Wow! :eek:

I really hope that Maggie gets it, because after Moscow her ranking is going to drop like a stone! :)

Also, what with all Maggie's injuries, i think she deserves it, you also have the feeling that for Ai, its going to happen, either next week or next year, but with Maggie i'm not so sure! :rolleyes:

Is there a chance that anyone lower could get it before them, like Hantuchova or Petrova if they have a good tournament?
In a word, yes. In fact Myskina could go straight back in if she wins Leipzig.

Yes Hantuchova has a chance if she beats shcnyder and Kim beats Dokic, and then Daniela beats Kim as she would get 100 Bonus points :)

so Myskina and Petrova possibly play each other at QF...and one of them will advance to SF... and they get enuf points to obtain No.10th spot, I guess, this week?

so, after this week, Petrova, Myskina, and Maleeva have a chance.

In Moscow, Maleeva and Petrova have to defend a few points...
Ai is playing Tokyo, and should win there...

so after in 2 weeks, Myskina and Ai have a chance to be in top 10??

Ai, you need to win more!! :bounce:
