YEC Event

Did the Williams qualify for this event? I don't know the rules thus reason for question.

Re: YEC Event

No. There are a lot of points eligible throughout the fall season.

Re: YEC Event

Basically, the rules are that once a player has scored enough ranking points to ensure there’s no possibility of finishing the year outside the top 8, then they qualify. So far 3 Women have done this:
#1 Justine Henin
#2 Jelena Jankovic
#3 Svetlana Kuznetsova
Ever heard the phrase “Race to the Sony Ericsson Championships”? because it works from the Race Rankings...

Re: YEC Event

I personally wish that the system was altered, to ensure that any player who wins a grand slam title during the course of a season automatically qualifies for the YEC there and then.

I really hope that we get the following YEC line-up this year (in no particular order): Justine, Serena, Venus, Ana, Jelena, Sveta, Maria, Anna C, and that injuries don't strike.

Justine Henin - Maria Kirilenko - Stephanie Dubois - Anna Chakvetadze - Aleksandra Wozniak - Tatiana Golovin
Flavia Pennetta - Caroline Wozniacki - Marie-Eve Pelletier - Alicia Molik - Dominika Cibulkova - Severine Bremond
Su-Wei Hsieh - Tsvetana Pironkova - Elena Vesnina - Alize Cornet - Ashley Harkleroad - Monica Niculescu

Re: YEC Event

I hope the top 8 in the race as of today are the top 8 that make the championships.

1 HENIN, JUSTINE BEL 4675.00 11 2 JANKOVIC, JELENA SRB 3725.00 22 3 KUZNETSOVA, SVETLANA RUS 3246.00 15 4 IVANOVIC, ANA SRB 2847.00 16 5 CHAKVETADZE, ANNA RUS 2556.00 17 6 SHARAPOVA, MARIA RUS 2430.00 11 7 WILLIAMS, SERENA USA 2391.00 8 8 WILLIAMS, VENUS USA 2190.00 10
Compare those names to..............

9 BARTOLI, MARION FRA 1802.00 24 10 PETROVA, NADIA RUS 1788.00 17 11 HANTUCHOVA, DANIELA SVK 1686.00 20 12 SAFINA, DINARA RUS 1667.00 19 13 PEER, SHAHAR ISR 1588.00 18 14 SCHNYDER, PATTY SUI 1535.00 20 15 VAIDISOVA, NICOLE CZE 1511.00 10 16 DEMENTIEVA, ELENA RUS 1447.00 16

If any of the 9 and below players reach it, i'll be disappointed.

Re: YEC Event

It depends on if they compete. I know that Venus did enter one carpet event but it is only tier III. They seldomly compete during the fall but it would be nice. I do think Venus will compete, Serena doubtful. Venus needs to finish the season on a good note, and have some confidence coming into the Australian open so she can have a good showing.

Re: YEC Event

serena and venus are so far ahead. no way could nadia, bartoli, and hant do it, Hant would need 700 points to do it. Bartoli needs 600.
