Thumbs up Sharapova close to qualifying for the YEC Championships !

From the match of the day thread.

Quote:
.......The effects are, naturally, dramatic: Clijsters, #133 four weeks ago and #38 last week, is now #17 in the world. She is #4 in the WTA Race, behind only Sharapova (who, despite losing, takes the top spot and is very close to qualifying for the year-end championships), Davenport (also close to qualifying), and Serena Williams. If the WTA were still using the divisor, she's be up to #11 and nearly certain to get one of the top eight Roland Garros seeds.
Its only the beginning of April and Maria (alongwith Lindsay) is already close to qualifying for the YEC Championship.

That's awesome newz... and since Serena is merely 176 pts. behind Maria, and less than 100 pts behind LindZ, she must be close as well...

Surely it is too early to say players have qualified already?

I'm willing to look at math that proves that statement, but honestly, I think that's total BS.

Obviouslly Davenport and Serena could wind up with more points than Sharapova. Now suppose Dementieva, Schnyder and Dechy win Roland Garros, Wimbledon anf Flushing Meadow, with Moilk, Clijsters and Mauresmo as finalists.

Unless they're going back to the 16 player format (baaaaaad move), Sharapova could have 2000 points, and still not make it. The #8 player right now has over 2600 hundred points. Is 900 points shy of that really all that 'close'?

1 1699.00 SHARAPOVA

2 1614.00 5 DAVENPORT
3 1523.00 4 WILLIAMS
4 1237.00 CLIJSTERS
5 1089.00 MAURESMO
6 _960.00 MOLIK
7 _820.00 DECHY
8 _797.00 SCHNYDER
9 _697.00 DEMENTIEVA

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

thanks Volcana - that was very intresting and useful!
let's not forget JHH, venus and the russians are gunna split some points as well, so unless she really wins on of the remaining slams and assures herself the GS card, it's not done yet
or else - i'm very much ready to boycot the YEC.
april with two players already In for sure?
that's a bit boring.
in two more months, serena kim and RG winner will have secured places and that's it - nothing to look for anymore.
i hope sharapova and lindz qualify - i also hope they prove themselves time and time again before, they deserve bieng pushed to a better level - they are stars.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
