Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5
It's a bit nerdy I agree but with a little effort you can manage. Let's have a look at #9 to #11 - here is the actual ranking stripped for YEC, Moscau and with their 17th result included instead of a zero in Moscau. Bartoli and Stosur have 120 and Caroline 125 included. That means they have to do more than these points - reaching the quarterfinal -to add points in Moscau to the rankings. Caroline is placed like this:
9 Samantha Stosur 3920
10 Marion Bartoli 3740
11 Caroline Wozniacki 3340
Caroline can't reach the 10th spot before YEC, but maybe she can get the rest in Sofia. Sofia gives 375 points to the winner + either 25 points for a lost game or 35 for a win. SO if she wins all matches in Sofia she will get 375+105-125(17th)=355 points. The 10th spot in the rankings also add a yearend bonus. She can hope that Bartoli is stopped in the quarter final in Moscau or she can do it herself in the semi. ANd then she has to hope that Bartoli won't play in Istanbul.
