ISTANBUL, Turkey - Seven spots at the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships - Istanbul 2013 are set: Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka, Agnieszka Radwanska, Li Na, Petra Kvitova, Sara Errani and Jelena Jankovic (Maria Sharapova would have made it but had to withdraw with a shoulder injury).

Which players are still in the running for the eighth and final spot in the season finale?

The Frontrunner: Angelique Kerber

Caroline Wozniacki
needs to win Luxembourg next week

Sloane Stephens
needs to win Linz this week and Luxembourg next week

Roberta Vinci
needs to win Moscow next week
