That's without the result of the RG-final, so Justine should have an even bigger lead

The top 3 should probably start looking for a good hotel deal. They are pretty much booked a place. The other 5 spots are still in the air, so here is mine 8 to be at YEC:

Justine
Lindsay
Maria
Patty
Amelie
Serena
Kim
Alicia

I don't think Sveta will make this year

one thing I don't like it is that I don't see any intrigue left. The top players are pretty much at the top, so the rest of the season is useless

I hope Alicia can slip in there by Years End.

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

Molik over Dementieva? That would not be fun!

As of now, heres how I rate their chances @ the YEC....

Justine Henin-Hardenne 2264 A Definitite lock
Lindsay Davenport 2260 Guaranteed
Maria Sharapova 2217 ditto
Patty Schnyder 1685 ?? not sure, she's up high now but I'm unsure of how she'll do during the summer hardcourts. She can definitely make it but I don't think she's guaranteed.
Amelie Mauresmo 1667 She'll most likely be there.
Serena Williams 1598 Yes... is a GS winner given a WC if out of the top 8, like the ATP??
Kim Clijsters 1576 if she stays healthy...yes
Nadia Petrova 1463 don't think so
Mary Pierce 1291 I doubt it
Elena Dementieva 1089 don't think so, she's kind of 50-50
Ana Ivanovic 1054 not yet
Nathalie Dechy 1041 no
Alicia Molik 961 unless she has an out of this world Wimbledon, I doubt it. Being out for a GS & most of the clay(although her worst surface) hurt her.
Venus Williams 926 she needs one hell of a wimbledon & a good hardcourt summer.
Svetlana Kuznetsova 920 I'm surprised she is this low, I think she CAN but don't think she will

Alicia and Svetlana both are in the best position as they are more versatile out of the group of contenders.

Venus, of course, is a dark horse. If we get back 50% of real Venus, she'll be in the top 8 with for sure.

With no improvement (or very little) in the service department, it'll be tough for her to get deep in tournaments this year. Big babes are playing well again, a lot of hungry youngsters are out there...

With 2 slams left and a whole summer hardcourt season left, I can't see how you guys can be making predictions already...Lots can happen from now and the end of the year. It's just been half the year!

JUSTINE HENIN

Justine is at 2504 after the RG final.

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.

there is usually a cut off number of points to make top 8: around 2300-2400, so that's not tough to make a prediction.

now, if you talk about injuries, it's always a wild card. of course, all prediction are based on the fact that players will play most of the season.
