I definitely hope so, but will she??

As of right now, the injuries are just really hurting her right now.

Lets put it this way, if she is uninjured, then definitely YES.

i would say no if she was like 50th... but ppl, she's not too far out. i think we have already forgotten that she has made 2 finals this year...

Is she Top 8 material without injuries? It's close... because then you'd have to compare with Amelie and Lindsay without injuries too. I say yes, but barely.

Will Monica get into the Top 8 by the end of the year? No. She's missed too much, and I don't think she'll get the great results needed to get enough points in such a short period of time.

if she wants to, then she has to start adding her
tournament #, she only played 2 other events
from French Open to Championship,
other than Slam and Champ,
she has QF points to defend in 3 Slams to come,
if she is falling out TOP 12, and becomes
#13 seed in Slam, she wont have a chance to make it,
coz it'll be hard even for her to make QF,
and 4R points from Slam will not be enough
to put her into TOP 10 in the Race,
she has to play all 17/18 tournaments,
or she wont.......

Monica doenst need to play more than 14 events leading up to the Champs

but she needs to be HEALTHY
because if she is, no one named Williams or Davenport is out of reach

and she did beat Davenport last year

I hope so!!!
But more than anything, I wish her health and happiness. If she has those two things, then she will definitely finish in the top 8 at the end of the season!!!

GO MONICA!!! :angel:

She most definitely can be if she plays a consistent schedule. I would think that Monica would play a normal schedule(unlike last yr.) to ensure this and get her ranking up.

A healthy Seles probably makes it in, yes.

Heaven forfend injury, Williams, Williams, Clijsters, Henin-Hardenne, Davenport, Capraiti, Mauresmo are all going.

Rubin will be the hardest to catch. She the veteran. She'll know how to pace herself through the year, how to maximize her opportunities. She won't have the emotional ups and downs a younger player might.

And she knows there's only so much Monica can play w/o injuring herself.

Mykina, Hantuchova and Dokic are all young, and they all play a ton, and that makes up for a lot of bad losses. But Monica would be a tough cover for any of them.

Mauresmo needs to follow up on last year to be a lock for top 10

yes, she does need 17 tournament if she keeps
playing this way throught the year.........
her best be is on clay before Wimbies,
if she cant get herself back into TOP 10 by Wimbledon,
she'll have no chance..........believe me, no chance,

dont forget Jelena and Nastya, the 2 players above her,
are almost "schedule specialist"..........they dont mind
playing 4 weeks in a row or something like that,
the way they get their points can keep Monica
out of TOP 10 for some time to come,
so either Monica starts adding weight to her schedule,
or she is done.......

I am not sure. She has chances anyway.
