Beijing, Bali, Quebec + Australian Open, Miami, French Open, Wimbledon, US Open. Lindsay was ranked within the Top 100 most of the year so she was automatically put on the list for these tournaments. Even though she didn't play them, they counted as zero points on her total.

The 4 Slams and Miami are all mandatory, so she has them on her record but 0 points from them

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

They started it this year didnt they? If you dont play a mandatory event, you get a ZERO. The ATP have been doing that for awhile now.

Re: How does Davenport have 8 events???

Thats what they do to put Slams and Miami points more valuable in the ranking.

This is to prevent some players who plays 30+ tournaments and losing first round of slams and still making it top of the WTA rankings.

This is also to help top players who plays seldom to get higher ranking even if they only play mostly SLAMS and Tier 1.

It's also why Justine Henin has 15 events on her ranking. Big fat 0 from the Australian !
