Meh, she'll get it back. She did say she would rather have a Grand Slam than the No 1 ranking, so maybe if she doesn't have the ranking, she'll have the Slam...

Roll on January 16th I say!!!

Maybe. The Australian final is one of the cheapest GS finals in terms of quality points that I've ever seen. If Lindsay made the final, and Kim lost around the QF, Lindsay could still be #1, especially if she had a decent Sydney result.

All hope is lost now. Kim is #1. And will be through at least September, unless she really fucks up.

Andrew you are so hang up on Lindsay being number 1. Let Kim have it Lindsay has won her slams as the 2, 3 , 2 seed. If Lindsay wins the oz open she'll get it back as winning the oz open is worth more than Kim winning Sydney. I would rather see Lindsay win the oz open next year than be ranked number 1 and here's a fact its going to have runs with Kim this year as Kim has nothing to defend until March then she has lots to defend and Lindsay has next to nothing until Wimbledon then after Wimbledon Kim has lot defend and Lindsay nothing. Also there are other players with a shot at it too. All I want next year is for Lindsay to win one last slam and have good year if this going to be her last which it looks like going to be. If she wins the oz open it could be a indian wells retirement.

That would be a VERY good reason to skip Miami.

Hong Kong? Is that a new tournament? I've never heard of it. Is it a Tier III?

Hong Kong is an exhibition event
In one hand it's a pity that Sydney is not on the list...but there's a hope for a late - entry - on the other hand, probably it should stay like so, coz it's not worth to risk an injury or illness, in OZ Open perspective
However, after AUS-Asian tour we'll see what the plans are for the next part of the season...
Hopefully it's a Grand Slam Victory in Melbourne and then some vacations before Indian Wells. And if it's not - the only remaining chance is Wimby, where our chances are always very high...maybe even highest

Of course I'd take Lindsay winning a Slam anyday over the ranking but I was really hoping that she would get over 100 weeks. That would be some achievement and it will be frustrating if she ends up stuck on 90-something weeks (not that it isn't a great achievement!)

I also would see Sydney as the last and only chance to get some match practice for the big Grand Slam Event. Entering a Grand Slam without doing a Tournament before to get involved with weather conditions and surface in Australia, is not so good.

Nearly every top player is joining at least one of the Australian Tournaments before Melbourne, such as Gold Coast or Sydney.
