With Kim Clijsters (US Open champ) and Lindsay Davenport(AO and Wimbledon finalist) already confirmed, who will get the next spot?

Maria Sharapova
Current WTA Singles Ranking: 1
Current Porche Race Ranking: 3
YTD Titles: 3 (Tokyo, Doha, Birmingham)
W/L: 50-9
Upcoming tournaments: Filderstadt, Moscow
Likely to get the next spot because she is the current world number one and has had a consistant year.

Justine Henin Hardenne
Current WTA Singles Ranking: 5
Current Porche Race Ranking: 4
YTD Titles: 4 (Charleston, Warsaw, Berlin, Roland Garros)
W/L: 34-4

Mary Pierce

Amelie Mauresmo
Current WTA Singles Ranking: 4
Current Porche Race Ranking: 6
YTD Titles: 2 (Antwerp, Rome)
W/L: 45-13
Upcoming tournaments: Filderstadt, Moscow

Venus Williams

Current Porche Race Ranking: 7
YTD Titles: 2 (Instanbul, Wimbledon)
W/L: 37-10
Upcoming tournaments: Filderstadt, Moscow
Likely to get the next spot because she is the current Wimbledon champion.

Patty Schynder
Current WTA Singles Ranking: 10
Current Porche Race Ranking: 8
YTD Titles: 2 (Gold Coast, Cincinnati)
W/L: 48-18
Upcoming tournaments: Luxembourg, Filderstadt
Likely to get the next spot because she has been consistent. Needs a good run at her next few tournaments to get herself a spot.

Nadia Petrova
Current WTA Singles Ranking: 9
Current Porche Race Ranking: 9
YTD Titles: 0
W/L: 40-16
Upcoming tournaments: Luxembourg, Filderstadt, Bangkok
Likely to get the next spot because she has been consistent. SF at FO, QF at Wimbledon and USO. Needs a good run at her next few tournaments to get herself a spot.

Elena Dementieva
Current WTA Singles Ranking: 8
Current Porche Race Ranking: 10
YTD Titles: 0
W/L: 22-6
Upcoming tournaments: Filderstadt, Moscow
Needs a good run at her next few tournaments to get herself a spot.

Serena Williams
Current WTA Singles Ranking: 11
Current Porche Race Ranking: 11
YTD Titles: 1 (Australian Open)
W/L: 21-7
Upcoming tournaments: Filderstadt
Might get special entry because she holds a slam. A good run at Fliderstadt and Phily might get her a spot.

It will be a tight run for a spot in the YEC. My predictions:
3. Maria
4. Justine
5. Amelie
6. Mary
7. Venus
8. Elena

Really the last spot is up for grabs between Elena, Patty, Nadia and Serena. I think Serena will not qualify.
