They could be retroactively awarded, see my post and @cricketbat ’s post before yours (#137 and 138)Ideally, it would be great if Emma could go on a bit of a run at Wimbledon just to rubber-stamp her position in the top 10, and show that even had ranking points been awarded this year, she would have still accumulated enough points to get in.
Of course it’s unlikely to happen before July 11th so the #10 is probably guaranteed, at least for a week.
Ideally she goes deep, points aren’t awarded immediately, but they are retroactively later in august.
That would guarantee Emma’s spot but also give her the Wimbledon points till July 2023
But after all the bad luck of this year, I will take the #10 even if Emma doesn’t have a deep run (which is unlikely THIS YEAR given her bad preparation…she will have plenty of chances to win Wimbledon in the next 12-13 years )
