This should be the best year-end tourney in history. The matchups will be great. Just think you could see multiple WS vs. WS matches, and multiple WS vs. Belgian matches, plus Capriati vs. WS matches, and Belgian vs. WS matches, and Cappy vs. Belgian matchups. WHEW that is a mouthful.

How is the WTA champs going to be scored?? Has the WTA divulged that info yet??

I would like to see the pools break down like this:

POOL A:

Clijsters
Capriati
V. Williams
S. Williams

POOL B:

Henin
Mauresmo
Rubin
Dementieva/Zvonareva/Sugiyama


Then the semifinal would be something like:

V. Williams vs. Henin and S. Williams vs. Mauresmo

Great matchups!!

Davenport wasn't included because of her plans to have surgery.

First they have to show up Knizzle. The majority of the women you have listed have health issues. I'll make a bold prediction now: coming in at #11 or even #12 in the race may be enough to qualify this year.

at this stage it seems like you can't really count on any player being there. any player could get injured at any time and there aren't any (i'm using any to much i know) complete guarantees that serena and venus will be fit - although hopefully they will be because it would be because it would be bad for them to miss the rest of the season, but also because if they are not there the crowds will be even worse than last year, when they were!

This is assuming everyone will be healthy with the exception of Davy who is having surgery.

do you mean ranking points? I think they haven't decided yet.

I wonder what's taking so long.

well, I think they probably can't find a good system, because the WTA Championships has a totally different format so it will be difficult to come up with something compatible with the rest, plus they will need to modify their software (I know because I will have to modify my program that calculates rankings as well :sad: ).

Quality points will be a problem, if Justine beats Serena twice ;) will she earn double quality points?

I think that will probably be the format, simply round points depending on what round they reach and quality points for every win.

I hope they will get quality points for each win they have, that way if V and S end up on the same side as Clijsters they can get #1 points from beating her. I want two WS matchups also. One in pool play and another in the final.
