With those options, the poll should've been "Who will make the Year's End Championships?"
Because out of that list, I only see Henin-Hardenne, Mauresmo and Dementieva there, though Molik, Venus and even Schnyder have chance. Venus by potential is a lock in the TOP8, however she is not playing many events and is not doing exceptionally well at those she plays. Dementieva is having quite a decent year, and she is consistent so even if she doesn't defend her runner-up points at Roland Garros and at the US Open, she still would have a chance to qualify, even as #8.
I know it's soon to predict, but my TOP8 players in no real order:
- Davenport, Sharapova, S. Williams, Henin-Hardenne, Clijsters, Mauresmo, Dementieva and Molik/Venus/Capriati/Kuznetsova. Some can surprise and some might fail to qualify, but those are the ones who seem to be doing better ATM not to mention they're the best players on tour IMO.
