How far is Maria from the YEC?

Maria has already 1950, I don't remember the cut last year, but she is pretty close!
She could be the first one in Doha, with Serena and Jelena.

Re: How far is Maria from the YEC?

That's in 4 events, almost 500 points average.

Re: How far is Maria from the YEC?

around 4000 points i think for her to qualify
though the cutoff will be around 2800 points

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: How far is Maria from the YEC?

Henin and Jankovic were confirmed just before the USO last year and Kuznetsova just after. Henin obviously had been a dead cert for a while but I think mathematically it was still possible for her to not qualify until around July last year.

Serena Williams

Re: How far is Maria from the YEC?

Daniela should really be placed higher than that. After the Australian Open I expected her to finally be the consistent top 5 player we know she can be, but then it was back to the usual. I hope she can turn this season around soon, because right now that Australian Open semifinal is the only commendable result.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Zarina Diyas, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Those over 1000 pts look pretty safe for now...

Re: How far is Maria from the YEC?

Well, she's in Charleston at the moment, right? So I'd say roughly 7452 miles.

Last season TOP8 cutoff is about 2.400pts so no reasons to belive that this season atleast 2.500pts dont be enough. So after only 30% of season Sharapova reach about 80% pts which she need to qualify to YEC.
Two Serbians is also almost qualify and of Serena, Sveta and Henin we have big reasons to expect big improvment in points after claycourts. That means (if no injuries) already before Wimbledon 6 of 8 Doha YEC places will be reserved! All other girls (Dementieva, Hantuchova, Venus, Chakvetadze, Zvonareva, Radvanska, Davenport...) will compete for only two free places!

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

We? Who? Her fans? Don't egt me wrong, she's got talent but nobody expected her to be consistent. It'll never happen again, too bad for her
