If Maria beats Daniela in the quarters, she will become no.1 on Monday no matter what.
If Daniela loses before the quarters then Maria needs to make the final.

Maria said her goal is to win the tournament, not just to be #1.

.... are you sure? I heard somewhere that since she beat Maria K, she'll make No.1 by a SF appearance. Anyone care to give me an exact calculation?

Lindsay has 4475 points.
Maria has 4452 points and 92 points as 17th tournament so if she replaces that one with her LA points then her new points will be 4360 + LA points.

Semifinal is worth 88 points. 4360 + 88 = 4448.
To overtake Lindsay with a SF appearance, Maria needs 28 quality points.

Kirilenko is worth 8 points.
Chakvetadze is worth 15 points and Benesova is worth 8 points.
Zheng and Haynes are worth 4 points, Haynes 2 and Daniela 23.

The maximum Maria can get without beating Daniela is 27 which is not enough since Lindsay has more quality points on her ranking and would still lead.

Don't you mean if Maria beats Daniela in the quarters? :confused: Did I miss something?

Sure but a theoretical possibility remains that Lindsay asks for the wild card at the last moment. Of course, she won't do that but still. As long as it is possible and as long as Maria have a chance to grab #1 this week, we will have fun estimating her chances.
