Caro might be in turmoil, but she has 9900 to 7000 lead over #2
Kim is holding 2 majors and going for a USO threepeat.
But this year 3 different players have slams & a 4th is #1 all year but 1 week.
Of course you are correct. If Kim makes No 1 she will not feel
the pressure. She is an established multi-slam winner.I was
speaking of the slamless 1's.
Yes, Caro has a big lead, but she has a lot of points to defend,
if her troubles continue they'll start to fall off rapidly.
Frankie, Petra, and Li each have a slam but they are not No 1 yet.
I don't think Frankie will make it. Li is getting older and hasn't
had great results lately. Petra is a good candidate and is in a
wait and see mode. I hope her early and easy dismissal in Toronto
was just a fluke.
