Then it's Lindsay. :ras:

As long as there are no walkovers. :o

Interesting. So it depends on Sveta beating Mary, Amelie not being beaten by Francesca or a Russian and Lindsay or Venus or Sveta not beating Justine.........

Because I think Amélie will don't reach semis, what happened if Linsday beats Justine in semis and wins the tournaments but beats a russian in final?

Lindsay would be no.1. :)
In that case it doesn't matter who she plays in the final. (as long as it's not a walkover :scared: )

Well, if Justine wins the tournament by beating Amelie, maybe Amelie will be number one but everybody will know who the real number one is... Also, if Justine wins, she will definitely be really close to number one in the Race to the Chase ranking (or maybe even number one?)

Anyway, I hope Amelie doesn't reach the final, because if she does and loses and still becomes number one, that will be the weirdest way to number one in history... Of course, if that's the case, Amelie would definitely have a shot at being number one for the shortest period of time, because this place is currently held by Venus with 11 weeks, and Amelie sure wouldn't stay so long at number one...

Well, everyone said that now they give points for Serena's actual ranking now, but off course, everything can change.

Justine will lose #1 in 2 weeks anyway, when her Leipzig points are coming off, cos she doen't plan to play anything instead of it, so far. ;)

another number one topic. whoever gets to be the #1, it will be rightfully earned. no matter whether you like it or not.

If Amelie knows this, I think it's a safe bet to have Elena n the semifinals :tape:

As the system stands you are quite right. However I really hope that whomever becomes #1 has won the USO.

On second thoughts I'll leave off discussing this until we know what actually happens.

Also you can look at it this way - if both make the final - Amelie will have the no 1 position but Lindsay will still have the no 1 in the Race to the WTA Champs :)

So what guarantees Amelie the #1 ranking? The QF win over Lena D?

Getting to the SF guarantees her the #1 ranking regardless of how other players go.

Yes. That's why I said "If Amelie wins her next match, she will be no. 1".

It sucks so much how easily Amelie will get the number one spot, she has an easy draw.

If Lindsay wins against MoMo, she won't care about being number one, she'll have the title; that's what I'd like to happen.

Lindsay is not thinking about no. 1. Amelie maybe is thinking too much about no.1 now ;)

Off topic a bit...What will Venus ranking be next week being that she did not play the Open last year? And what will Serena's be through the fourth round...:D

oh yeah, momo has a weak draw. :rolleyes:
Irvin [who the hell is she?],Vento-Kabchi[she's old], Schiavone, Lena D, possible semi rena/cappy and final vs lindsay. what a cakewalk draw.

I just hope that the new number 1, whoever she may be is also the winner of the US Open.

It would be truly amazing for Lindsay to be #1 again and finish the year #1!!!!!

Go Lindsay...Take the number one spot and do not retire till Venus has a chance to get revenge...THREE TIMES...:devil:

i think grand slams should carry more ranking points and bonus points to players winning a second or more slams in the same year.
i just dont think anyone not good enough to be winning slams should be ranked #1 at any time. theoretically some player getting to the final of every tournie she plays but losing them all can still get the #1 ranking. suck a mockery on the system.

That's how some people see that. As far as I am concerned I don't care how a player reaches #1. This is just like another kind of achievement: Being #1.
The other achievement is obviously winning tournaments.
Anyway the rules are the same for all and you can change them all the time but there won't please everybody. That's just how it is. Get over it!

So Justine is going to be number 4? Waoh, what a drop.....well, that puts things in perspective I suppose.

I wish either Amelie gets the trophy and the number one or Lindsay wins it and get the number one. It just doesn't sound fair if Amelie loses to Lindsay but still becomes no 1.....no?

1 Amelie 4527
2 Anastasia 4109
3 Justine 4004
4 Lindsay 3911

Lindsay can get 146 for Quarter Win 250 for Semi and 264 for Final
She would end up with at least 4571
Thanks. Nadia winning over Sveta would lower that by 16 and what are you assuming for Serena's QP - her actual ranking gives 70 her special gives 132?

You are right about Nadia but it would still be enough for Lindsay.

I think Serena's QP would be 150 then - for being Co-No.2. :rolleyes:

Amelie, she deserves to be #1 for at least a week, if it can't be longer

Thats logical because she is seeded 3 because she is ranked co number 2. according to TBE they gave points for the actual rank at the FO and the special rank at Wimbledon so they could give her 70, 132 or 150:eek: Bizarre.:confused:

Jen is worth what? 86?

Must be tight for Lindsay as she now can't get Myskina. Justine or Momo's QP.
