Do you reckonthat the YEC is a 3-way fight for YE#1 ranking?

Can anyone support this with statistics please.......

But I am sure that Amelie, Justine & Maria will be tooth & nails over the #1 ranking come YEC if all of them is able to play!


Isn't it exciting!!!!

Mauresmo is truly not in the race. Mathematically, yes, but seriously, no. It's between Sharapova and Henin-Hardenne and judging by Sharapova's Linz draw, it looks like it could just be Sharapova.

No, because have Sharapova failed to win Zurich, she is out of the battle for #1 ranking....

Honestly it's most likely going to be Justine Henin Hardenne. I mean, Sharapova has been absolutely awesome post wimbledon with her performances in San Diego, Zurich, and New York, but she'd have to win both Linz and the YEC and have Justine H-H not reach the finals. Mauresmo of course could defend and still finish the year number 1, but all things aside, I'd say its 70% for Justine. I just don't see Maria winning both Linz and YEC. That's just a lot of matches to play at a very high level.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

maria needs to win linz, which is already a big step and then beat players who are ALL in the top 10 to overtake justine. i'd say justine has the WAY better chance. it's in her hands.

Theres people on Sharapovas side of the Linz draw that are looking to finish the year in the top 10 or top 20, they will be playing at their best this week and I wouldnt be all that surprised if one of them does surprise Maria and hammers her in straight sets

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

all justine needs 2 do is win a match at YEC 2 prevent amelie from the YE #1 ranking. maria basically needs 2 reach the final or win the title at linz & win the YEC 2 secure no.1 if justine doesn't make the semis or final.

i did a thread on year-end no.1 scenarios around 2 weeks ago so u needs 2 look in the general messages 2 find it if any1's interested.

that is provided that all three of them are healthy and 100%, then there will be an exciting battle...

I have to agree with you. As much as I'm a PovaPartisan, one has to be realistic. If Pova wins at Linz, she will still trail JHH by about 175 points!!!! So you are exactly right, Even if Pova wins the YEC, JHH would still be #1 if she is the other finalist. How anticlimatic would it be for Pova to win the YEC against JHH but miss the #1 ranking by about 20 points?!? Untold numbers of WTAWorld Posters would have a good laugh at that for months!!!

But, Pova does have that outside chance!

So does Ame, to a lesser degree! She is only 80 points behind Pova in the race now. If jhh and Pova have catastrophic failures at the YEC, then Ame could end up #1 at Year End. But it's looking very grim for Ame mathematically. With her forced withdrawals due to injury, she essentially threw in the towel. Ame will finish the year at #3, probably, but could still push Pova back to #3.

So, there is ranking excitement about the YEC in addition to some anticipated great matches.

can't wait 2 see who's gonna end up no.1 in the world. hope all 3 contenders (amelie, justine & maria) r fit & healthy for the YEC. personally i hope it's amelie or maria, but i'll still be happy 4 justine if she finishes as no.1. all 3 deserve year-end no.1 glory & whoever gets it deserves it.

i no this statement of mine here isn't about the no.1 ranking, but if maria wins linz this week she overtakes justine for the no.2 spot in the rankings not the race rankings. (there4 pushing justine back down to no.3). but that probably won't matter really if maria & amelie don't post solid results at the YEC as her & amelie have alot 2 defend at the YEC while justine doesn't.

If I remember rightly they didn't update the race rankings last year with the YEC points. It just finished with the tournament before the YEC. The race primarily exists to determine who qualifies for the YEC. If I'm right and they don't include the YEC itself - I don't think Justine can be caught.

My recollection is that at the end of the year there is:
  • The world rankings.
  • The World Champion who the ITF decide in consultation with the WTA tour.
  • The race missing the YEC points.
