It's easy. The calculation is made from 17 best results including 4 GS and Miami (compulsory tournaments).
And her 18th best result is currently Charleston with 60 pts and 19th Moscow with also 60 pts.
Sydney with 35 pts is her 20th result.
In case of defeat in Tokyo in 1st or 2nd round, she will loose the week after 125 pts from Luxembourg. But as she's got 60 pts from Charleston, she'll only lose 125-60 = 65 pts.
And as she's got 60 pts in Moscow last year not included in the calculation, she has nothing to lose. But it will be better to have a good result before end of year due to 150 pts from YEC.
If you don't understand the calculation, please tell me.
