View Full Version : With her win over Hantuchova, Schnyder pretty much clinched a spot on the GE list!?

She is almost set, unless 2 players pass her, she is top 16 coming out of US Open.

Franscesca and Silvia can pass her only if they make their slam final debut.
There are a couple of Russians that can pass her, if Elena Bovina stops Lindsay Davenport's 19 matches winning streak, and Nadia Petrova takes down #1 ranked player Justine from defending, they can pass her.

Otherwise, the only player that can pass her is Paola Suarez who probably will:).
But she almost clinches.....and the rule clearly indicates;).

Composition of Gold Exempt List
The 2004 Gold Exempt player list consists of 20 players composed as follows:

a. The Top 16 ranked singles players as of the computer rankings produced immediately following the previous years U.S. Open; plus

b. Four (4) Wild Card players to be chosen solely by the Worldwide Tournament Directors.

So Congrats to Patty for making the list....:D.

Pretty stupid not to give it to Patty anyway - invent a rule if there isn't one. Can't think of anyone else who entertains more or stands more chance of beating a top player outside the top 12.
