Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams, Jenny Capriati are having catfights :cat: :boxing: to grab 8th spot in the YEC..

i think Jenny has given up the fight for a place in YEC
she's most probably partying somewhere n will start preparing for 2005 in DEC :)

Hopefully Maria makes it! so she can shut a few of her critics up

i think the top 8 now will be the top 8 come november, venus' sparse schedule and jennifer's lack of indoor results, as well as maria's decision to play small tournaments and guarantee herself points should lock up spot 8, maria should play some harder events though soon to prep herself for the competition level at the YEC, also, we have to wonder if any of the top 8 are questionable fitness-wise at this point...you never know

venus' sparse schedule
maria's decision to play small tournaments
Venus plays very big tournaments and if she does well, she should equal the amount of points that Maria gets for being cheap and not earning her points :tape:

Hasn't it been ages since the top 8 qualifiers have even shown up? It's probably a better than 50% bet that at least one of the top 8 won't even be in LA.

If Jennifer keeps being absent from her commitments, she wont make it. This title could mean a clinch for Maria.

Venus added Philly so I think she has a better chance than Maria, if she does well at her tournaments.

If Jen is not going to make it (which seems likely, and I don't mind, she can rest up for Oz, although if Justine withdraws she could?) I want Venus there. I want Venus to play against Top 8 players, 3 matches to give her an assessment of where she needs to go during the off season.
Go Jen and Venus :)

You lot are ignoring someone who still has a shot at it!
