As of tomorrow, it looks as if Maria will fall to at least number nine in the race because Elena D. and Vera play each other and regardless of who wins, either will have enough points to knock her out of the top eight. Svetlana and Venus look to be the next ones who are in danger. Both really need to win their fourth round matches if they want to stay in the top eight because if Jennifer reaches the SF, one of them has a good chance of being knocked out of the top eight and at this point, Venus is more vunerable than Svetlana is. If Serena loses before the semifinal and Venus and Svetlana win, she coudl find herself on the outside looking in. Other than than, I don't see the top four players falling lower than number four unless one of the people I mentioned wins the whole thing and that is a big IF.

Well it's safe to say either Lindsay, Amelie or Justine will be in the no 1 position at the end of the US Open - since noone else can overtake them.

Does anyone know how far each of them has to go so they won't be overtaken?

ie: Does Lindsay or Amelie have to get to the SF, win the tournament to guarantee the no 1 position in the Race till at least after the US Open?

This is the updated Champions Race as of completion of Round of 16 play for the bottom half of the draw:


1 4 Lindsay Davenport (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=players&playerid=DAL001) USA 3679 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=rankingspoints&playerid=DAL001&race=yes) 168 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=points&tourid=20040830FLU&drawtype=S) 14

5 11 Serena Williams (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=players&playerid=WIS001) USA 2273 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=rankingspoints&playerid=WIS001&race=yes) 278 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=points&tourid=20040830FLU&drawtype=S) 9

8 9 Svetlana Kuznetsova (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=players&playerid=KUS003) RUS 2089 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=rankingspoints&playerid=KUS003&race=yes) 160 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=points&tourid=20040830FLU&drawtype=S) 17



9 7 Maria Sharapova (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=players&playerid=SHM007) RUS 2084 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=rankingspoints&playerid=SHM007&race=yes) 92 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=points&tourid=20040830FLU&drawtype=S) 14
10 10 Vera Zvonareva (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=players&playerid=ZVV001) RUS 1994 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=rankingspoints&playerid=ZVV001&race=yes) 136 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=points&tourid=20040830FLU&drawtype=S) 19
11 8 Jennifer Capriati (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=players&playerid=CAJ001) USA 1956 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=rankingspoints&playerid=CAJ001&race=yes) 264 (http://tenniscorner.net/index.php?corner=W&action=points&tourid=20040830FLU&drawtype=S) 11


I only included the top 11 as the others who are still in the tournament on the top half such as Petrova, Asagoe, Daniilidou and Pierce do not have enough points to be considered. As expected, Elena has entered the top 8 and will most likely stay there unless Venus, Jennifer and Svetlana make the semifinal, which is unlikely for Kuznetsova, and somewhat likely for Venus and Jennifer, thought I don't see Jennifer getting past Serena is the QF. It looks as if the only way Venus can stay in the top eight if she loses tomorrow is if Svetlana loses and Jennifer loses on Tuesday. If she wins tomorrow, then I don't see her dropping out of the top eight. The same holds true for Svetlana; if she loses tomorrow, the only way she stays in the top eight is if Jennifer loses Tuesday, but if she wins and Venus loses, then she would be ahead of Venus. For Jennifer to enter the top eight, she would have to win on Tuesday and Svetlana would have to lose or Venus would have to lose tomorrow and Svetlana would have to win. The most likely scenario; the top eight you see right now is what the top eight is going to be after the USO ends.

Do the top 16 got to the championships this year? Or the top 8? I haven't been paying attention to the format. I'm really wondering if Kim has any chance at all.

Just 8, but she's playing this fall in hopes to make it to re-re-defend her LA title.

So Maria is out of the top 8 for now. Is she granted a spot in the YEC as a Grand Slam winner, like they do for the men's Masters ?

Yes, but she would be in a better position if she won today, which I hope happens.:)

No.

