Is it the top 16 players who play in the season ending championship?
This ranking is the 'Race to the championships' ranking on sanexwta.com[/url]
Is this the ranking used to determine the top 16 players, or do they use the normal ranking?

Cassius, you will find by the end of the year, with points dropping off from last year, that these two rankings will very much mirror eachother. Technically, it is the race that determines who will qualify, but they end up the same anyway :)

They end up almost the same. The spots are filled with the top 16 in Chase points, which at that time will be the same as 52 week ranking, minus points from last years Chase. So Serena and Lindsay will be the ones most affected by that. Monica and Venus, no difference at all.

Didn't Jenn lose in the second round to Testud so she has basically very little to defend and Martina was injured so she has zero to defend also. :D
