The Porsche Race draws to a close very soon. We all know the rules. Who will make the top 8?

My picks:

1. Davenport
2. Mauresmo
3. Henin-Hardenne
4. Myskina
5. S Williams
6. Dementieva
7. Kuznetsova
8. Sharapova

Anyone care to hazard a guess?

I hope Maria can squeak in there. She should be able to if she plays well in her remaining tournaments.

I don't know about 2-8. I think LD will finish up at number 1 because
she's got practically nothing to defend after the US OPEN. Msykina
has Leipzeg-Moscow, JHH has Zurich, Amelie has Philly-YEC finalist points

I thought you didn't have points to defend in the Porsche Race? I thought it was just an accumulative thing over a year.

Anyone in that top 11 still has a good chance of making the top 8. I hope Sharapova makes it as the championships need her in it!

I don't think it's possible. She's left it too late.

Well they could have the system like the ATP End of Year Champs - that if there's a next person in line it doesn't go on points it goes on GS winners - I remember Goran got in when he won Wimbledon ahead of someone else (Tommy Haas I think - and they were peeved off big time).

There's a good chance 1/2 of the top 8 are russian, them being Maria, Nastya, LenaD and Svetlana. If there are withdrawals, vera and nadia might sneak a spot, imagine 6 out of 8 all Russians!! Quite amazing (though unlikely) rite?

You don't defend points in the Race - you can be no 1 to 8 in the actual rankings but still not make it at the time of the Race :)

That being said if Lindsay stays injury free she has a genuine shot at finishing the year at no 1 in the actual rankings and the 2004 WTA Champs Rankings.

There's a good chance 1/2 of the top 8 are russian, them being Maria, Nastya, LenaD and Svetlana. If there are withdrawals, vera and nadia might sneak a spot, imagine 6 out of 8 all Russians!! Quite amazing (though unlikely) rite?Yeah especially since an American is leading, a French lady is second and a Belgian is fourth - to get 6 it would have to be very amazing to be able to knock off one of those 3 :)

Even if there are withdrawals I don't think the 3 above would be withdrawing unless they're injured - especially not MoMo and Lindsay that's for sure.
