So it's probably only Mirza/Peng who can kick Klepac/MJMS out of Singapore now. And they would need to do extremely well in Asia to do so.

Will Venus still play HK after not applying for Wuhan and withdrawing from Beijing? It doesn't make sense coming to Asia that early to play a MM after not participating P5 and PM in the previous weeks.

Venus is roughly 1800 points ahead of #9 in the race (Mladenovic). Even a win in Beijing and Wuhan is only worth 1900 points in total. So unless someone goes on a big streak she looks likely to qualify for Singapore anyways and HK-week off-Singapore would seem like a reasonable schedule and make quite some sense. Would be really cool to see her back at the YEC as well.

Sorry, Beijing, Auntie V needs to get her quality time with baby Alexis and rest up for the YEC.

Re: Vandeweghe and Safarova withdraw from Wuhan. Venus already OUT from Beijing

It looks like the field for Singapore is almost set. Kuznetsova or Stephens would need a huge run and one of the 6-8 to do nothing
But it seems 95% already for the top 8, and Venus at 4612 looks very solid for Singapore. Stephens is 2711, a long way back

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
