Chanda has no points to defend until Scottsdale where she lost 2nd round. So think again Sartrista!
If anything Dementieva will be bye-bye. Zvonareva and Petrova won't reach the Top 10 because they both have some major stuff at the RG to defend. They can maybe get in at 10 and 9 but after RG its bye bye to them.
Oh, do calm down, you silly little boy. Let's look at the results, shall we?
Wimbledon - wide open draw to the QF, loses somewhat tamely to Farina Elia
San Diego - QF, loses to Davenport, beats no one special
US Open - loses 1R to Vento-Kabchi
Bali and Shanghai - beats up on scrubs to get to two finals, folds against Dementieva in both
Filderstadt and Zurich - wins one match, loses two
Luxembourg - beats up on scrubs again to reach final (though I note that the QF score is Rubin def Molik 5-7 5-4 ret.), folds against Clijsters
-win against Mauresmo at the YEC is very good, but choke against Dementieva is... not
-takes JHH to three at Sydney, but JHH never hit top form in Australia at all; worth noting that Watson (!!!) took Rubin to a tiebreak in 1R
-Myskina is probably a better player than Rubin, but Rubin's game plan by the end of that AO match was woeful
-gets taken to three tight sets by Morigami in Tokyo, advances to SF when Venus pulls out
It's obviously not a slump of Dokic-esque proportions... but neither is it a particularly inspiring run, and if you think that's Chanda at her best...
Chanda may well fall out of the top 10 after Key Biscayne, when her SF points and JHH-beating bonus points fall off.
