beating the world number 38, and those wins don't come by accident.
She's obviously been working incredibly hard on her all-round game, and it's a natural thing to improve as you move up the ladder and feed off all that's around you in the seniors.
Heather is never going to have as big a game as Baltacha, for obvious physical reasons, but what she's doing is making the most of what she's got.
It's tricky to say just how far she'll rise up the world rankings, but by reaching the quarter-finals in Auckland this week she's certainly moved up a bracket in my expectations, and I'm sure there will be a few more surprises in store from her over the next 12 months.
Laura Robson is continuing to make strides in the women's game, but the question I ask myself about her is: how much more can she improve?
She has got some weapons. Her super forehand, strong serve, and very good technique contribute to a lovely all-round game, but we just don't know whether she's got what it takes when it comes down to the nitty gritty business of closing out matches.
Whether she can get her head down and really slug it out when she needs to in the tough matches.
It's a rough business being where she is now - trying to establish herself in the seniors - and she's facing people who want it so badly, and haven't been given the same benefits that she has.
She'll be facing people time and time again in 2011 who will kill to win, because they need it.
It will be a really tough year for Robson but she has got a super game, and if she can make some significant strides with her movement - and prove that she's got the fighting spirit to survive tough matches - then she might just make it.
Like Baltacha, I see her as a top-50 player. How deep into the top 50, well, we should have a better idea by the end of this year.
Someone I'm not so sure about this year is Anne Keothavong.
She's had an awful time with her injury (having been out for six months between 2009 and 2010 with a ruptured cruciate ligament), and coming back last year was never going to be easy.
She's got a better all-court game than Baltacha, with very few weaknesses, but she just doesn't possess the same weapons.
She's done terrifically well to achieve the things she has already in her career, but 2011 could be a really tricky year for her.
That said, Anne possesses an extraordinary fighting spirit and - having seen the form she's capable of 18 months ago - there's always a chance that she'll surprise me and do well this year.
