After doing some calculation the 40 some point gap that existed between Hingis and Daniela DISSAPEARED because Daniela reached the Quarter by beating Schett.

Now I think they are close, VERY close IF Hingis does reach the semis, I think Daniela will have to also or at least the QF which she did.

Anyone else have the same calculations, or read an article?

If Hingis wins her QF against Dementieva (no guarantee whatsoever):

Hantuchova 2469.75
Hingis 2395.00

So Hantuchova will be Top 10 next week unless Hingis goes a round farther, if not more.

Given that Hantuchova will play Stevenson in the SF and Hingis will have to go through Dementieva and then probably Henin to get to the SF...I think Daniela has a good shot.

If Martina does beat Elena and Justine, though, she'll get more bonus points so it could be beneficial -- if she is in winning form, of course.

Martina did extremely well in the beginning of the year: 14-1? It would have been interesting to see how the year would have gone if she had stayed healthy.

But Daniela is not only close to the Top 10...she is reasonably close to even the Top 5.

That is with all points off so players in bold can still pick up points.

We will probably see Martina out of the Top Ten for good.

I'm a huge fan but after the start of next year she'll be lucky to be #14 and I just don't know if she'll even bother after that.

I think Martina understands the rankings enough to know that falling is normal when you missed months and when you come back and need time to work on your fitness and game. I think she will have opportunities next summer to pick up some points. :D

She does have opportunities but I just don't know if she's willing to put in the effort to improve. There are a ton of girls coming up who play faster than she does and she'll need to change things in order to maintain dominance over them. And THEN she can start worrying about picking up wins over the big guns in big tournaments.

Well, i think if martina can have some good performances at the end of this year....maybe like QF at Filderstadt and Zurich, SF at Linz, QF at Chase, stuff like that....then she will gain some pts atleast which will help her.

Also, martina always does well in Sydney, and with the extra 2 months to prepare she should be a lot fitter...so a SF of both Sydney and even Aus Open isn't out of the question i think - ofcourse depending on her draw.

After Tokyo, she really doesn't have many more points to defend. SF at Scottsdale, F Indian Wells, QF Miami and SF Hamburg....that's all

So she will realise that she is in a good position to gain points.

After that she may well be ranked in the 20's :eek:

meaning her fragile body will have to cope without byes
and i don't think she's capable of 3 let alone 5 good matches in a week.
