Stosur can just overtake LiNa if she wins Moscow & Osaka (Max 4420)

Stosur with 3 (or 4?) career titles winning 2 in a row under immense pressure is not going to happen.

Sure, but what does it have to do with Kerber?

I'm addressing the formal aspect of the qualification process (exactly same thing that the WTA do in their wbsite when announcing succesive qualifiers). Virtually, both Angie & Petra could be sure of their berths already a couple of weeks ago.

I know it unlikely but can Caroline get IN YEC winning both China Open and Moscow? and the rest lose in next possible rds...


He say on ES there no way to get IN...

If Li won't get into the SF and won't play any further tournaments, Wozniacki has to win Beijing and Moscow to pass her.

Li has now 4416 points, 4526 points if she will reach the QF.
Wozniacki would have 4545 points (4200 + 470 - 125) if she would win in Beijing and Moscow .

Stranger things have already happened in tennis...

But I agree that this is extremely unlikely.

Caroline has another big match coming up. If she loses tomorrow and Bartoli wins, she will have to win Moscow against another player than Bartoli to finish in the top 10

Re: 2012 RACE TO ISTANBUL YEC (After Tokyo) - 4 players qualified, 4 spots left for g

Li 4416 points
Stosur 3910 points

If Stosur will won both Osaka and Moscow, she will have 4420 points (3910 + 280 - 120 + 470 - 120)
Li has to win her 3rd round match in Beijing then there will be no more chance for Stosur to pass her.


Stosur, Bartoli and Wozniacki couldn't pass Kerber, Kvitova and Errani anymore.

Actually Kerber,Kvitova,Errani is through to YEC
The last spot is for Li/Stosur/Bartoli/Caro

From my POV,
Caro actually has a very tough road ahead.
She has Kerber and sharapova to beat to get to SF
Both are very tough for Caro.
Bartoli will be in SF easily
Li has only Aga to beat to be in SF.

So it looks like Li Na almost has the 8th spot locked up and Stosur will be the alternate?

Good news. I would like to see another Petra-Li Na match at YEC. They know each other very well from training sessions and always have good matches. All of their last three encounters were nail-biting three-setters.
