And the last year, the race leaders (Wozniacki, Sharapova) reached 6000+ in late August/early September

It's amazing how far the WTA has come in a couple years. We went from slamless top 2 Wozniacki and Zvonareva and the grand slams being divvyed up like Spring Fling Queen crown in Mean Girls, to an utterly dominant top 2 in Maria and Azarenka with a top 5 rounded out by true threats like Kvitova and Serena. It's awesome.

I gotta say I love it, and I can't think of a feistier opponent to share the throne with Maria. Hopefully they meet many more times throughout the year.

The top eight in the race right now are the eight I expect to be at the YEC with maybe Li or Caro displacing Errani.

But I agree with this post 100%. Such domination at the top.

Seriously LOL @ the Mean Girls thing, it's so hilarious
But even if I have nothing against Caroline and Vera... well, it's true. Honestly WTA has really better quality in top 5 now.

And there's dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight
And silence that speaks so much louder that words,
Of promises broken

Exactly. I like Vera a lot (Wozniacki not so much) and I have nothing against either of them, but I never truly felt they were the top 2 players in the world even when they were ranked as such.

Maria has already beaten her end-of-2011 ranking-points score
