Can Kim still earn enough bonuspoints to get to #1? I was wondering because Rubin and Petrova are out... :confused:

Yes, she can!!! She has to win the tournament, and then normally she would be no.1!! :bounce:

The only thing that can spoil it, is that she goes out sooner and that none of the top 25 - players win their matches. I don't think there's much chance of that (the last thing) happening.

Are you sure? I only believe it when I see the numbers :p

In the worst scenario (Loit, Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Pratt, Kutuzova) she will earn 195 + 10 + 8 + 15 + 8 + 1 = 237

In the best scenario (Loit, Sharapova, Dokic, Martinez, Davenport) she will earn 195 + 10 + 8 + 35 + 35 + 55 = 338

Worst scenario: 5911 - 170 + 237 = 5978

Best scenario: 5911 - 170 + 338 = 6079

Serena has 5995

Kim has to win the tournemant and can't face the lowest ranked players.

You're welcome, I hope I didn't make a mistake. I will try to update if anything changes regarding the worst and best scenario.

Pratt just upset Eleni. With Chanda pulling out, it really seems like the universe is making it tough for Kim to get the #1 ranking.

Kim facing Pratt in the semi's would be the worst scenario. I mean that's the lowest ranked player still left she could face.

What about Martinez?? Did she already lost?

No she hasn't lost yet, she faces Pratt tomorrow. Martinez is the highest ranked opponent that Kim can face in the semi-final, let's hope she wins.

Serena has 5995

Kim has to win the tournemant and can't face the lowest ranked players.
according to this calculattion,
95-78=18 points for quality point margins....
Kutuzova making the final is really a long shot...:)
TOP 25 left in the bottom half are seeds,
so seeds have to go out before Kim for Serena to stay #1,
replace Nicole with Conchita will also let her become #1,
or even just to beat Dokic will let her become #1...
all these assuming she does win the title of course.....:)

*update*

In the worst scenario (Loit, Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Pratt, Ruano Pascual) she will earn 195 + 10 + 8 + 15 + 8 + 8 = 244

In the best scenario (Loit, Sharapova, Silvia Farina, Martinez, Davenport) she will earn 195 + 10 + 8 + 23 + 35 + 55 = 326

Worst scenario: 5911 - 170 + 244 = 5985 (only 10 points below Serena's, if Kim wins the tournemant it's very unlikely she won't be number one, but their is still a possibility)

Best scenario: 5911 - 170 + 326 = 6067

Serena has 5995

If Kuznetsova lose, Kim can still end 2 points short, 3 points to overtake Serena.

Ummm...if Any One Withdraws, And Kim Was Suppose To Play Her, She Gets 0 Bonus Pts...so The Worst Case Scenario For Her Winning The Title Isn't Actually Right, Cause Sometimes People Might Pull Out Of Matches, But Good Calculations If None Withdraws..

That's a good point, but I won't change it until someone actually retires.

Let's say Clijsters reaches the final, than she will gain 8 to 15 points this week. Then she would have 5919 or 5926 points. Altough that would not be enough, she would come closer. And we have to be realistic, it's not certain she will win this tournemant.

I believe Kim will lose purposely. She's not ready for No. 1. Neither do she wants that responsibility.

well if she doesn't get it here, she'll most likely get it during the Canadian event, if not after the US Open, we are looking at a new #1

Well, Conchita and Meghan both lost today, thus preventing Kim from getting some bonus points.
