Thanks to Patty Schnyder losing to Davenport in the R16 the top 8 should still remain the same.
Its strange to think that Hingis, Petrova and Dementieva have had by far the best year of their careers yet they only are in 6th, 7th and 8th place in the championships.

Kim hasn't qualified yet.

Belgian papers say Schnyder needs a miracle to overtake her, but that's not quite true :rolleyes:

Jankovic is highly unlikely to qualify. Even if she wins Zurich and Linz, she'd only be at 1664 points, which is at this time (with Moscow results up until this very moment) 49 points more than Schnyder. Patty will definitely take more than that.

BTW, mathmatically Jankovic and players below her cannot qualify anymore because there are still 615 points maximum avaiable for a player (300 Zurich + 195 Linz + 120 Hasselt/Quebec), and Jelena needs 682 to overtake Hings, current number 8. Vaidisova still has a chance because she is commited to all those tournaments listed and, if she wins them all, she has a small posibilty to qualify (she would need Kim and Martina to do pretty bad in the remaining tournmanets and Patty to not do very well)

With yesterday's results, Martina Hingis, Elena Dementieva and Nadia Petrova all qualified for the YEC. The last spot will belong to Patty or Kim. There's a lot of chances for Patty, because of Kim's injury.

Since there are so many injured players, what are the rules for alternates?

For example, how many alternates go to Madrid?

If a player withdraws prior to Madrid, do both players get the minimum $100k?

Illumination
Oct 19th, 2006, 11:58 PM
I think there will be 2 alternates

Melusine
Oct 20th, 2006, 06:47 AM
There are two alternates indeed. They have to be present in Madrid from Monday till the end of the Round Robins; and they have to do some sponsor stuff.

They get paid for being there, it's like 20k or so.

If someone withdraws before the start of the tournament, the first alternate takes the spot and the third in line is also called to Madrid.

Thanks for the answers.

But why would anyone withdraw before the tournament, if they get a $100k just for showing up?

Any chance for Vaidisova to qualify ?

We'll see if I've done the calculations correctly. :)

Hingis is realistically in, 'cause Schnyder isn't going to win two tournaments in these next two weeks. The odds are very high that Kimmy will 'officially' be in, but due to her anticipated non-participation... Schnyder's looking like she'll make it into the YEC.

The BIG 'what if' could happen if there's a second w/d (J H-H being the most likely possibility). To answer an earlier question, this is the only way that Nicole could possibly make it in. The anticipated Nicole - Jelena matchup in the QF's this week could, obviously, be a very big match where this is concerned. Dinara may be making a REALLY big mistake by not playing in the tournament this week.

Edited to correct the calc. for Elena - she will get 1 point, not 42 as I'd initially given her.

Thanks for your update!
Really appreciated!
It's a shame to know that Nicole is almost impossible to get to the YEC!

from where this info on Kim's "anticipated non-participation" (supposing she makes it) :confused:

That's just what people are guessing here in this thread, Melusine, because of her wrist injury, and the fact that she hasn't played in anything in the last 7 weeks or so. People are just figuring that her injury still won't be better by the time the YEC rolls around. All those thoughts may not be correct though, of course!! :)

EVD's comment below is correct: Patty can get 1931 points. She MUST defeat Sharapova tomorrow to stay alive... as far as the possibility of making the tournament without having to rely upon a potential withdrawal, that is.

If Nicole wins tomorrow, she and Dinara will be TIED at 1442 points. If J H-H and Kim do withdraw, as some are suspecting will occur... the fight for that second replacement spot could be VERY down-to-the-wire!

Patty has made it to the semis. She's now at 1704.

I calculate her maximum at 1931.

Hingis and Clijsters officially qualify after Schnyder's loss in Linz semi.
Patty is definitely the 1st alternate.
Safina and Vaidisova still battle for the 2nd alternate spot. If Nicole beat Petrova in the 2nd semi (just got underway) she will get it. Otherwise she'll need to get to the SF at Hasselt.
