Who Will Not Make the Year End Championships?

Out of these players (currently ranked 5-14 on the Race to the YEC) which one do you think is most likely not to make the tournament?

I would actually go with Myskina, who should really be on that list. You should also be able to check more than one option, as I don't think Golovin, Petrova, Dechy or Farina Elia have much chance to make the YEC and I'm doubtful that Patty will either. Look at the Race to the Championships and you'll see that Mauresmo and Dementieva are actually doing quite well and Venus isn't doing that badly.

Who Will Not Make the Year End Championships?

Just a crazy mad wild guess here but anyone who is currently ranked outside the top 100 in the rankings.

They are hanging on to the hope that there will be a huge rise in ankle twisting, hip disorders and sudden chronic fatigue sydrome.

Bonne chance

Exactly I just used #5-14 on the YEC list, to make the poll.. There are a lot of people I would have like to have added (Myskina, Kuznetsova), but since they aren't even in the top 14, I thought I'd just picked them.

I thought about making it more than one option, but I think a poll is more telling with one, it'll let you see who people really think won't make it, and not the group of people who are likely not to make it.

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.

i'm just happy that patty is having the sort of the year that makes her a genuine chance of making it. she struggled to make it when it was top 16 for quite a few years.
