I expect she will reach QFs or above in these tournaments just like she did in 2012 I.W and Miami. She's more mentally stable when she doesn't have many points to defend.

Doubt it. She had a decent enough start to the season but she completely melted down in Paris and that bled into Wimbledon. It's not like she's played well at the US Open recently, either.

Finally Na gets her own thread...

She will not I think... Consider her performance of her last two USO, and her overall performance in GS this year, she will probably loss R1 to Pervak or Cirstea. She will then loss all those QF in Tokyo, Beijing, Cincy and Montreal like how she choke in Madrid, Rome, Stttgart and Sydney.

BTW, her mental strength is only determined by her brain, but not the points she is going to defend. Example is her loss in Wimbledon coz she only have 100 points to defend but she still could not gain...

Re: Will NaNa Return to Istanbul SEWTA YEC in 2012 ???

As it stands, Petra, Sam, Na and Marion will probably fight it out for the final two spots. Sam and Marion have better records in the final stages of the year (the USO series (Sam) and Asian swing (Marion)) than Petra and Na, but there are some question marks hanging over all their heads atm in terms of form, so it's tough to call. I'd say it's most likely the current top 8 will make it through, but Na has a chance of playing in Istanbul for sure, as an alt if not as a direct entry.

Sam is very good on US and Asian hard courts and based on how both Sam and Petra played last year during this part of the season it is almost impossible to imagine that Sam who is less than 400 points behind Petra won't overtake her.

The battle for the last spot will be between Na and Petra, almost without doubt. I'd say Petra has to be the favourite with her lead of 600+ points.

And yes one can say there isn't that big a gap in the race between Sammy and Na but Sammy has done substantially better during this part of the year than Na for the last few years.

Li at 7 Needs to keep it up though - it's mighty close

Sam now needs to pull her finger out - about 1500 behind Petra and 1000 behind Na.

Seems Sara is most vulnerable as she's not picking up big scores - lots of little ones that aren't moving her up any further.

Na is 7th [3992 vs 3820 of Errani] in the RACE now.

The actually 14 tournament RACE is as following, as the points from USO and BJ should be added later:

============================
5 Kerber 4675[14]
6 Kvitova 4560[14]
-------------------------
7 Li Na 3992[14]
8 Errani 3720[14]
-------------------------
9 Stosur 3070[14]
10 Bartoli 2725[14]
11 Wozniacki 2671[14]
12 Cibulkova 2165[14]
13 Ivanovic 1923[14]
14 Kirilenko 1860[14]
============================

just wonder if she will qualify for Istanbul again or whether her season will end like this:
