How about this for a frantic, fantastic finish to the Hologic WTA Tour regular season?

With one week left, a single tournament -- the Guadalajara Open Akron -- will determine the majority of the singles field at the WTA Finals in Fort Worth. With three players qualified (Iga Swiatek, Ons Jabeur and Jessica Pegula), five spots remain.

Seventeen players are still mathematically alive -- and all of them are competing in this 1000-level event that begins Monday. Remembering that this is a fluid situation and other results have an impact on each player’s chances, here’s a breakdown of what they need to do stay in contention:
