Race to the Championships: Doubles

1 Black, Cara (zim) / Huber, Liezel (rsa) 2295.00 12
2 Raymond, Lisa (usa) / Stosur, Samantha (aus) 1866.00 9
3 Ruano Pascual, Virginia (esp) / Suarez, Paola (arg) 1650.00 5
4 Martinez, Conchita (esp) / Ruano Pascual, Virginia (esp) 1574.00 10
5 Kuznetsova, Svetlana (rus) / Molik, Alicia (aus) 1486.00 6
6 Hantuchova, Daniela (svk) / Sugiyama, Ai (jpn) 1477.00 11
7 Likhovtseva, Elena (rus) / Zvonareva, Vera (rus) 1400.00 8
8 Black, Cara (zim) / Stubbs, Rennae (aus) 1328.00 8
9 Medina Garrigues, Anabel (esp) / Safina, Dinara (rus) 1303.00 15
10 Stewart, Bryanne (aus) / Stosur, Samantha (aus) 1287.00 13

Right now, those are the standings.
Black/Huber are guaranteed a spot, therefore there are THREE more spots available.

Who do you think is likely to fill those spots?
I think Raymond/Stosur will be there, along with Virginia and Paola, and Ai/Dani. I hope ^.^

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

I don't know x.x I'm just going with what's on the site. They said Huber had access, but I don't know if they have to play, in which case another team will probably have to play. I'm really dumb ^^

I dont think Suarez will play due to her injury, so I would imagine it would be

BLACK and STUBBS
RAYMOND and STOSUR
PASCUAL and MARTINEZ
SUGIYAMA and HANTUCHOVA

Shame for Svetlana as she could have qualified had it not been for Alicia's ear infection.

It's a tad confusing. Is Paola even playing for the YEC? If she doesn't and Hantuchova/Sugiyama and Likhovtseva/Zvonareva get ahead of Martinez/Rauno Pascal does that mean Rauno Pascal doesn't go to the championships?
That seems a little unfair since she's played pretty good with two different partners this year.
I haven't even seen Huber play for a while. With Huber, Paola, and Molik not playing much does this system have an alternate solution for players going to the championship?
Here's an example,
Like maybe Cara Black would like to play with Renae Stubbs. How about divide the points of each player with their partner and with their other partner.
So 2295/2 +1287/2= 1791. That should be enough to make the championship.
This idea would help even Ruano Pascal a little.
