Implications on Serena/Maria for YE#1?
Vika's points are just so top (early of the year) heavy. Bar the USO Final, there's going to be relatively little to keep her afloat post Wimbledon if she slumps next year
She will still be 1000 points over Serena and 500 over Maria in the Race. all of them don't need to drop points for beijing. but Sharapova has to drop 120 points for YEC and Vika has to drop only 1 point or 125 if she decides to play linz and get at least semis. i think only Vika will play tournies after china in linz.
their max points by the end of the year.
Azarenka 11565 (assuming she plays linz)
which means Serena has to win both events YEC and Bejing to get no. 1,
with Vika losing finals of Bejing and losing semifinals of YEC or worse results.
