Sally Fitzgibbons, Tyler Wright, Stephanie Gilmore or Carissa Moore. Who will be the 2014 ASP Women's World Tour champion?

The world title race is coming to a spectacular finish. Three Australians and a Hawaiian may decide who will raise the cup at the Cascais Women's Pro 2014, in Portugal.

Gilmore is the only surfer with the chance to clinch the world title in the penultimate stop of the season, despite being currently ranked in the third position.

She can only claim her sixth world title if she wins the event, Wright finishes no higher than fifth, and Fitzgibbons and Moore end up no higher than third.

If things do play out in Gilmore's favor, her points would be unbeatable regardless of what happens at the Target Maui Pro, the final women's event of the season.
