Battle for WTA #1 in Birmingham || Osaka vs. Barty || chart with scenarios

.
UPDATE: Osaka lost in R2, so Barty will be #1 if she wins Birmingham!
-----

Will it be Birmingham where we see another no. 1, after all these missed opportunities ?

It will be intrstng if both makes the finals. Though all Naomi needs is Barty don't make it to finals and she will have another couple of weeks at top

Well, if Osaka wins one match, Barty needs the title.

Also, keep in mind that Barty is signed up in Eastbourne as well.

Osaka is signed up in Birmingham.
Barty is signed up in Birmingham AND Eastbourne. Both are Premier tournaments.

There's also the WC factor.

I don't think it would make much sense to make theoretical calculations for more than one tournament in advance, but if you tell me exactly what you wanna know, I'll be back in the evening [Europe] and look into it.

Ah okay, this is all good then. Although I'm pretty sure Naomi will NOT ask an Eastbourne WC just to keep her #1 before Wimbledon (she'll stay seeded #1 if she retains the top rank 2 weeks before Wimbledon starts, right?)

The most important thing is Osaka will have more weeks than "Meldonium-Pova" as No 1 soon.

To be seeded #1 at Wimbledon, she has to keep it after Birmingham . So she doesn’t need a eastbourne wc

Barty won Miami and Paris, and was good in Melbourne. She will probably be in the race for #1 all year
A new name in the hunt

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I'm quite interested to see Osaka on grass because it could be a natural fit, but I haven't seen enough of it on grass to know if it'll work as well as it has on hardcourts.

My instinct is that Barty is more likely to make the final than Osaka, but I also think it's unlikely Barty will play Eastbourne if she makes the final at Birmingham.

If Barty DOESN'T make the final, her Eastbourne decision will be based on her doubles result at Birmingham: if she pulls a Rome, she'll skip Eastbourne. If she doesn't win the doubles AND loses early in singles, she'll play Eastbourne.

Unlikely she'll play doubles Ash?

Ash will dump Vika as her doubles partner once and for all if she knows what's best for her.

Osaka can't catch a break. There is always someone breathing down her neck.
But will all keep falling short. Someone will stop Barty cold.
WTA is a jungle where neighbors eat neighbors. It's not like ATP where the 3 big fat cats eat every challenger for breakfast.

If Barty takes over in Birmingham, they will be tied at 21 weeks. But even so, theoretically she could get it back in Eastbourne, even without playing.

Yes, but she played in the MD only 3 times:

2012 via WC (16 years old), lost in R1 to [21] Vinci
2017, lost in R1 to [4] Svitolina
2018, lost in R3 to Kasatkina
