Here are the latest standing. Sorry for the crappy formatting. After the players name you have their OLD WTA ranking (which is of no importance LOL), their new pt total for this year alone and the number of tournaments. if you look at avg pts per tournament played then you have SERENA followed by JUSTINE, KIM and then VENUS, AMELIE and LINDSAY in that order. so the argument that Venus is behind the Belgians because she does not play enough is not true for this year (although it is probably a factor in her rustiness and she should play more!)


1 Justine Henin-Hardenne (4) 3259 9
2 Kim Clijsters (2) 3224 9
3 Serena Williams (1) 2806 6
4 Lindsay Davenport (6) 1683 9
5 Amelie Mauresmo (5) 1583 8
6 Venus Williams (3) 1405 5
7 Chanda Rubin (8) 1159 10
8 Jennifer Capriati (7) 1130 9
9 Vera Zvonareva (21) 1095 13
10 Ai Sugiyama (15) 1056 13
11 Meghann Shaughnessy (19) 1027 12
12 Daniela Hantuchova (9) 908 12
13 Conchita Martinez (22) 854 11
14 Anastasia Myskina (10) 840 12
15 Amanda Coetzer (17) 832 11
16 Nathalie Dechy (23) 830 14
17 Nadia Petrova (76) 820 10
18 Magui Serna (36) 812 14
19 Eleni Daniilidou (14) 810 13
20 Elena Dementieva (13) 801 13
21 Lisa Raymond (24) 674 9
22 Patty Schnyder (18) 668 14
23 Monica Seles (12) 599 7
24 Jelena Dokic (11) 592 14
25 Iroda Tulyaganova (34) 588 14

It's like this easy:

Let's say the current top 8 get to go to the champs:
Group A:

Justine vs Serena
Justine vs Amelie
Justine vs Chanda
Serena vs Amelie
Serena vs Chanda
Chanda vs Amelie

Group B:

Kim vs Venus
Kim vs Jennifer
Kim vs Lindsay
Venus vs Jennifer
Venus vs Lindsay
Jennifer vs Lindsay

Then it's the best out of group A vs the second best out of group B.
Let's say the 2 best out of group A are Serena and Justine, and in group B it's Kim and Lindsay.
So the semifinals will be:

Serena vs Lindsay
Justine vs Kim

then just winner vs winner in the final, so probably Serena vs Justine or something. :)
