What does Elena have to do to be #3?

Now that Ana is out, what does Elena have to do to be #3, and can Dinara get to #3 this week?

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

If Elena makes the semis she will pass Ana. Dinara has to make it to the final to pass Ana.

Elena and Dinara can be some combination of 3 and 4 at the end of Tokyo.

So both Lena and Dinara could be at career highs Monday.

If Elena wins her next match she is #3 unless Dinara gets further in the tournament than her.

Come on Elena.

Short answer: continue winning matches.

I don't see why she can't even become #1. After all she is right now capable of beating anybody.

#1 has been a long time goal of Elena's. Definately getting very close to it.

Re: What does Elena have to do to be #3?

I think for some strange reason that Elena will never improve the number 4 as career highest rank

Re: What does Elena have to do to be #3?

Forget #3. Elena could easily be number one by dropping her mortal guise and appearing as the supreme goddess she is, smiting her opponents with Olympian thunderbolts.

Unfortunately, she's just too sporting to take advantage of her divine status.

Re: What does Elena have to do to be #3?

She really has a great chance if she defends moscow point/wins another tier1(hope here).

Before dubai elena doesn't have that much to defend. If she can just improve her results in australia(which has sucked over the years, but i can't see why not with this form) she's 1 of the maincontenders for #1. She was only 2 matches away already.

Re: What does Elena have to do to be #3?

Ideal for Tokyo:
Kuznetsova def. Jankovic
Dementieva def. Srebotnik
Kanepi def. Safina
Petrova def. Radwanska (doesn't really matter)

Dementieva def. Kuznetsova
Petrova/Radwanska def. Kanepi

Dementieva def. Petrova/Radwanska

She'd then have 3790, while JJ would have 3894. But then JJ will be playing four weeks in a row after that, so it kind of makes no difference so Elena has no shot at getting above #3 this year.

But I'll accept #3. Hopefully she can do it with a title here.

She'll also get some YEC points, at least 105. Unfortunately Jelena doesn't have much to defend until the Australian Open, so Elena will need to win some of these tournaments.
