doha is the top 8... the normal masters

bali is the top 7 players in the rankings according to only international events and excluding the players playing in doha... plus one wildcard.

The Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions is set to debut at the Bali International Convention Centre (adjoining the Westin Resort) from November
4-8 in 2009. Featuring top Sony Ericsson WTA Tour players and next generation champions competing in an innovative, 12-woman round robin singles format (four groups of three players, then single-elimination semifinals and final), it will offer both $600,000 in prize money and a chance to earn a $1-million bonus.

The 10 highest-ranked players who have captured at least one International tournament during the year and who are not participating in singles at the year-end Sony Ericsson Championships - Doha 2009 will qualify for the event, along with two wildcards. A player who wins three International tournaments and the season-ending Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions will take home the additional $1-million bonus on top of her regular prize money.

The Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions is set to take place in Bali for an initial period of 2009-2011.

:p

The Bali rule is strange

Take Lisicki for example who just won Charleston
If she doesn't win an international event, she won't take part in Bali YEC even if she won a "bigger" tournament.

Maybe that is what the wild cards are for. :scratch:
