With her first round win over Daja, Kim has passed the 3000 points-mark again

She's at 3048 now! Let's hope she can add to that the next 3 weeks, even if it'll be very difficult, considering she still has to defend about 450 points. But we all know she can do it!

GO KIM!!! Play your heart out these last weeks!!!

Ingrid, how does seeding work at the championships? Is it according to the main rankings or the race rankings? And how many seeds are there?

COME ON KIM

Sweet as Belgian Chocolate, Bubbly as Champagne

"No matter what happens, you have to try to stay positive, bad things can happen, but if you try to stay positive, something positive will come out of it…I believe that everything happens for a reason" - Kim Clijsters

for the moment, she is still number 5
4. Mauresmo 3120
5. Kim 3102
6. Henin (after qf win) 2940
7. Seles 2796
8. Dokic 2599
9. Hantuchova 2550
10. Hingis 2348

So you see that only henin can catch her this week, but she would have to win the whole tournament for that.

But with next week points off (luxemburg and Linz)
4. Mauresmo 3120
5. Henin 2940*
6. Kim +- 2875
7. Seles 2796
8. Hantuchova 2550
9. Dokic 2420
10. Hingis 2348

The points aren't a 100% accurate
But Seles and mauresmo aren't playing. So henin has a shot at number 4. Kim hasn't but she is pretty sure about her 6 th position, even a possible 5th if henin loses early in Linz.

Seedings at the Champsionships go on the race points as far as I know!

I hope Kim can finish the year off in the top 5!

Kim stays at no.5 this week, although Justine Henin can reach no.4 or no.5 if she does really well in Linz.

I'm hoping that Kim will be able to defend her title in Luxembourg & do well at the season ending championships (she has SF points to defend) to be able to finish the year in the Top 5 for the second straight year.

I've given up trying to calculate Kim's ranking, because I always seem to be off somehow. The gap between her and Justine is quite small, so we'd better hope Justine loses early and Kim wins. Unfortunately, Justine has a very good draw and a solid chance of making it all the way to the finals.
In good news, though, Kim can really only drop one place to sixth, so in LA she'll be seeded somewhere from 5th to 7th depending on whether or not Lindsay ends up with some sort of special seeding--and also, I suppose, on whether Venus shows up.

Bob Larson's ranking predictions this week:

The Rankings. At this point, the big concern isn't really next week's rankings; it's qualification for Los Angeles. Besides, the rankings aren't going to change all that much. Serena Williams is #1, Venus Williams #2, Jennifer Capriati #3, Amelie Mauresmo #4.

Below that, things do start to get interesting. Kim Clijsters is the defending Luxembourg champion, so she can't move up and might drop a spot. And everything below that is up for grabs.

Justine Henin doesn't have much to defend, so she's ahead of Clijsters in safe points -- but she's playing a much harder tournament. Monica Seles is probably safe at #7, and can't move up -- but theoretically could fall behind Daniela Hantuchova.

Jelena Dokic does have points to defend (174 of them, in fact), so she starts out behind Hantuchova in safe points. Theoretically, Hantuchova could move as high as #7. Her chances of making #8 look pretty good.

And then there is Lindsay Davenport, the defending Linz champion and with an injury. She was in the same situation she's been in for several weeks: She had to defend at least the majority of her points to stay in the Top Ten. Otherwise, Martina Hingis is back to #10. And now Davenport is out. Which means that Hingis will be back in the Top Ten for at least a week -- and will be in the year-end Top Ten unless Anastasia Myskina makes a very big move in the next two weeks, or possibly if Davenport wins Los Angeles. It's not likely to happen. Myskina has to gain 450 points to catch up with Hingis, and it's actually more than that because Myskina has so much in her sixteenth and seventeenth tournaments. Our guess is that Myskina would have to win Los Angeles, or reach the final and the Linz semifinal. We'd give Hingis at least an 80% chance of ending 2002 in the Top Ten.

Interesting calculations. I really hope Kim can keep the #5 spot. It'll be interesting to see what happens from 5-10 though!

Now that Kim won the Seat Open, and Justine won the other tournament, what happens to the rankings?

Kim is ranked 6 now, she didn't gain points because she is defending her Luxembourg title and she must at least reached the SF at the season ending championships to be able to have a shot to finish the year at no. 5 or higher if she goes all the way to the finals & wins it.

Since Justine won, she gained a lot of points because she lost in the 2R last year in Linz, she's now ranked a career high no. 4.

If Kim reaches the semi's again in L.A., and Justine doesn't, Kim has a good chance to be at #5 or even #4, because this year the points of the Championships have increased drastically!

Last year, semifinalists got 180 round points, now they get 218 round points!!!

So let's hope for Kim to reach the semi's (or better!) again

GO KIM!!!
