Can Hantuchova/Sugiyama qualify for Madrid?

Is this even possible given that they are still in Zurich and Suarez/Pascual and Peschke/Schiavone are both out?

What do they need to do in Zurich and possibly Linz (assuming they are both playing there) to qualify?

If they win Zurich they'll be in spot #4. Finalist points aren't enough to overtake Peschke & Schiavone, but as it stands they are ahead of Ruano Pascual/Suarez.

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.

Further calculations have prooved that (I took last year's points, I figure they remain the same? not sure), should Hantuyama lose tomorrow, they need to win Linz to pull ahead of Peschke/Schiavone.

Furthermore, should they win tomorrow and reach the finals, they'd need to reach the Semifinals of Linz to overthrow them.

Or there's the simple solution of just winning Zurich

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.
