What will it take? Or it's not possible?

Thanks.

Nope, she would have to make the finals I think to be able to break into the top 10, and I don't see her getting passed the QF.

It can happen. This is likely the best draw Martina is going to get at Wimbledon. I'm sure that isn't her focus though.

Of course it can happen, just don't see it likely....

I can't see Martina being able to get passed the likes of Clijsters, Henin on her side of the draw....Clijsters has proven that she isn't getting by her TWICE putting her out in the QF's...

Even though Martina has won Wimbledon and US Open before...she won those events before the BULK of power hitters came into the game...her best chances of winning SLAMS are in the Australia & France...IMO.

I'm not talking about whether she can win the whole. I'm talking about whether her ranking points will take her enough back into the top ten.

I know there are scenarios that can happen and wondering if anyone's worked it out.

For instance, Venus is the defending champion and she'll have a bulk of points coming off.

Actually depending on what some other players do, Marti may only have to make the quarters, which I see her doing. It doesn't matter though as she will be bak in the top 10 before the US Open no matter what happens at Wimby...Hoping for a great run at Wimby Hinigs!!

IMO Martina might match up much better with Kimmie on grass than on clay, but who knows if that match will ever happen...one match in one tournament at a time

I think it is possible. She's very good grass courter so it is possible but it depends how she does and the draw itself.

Hope this answers your questions,

Mary and Lindsay are out so,
Mary's points after Wim - 1636
Lindsay's pt's after Wim - 1588
that would put them at 9 and 10 in safe points (6. Kuznetsova 1933, 7. Dementieva 1866, 8. Schynder 1753)

Hingis' points shd she reach:
R16 - 1430
QF - 1508
SF - 1684
F - 1826
W - 2034

Nadia has 2134 points after deducting her QFs points from last year. Which means top 5 is out of the question (contrary to what Mahest Bhupati said :p)

If Hingis wins, the highest she can go is #6, but that's only if sveta loses before the 4th round, Elena before the QF and Patty before the F.

Should Hingis lose in the finals or SF, she'll definitely overtake Mary and Lindsay and reach at least #9. If she's a finalist, she'll be #8 if Patty loses before the 4th Rd. But if she loses in the finals to Nastya, Franny or Nicole she'll be #10. If she loses in the SF and Nastya, Franny, ALG or Nicole reach the finals she would be #10 (if 1 of the 4 is in the finals) or #11 (if 2 of the 4 are in the finals)

Hence, anything less than a SF would not result in a place in the top 10...(dun worry there's still the US Open ;) )

Ranking wise, it's a 5 way race between Hingis, Nastya, Franny, Nicole and ALG. Whoever advances futher gets to be the highest in this group. It's very likely that these 5 will contend for the #11 spot, unless they all make the SFs...

Since nearly everyone's prediciting that Hingis will lose the QF to JHH, she'll probably reach #11 after Wimbledon as amongst the 5 of them, Hingis has the easiest potential R16 opponent in Patty. Franny could potentially take that spot as she has Elena D in her quarter which is the 2nd weakest top 8 seed on grass. So it's likely to be #11 or #12 for Hingis after Wimbledon.

Fingers crossed that she exceeds expectations rather than fall short of it...

GO MARTINA!!!
