What about ranking points??

If Serena pulls out (which looks like the case) and Marion steps in to play the remaining two matches... will both of them get ranking points for making it to the YEC??

Re: What about ranking points??

I was wondering the same thing!

I think Marion will get those 105 pts instead of Serena, but I am not too sure. It's not even made that she is competing ATM ^^.

Supporting Marion Bartoli - Aga Radwańska - Aravane Rezaï - Laura Robson - Caroline Garcia !!!

No one knows.

If Marion gets to the semis she will get points for that. If she finishes 4th she might get less than the usual 105 points.

Serena ... no clue.

Re: What about ranking points??

Well Eggy said that Serena would get a fraction of her points or something. But I really have no clue, don't understand this stuff

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaï
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

Re: What about ranking points??

Its a little confusing... If Bartoli gets to the semis, she gets the points, but what if she loses her next 2 matches?

I dont think Serena will get any points, not sure though!

Re: What about ranking points??

Well then surely Serena could just stand there, finish fourth and take the points since shes here anyway?

She could just say shes trying out a new style of stationary play

Would make sense (somewhat).

But what if Bartoli makes SF, does she get SF points minus 35 then?

Re: What about ranking points??

I was wondering the same thing, this has happened before at the YEC, right? Doesn't anyone remember what happened with the ranking points then?

I don't think it has ever happened on the women's side before.

Haha, with all the Davydenko affair?

I can see the title now 'Serena fined for not trying'

Serena after 'loosing' to JJ and JuJu:

'They were just too good for me i couldn't get near the ball, and the 24 double faults well i suppose that was just bad luck'
