are all in contention for the Australian Open, and are safe from Zonals. Katarina is the closest having already secured 21 wins, however she is done playing. Agnieszka only has 20 wins and is done playing, if more than 2 or more of the rest of those players wins a match, she's out.
there are 2 spots left for Sydney, 5 of these players will be in zonals. Tamarine and Bethanie have the best chance to play Sydney as of now. They both have 18 wins already and get to play the last Round. If they win they will for sure play Sydney. Ai and Maria also have 18 wins, but they do not get to play the final round. Behind them are the other 3. They all have 17, they need to win and then also enter with a better Set W/L record than Ai, Maria and possibly Tamrine and Bethanie. It's a tough shot but they can do it.
With this win Sharapova keeps herself in contention for Sydney. Krajicek has played awful in the final rounds and now is likely to play Sydney.
