davenport number 1

Can Davenport make number 1 this year....she can't reach henin, but henin's doesn't really have that many points - they are simply her protected ranking

if davenport makes about 200 points more she will be number 2, but will that count as number 1?

If Lindsay stays healthy and plays a full year, she has a great chance at ending the year #1. I get goosebumps just thinking that!

I'm sure its a mistake on WTA that they gave Lindsay
an extra 71 pts on ranks this week

Last week she got 251 pts for winning Stanford and DID NOT get special rank pts for beating Venus.
but this week's ranks show that Linday got them (100 for Serena and 66 for Venus)
it should have been 35 for each of them.

as for the topic, the US open will decide that
Lindsay is on fire, if she can stay that way and WIN the US Open, then she'll no doubt be #1 at end of yr.

If Lindsay wins both San Diego and New Haven, she has an excellent chance of being no. 1 BEFORE the US Open . The only condition is that, in these two remaining tournaments, Davenport has to earn 56 points more than Mauresmo does in her three tournaments, and Myskina can't earn 255+ points more than Davenport. Not too hard for LD, considering she is by far the best hardcourt player of the three.

but will the statistics record davenport as being number 1 if she only gets more points than clijsters?....because won't henin's point total be zero when she starts again ( teh point total she has now will only be used for her protected ranking to establish which seed she is in the tournaments)..................

No, relax. Henin-Hardenne hasn't been out for a full year, remember! She still has 2 Grands Slams to her name in the past 52 weeks along with numerous other titles. However, if she cannot come back in time for the US Open or if she does not do much there in her title defense, she will definitely lose her #1 ranking immediately following the last Major in New York. It will be lost to either Davenport (the front-runner right now), Mauresmo, or Myskina. I don't think that one of those three could theoretically get to #1 before the USO, although #2 is certainly in sight for all of them. Clijsters will lose that #2 after this week, probably to Mauresmo.

That's so strange. Have other players been getting bonus/quality points for beating Serena and Venus equivalent to beating a #1 or #4 (their respective protected rankings), this year?
