Race Points (Who's going to the YEC?)

Now that all the chances to get to the YEC in thousand point chunks are gone, let's see where we are. If somebody plays ever week, and wins every week, they can get about 1900 more points. Not that anyone is doing that, but the points are out there**. Recall that the YEC is 7+1, so Kuznetsova is in, while Radwanska is 'if someone else isn't sleeping with Larry Scott'. (Sharapova's out.)

For practical purposes,
Serena , Jankovic, Safina, Ivanovic and Dementieva are in. There just aren't that many points out there.

Venus, if she's healthy, is probably the '+1', if she doesn't make it outright, given the she's Wimbledon champ and one of the biggest draws on the tour.

01 3680 SERENA
02 3670 JANKOVIC
03 3123 SAFINA
04 2881 IVANOVIC
05 2855 DEMENTIEVA
** 2515 SHARAPOVA
07 2106 VENUS (06)
08 2022 KUZNETSOVA (07)
-- ---- -----------
09 1945 RADWANSKA (08)
-- ---- -----------
I think, realistically, 800 points is the best anyone outside the top ten is earning this fall. And it's going to take at least 2500 to make the YEC. Those two assumptions give the following players a chance.
-- ---- -----------
10 1795 ZVONAREVA
-- ---- -----------
Yup. That's pretty much it. Radwanska vs Zvonareva for the last spot. Anyone else if probably looking at winning both the remaining Tier I's, and a Tier II, to even have a shot. But, theoretically .....

Re: Race Points (Who's going to the YEC?)

I just hope Venus qualifies and is healthy/fit enough to play. She has only ever played the YEC twice!!!

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

Venus at the YECs, why does that picture just look so wrong to me?

Re: Race Points (Who's going to the YEC?)

Venus will not play the YEC, so Aga and Vera probably both will get in.

Re: Race Points (Who's going to the YEC?)

C'mon Caro, whore some more TIVs and get to Doha!!!

EDIT: Thank you Volcana. I was wondering about this situation as well. I hope both sisters play, but...you just never can count Venus in here. Unfortunately.

Re: Race Points (Who's going to the YEC?)

I hope Venus plays. She needs to make amends for losing that other match in Doha earlier

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

Re: Race Points (Who's going to the YEC?)

If Venus qualifies I have a feeling she'll play. She wants to try and get to top 4 so as not to run into Serena in the QFs.
But Doha I don't think Venus has every done well in Doha or Dubai or YEC. lol.
