She has passed passed Amelie by winning Stanford.

Davenport takes narrow lead in Porsche Race
STANFORD, CA - Victory at the Bank of the
West Classic in Stanford has put Lindsay
Davenport in the lead of the Porsche Race to
the Championships, but only just!
The American, who defeated fellow former
No.1 Venus Williams in a thrilling thirdset
tie-break on Sunday, moved ahead of last week’s Race
leader Amélie Mauresmo by a mere four points (2448 to 2444).
Davenport has qualified for the season-ending extravaganza
every year since 1994, winning the title in 1999 and finishing
runner-up in 1994, 1998 and 2002.
Venus, who was appearing in her fifth Stanford final, moved
up from 8th to 6th in this week’s standings as she attempts to
qualify for the seventh consecutive year.
Only the Top 8 singles players and Top 4 doubles teams
qualify for the WTA Tour Championships, scheduled for November
8-15 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

She has passed now Justine and becomes #2 in the race and she will pass Amelie is she wins Stanford.
Even if she can't do it this week, she will next week since Amelie is not playing.
Venus is now #6, if she wins, she passes Maria Sharapova to become top 5.
Venus will pass Maria if she goes deep in the tournament; she doesn't have to win LA.

I think CJK meant that if Venus won the final today, she would be ranked ahead of Maria.
OH, OK.
