Kim can finish #1, no?

She is #3 in the race to the championships, behind 2 injured players.

Wouldn't it be possible for Kim to finish #1 when ALL of the attention was on Davenport and Sharapova. Did nobody see this coming? I sure didnt!

By the way I think Sharapova now has more points to defend for the rest of the year than Lindsay. She had better do well at the yr. end championships

What would be amazing is if Clijsters can get to Number One without reaching the QF of a Grand Slam. Could you imagine her winning Indian Wells, Miami, and YEC and finishing the year at Number One?

Let them eat cake.

Even tho if she got to the SF or better at the USO and finishes the year at no.1 people are still going to argue how she doesn't deserve the number 1 position.

I don't think anybody would argue at that. I mean, who would have done better than Indian Wells, Miami, Birmingham, Stanford, Los Angeles titles and US Open F. That is one, damn-good year for me. But, I wouldn't want her being Number One without that US Open result.

Let them eat cake.

Nope. This will only become correct after USO where Lindsay defends about 360 points more than Maria.

If Sharapova is ranked #1 in the rankings, and Lindsay is #1 in the race, Sharapova has more points carried over... doesnt that make sense?

The thing is that the majority of people hate Kim much less than Sharapova

it would actually be a bit funny...

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.

You right. I screwed up that one.
Maria has fewer points to defend until YEC but not for the rest of the year.
