Lindsay's race to the WTA Championships

Q. What kind of goals do you set for yourself during this comeback? Are you just -- do you think okay, I am going to get back to No. 1? Are you just thinking let me win a tournament, win a Grand Slam --

LINDSAY DAVENPORT: It's funny, I think probably my main goal as it stands is to try and qualify for the end of the year WTA Championships, top 16 to make it. It is going to be really tough to just start in July and try and qualify for that and it's in L.A. this year, obviously my hometown, and it would mean a lot to me for me to be able to play there. So that's something that I would really like to qualify for.

*****

Lindsay has stated in her press conferences this week that she main goal of the year is to try to qualify for the WTA Championships - so I thought we'd do watch her progress here.

Top 16 players qualify for the WTA Championships, this year to be held in LA.

As of 14 October, No 15 position is held by Lindsay *yay*

Also here's the breakdown of her points:

Race to WTA Championships

19/July/02 No 100+ 154 points added 156
26/July/02 No 73 - 145 points added 299
12/Aug/02 No 53 - 194 points added 493
26/Aug/02 No 36 - 225 points added 718
07/Sep/02 No 19 - 398 points added 1116
22/Sep/02 No 16 - 0 points added 1116
07/Oct/02 No 16 - 232 points added 1348
14/Oct/02 No 15 - 73 points added 1421

I think the 16th place can either go to the #16 player or it can be used as a wildcard. SO wta would be stupid not to give her a wild card if she didnt qualify automatically. I mean given her form since shes been back - shes obviously still tonnes better than others and deserves it.

But what i think she was tryign to say is the goal she has set herself is to qualify automatically and well hopefully she will

GO LINDSAY

How would you feel
If i was to kneel

well what they've done in previous years if a player is injured when it's WTA Championship time they go to the next ranked player aka #17 in line for the Championships.

I'm trying to remember the last time we've had a situation like this when a player was in the top 10 but due to injury so far down the ranks - because from what I remember no wildcard has been given in the past to those players - since there can be a disadvantage for those who might have actually played a lot of tournaments and felt they earnt their right (a prime eg was Tommy Haas last year with the ATP Masters in Sydney and because Ivanisevic won Wimbledon he got the last spot even though Haas was higher ranked and deserved his spot).

The people who have qualifed for the WTA Championships at this moment are Jennifer Capriati and Serena Williams because they've won grand slams.... now if Lindsay could pull off the biggest miracle and win the US Open she would have secured her spot straight away <g>

I hope Lindsay can qualify autamatically. If she reaches the US Open semis and then does reasonably well afterwards, and stays injury free, I think there is a possibility she could do it. If not I hope she can have a wild card. Like you say it would be daft not to give her one given her great comeback etc.

I shall watch with interest!

I don't think the question now is whether she'll qualify, I think the question is whether she'll be able to remain a top ten player by the year's end. Clijsters, Hingis, Dokic, Hantuchova and Davenport all want to be in there, but one of them can't make it. It'll be close.

I think Linds will stay in the Top Ten. Not too sure about Martina and even Kim to a point.

Go Lindsay
