Re: Where Michelle Larcher de Brito will finish this year?
As of this week, Michelle had 127 points. She earned 50 from Stanford (35 for reaching R2, plus 15 points for getting through qualifying). So she'll have 177 points next week, which indeed puts her in the Top 170.
I'd like to think she could hit the Top 100, but this week's No. 100 player has 346 points, which means Michelle would have to almost double her points in three events - a very tall task. A Top 120 finish is more reasonable, as the No. 120 player has 296 points. It'd still be a lot of points to gain, but I think she can do it.
