That's unless she defends those points successfully. She's scheduled to play in Toronto.
If she now gets to quarters, she will have to play well to defend her top tenner status, she has fair amount of points to defend for the rest of the year, but so have others:
Pierce should keep going down, unless she defends her points from San Diego W, USO F etc...
Davenport doesn't have points to defend before USO(QF 2005), so could gain some points, if she plays, but after that she has a load of tournament wins and points to defend. She would have to play extremely well to even hold her ranking position.
Safina, despite having a surprise loss yesterday, might get hovering around 10 too. Hingisova will make top10 in near future, she has no points to defend and should be able to top Vaidisova's ranking soon.
I look at my year-end-crystal-ball and see Nicole topping Myskina, Schnyder, Davenport, Pierce... Wait, I see a number... It's 6, no it's 01, unclear, what this means? Wait, I'm holding the ball upside down...
