Who do you think is going to do that?
First one to get into the top 100 is Kai-chen Chang (92) who made the SF in Taipei.
Second one to get in is Sandra Zahlavova (98) who won 25K in Opole.

Only 1 event left. Who else will they make it or will have to wait until next year (if indeed)?

This thread will be update untill the end of the season.

Kai-Chen has a chance in Taipei - she probably will crack TOP100.
Kucova can do it in Bratislava - 80% she does it.
The rest... maybe Kustova and Rus - if they are really in form.
If Diatchenko wants TOP100 she must do it now as afterwards her Dubai points are off.

Until the end of the year we have:

2 November:
100k+H Taipei
50k+H Ismaning
50k+H Nantes
25k Rock Hill

9 November:
50k Minsk
50k Phoenix

16 November:
50k Pune
50k Toronto
25k Esperance
25k Cairo
25k Opole

23 November:
75k+H Toyota
25k Puebla
25k Kalgoorlie

30 November:
25k Bendigo
25k Buenos Aires
25k Prerov

14 December:
75k Dubai

I agree, there's not much space now.

Like Arantxa Rus finished her season so she won't make top 100 in 2009 for sure.

Is it really Scheepers on the picture? she definitly doesn't look like that in real (chubby)

Zahlavova is really close and can break it if she adds few tournies to her (heavy) schedule :help:

Arantxa herself calls Dubai her ´first event of the year´

So I guess she doesn't count anymore. :p

Only girl who can do that is Kristina Kucova.
She is the only one who can reach the top 100 if she wins Dubai's title this week.
Kristina beat Rodina in 3 sets and she plays Lykina/Kondratieva in R2.
Arantxa Rus could have done it as well but she withdraw.

Out of all the above listed players, i think Kai-chen Chang has the best chance at becoming a top player :bounce:.
