Thought I would take this opportunity to update everyone on the Road to Bali.
The top ten ranked winners of international tournaments in 2009 that are NOT
eligible to compete in the YEC may participate in Bali.
The table below lists the winners of international tournaments in 2009, their current WTA rank and their current race standing.
UPDATED 20th April (after Barcelona)
Player, (Current WTA Rank), [Current Race Standing]
Dementieva, (4), 
Azarenka, (8), 
Wozniacki, (9), 
V.Williams, (3), 
Zvonareva, (7), 
Bartoli, (13), 
Jankovic, (6), 
Medina Garrigues, (21), 
Szavay, (27), 
Martinez Sanchez, (42), 
Rezai, (43), 
Vinci, (46), 
Rybarikova, (48), 
Wickmayer, (55), 
Tanasugarn, (82), 
Kvitova, (63), 
Anyone in the current top 8 of the Race would be ineligible to compete in Bali if it was held now. At this stage, the only people eligible to compete are (in order of current WTA ranks):
3) Medina Garrigues
5) Martinez Sanchez
Obviously, this will change based on new winners, changes in ranks and race standings. I thought it was good to do this just to keep people updated and create more interest in this new innovation of the WTA tour.
I'll be curious to see how the tournament pans out.
Hope it provides for some interesting reading!
