When Zvonareva replaces Bartoli in the top 10, there will be two Serbians, six Russians and two Americans; only three nationalities. Has that ever happened before? :confused:

It can happen this week if:

Marion loses in R2 or QF and Vera makes SF
Vera beats Marion in SF

I know, I made the thread when Marion was still #10. Vera needs to make SF to pass Daniela.

Wow! I think the top 10 by the end of the year will have at least 1-2 more nationalities in it though.

It's happened before, but with Petrova instead of Chakvetadze

Bepa has a great shot at the SF. She should be top 10 next Monday, wow. :hearts:

Actually if I'm not mistaken, Vera needs a final at Eastbourne to make top 10.
With a SF she'll be tied with Daniela (2007 points), and Daniela played more tournaments so she will be #10.

Vera has 1912 points, and SF at Eastbourne gives 125 points, enough to pass Daniela. :)

Vera was out this time last year until the USO.
She has nothing to defend until NYC
It's possible there'll be 6 Russians in Doha for the YEC

I count 5. Which of the Russians outside the YEC Race top 10 looks at all capable of stringing together a top 8 season?

But even if that is true, the one who plays FEWER tournaments gets higher ranking. Right?

They go on the record for Tier I + Grand Slam over the past year when they're tied. It happened with Maid Marion and Dani last year. Vera has more points in those this calendar year than Dani does over the last 12 months.
