Re: Naomi's Asian Homecoming

What does Naomi need to do to qualify for WTA finals? The Asian swing is very important to her sponsors.

She seems very happy in her IG posts which is good to see. Not sure what that means for her tennis though....

If she wants to qualify, maybe she should add more variety to her game.

Here is the Site I'm using in regards to the "Race to Shenzhen"

https://www.openerarankings.com/WTAHome?Race=1

Naomi is currently 7th with Bencic, Svitolina and Bertens nipping at her heels. This assumes though that Serena who is currently in 5th is playing Beijing (where she has entered). If she doesn't 9th Place would be good for Naomi to qualify.

Her Home Tournament next week in the City of Osaka (where she was born) is very important.

Bertens is in a slump and seems to be taking a break from her coach so donít think she is a factor. No way Serena is dragging a 2-year old all over Asia for some tournaments she doesnít care about so donít think Serena is a factor either.

So looks good for Naomi then.
