Hantuchova to Top Ten
Well, it's not quite cast in stone, but close.
Sandrine retired. She was #11.
Martina just pulled out of the summer, and her
agent said she won't submit an entry for the US Open.
That's 618 points she won't defend, leaving her with 2196.
That makes her #10.
Hantuchova is currently #11, with Sandrine gone.
Hantuchova's 4 worst events are worth 108 points total.
01 5742 Serena Williams
02 4917 Venus Williams
03 3947 Jennifer Capriati
04 3906 Monica Seles
05 3168 Kim Clijsters
06 3076 Jelena Dokic
07 3005 Justine Henin
08 2637 Lindsay Davenport
09 2285 Amelie Mauresmo - Has points to lose, but she'll be defending them.
10 2196 = 2814 - 0618 Martina Hingis
11 1843 = 1951 - 0108 Daniela Hantuchova
12 1685 = 1685 - 0000 Silvia Farina Elia
13 1447 = 1711 - 0264 Elena Dementieva
In practice, that means Dani has to earn about 350 points by the end of the USOpen to make #10.
Not at all difficult. so barring injury, Hantuchova will be top ten by the end of the US Open.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
