I would love to see Hsieh pip her to the post and be #1 again, but Barbora has really earned it this year. She also won the Olympic Gold which obviously isn't counted towards the tally.
If that happens, I am quite certain there will be angry people seeing Hsieh ending #1 due to 2020 results being counted for everyone.

Siniakova is listed as playing doubles with Ostapenko in Moscow,( they are currently #2 seeds) so if this does eventuate she still has a chance to be #1 at season's end if things go well.

Yeah I had comments on her playing Moscow for the chance to pass Krejcikova but I doubt she will bother. I'll put Siniakova back on the contention list. She needs a Final at Moscow to overtake Krejcikova.

Aoyama/Shibahara is virtually out of contention unless they enter Moscow and Hsieh/Krejcikova skips Guadalajara. The former is a decision they can take, the latter is not in their hands.

Siniakova through to the Semi-finals in Moscow, so she keeps her hopes alive to be #1.
She & Penko play #3 seeds Bouzkova/Hradecka for a chance to get a final.
I wonder whether she is aware of this or not, could be worth a few sponsorship dollars at year end though.

Siniakova through to the Final in Moscow.
That would give her a chance to finish the year at #1 now.?
Yes. It will be between Hsieh and Siniakova if no one enters Courmayeur and Cluj-Napoca.

Scenario at Guadalajara

Finals RRNowRRP3RRW1RRW2RRW311th
+375+125+250+375
Hsieh Su-Wei71307405753076557780100
Katerina Siniakova70557240736574907615190

Finals SERRW1FRRW1WRRW2FRRW2WRRW3FRRW3W
+330+750+330+750+330+750
Hsieh Su-Wei786082807985840581108530
Katerina Siniakova769581157820824079458365

Hsieh leads Siniakova by less than 75 points and her 11th best result is 90 points less than Siniakova's. Since the results at the WTA Finals Doubles do not count as an extra event like Singles, this event will replace the 11th best results for the players. Overall Hsieh leads Siniakova by 165 points should both Hsieh/Mertens and Krejcikova/Siniakova shows up at the Final and plays all three doubles matches in the Round Robin (+375).

Base on world rankings after Courmayeur and Cluj-Napoca (apparently Hsieh plays in doubles with an Italian player, so there may be changes if they reach SF), Hsieh/Mertens and Krejcikova/Siniakova would be seeded on different teams in Round Robin, so the earliest they can meet each other would be at the Semifinals. With 165 points difference between the two players, Hsieh/Mertens can afford to lose one match in the Round Robin and remain in lead.

Hsieh RRW2 = 7655 & Siniakova RRW3 = 7615

Whoever wins the Final will win the YE#1 regardless of other results. If neither team wins the event, it will dependent on the Round Robin and Semifinal results.

Apparently WTA changed the rules since starting in Shenzhen the seeding is based on the team ranking so Hsieh/Mertens landed on the same side with Krejcikova/Siniakova. Last time it was done by individual ranking where Barty/Dellacqua was Race #3 but seeded #4 in the 2017 Final.

Scenario at Guadalajara

Finals RRNowRRP3RRW1RRW2RRW311th

Hsieh Su-Wei786082807985840581108530
Katerina Siniakova769581157820824079458365

Both team can qualify for Semifinals if they beat the other two teams in Round Robin (and won't face each other).

It's quite shocking that the two best doubles teams are in the same group, particularly on what they achieved in 2021.
Agreed. Hopefully they can both go through but a lot will depend on what Krejcikova has left. Both Czechs just played BJK cup finals but Bara didn’t play doubles as well as singles. Her best hope for the doubles is bombing out of the singles early and focussing on Kat and the dubs! First match v Kontaveit will be a good barometer. Anett continuing her red hot form or back to her former ’talented but nervy’ self.

Scenarios at Guadalajara

Katerina Siniakova (RR3W)

Whoever goes further will claim #1. If both loses semifinal, Hsieh will retain #1 by 40 points difference.

Too bad I didn't have Siniakova as one of the options cause I didn't think she would play with someone else at the end of the season :oh:
