DOUBLES (Top 12 positions)
Virginia Ruano Pascual / Paola Suárez (ESP/ARG) 4055 pts
Lisa Raymond / Rennae Stubbs (USA/AUS) 3446
Elena Dementieva / Janette Husarova (RUS/SVK) 2402
Cara Black / Elena Likhovtseva (ZIM/RUS) 1877
Daniela Hantuchova / Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario (SVK/ESP) 1778
Martina Hingis / Anna Kournikova (SUI/RUS) 1241
Nicole Arendt / Liezel Huber (USA/RSA) 1117
Tina Krizan / Katarina Srebotnik (SLO/SLO) 919
Rika Fujiwara / Ai Sugiyama (JPN/JPN) 913
Janet Lee / Wynne Prakusya (TPE/INA) 912
Serena Williams / Venus Williams (USA/USA) 780
Nathalie Dechy / Meilen Tu (FRA/USA)

So far the top five teams on this list have already qualified for LA...This leaves three teams. Certainly Venus and Serena will not be playing anymore dubs to pick up points...Marti wont be playing and neither will Anna K...I am pretty sure that both Venus and Serena will be there...Do you think that they might have a chance to play? and would they?

Because really, let's say the next three teams clinch a spot (minus the "spice girls")...Only Janet/Wynne stands in the way of them getting a spot...

unless the williams sisters play another doubles event, they will not be playing in LA

yeah i know..the only team above them that won't play is martina/anna....so they are still 2 places from getting in.

Another question...If a team qualifies and one player has to withdraw, I am sure the entire team is out, no?

yes, the entire team is out...the player cannot find a replacement partner....

IMO, at this stage the teams to qualify will be:

Ruano-Pascual/Suarez
Raymond/Stubbs
Dementieva/Husarova
Black/LIkhovtseva
Hantuchova/Sanchez-Vicario
Arendt/Huber
Krizan/Srebotnik
Lee/Prakusya
