Bob Larson said that if Jelena lost early in Sarasota and Anastasia won the whole event....Nastya would be No.10. And with Dokic and Schnyder already out, Nastya has a good shot at winning the title.


And god knows its about time Jelena fell out of the top 10 :rolleyes:

I'm really bad at rankings ect ;) so can anyone confirm if this is possible this week?

She specifically needs 131 points. A win is worth 95 points, so she'll need 36 in bonus points. Not guaranteed, but if she wins every match without walking over, she should get it.

Dokic has 2414-157 (off) + 57 (17th best)=2314
and she has lost already,
Myskina has 2216-33 (17th best)=2185
so she needs 129 pts here
2314-2185=129
129-67=62 QP needed
that's about 15 pts per round, which stands for
4 TOP 35 players for her to beat,
but that's just an average,
beating
Loit=8
Elena L=15
Elena D=23
Dechy=23
that's 69 pts already....enough to take over Dokic,
but if any of Elena L/D or Dechy loses before Myskina,
then she ha to win this event to become TOP 10

but dont be too happy, coz she has Amelie Island
and Charleston points to defend, clay season is around the corner,
and her performance in the clay Slam, is not that impressive, if i may say
she lost to Cara Black, Asagoe, Sucha in French Open,
so if she can defend those points on clay,
she is gonna stay on TOP for quite some time to come

let's try one more place just for fun:
#9 is only less than 100 pts apart from #10,
so let's try that, 2479-2185=294
294-95=199
that's about 40 QP per round,
which means she has to beat TOP 10 players
5 times in a row to become #9......well,
there is only one TOP 10, so nope.....undoable

No, it's 131. You made a simple error early:

2216-33 = 2183, not 2185.
2314-2183 = 131

But you're right...I underestimated the amount of quality points she could get here. So she could do it with just a finalist appearance.

she's gonna have to win this tournament, which i doubt, and she'll have to pick up some major bonus points, and now that many seeds are out, i'm afraid that she won't be able to. i think she'll come really close and if she does bump Dokic out of the top 10, Dokic'll be breathing down her neck, and seeing as though she has 0 to defend from Charleston, she can snatch it right back.

Actually, this could be just the kick-in-the-butt Jeca needed. (And if Dani dosen't stop living off IW '02, modeling, and, er, dominating Da Boi's uber-babe last year, she may be next in line to leave the Top 10).

Glenn what's ur point for bumping this thread to show that me and some other dude said that Myskina won't win this tournament. do u want me to dig up all the WRONG predictions you have made, because if you like i can do it, but it'll take me 1 million years because u make tons of mistakes at predicting. sheesh let it go already
