After the withdrawal of Andrea Petković (GER) from Australian Open 2012 due to a stress fracture in her lower back, 4,000 ranking points will be the bar for # 10 spot as of 1/31/12. If this bar will rise depends on contestants performance: [10]Francesca Schiavone (ITA) needs to advance to QF to bypass Andrea, [12]Serena Williams (USA) requirements to move into Top 10 is a SF, while [13]Jelena Janković (SRB), [14]Sabine Lisicki (GER) & [15]Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) have to win six matches (= RU) to achieve this level. Additional eight players [including former GS singles champs Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) & Ana Ivanović (SRB)] might be Top 10 if they managed to get crowned.

Even with a comfortable lead and a single digit seed-spot, there is a slim change that a competitor might go beyond Sydney Finalist [5]Na Li (eg [12]Serena Williams will play for the Championship and Na Li will drop out in QF or earlier).

Ranking Watch after Australian Open 2012 (as of 1/30/12):

Fran has a chance to reach QF so does Rena to reach SF (depends how serious her injury is).

As I predict a win from [8]Agnieszka Radwańska (POL) against [10]Francesca Schiavone (ITA) in R4 and I don't expect that [12]Serena Williams (USA) will sideline [25]Kaia Kanepi (EST), I anticipate that Andrea Petković (GER) will hold # 10 spot after Australian Open 2012.

Serena has the best chance, she got an ok draw to get to the SF.

Aga was killing Fran left and right last year, now meeting in 4R... so yeah, this is a Serena-only race.

I hope Li Na will mentally recover after that loss...

this seems to be the biggest choke in her career...
