The answer is going to be two letters

"If life gives you a lemon, make some lemonade"

"it's not considered cheating if you don't get caught"

"The greatest risk in life is not taking one"

"True friends stab each other in the front"

"Taking a shower with an umbrella is pointless"

I'll have to calculate the points scott, plus the US open hasn't even been played yet

I hope everyone who qualifies supports it

The way the "original" Grand Slam cup worked, was that the 8 finalists in Grand Slams got direct entry.

However, if one player made more than one final, then you would do a point system, which I'm not sure how it worked.

All I remember is Mirjana Lucic being the alternate one year and she got $50,000 for that in 1999

Well unless if she can do well in US Open, Regla Torres top 5 won't qualify either

Um, I'm interested to know who will qualify.. Let me get all the results and get back to you all.

Here are a tentative seedings:

1. Larisa Ferrer
2. Marteena Huubere
3. Ruflina Talianmonosko
4. Tanya Hingis
Selima Valentine*

* = will qualify regardless, Australian Open champion

Others looking to fill the remaining 3 spots (with best chances so far) include: Monica de la cal, Bryanne Applegate, Brenda Van Haak, Regla Torres, Gisele Noventz, Rosie Ribbons

Any of those 6 can seal a spot with a strong performance at the US Open, or some others could still also qualify if they have had consistent results in the other 3 slams.

Happy hunting

deftman: Australian Open finalist, Wimbledon quarterfinalist

Like I said this is very very tentative, US Open is still coming up, and I haven't even done the points for EVERYONE, this is only for those most likely to qualify, i.e. consistent slam results.

Since the tourney's in December I have a lot of time.

I may increase the draw to 16 anyway, which was the way the men had it, to make it more interesting.
