Daniela, Elena or Marion Could Knock Maria Out Of Final YEC Spot
When the updated YEC race totals come out tomoow, the points standings for those who have not qualified will lokk like this:
5. Serena Williams - 2,766 points
6. Anna Chakvetadze - 2,628
7. Venus Williams - 2,470
8. Maria Sharapova -2,431
9. Danilea Hantuchova - 2, 096
10. Elena Dementieva - 2,022
11. Marion Bartoli- 1,989
Of the 4 who as poised to qualify, only Serena is sheduled to play in Zurich (Maria and Anna withdrew; Venus was not scheduled to play). Should she well there, she will qualify for the YEC. I don't know if Serena, Anna, Dnaiela, Marion or Elelna are playing in Linz the following week, but Anna should qualify between this week and theend of next week. Should Elena, Marion and Daniela play well down the stretch, there is a slight possibility that they could knock both Venus and Maria out of the YEC race, but it is more likely Venus will qualify because Daniela, Elena and Marion are 374, 448 and 481 points behind Venus respectively and they would have to win Zurich and Linz to do that and from the peliminary draw from Zurich (which will change with Maria's withdrawl), that doesn't seem likely. It is more likely that Maria would be the odd woman out becuase since she has apparently ended her 2007 season by withdrawing from Zurich and Linz, either Daniela, Marion or Elena can pass her for the final YEC spot.
