As of now:
Azarenka will have 700 coming out in Madrid and Maria 140:
Maria will be No. 1 if she reaches Madrid SF and Azarenka reaches QF. She will also claim No. 1 if she beats Azarenka in the final.
However, Maria's No. 1 ranking may be short lived because she has 900 points to defend the next week in Rome.
