Re: venus still 8 on race
Your calculation is off.
As of 10/8/07, these were the standings in the YEC for Maria and Venus:
7. Maria Sharapova - 2,430 points
8. Venus Williams - 2,405 points
This week, Maria earned 1 point for playing in the second round of the Moscow tournament; Venus earned 65 for playing in the SF of the Banghcok tournament, so the race totals as of 10/15/07 will be:
7. Venus Williams - 2,470 points
8. Maria Sharapova - 2,431 points
Becuase Maria has withdrawn from Zurich and Linz, unless she play in Quebec, these totals will stand and Venus will go to the YEC as a 7 or 8 seed. Maria is the one who is in danger of not qualifying, not Venus.
