Hmmm. Maybe Jen can be 'awarded' #1 instead.

You need advanced Maths to figure it out but amelie is 616 points ahead. I think there are 488 points left for getting to the final and winning it and you have to add asagoe. sveta or nadia and elena or Jennifers quality points which i think comes to 16 + (86 or 70 ) + 86. So basically if Lindsay wins the final she is number 1 with a lead of 44-60 points.

If Sveta or nadia beat Lindsay or she loses the final or one player does not show and the Sf or final are walkovers, Amelie is still number 1.

I may be wrong, wiser people may tell me.

Lindsay has to WIN THE TITLE to be #1. Otherwise, Amelie is #1.

The way Tracy explained it was the if Amelie won today she was assured of #1 no matter what Lindsay did, but if Amelie lost Lindsay would have to win the entire thing to become #1 ( which would be justice for her suck ass seeding).

thats what the figures I worked out above say. its a funny old world isn't it. Elena or Jen win or Sveta or nadia pull off the upset and Amelie is number 1. Even stranger if Elena wins the title - she would have taken number 1 away from amelie and then gave it back!

Look. Listen to me.

Amelie is #1 unless Lindsay wins the title, in which case she will be #1.

Okay? Okay.

Being a "Slamless #1" really "messed Kim's mind" last year. (OK, she was the first ever). If Momo (uh, not quite as calm a person) becomes #1 Sans Slam, how will the endless "do you really deserve it" media questions and stories affect her?
