she would have looked a little too desparate for #1.... but I admit it wouldhave helped to get this spot.

I had been thinking the same thing. She should have requested a wild card. But I have heard that in order for a top player to play a lower level tourney tier IV or below, they have to make a special request to the WTA. <br />So who cares. She won 2 GS and 2 semi's, might as well end the year numero uno even if it seems a little desperate. It would have been fun to follow this week. She is only 10 points behind Lindsay afterall.

Yeah, Jen could have, but why should she?

I agree that it would look just a little like desperation.

but to take #1 by playing here just takes the piss.

What is more to the point is that she should not have withdrawn from Luxembourg the week before the Champuionships, because, as it turned out, a first match win would have secured her the end-of-year #1 slot... but then she wasn't to know that at the time!!!

With the race to #1 so close and with the uncertainty of her form in the last month or so, it was a bad idea for Jennifer to have withdrawn from Luxembourg. If anything she should've played more. Obviously she's had a spectacular year and no one can take that away from her, but it would've been nice to have the 'icing' on the cake!

Playing in Pattaya is a bad idea, unless if she's really really desperate cause she might risk been upsetted by someone and still been unable to gain the #1 ranking.
