Chances of Sharapova overtaking her after YEC are slim, but possible. Realistically Maria needs to win the title, and hope that Caroline does poorly.

Chances of Sharapova overtaking as #1 in the New Year are much better, because from the start of the year to Indian Wells, Maria has just 350 points to defend, whereas Caroline has 2120 to defend in the same period, including 900 for AO SF and 900 for P5 Dubai.

Assuming Maria played the same schedule from this year in 2012, she'll be playing Doha, Paris and Dubai in that time period, and she only has 4R to defend in Australia.

Sharapova can overtake her if she wins YEC and Caro does not do well in YEC

Exactly. Chronic issue for years. It didn't just appear.

Why do you think it's common in MLB pitchers and swimmers?

And as for this: I see they're just conveniently forgetting the week Kim was No. 1 eh?

F - Indian Wells, YEC
QF - Miami
3R - Dubai, Rome, Cincinnati
2R - Madrid
W/L: 30-8

4R-QF-4R-SF at the majors

#8 Radwanska, #7 Schiavone, #9 Radwanska (ret), #10 Dementieva, #4 Zvonareva, #6 Schiavone, #9 Dementieva, #2 Zvonareva
8-4 against top ten

2011:
W - Dubai, Indian Wells
SF - Rome
4R - Miami
3R - Madrid, Tokyo
2R - Toronto, Cincinnati
W/L: 19-6

SF-3R-4R-SF at the majors

#7 Schiavone, #8 Jankovic, #9 Azarenka (ret), #8 Jankovic, #9 Jankovic, #5 Schiavone, #8 Schiavone
7-2 against top ten

How sad no one could do better. Congratulations.

I was talking about onelegged dance she performs after every single serve.
