Re: New Race Standings: Serena Opens Up A Huge Lead

The big difference is Serena always choose quality over quantity. If she continues at this rate and get to #1 it will be self explainatory as to how she got there.

I think the race to the championship should be calculated based on a certain # of tournies rather than all tournies played because we have seen where some people get in just by the quantity they play instead of their quality to be top 8.

BTW can you imagine if they were still awarding quality points how much more she would have gotten.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. MLK

Henin missed OZ Open & the whole OZ Open Series, that also explains why the gap is sooo big! but I agree it is Really Impressive!

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

i think what is more amazing is that Justine has more points than Martina with half the tournaments, AND that is with missing the AO.

And Serena has 1.5x the points Martina has playing half the tournaments.. just shows that the top 2 are far and away from the rest at the moment
