Not particularly badly. Clijsters can't gain much since she's got lots of points in her 18th best already. Venus can't gain any points since she won all three events she played in the run-up to the US Open.

Henin-Hardenne should remain #3 through the US Open.

A heck of a lot as Kim is over 1000 points ahead And given Henin has never won a title on american hardcourts or been in a final and Kim just wo her thrid final on em, Justine is going to have to play incredibly well and hope to put in her best US Open performance ever

yes, maybe but as Kim&Lleyton... said the difference is over 1,000 points and even though Justine has nothing to defend in San Diego, only quarters in Toronto and 4th round US Open, Kim doesn't have much either. Justine can get closer during the indoor season but I don't think before US Open.

well, it's difficult to know without knowing their schedule, Justine is playing Linz, Kim is playing Luxembourg, both are playing Zurich.

This is what each of them is defending after US Open

Kim:

Tokyo: 210
Leipzig: 94
Filderstadt: 378
Zurich: 107
Luxembourg: 200
LA: 750

Justine:

Leipzig: 127
Filderstadt: 1
Zurich: 169
Linz: 311
LA: 144

the whole difference is practically in two tournaments, the WTA Championships and Filderstadt, but I doubt Justine will play Filderstadt this year since she said she doesn't want to play 3 weeks in a row and I don't know if Kim is playing Shanghai that replaces Tokyo

Well then i think unless Serena plays just about a few more events Kim is due to take over as the new no.1

Kim does look likely to overtake #1 by the end of the Open (barring injury) as she only has to keep making SF as she has been doing.

It will be interesting to see if Serena then enters more events in the fall. I give Kim a good chance to defend most/all of her point from the fall of 2002 as she is playing just as well this year, and I don't see her having trouble defending her titles (except at the Championships).

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

I had thought Justine had a much worse indoor season last year than she actually had. Thanks for the info Fingon
