The race to London

The race to London has already started, the girls started the season in full force trying to earn as much points as possible. The top 56 in the world on 11 June 2012 will qualify for the Olympics, however, entry is limited to four players from a country. This means the girls must be in Top56 in the world AND a Top4 Romanian to be 100% sure they are going to London. There are 17 weeks until the deadline but lots of points to defend...

Week 1
1. Monica Niculescu - 32 WTA
- points to defend: 357

2. Irina Begu - 45 WTA
- points to defend: 594

3. Sorana Cirstea - 54 WTA
- points to defend: 462

4. Simona Halep - 60 WTA
- points to defend: 366

5. Alexandra Dulgheru - 61 WTA
- points to defend: 693

I think only Moni's place is secure, she's well ranked and has very few points to defend. All the others have to fight hard for the remaining 3 spots...
