Kuznetsova's bid at #1 in 2007

Kuznetsova is back to her career high, mostly playing solid tennis and reaching the latter stages on more consistent basis.
this week in Zurich she'll be adding up more to her tally, edging within less than a 1000 points from henin and 2300 from mauresmo. her compatriot is also still in it and within 600 points from her reach.
but Kuznetsova doesn't have much to lose this year, and next years first quarter, relativly of course.
it will all clear up exactly how much she'll need to do after the year-end championships, but for the first time in her career kuznetsova will have a chance at the top rank just after the australian-open and until april (miami). from there on she's defending alot of points almost every week it seems, so unless she puts on an amazing clay season - she will probably lose the chance untill the weeks leading up to the USopen.
as for the April standings, by then -
she will be losing 332 points.
sharapova will be losing 1289 points
henin will lose 1053 points and momo loses a massive 2281
to add in petrova - she'll be losing 1082 points
so on safe points:

mauresmo 3741-2281 = 1460
Henin 3473-1053 = 2420
sharapova 3037-1289 = 1748
kuznetsova 2408-332 = 2076
petrova 2286-1082 = 1204

re-organized -
Henin 2420
Kuznetsova 2076
Sharapova 1748
Mauresmo 1460
Petrova 1204

so henin is still the safest bid on #1, and she'll probably do good at the YEC as well, confirming her spot at the top, but add the fact that the point changes can boost Svetlana up at the aussie open, and you have her slight crack at #1, or at least a new career high at #2.
it's going to be a very intresting year-end tourny. should she reach the SF, she'll possibly be the newest mmber of the top3 club, the 4th russian consecutivly in it to my memory (myskina #2 , sharapova #1, petrova #3).
thoughts?

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.

It's a very realistic possibility for the future sometime, but there's a lot of pressure on her to do so much in such a short space of time, so I can't see it happening until 2008.

Daniela Hantuchova.

all Sveta is needed : to play more better indoors and starting to beat Henin Of cos not to lose others sides

bad for her YEC is indoors


Petrova before RG had huge chance as well (esp if you add her indoors fall season but injured!

This year Sveta played Hopman Cup, and skipped Tier I Tokyo, where she made the SF's last year.

In 2007 Nadia is playing Hopman Cup, so Sveta should start the year-
Sydney, Melbourne, Tokyo
and get lots of points early in 2007

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there

that would be her best chance. SFs of each should be enough on her part (still, world number 4 is expected to reach at least the QF of most given tournaments) but the most important part is reaching AO QF at least.
then - should mauresmo and henin not reach the finals, she has her chance.

Then again congrats to her if she reaches number one early next year, but without winning a grand slam on the last 365 days, sheŽll be a fake.

Sveta has already won a major, but never has been #1.
This is a natural progression.
Do both, then get the 2nd major

Does Sveta have a chance at AO? How does AO surface suit her game? Any thoughts?

When they closed the roof in her match against Lindsay, Sveta lost her focus.
I think her best chance is RG.
But she has an outside chance in Melbourne
