...wasn't she 16? Where was the age limitations on playing too many events?

She also benefitted from Graf being out of the game for long stretches of time between the 96 U.S. Open and 97 Wimbledon... but let's not get into a Graf-Hingis conversation again! :lol:

no I am not start that discussion again either

martina proved the rest of the year that she deserved the spot, that's what counts

hope kim can do the same!
Unfortunately for Kim, she is in much the same position. She has a good chance to win the U.S. Open, yes, in the absence of Serena and possibly Venus, and gain all those points. But this is the nature of the top- it's tough to get there, and tough to stay there. This is nothing new- it happened for Graf, Seles, Navratilova, Evert, King, Court, Goolagong, King, Court, King, Court, King, Bueno, Smith, Smith, Smith, Bueno, Smith, Smith Smith, Bueno, Hard, Gibson, Fry, Hart, Connolly and Pauline Betz Addie (now there's a name I haven't seen on this board!)!
