ranking question

Can somebody explain Jennifer's and Maria's numbers. I've done the math over and over and there is no way I can see how Jennifer who was defending 428 points went from 2414 to 2590, and Maria went from 2462 to 2570. I must be missing something.

Myskina and Sprem have the same issue. The only explanation is that they retroactively gave those four players more bonus points than they had originally received for beating the Williams sisters in the French and Wimbledon.

that is the official explanation

Myskina and Sprem have been added 46 pts (both were awarded 86 when it should have been 132)
Sharapova and Capraiti added 64 (both given 86 when it should have been 150)

Good luck to my favs

thanks, that clears it up completely, I thought originally they were supposed to be getting those points and had always wondered why they didn't.

At least we won't have to worry about it anymore

That is, until Kim comes back
