Sam is very good on US and Asian hard courts and based on how both Sam and Petra played last year during this part of the season it is almost impossible to imagine that Sam who is less than 400 points behind Petra won't overtake her.
The battle for the last spot will be between Na and Petra, almost without doubt. I'd say Petra has to be the favourite with her lead of 600+ points.
And yes one can say there isn't that big a gap in the race between Sammy and Na but Sammy has done substantially better during this part of the year than Na for the last few years.
