With her win over Hantuchova, Schnyder pretty much clinched a spot on the GE list!?

She is almost set, unless 2 players pass her, she is top 16 coming out of US Open.

Franscesca and Silvia can pass her only if they make their slam final debut.
There are a couple of Russians that can pass her, if Elena Bovina stops Lindsay Davenport's 19 matches winning streak, and Nadia Petrova takes down #1 ranked player Justine from defending, they can pass her.

Otherwise, the only player that can pass her is Paola Suarez who probably will.
But she almost clinches.....and the rule clearly indicates.

Composition of Gold Exempt List
The 2004 Gold Exempt player list consists of 20 players composed as follows:

a. The Top 16 ranked singles players as of the computer rankings produced immediately following the previous years U.S. Open; plus

b. Four (4) Wild Card players to be chosen solely by the Worldwide Tournament Directors.

So Congrats to Patty for making the list.....

Pretty stupid not to give it to Patty anyway - invent a rule if there isn't one. Can't think of anyone else who entertains more or stands more chance of beating a top player outside the top 12.
