Re: Henin Posed To Surpass Davenport in Weeks at #1
Henin has a lead of over 1100 points over #2. If Kuznetsova wins tomorrow, she can cut the lead to 800, but Henin basically only has the Tour Championships and the semis in Paris to defend between now and Miami next year, while Kuznetsova has two wins coming off right after the Open and has played over 17 tournaments besides. After Kuznetsova come Jelena (who can only add the difference between 110, her 17th best, and whatever points she earns in any tournament from this point on) and Sharapova (defending big indoor points from last year). If Henin wins tomorrow, her lead goes up to 1400, with no points to defend in Australia. I'd say Henin's going to be #1 for a good long while whatever happens tomorrow.
