WWB #3 at the end of the year?

Maria's lose to Stephens makes her one point above Agnieszka in the Race, 5891 to 5890. Na Li has a chance on paper I guess.

Aga. If Maria doesn't play the YEC

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?

Re: WWB #3 at the end of the year?

Well Aga. Even if she goes 0/3 at the YEC she'd finish above Maria. (Unless she plays, which I'm very certain she won't)

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.

Aga.

Masha would retire after 1 or 2 matches in the group. Li's chance is close to zero like those never-show-up river card in Texas hold'em after her loss to Kvitty today...

Re: WWB #3 at the end of the year?

Does it really matter? The seedings will be the same for AO anyway. Not sure any of these top players would consider year end number three to be important.

Number one is important for the accomplishment. Number two and four for the seedings.

Nah, finishing a year as the no.2 player in the world is pretty impressive.....kinda like making a GS Final(not quite as good as winning itm but still notable for making the final).

Yes i agree, just saying that for Sharapova, Li Na or Radwanska it is not so important who is number three. Top 5 in the most popular sport in the world (for women) is of course impressive.

Re: WWB #3 at the end of the year?

Aga seems the obvious choice, unless Maria makes a comeback out of nowhere and outperform her at the YEC

Re: WWB #3 at the end of the year?

What are the chances both Na and Aga overtake Maria?

Re: WWB #3 at the end of the year?

only aga has a chance if maria decides to skip istanbul. if maria plays, she'll probably stay as number 3

If i am not mistaken, you must include YEC to your best 16, if she goes 0-3, Aga actually will lose 15 points and would be behind Sharapova.

Sharapova will get a zero-pointer if she skips YEC, won't she? If they both play, the one who plays better will end at #3. Na and Petra still have a remote shot, but it's unlikely.
