Safina is scheduled to play Stuttgart. If that happens, that will be after a 2 1/2 month layoff.
If Serena and Safina don't get it together soon, Wozniacki could possibly make a run for #1 though quite a few things would have to happen especially with her playing 6 clay events leading up to the French. Kuznetsova is only playing 3 events before the French and she has a title and a runner-up finish to defend.
With the sad state of affairs in the top 5 and with Azarenka still wishy-washy, this leaves a lot of openings for Venus, Clijsters, Jankovic, and a few others to potentially feast on.
