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..
