Is Serena practically a Lock for #1 until the US Open?

Im not sure who all is denfending what, but Serena's about 2000 points ahead of Safina who is defending finalist points at the French open.

Venus Ebone Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

Hantuchova

I think Serena has points in Doha and Miami to defend. Except for RG quarters Serena has no clay points. I guess the stats people can elaborate.

Not much to defend, mainly the final Loss at Miami and the RG quarters. The 4 match losing streak last year might help her pointswise if she plays the US clay season.

Re: Is Serena practically a Lock for #1 until the US Open?

Serena has loads of points to defend coming up. Premier SF in Paris, Premier 5 semis from Dubai, Premier Mandatory final from Miami. Those points certainly add up to a substantial amount. Wozniacki has far less points to defend than Serena up until the end of March, and she will be a serious threat for the #1 spot if Serena carries on turning in her half-assed efforts at WTA tournaments like last year.

Those aren't enough to lose a 2000pt lead.

You don't get the point, the emphasis was on numerical, not #1.

You sure? Serena has 1200 points to defend in the next two months. If she were to lose on Saturday, and then not play / do badly in everything for a while, then all Wozniacki would need to do is maybe make a final and two semis at Dubai/IW/Miami, and she's in striking distance of #1. I'm not saying I think it'll happen, but it is possible.
