No.. Ana will be number 12 with the QF. To get into the top 10 she would need to make semis and hope Bartoli loses to Sharapova in QF.

Regarding her ranking seed for AO, Ana needs a strong asian swing since she won't be playing any tournament in the first week of the year (she will be in the glorified exho Hopman Cup).

Ana has 777 points to defend. Caro has 524.

The best way to see things is looking at the race. Currently Ana is 13th in the race with 2423 points. Caro is 11th with 2876. Between them is Cibulkova at 12th with 2445 points. Bartoli is 10th with 3345 points. Whoever gets more points in the tournaments left will end ahead. The issue is.. Ana is the one with less tournaments on her schedule, and she will be playing Hopman Cup in the first week of january (week of AO seedings). Ana needs a very strong asian swing to be top 12 for AO. And we've seen how that can make a difference in draws.

Why wouldn't she play Moscow and some Asian MM? The field is usually not that strong in Moscow.

I believe in her for Asia and she will add some tournaments, as well. Beijing is a good place for her and her game suits that surface a lot.

I don't know.. Maybe she doesn't want to..

Ana hasn't entered any tournament, so she would need WCs.

Re: Ana's Ranking Thread (A look at her progress)

I hope she doesn't play Moscow, that tournament and that surface are awful. Hopefully she shows up in Tokyo, Beijing, Linz and Luxembourg. And Fed Cup, of course.

Re: Ana's Ranking Thread (A look at her progress)

Ok... I feel like I need to write this..

If Vinci makes the USO final and Ana loses the QF, Vinci will get past Ana in the ranking. She only needs to be one round further than Ana to get past Ana in the race.

Damn Shvedova.. had MPs against Vinci in the 2nd round.

C'mon, Izzy, stop worrying. I mean, if Junkulescu wins Tokyo and Beijing, she'll be ranked higher than Ana, y'know. It's gonna be fine.

So it's more important than ever to add some tourneys, the top 12 seed worked immediately she needs to keep it now

Re: Ana's Ranking Thread (A look at her progress)

Talent wise, Ana is a top 5 along with Serena, Maria, Vika and Petra.

Ana is just unlucky to draw Serena for QF, but she may surprise us because that's why they play the game.

Yes.. a top 12 seed really made a difference.

I think its very unlikely for Ana to be top 12 for AO though TBH.. she would need a very strong asian swing.. Ana is 13th in the race, only 20 points ahead of 14th Vinci. She is planning on playing fewer tournaments than anyone around her, and she wont be playing in the first week of next year. So even if she ends the year ranked 12, unless she makes up some room with big results in Asia, she is likely to get left behind by someone who plays Brisbane or Auckland.
