Not much change this week when the new rankings are published on monday all eight players are still the highest but Mchale has slipped down some places.
Next week Riske, Mchale, Rus and Pivovarova in monterry qualies.
Namigata in MD for Malaysia
and Ferguson in 25k Hammond so if some go on some runs they might get in :)

Players not mentioned but could go on good runs Misaki Doi, Heather Watson, Jamie Hampton, Kurumi Nara and Lesia Tsurenko.

I'm gonna go with +10: Two already cracked it + 7 from the ones mentioned in the second post (I don't see Ferguson cracking it) + maybe a Watson or Tsurenko if they can get a few more wins.

Because Hlavackova was put in the last thread for last year! I think. Ok just checked the WTA says that she made debut on december 20th but only as no 100, which as we all know is not counted...

Update Rus out of Monterry so she will not make top 100 next week.

Good news for rus fans if she wins her 1st round at miami she makes it. She is very close now.

Actually, even if Rus doesn't win her 1st round match I'd say she still has a 90/10 shot at finishing Miami in the top 100. At this moment she is ranked provisionally at 98. So if she were to lose her next match she would need to be overtaken by three players in order to fail to finish Miami in the top 100. And as there are now very few players ranked below her who are within range of catching her with a single maindraw win I'd say Rus is already very close to securing her top 100 spot.

RG and Wimbledon could get it to 10 (or more) in a little more than half a season.
Indeed, Tatishvili is the 10th so far this year.
Falconi has the same number of points as #100 but is listed as #101 on tie-breaks, as Kerber has more combined points from majors and PM/P5 tournaments (thanks to her points from Beijing last year). But she won't have to wait for long to make her debut.

CHR for Bremond is 100 and some consider this place is NOT counted in the top 100:scratch:how can #100 not be included for top100? We dont have #0 even though considering who is our #1 it's a better way of calling her. :lol:
