Yup, but Gibbs now has passed with her 80 points for 2R at New Haven.
Not for long...lol!
Mal, currently at #252 (has just added 160 points to her current total of 230 points and is projected to reach #157 based on making it to R3
If she does the impossible and beats Maria, she'll add 280 points and will pass Lauren Davis for a ranking of #136. Amazing considering that this is only her 5th tournament on the tour. Mal has won 90% of her matches this year (18-2) and has 2 of her last 4 tournaments.
I don't think Nicole can pick-up 146 points over her next 2 challenger events (Redding +50, Albuquerque +110), unless she wins them both
