Currently, without Wimbledon, the top ten looks like this:
So wow...a few things jump out at me here:
1. If Venus doesn't make the semi-finals, she will probably be ranked outside the top twenty
! Consider she must beat Mauresmo to get to the semis. While obviously she can beat Mauresmo, she could also lose. It's not a guaranteed victory by any means. But I want an American up there, so go Vee...
2. Pierce is out of the top ten. Myskina, Vaidisova and Hingis are all fighting for that spot. Venus could technically get it if she won the tournament, Myskina lost first round, and Vaidisova and Hingis fell before round 3, but I don't see that happening. Hingis and Vaidisova need to make the quarters to reach the top ten, but also need to go two rounds further than Myskina.
3. If Hingis and Vaidisova make the semi-finals, as long as Myskina is not in the semis as well, Hingis and Vaidisova will be top ten, with Pierce, Davenport and Myskina falling out.
4. Davenport is safe in the top ten unless 2 of the 3 happen: Hingis makes the semis, Vaidisova makes the semis, Myskina makes the quarters.
5. Kim has a shot at the number one, but she must go probably two rounds further than Mauresmo to get to no. 1.
6. Justine has an outside chance at no. 1, but will probably have to win the tournament to get there.
So, what is the top ten going to look like post Wimbledon? I say:
1. Kim Clijsters
2. Amelie Mauresmo
3. Justine Henin-Hardenne
4. Maria Sharapova
5. Nadia Petrova
6. Elena Dementieva
7. Svetlana Kuznetsova
8. Nicole Vaidisova
9. Patty Schnyder
10. Martina Hingis
