If Kim can have a good indoor season, then there's no reason why she can't receive the WC.

Remember she is the two-time defending champion.

Agreed!!!

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!

There is no WC at the YEC; but there is a clause that states
that the WTA can elect their own choice for the 8th spot
given unusual circumstances that overide rational rankings
or points in standings in the race to the big championship finale.

OMG!! That's even more hystericaler... You're killing me, Greeny!

P.S. I can't give you any reps because I've been to stingy in passing them around. The fact is, I use a freebie Mac browser (iCab), which doesn't have certain capacities, one of which is being able to give rep points. In order to do that, I have to fire up Internet Explorer, which is a nightmare to use on this board (or anywhere else, for that matter.) Anyway, enough about me. I don't want to bore anyone and be considered non-friendship material.


There's a bit of Justine in all of us.


"The great thing about Henin and Federer is that each of them is a beautiful player and a superior competitor, so the divide is effectively bridged. Have there ever been a pair of No. 1 players who so fully represent the abundantly gifted as well as the fully-ripened competitor?"

just-out timberlake just doesn't have the same ring to it

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I didn't know that. Then I think -if Kim does well the following weeks- we might see her play there.

Oh and by the way, why is Justine no longer a factor??? (not a question for you to answer greenout )

You may have missed the topic last week; but this isn't
a joke. There is a clause, and alot of people have posted
many theories on it. The big possibility is that the WTA
will slide Maria (aka: wimbledon champ) in the 8th spot if it
came to it over Vera, Venus or even Jennifer.

Yeah, I miss a lot of topics here

Well, I'm happy Kim is back and is doing well at the moment, it would be a bonus to see her play at the Masters but I don't count on it.
