Kostanić Tošić has 50 points for reaching the final round of qualifying.

The 12 listed players below the Top 100 are the qualifiers; they each
have 60 points already counted. Their rankings are approximate because
I haven't included the 2 points each of the losers in the first round of
qualifying receives. (Nobody's been credited with the 5 points for
losing in the first round of the main draw because none of those matches
has been played yet.)

Any chance you could include Dokic?

This is pretty amazing to me still. She got through the qualifying
pretty easily, too. Kaia Kanepi is a tough first round opponent, but
it's not totally impossible we'll see an upset here.

Nemanja

Yes. And Date has a lot more experience of big events than Kanepi has,
even if it's not recent. We'll have to hope someone shows at least some of
this match.

That would really be something, especially at 39 years old. Best of
luck to her. BTW, looking at the rankings, what's happened to Nicole
Vaidasova? She's dropping fast. And Sonia Mirza is now out of the top
100. I saw both of them play at the '07 US Open and thought they were
up-and-comers.

I think you're right. I remember Vaidasova made the quarters of
Wimbledon last year and then played like she didn't even want to be
there. Something's definitely wrong with the girl's head. Pity, since
she had big talent.

Vaidisova, I think, is a victim of her programming; the couple of times
I've met her she's seemed devoid of any joy in playing. Of course,
probably most teens would rather chatter with their friends than talk to
the press, but Vaidisova was harder to connect with than even a tired,
discontented Sharapova who just wanted to go home (when she was 17, at
Philadelphia). She had - or at least expressed - no ideas about what she
wanted to work on or what goals she might have. "I leave all that to my
dad". By contrast, Jankovic around the same time, a couple of years older,
was so excited that she was happy and eager to talk about life.

Anyway, Vaidisova won a bunch of very small tournaments, which got people
talking about her, but one thing Waltz and I both noticed was that she
seemed unable to win semifinals at any level above Tier III. And it seems
as though the panic she felt on those occasions has spread to her other
matches. The matches I saw of hers last year, some of them she looked
really lost, even though at Eastbourne she talked about how changes in her
team were going to benefit her. (Typically, she declined to say what they
were, why she'd made them, or tell us anything else about anything.)
