12 DAVENPORT, LINDSAY (USA) / MORARIU, CORINA (USA)

---------------------------------------------------------------
Those teams in red are teams that have not been active since Wimbledon.
Molik however is coming back to US Open this week. She may be partnering with Svetalena again. Cara and Rennae just appeared on the race ranking 2 weeks ago and they are 500 points off from top 10 teams. They will have to reach at least semifinal to get into the running for YEC.

So currently the race is led by
1. Likhovtseva/Zvonareva
2. Medina Garrigues/Safina
3. Hantuchova/Sugiyama
4. Martinez/Ruano Pascual

With only Likhovtseva and Ruano Pascual that appeared in last year's YEC, former with Kuznetsova, latter with Suarez.

What ever happened to Petrova/Shaughnessy's domination?

Meghan was hurt most of the year. Too bad Paola didnt play this year, she would have avoided her nemesis in doubles, she is going to fall out of top 10 next month for the first time in more than 5 years.

Alicia Molik I hope she is healthy, she should have been ranked top 10 with her Australian Open win. She does deserve a seat in the year end championship.

Alicia and Sveta, though both out of singles, decide to hook up again and are actually high seed.
It's likely they are going to clinch a place in YEC after US Open.

It's a shame that Bepa got injured, since she and Lena were looking strong together :sad:

I hope that a strong indoor season will see them make the YEC :)
