The current top six are locks. The other two spots are in question.

One knowing, where I can find the whole ranking (or at least top250 or top300) with 2005 points? wtatour.com only has Top100

If Serena doesn't finish inside the TOP8, will she qualify for being a GS winner inside the TOP20, like ATP does?

I think she'll end the season inside the TOP8, but you never know with all her injuries and lack of playing.

I would assume they would give Serena automatic entry into it with a WC, considering she is a GS winner this year.

Look at this guys....The Top 8 singles players and Top 4 doubles teams in the Porsche Race to the Championships qualify by virtue of strong performances in the regular Sony Ericsson WTA Tour season; points are accrued in all 60 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour events, which are tallied to produce the Porsche Race to the Championships standings.
Seems there is not a wildcard for grand slam winners

GO Mary Pierce!!!!!!

Actually, there is a rule somewhere in there that they can allow special entries. Anyone go the full rules?

Take out Petrova and Schnyder and replace them with Pierce and Serena and we'll have the best field ever.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

There are no special entries at the WTA Champs. The points are the points...

I know Sveta hasn't won sh*t yet this season, but in a perfect world, I'd place Serena & Sveta in the last to spots. That would make up YEC's best field ever IMHO.

There is a small paragraph in the WTA Rules which says that the WTA can give out a WC to the YEC if they want to.

Yeah, the rule is there, but they won't do it.
