WTA Race to the champiionships

Could someone explain what that's all about and how come Lindsay is down at 36 (just checked it out on the SanexWTA site)

Lindsay was a finalist at the last years chase championhips - does this race have to do with who plays there, contibute to rankings, will Lindsay get protected seeding to play?

It is based on pts earned this year, so that's why Lindsay is so low, but as long as she isn't injured for the rest of the year, it would be safe to assume she would make the top 16, so you don't have anything to worry about it, plus she has moved up into the top 20 now even if she loses to Serena today...

Has 1116pts.. the player in 16th position doesn't have much more than that at the moment.. (have not worked out all the pts)

As for having a protective seeding, she only has that special ranking for another 3 events, so I would say No she won't, but her ranking will around the top 10 anyway, so she really doesn't need it..

There's a detailed WTA Race to Championship for Lindsay in the Tower of Power Forum. After 5 tournaments she's already on the brink of the top 16 - so she might just fulfill that goal for the end of the year
