Three set for WTA Championships

NEW YORK (AP) - Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin-Hardenne and Serena Williams are the first three qualifiers for the season-ending WTA Tour Championships set for Nov. 5-10 in Los Angeles.

Clisters, ranked No. 1, won the WTA Tour Championship last year. She has won six titles and reached at least the semifinals at 14 of 15 events this season to overtake Williams for the top spot in the rankings. She is seeking her first Grand Slam title at the U.S. Open.

Henin-Hardenne is ranked No. 3 and won six titles, including the French Open, this season. She reached at least the quarterfinals in all 13 of her tournaments leading to the U.S. Open.

Williams, ranked No. 2, won the Australian and Wimbledon championships and was a semifinalist at the French Open. She is currently recuperating from knee surgery that prevented her from defending her U.S. Open championship.

Five more players will be added to fill the field.

Davenport (but will she be fit?)
Mauresmo

If Davenport isn't fit either Vera or Ai ;)

I agree with your list for the exception of Lindsay. She already announced that she will not compete in the Y/E Championships because she will still be recovering from her foot sugerry. So whoever is 9th in the race will make it in.
