Anyone Has Any Idea How the Australian Boycott will effect Justine's Ranking?

She would lose quite a lot of ranking points since she is skipping the places where she had a final and a win.

It is too bad she can^t at least make the AO. Perhaps she will reconsider,I hope so! No official reason yet?

Re: Anyone Has Any Idea How the Australian Boycott will effect Justine's Ranking?

Justine loses 195 points from Sydney and 492 points for the AO final, so that would mean her new point total is 3311. Her new ranking basically depends on well Maria, Amelia, Sveta, Kim, Nadia and Martina perform in the Australian events. I'd guess that Justine will wind up somewhere in the #3-4 spots after it's all said and done.

Sveta only made the SF at Sydney and R16 at AO last year as she was ranked lowly this time last year so she ran into players like Justine and Davenport relatively early

It's not a boycott. A boycott is defined by abstaining from or preventing dealing with an institution or business as a means of coercion or as a means to make a statement of some kind about said institution or business.

Don't mean to nitpick, just thought you might like to know.

Justine is going through a rough time her husband is a homosexual. And for any woman that is damaging to the psyche. I have suggested some books she could read in another thread to get through this rough time.

Re: Anyone Has Any Idea How the Australian Boycott will effect Justine's Ranking?

it's lunacy to not play these tournaments. surely she's well rested after the last six weeks off the tour. I know she's having a few relationship issues at the moment, but I cannot understand why she can't just put it aside for a few weeks and tackle afterwards. She could slip to as low as 4 in the world because of this tiff with PY

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

OK, I might be a bit behind the times, but I just though Justine and Pierre-Yves were divorcing like many married couples do.

But what everyone's been assuming for so long is really true?

Nothing is confirmed or necessarily true. People are voicing their opinions, and some, their wishes.

We know nada, nada. It if is relationship issues, I would definitely be mad with PY for not waiting until after a GS before any decisions are made or whatever. I just think it's something else, something she can't leave.

Re: Anyone Has Any Idea How the Australian Boycott will effect Justine's Ranking?

I just want to say that some of the responses in this thread are truly pathetic. It is beyond my comprehension how some of you can;'t understand why Justine isn't playing (if the rumours or true) it's no wonder why Vee and Serena get chided for having outside interests, when some of you can't even give a girl (again if the rumors are true) with relationship problems a break. Truly sad. Some of you need to be reminded that tennis is only a game.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams
