How can anybody even say that!
dnt they know Justine is dealing with the mafia for a greater conspiracy to make sure she will win YEC even if she will not qualify?
seriously, Justine is still in the running for the YEC!
currently the contenders to challenge Justine for the eight position the YEC (to surpass deny her a spot) are the following players with their ranking points to gain to do so:
Maria Sharapova - 634 points
Venus Williams - 739
Vera Zvonareva - 788
Nadia Petrova - 1319
The events to be played following this week including Filderstadt:
Filderstadt - Tier II - max = 350++
Moscow - Tier I - max = 450++
Zurich - Tier I - max = 450++
Linz - Tier II - max 350++
Advanta - Tier II - max 350++
so with the following assumptions, these players must :
Maria - needs to win 2 events, or a semifinal in 3
Venus - needs to win 2 events or a semifinal in 2 tier I's (not sure if she will play 2 or more events though)
Vera - same as venus
Nadia - must win 4 events which is impossible, so cut her out now!
base on the above assumptions, the chances of these players to surpass Justine is very slim.
Adding the factor that Justine will play some of the event (she only withdrew Filderstadt for now), she can still earn points to extend her lead.
actually, as of now, i am saying that Justine is sure to qualify the YEC! and if she plays there she had a big chance to win it all!
Good Luck Justine!
