If Venus goes deep in Dubai, she overtakes Jenn

Jenn does not defend her Oklahoma points from last year and if Venus is close to 4.625 points after winning Antwerp probably, she is close to overtake Jenn in next week´s rankings

The scenario will change in the next weeks due to scheduling ( Venus skipping Indian Wells, Venus defending title in Miami, Jenn playing Scottsdale, Jenn defending final in Miami ... ) untill Venus decides to play Amelia and make some points before Jenn has to defend a title in Charleston

I believe ( being a Jenn-fan though ) that on green clay, Venus might but some points between her and Jennifer as she played a lot more events than in the past

Actually if Venus beats Henin in the Antwerp final then she does not even need to play Dubai to become #1 since she will be five points or thereabouts above Jennifer at the start of the week when the Oklahoma points are removed, so she will be #1 even with a first round loss.

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

If Venus wins Antwerp tomorrow, she doesn't need Dubai to overtake JCap, as capriati is losing 143 points next week! In fact, with a win at Antwerp, Venus will have 4688 points and JCap will have 4682 points after losing Oklahoma's points! Venus will be 6 points ahead, without even playing Dubai!
