The week that was - The Edge of Glory

  • Marion Bartoli is on the edge of glory qualifying for the WTA YEC for just the second time in her career, after winning Osaka. If she can win Moscow and have Radwanska lose before the QF...welcome to Istanbul!
  • Petra Kvitova won her 5th title of the year and showed why she is the biggest threat to take out the Year End Championships
  • Bartoli's Osaka triumph knocks Kim Clijsters out of the top 10 and for the first time since 1998 the top is with out one of the "big four" 
  • Petkorazzi has a new video out. I found a good laugh out of it!
  • Tweets of the week! 
  • Tennis Channel bought us one of the best episodes of tennisography, Victoria Azarenka
  • Yanina Wickmayer ended her 2011 season...btw any idea who that is in her website's header? 
  • While the AO boosted pirze money for Campions here is an example of how difficult it is for those not as lucky to be winning on the WTA tour 
Honorable ATP mention - Andy Murray keeps on keeping on, has now won Shanghai and as surpassed Federer on the rankings for the first time rising to number 3 in the world. Come on Muzz!

I'm very interested in the Aggie/Square Pants saga. Who will qualify for the YEC? Will someone choke? Will both excel? I'm tuning in to this soap "As The Tennis World Turns".

Don't fret, Carlos! Aggie has plenty left in her bag of tricks and certainly won't 'blow it' after her triumphant return to the top 8!

Aggie is playing the best tennis of her career that's for sure. I'll have to agree with once more Caps.

Dani H. lost in Luxembourg to a lucky loser Hradecka in three sets 6-7(3), 7-5, 6-1. Well done Dani! *note sarcasm*

In Moscow JJ lost in three sets to Ivanova 4-6, 6-1, 4-6.

Thank you for the week in review Captain!

Also I'm a little confused concerning Aggie/Square Pants and the YEC rankings.

Here it says Aggie has to make the quarters and Square Pants needs to win the title.

Elsewhere it says the same about Square Pants but Aggie only has to make the second round.

So, which is it?

Emily or as Carlos likes to call me "Captain" said...
