Now that the WTA finals are finally confirmed, who do you think will qualify? (you can pick 4)

Barty, Sabalenka, Krejcikova, Pliskova are safe.

Current standings for the rest:

05 Iga Swiatek................2921
06 Maria Sakkari..............2842
07 Naomi Osaka................2771
08 Garbiñe Muguruza...........2671
09 Ons Jabeur.................2435
10 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova...2329
11 Elise Mertens..............2325
12 Cori Gauff.................2325
13 Elina Svitolina............2283
14 Emma Raducanu..............2282
15 Jessica Pegula.............2232
16 Angelique Kerber...........2171
17 Daria Kasatkina............2061
18 Paula Badosa...............2057
19 Belinda Bencic.............1939
20 Leylah Fernandez...........1911


As you can see, the race is extremely close and the winners of Indian Wells, Ostrava and Chicago will probably get a nice boost (and some players' participation is also still in doubt).


Current schedule for the players before they all start taking WCs somewhere

Swiatek and Sakkari should probably make it with the lead they're having. I still have faith in Muguruza too but it's difficult to predict with only few chances and one WTA 1000 left. Mertens is playing everywhere and that can give her some nice points if the others flop in the few tournaments they entered, but her form is suspect.

And Moscow? Is there a reason everyone keeps ignoring the last 500 of the year 😂

Isn't Osaka already out according she's having a break ?
Raducanu will have necessarily a WC at Indian Wells, she can still makes the finals with a deep run there.

I think Barty and Osaka won't play, so I'm going for

Sabalenka, Pliskova, Krejcikova, Swiatek, Sakkari, Muguruza, Svitolina, Raducanu* (if she plays IW, if not then Jabeur)

She is not safe , so she can easily be down to 9 or lower after Indian Wells

It's hard not to see Swiatek and Sakkari being safe at the moment, and feel Muguruza is probably OK.

With IW and Indoor tournaments left, I feel Gauff could stand a good shot. She's well in the mix and this stretch should on paper be a good opportunity for her

WTA to pay 10 million to someone like Mertens to give up her spot to sweet Emma 😍

I imagine Osaka + someone else won't participate.

The top 4 obviously.....Barty, Sabalenka, Krejcikova and Pliskova are safe. Swiatek, Sakkari and Muguruza will make it. Osaka won't because she won't play any more this year. The remaining spot will be claimed by Andreescu......with title at Indian Wells and title or final/semifinal in Chicago, Moscow and one of the 250's. She obviously needs help from the other girls not going deep,,,,but possible.
