Ranking Question (numba 2)
I was taking a look at Venus' rank. It Looks to me she has number 2 secured. She isn't/hasn't had any trouble this year w/ anyone except Serena. She has around 4800 pts right now. If she gets to the final and looses she should have around 5100pts. If she wins she should have around say 5300pts. Then take a look at her clay tournies. Hamburg will be dropped. So I say she has around 5000-4800pts w/ that gone. Drop Amelie Island 4800-4600pts. Then she has added J&S which has a weak field, hantuchova being the 2nd set behind her, its a Tier 2 so she should gets some good pts. If she wins that she should have around 5000pts again. Then there is Rome where she has no pts to defend. IF she gets to the finals there or wins she could have around 5400-5200pts. And talking about Kim, i say semis is the best she will do here (Miami). She may end up w/ around 4600-4500pts. You take off her Hamburg she is down to about 4300-4200pts. She has pts to defend in Berlin and Rome I believe. But I say going into the French w/ the way Venus has been playing she should have around 5400-5200pts, and Kim should have around 4500pts. What do you all think? Venus did drop tournies, but has added 1 which should cushion her. We all thought she might not be thinking about her ranking. But she has added Warsaw, and should w/out a doubt win, I think she realized dropping Amelie Island, and loosing those Hamburg pts alltogether, she needed to do add. She has, so I think that is what the rankings will be like going into the French. What do you all think?
