Justine and Jelena qualify for Madrid. Who will grab the other 6 spots?

It's on the wtatour website, here's a quote from the world #1:

"I have excellent memories of playing in Madrid last year and winning the Sony Ericsson Championships," said the 25-year-old. "The title meant a lot to me as I hadn't played since the US Open. I was unsure of how I would do, yet I wound up beating the Top 2 players Mauresmo and Sharapova to finish the year No.1. I am proud of the fact that for the second year in a row, I am the first to qualify for the Sony Ericsson Championships as one of the elite eight singles players and can't wait to go back there and be a part of that special atmosphere."

The top 8 as they stand now seems about right.

The other 6? Provided Venus plays a couple of big-ish tournaments post-US Open then I don't see it being anything other than the top 8 as it is at the moment. The only way anyone else gets in is through volume of tournaments.

Are you a raving mental case with awesome groundstrokes? I'll probably like you...

Doesn't Venus' Wimbledon title guarantee that she gets a spot as long as she finishes the race in the top 20? Or is this rule obsolete?

Indeed very nice news for Jelena and Justine. Expected, but nice to achieve that early.

Ooh, I don't know, if that is the case then it's game over as nobody's getting in apart from that.

Re: Justine and Jelena qualify for Madrid. Who will grab the other 6 spots?

Venus and Serena are pretty much guaranteed as long as they don't injure themselves I think. I just can't see how they can come down so much from their current form.

Kuznetsova and Ivanovic are locks too I think. I think Chakvetadze will def. make it. If Sharapova doesn't improve her form.. she'll have to fight it out with Mauresmo, Vaidisova and Hingis who I believe will all have good second halves of the season.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Provided they both play a decent amount, Venus and Serena will probably be up there. It would be nice to see Dani back at the champs and no end of year event would be complete without Lena D. Maybe if she reached it she could win a couple of matches
