Oh, the drama!

i think Jenny has given up the fight for a place in YEC
she's most probably partying somewhere n will start preparing for 2005 in DEC

i think the top 8 now will be the top 8 come november, venus' sparse schedule and jennifer's lack of indoor results, as well as maria's decision to play small tournaments and guarantee herself points should lock up spot 8, maria should play some harder events though soon to prep herself for the competition level at the YEC, also, we have to wonder if any of the top 8 are questionable fitness-wise at this point...you never know

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"

Venus plays very big tournaments and if she does well, she should equal the amount of points that Maria gets for being cheap and not earning her points

Hasn't it been ages since the top 8 qualifiers have even shown up? It's probably a better than 50% bet that at least one of the top 8 won't even be in LA.

If Jennifer keeps being absent from her commitments, she wont make it. This title could mean a clinch for Maria.

Venus added Philly so I think she has a better chance than Maria, if she does well at her tournaments.

Yeah that is what I think, Venus is playing two tier I tournaments and one tier II, she can win big points.

VENUS WILLIAMS
SERENA WILLIAMS
PAULA ORMAECHEA

If Jen is not going to make it (which seems likely, and I don't mind, she can rest up for Oz, although if Justine withdraws she could?) I want Venus there. I want Venus to play against Top 8 players, 3 matches to give her an assessment of where she needs to go during the off season.

Go Jen and Venus

Udachi Masha.

It would be nice to have all of 04's Grand Slam champions playing.
