A lot better in the game she served for the match. W 2&2,plays Cepede next who I haven't seen this tournament but she doesn't really have any weapons so it should be another easy win

I get what you saying, but Sloane is from a much bigger market bringing in more media, viewers and money at the moment. No brainer choice if you are WTA. Also they have a simple justification of Sloane not earning enough points to qualfy since she missed half the season.
Just really hope this scenario won't happen, i would rather have both playing and see Konta, Woz or Halep sitting at the sidelines.

WTa really should have changed rules years ago so that slam champs automatically qualify for YEC.

Although technically there is another trouble. WTA rules allow 1 WC for the YEC finals, means only top7 is direct entry. Of course WTA never used the WC, so every time just the 8th player gets direct entry. But this year is wacky, and 2 slam champion on the brink of missing Finals WTA might make a choice. So imagine if Penko stays 8th in race and Sloane also doesn't qualifies (big chance she won't do much this year)... oh boy.
What would be important is getting into top7. The only one in close distance is Konta, Woz already in 700pts away from Penko seems too far. Of course this is only a problem if everybody in top7 plays.

By what I know it is really probable that Venus won't go anyway. But can't say for sure. However I really don't believe and don't want to believe that the WTA would take out the spot from Aljona to give it to Sloane. Similar situations happened and the WTA never used this WC. Besides that, prioritizing an American player like that would totally send the wrong message.

There's a little chance the current top 8 of the Race will undergo changes. Stephens must win Wuhan or Beijing, but she's in media's limelights atm and skipped her 1st Asian event, thus, she's likely to prepare for Zhuhai. Kuznetsova's the highest possibilities on paper to give it a try. I'm prettey sure Sveta won't do that, she did it last season to Konta, but I don't see her doing it to Alena, nah, it was her in Paris who should have passed La Borz, Kuzzy tanked the 4R match for Alena's sake to give Baby Lena best matchup possible, she ain't doing no harm to her like she did to a slamless anybody. Last but not least, Kuzzy's too old to peak at will and she needs a lot of peaking this fall, not just to sneak another home event in Moscow. Who else? CoCo is a FedCup finalist, her reasoning is quite obvious, she's getting into form for Minsk, imo. Kiki is a mess these days and suffered from back injury lately, no matter how hard her haters try to expose her, she did well in the beginning of the season, but now she's done for the rest of it. So it must be only Cibulkova who's in contetion and whose WTF's points, if I'm not mistaken, won't drop before Singapore and nevertheless she's only 1703 points in the Race, plus 1250 she has for the WTF 2016, it's totalling to 2953 (Penko has +540) at the start of the 38th week. That's why Alena has to enter the same last events of the regular season Domi's scheduling, mkay. It doesn't look like Cibulkova's chances are real, anyways.

Never had a chance to bother about those pts. Good to know, Pome's a deadbeat. Thanx.

Skipping Moscow is a right choice if there's no need points-wise to go there, but I hate the idea not seeing her even if she tanks it as badly as she usually does at the Kremlin Cup
