Kim is currently #8 in the race with Schiavone right on her tail and Petkovic not too far behind.

Yes, she will. If she doesn't get injured again.

Yes she will. She wont be outperformed by people like Schiavone on hard courts even if she plays only 3 events and Schiavone plays 8. She might skip it though as I doubt it even interests her that much.

Depends if her injury heals quickly. If it does, I see her doing extremely well over the summer and making the cut. I mean, I'm not an expert on the rankings, but last year, she did pretty much f-all for the first six months of the year aside from winning Miami... then the summer hardcourt season came along, she started doing well and she comfortably made the YEC. This year, she's had a similar first six months, except winning the Australian Open obviously gives her a lot more points than Miami...

I think the top 8 will stay as it is...

As far as I know slam champions are qualified irrespecive of their standings. So yes she is already in.

I think only in the ATP. I'm pretty sure their policy is that if you win a slam and you're ranked in the top 20 you get in. At least that's how it was a few years back. The women are different. Serena won the Australian in 05 and finished 11th in the rankings, failing to qualify. I think if Kim does well over the summer she will (which depends on her drive and her injury). We all know she won't play in the fall.

Yes. Also Kim herself didn't qualify in 2009 despite winning the US Open.

I hope for us both she doesn't.
So she can cook at home for her family and I can watch people that are motivated to play like JJ .

I'm pretty sure that even if she doesn't qualify they can still put her in.
The top 7 are guaranteed a spot while the 8th spot can be given by the WTA to a player who has won a slam that year but hasn't qualified.

If she puts in a good showing at USO or plays a fairly normal schedule she'll probably qualify.

Lmao, yes!
I think she will be #2 or 3 in the WTA race and in the rankings too.
I thinks he will win San Diego, Cincinnati and the US Open and MAYBE the YEC, but I'm not sure..

She might be fed up AGAIN with playing tennis........ so she might retire AGAIN after the US Open... she won´t play beyond this year... have anyone actually missed her in Wimbledon?????

This is funny in a way since the year started with predictions of Kim dominance, talk of a Kim slam, and now she is almost the forgotten top player.

I can't even hate on her anymore, she's such a non-factor since AO. Her horrible losses are just embarassing now.:o

She won't if she keeps playing like this.

I don't think she cares :shrug: she won it easily last year without playing any matches beforehand, so she could probably do the same this year if she qualifies

What can you say? She's rather forgettable. :lol::p

IMO because of her part-time schedule she hasn't really added anything to the tour. If anything she's been bad for the WTA. Just shows the era we're in, when you can barely play (and play like crap when you do, winning with 13 winners and 41 UEs) and still scoop 3 slams.