She has to earn enough points to be in the top eight. If she doesn't, then she does not qualify. She would have been a much better position if she had performed better this summer.

thanks for posting it.

the first four has pretty much locked their spot in LA.

the rest four are up for grabs. I'd say that both Sharapova and Zvonareva have as many chances as Capriati, V. Williams and S. Williams considering that they will play more tournaments than 3 Americans in the fall. Unless, Jenn. Venus and Serena changed their usual schedules (basically to play 1 or 2 tournaments in the fall)

gossipcom
Sep 7th, 2004, 12:02 AM
lol fifiricci.

Big question is who will be the first person accepted into the Champs - imo it'll either be Davenport or Mauresmo - Before Davenport's win over Williams, Mauresmo had tightened the gap to 293, but after the Davenport's 4R win it could go out to approx. 357 points again.

I see Venus in great danger of not being at the year end tournament unless she goes to Europe and plays the indoor season. Kunetsova could slide by her this tournament to take the #7 slot and that puts Venus on the bubble.

Venus, as I said yesterday, will be in trouble if Jennifer beats Serena tomorrow because she will move into the number eight spot, which Venus now occupies. If Serena beats Jennifer tommorow, which is expected, then Venus is safe untilt the indoor season gets underway because Vera could move into the number eight spot with good results.

Maria is a shoo in to win Tokyo and Seoul, and should do well in Shanghai. That would give her enough points to secure a spot I think. Especially if she can play one more indoor tournament.

Yes but as its the race and not the rankings so does everyone else. Many play more and the europeans play Europe while many Americans avoid most of the late season.

If I am not mistaken, those are Tier III tournaments. Venus is playinf two Tier I tournaments and hopefully one or two Tier II's. Those are worth more points and therefore keeps Venus ahead.

If Justine wins today she should jump into 3rd while it looks like Lindsay and Amelie will fight for that no 1 position.

Right now, Venus is in the top eight, but for how long? It may come down to the result from the Jennifer/Serena match. That is becuase if Jennifer beats Serena, she gets bonus points and may knock Venus out of the top eight. However, if Jennifer loses, then the top eight stays the way it is until the start of the indoor season.

If Petrova keeps this up (even though I think JHH will win in 3) she might be a big mover into the top 15.

Even if Petrova wins the whole thing, which is highly unlikely, that is the only way she can be a threat, but she is about 700 ponts behind Venus and I don't see her making that up between now and Monday.

As far as the numbers go, this is it for the 2004 champions race. The person currently at number 12, Paola Suarez, is 555 points behind Vera and is unlikely to make up those points just to get to number 11. At this point, only Venus, Maria and Vera are fighting to get into the top eight and their fall depends on who has the best chance to make the cut. I don't know how Vera plays indoor or how many tournament she plans on playing from next week until late October, but I do know that Venus does not like to play during the fall or inoors, but I hope she changes her attitude about that since she is so close to making the cut and getting back into the top ten. At the present time, she is only playing Moscow and Zurich, both Tier I events and I hope she adds two more events, maybe a Tier II in Europe and Philadelphia. Maria, due to age, can only play a certain amount of tournaments and the ones I know she is playing are Tier III"s and even if she wins them, if Venus and/or Vera do well at higher Tier events, she will not be able to attempt to make the cut. All three women have their relatively poor showings at the USO to blame for the situations they are in and may see themselves on the outside looking in come early November.

ETA: Can anyone tell me when the points are calculated in the EoY tournament does it go on the position you finished in the race or the actual WTA Rankings?

Aka if Mauresmo was no 1 in the WTA Rankings would she be top seed or say if Davenport finished at the top (or someone other than Mauresmo) would they be top seed?

I haven't had a chance to work out the points but it's pretty much safe to say she'd move up to no 3 behind Davenport / Mauresmo - actually I think whoever wins will most likely move up to no 3.

Okay looking at that I realised if Lindsay had made the final she would have been accepted into the Season Champs now - because she would have been 2000 points in front of no 8 position - instead she's only 1811.

Look for Myskina and Kuznetsova to fight for that no 3 position this week since they're both playing the Wismilak International this week and Sharapova and S. Williams to try to make a climb up next week @ the China Open.
