It's been made clear more than once that Lindsay is having sugery and is not playing again until 2004, so whoever is in 9th place will qualifly. Venus and Serena, if healthy, said they will play (note that Serena said she isn't coming back until late October).

Why the 9th place??????? I thought that the best 16 players qualify for LA.
After the disastorous Championships last year, the WTA decided to shape the women's Year-End Championships like the men's; invite the top eight players instead of the top 16 and have a round robin format instead of single eliminatioon.

Top two seeded players in Moscow....Mauresmo or Dementieva can get above Venus in the ranking after Moscow.

Ranking can change quick in the coming weeks with almost no top players around.


6. WILLIAMS, VENUS (2508)

Moscow 1 point

7. MAURESMO, AMELIE (2341)
Moscow 155 points
Filderstadt 134 points

8. DEMENTIEVA, ELENA (2299)
Moscow 53 points
Filderstadt 162 points
Zurich 46 points
Linz 48 points

9. RUBIN, CHANDA (2150 points)

Moscow -
Filderstadt 1 points
Zurich 1 points
Linz 158 points


10. MYSKINA, ANASTASIA (currently 1772 points and 1905 points if she win the final in Leipzig later today)

Moscow 1 point
Filderstadt 1 point
Zurich 61 points
Linz 33 points

None of the top 7 to 10 has won a tournament in the remaining tournaments (oct -Nov) before the Championships last year.

Maleeva Won 482 points in Moscow last year
Kim Won 378 points in Filderstadt last year
Patty Schnyder won 398 points in Zurich last year
Justine Won 311 points in Linz last year
Kim Won 200 points in Luxemburg last year

+ Debut of Advanta Championships this year (Tier II)

Lindsay entered Filderstadt and therefore the 9th spot theory is put into question.

Venus is in danger of not qualifying if Myskina and Dementiewa continue like this.

Lindsay is playing in Filderstedt and doing pretty good, so i think if she qualifys she will play. Dementieva and Myskina can take Venus' spot and be numbers 7+8. Although I'm not sure if Venus would play anyway. Serena has already qualified but I'm not sure if she willl play either. So basically Chanda needs to stay in the ten spot or whoever is there will likely qualify because Serena or Lindsay or anyone up there for that matter may pull out.
