Who will finish 2017 with more points - Kerber or Serena?

The 2016 year end #1 and #2 are close to each other in the race once again this year. So far Serena is in the lead but there is still another major and other big tournaments to go so anything can happen.

So far in 2017, Serena has amassed 2030 points:
  • Auckland R2 (30)
  • Australian Open W (2000)

While Kerber has 1784 points:
  • Brisbane QF (100)
  • Sydney R16 (1)
  • Australian Open 4R (240)
  • Doha R16 (1)
  • Dubai SF (350)
  • Indian Wells R16 (120)
  • Miami QF (215)
  • Monterrey F (180)
  • Stuttgart R16 (1)
  • Madrid R16 (120)
  • Rome R32 (1)
  • French Open R128 (10)
  • Eastbourne QF (100)
  • Wimbledon R16 (240)
  • Toronto R16 (105)
  • Cincinnati R32 (1)
  • US Open R128 (10)

Oh my, Kerber is holding onto the only thing with some resemblance of her 2016 season, the race between her and Serena

Imagine if Kerber plays the rest of the season and fail to get more than 246 points...

I know this is a bit of bite thread, but it is just so on point.

Y'all are shady af hahahaha. She can do it by reaching the second round at the main tournaments, which I guess might or might not be achievable given her current form

Cincy: 60
US Open: 70
Wuhan: 60
Beijing: 65
= 255

she will get a BYE for Wuhan and Cincy so not all 2nd round exit could save her

I know Angie's playing badly this year but it's a bit of a stretch to say she won't get 246 points before the end of the year.

Re: Who will finish 2017 with more points - Kerber or Serena?

The sad part is more than half the year has gone by and she hasn't done it. It's like saying it's going to take her over 18 events to equal a 2 event result. Yikes.

The point of this thread

Serena won a freaking Slam, so of course it gives her a lot of points, rightfully so.

Making fun of Kerber with that is just plain stupid. Her year might be weak but not that weak, she's still 16th in the race while most people on TF make it sound like she barely belongs to the top 100.

It's really funny because Kerber is having all this terrible year and everything but made more points than for example Bacsinzky, Kontaveit, Strycova, Kasatkina and the beloved so called future sensation Cici Bellis. I guess it just shows how her standards are high and how she actually is a great player. After all, you only create expectations if people think you are capable.
