Rankings help please. Why has early Birmingham defeat not harmed Miss Sharapova?

Could one of the computer rankings "experts" out there explain the new rankings?

Despite losing in the semis at Birmingham which she won last year Miss Sharapova has gone further ahead of Petrova at #5 and is only 8 points behind J2H at #3.

This means she will now avoid the prospect of having to face one of the top 4 seeds in the Wimby quarters.

Margaret Thatcher - Michele Bachmann two strong women of our time.

also the fact Birmingham is a Tier III

Maria only stands to loose 79 pts from her SF at Birmingham.

and that is only if Birmingham is included in her 17 best events

Queen Vee, Super Rena, Krazy Kuzzie
