Performance Ranking of the Top Eight Seeds

After the first round, here is a snapshot of the performance of the top eight seeds. I took three performance indicators and then ranked each of the top eight by these indicators. They are ranked on each indicator and then ranked based on the average of the three indicators. The results are below:

(Games Lost) (W/UE ratio) (Rank of opponent)
Jelana 4 [27/24 +3] 104
Score:10
Serena 5 [26/31 -5] 123
Score:14
Dinara 7 [/26 -19] 70
Score:15
Elena 13 [30/36 -6] 88
Score:17
Ana 8 [17/33 -16] 107
Score:19
Venus 6 [28/20 +8] 100
Score:9
Vera 6 [24/29 -5] 50
Score:8
Sveta 11 [28/23 +5] 99
Score:13

Based on this analysis, the first round winner is Vera, who played by far the toughest opponent based on rank. Her opponent was ranked 50. Venus was second, she played the cleanest match with a +8 W/UE ratio, but her opponent was ranked 100. Jelena lost the fewest games and therefore came in third. Sveta surprisingly rounds out the top four, despite dropping a set in her opening round. The final ranking is:

1. Vera (toughest opponent)
2. Venus (best W/UE ratio)
3. Jelena (fewest games lost)
4. Sveta
______________________________
5. Serena
6. Dinara
7. Elena
8. Ana

I will add to the analysis after each round until QF. Discuss.

Re: Performance Ranking of the Top Eight Seeds

How can Serena play worse than Jelena. No way.

Re: Performance Ranking of the Top Eight Seeds

ranking means nothing, look where Dokic is.

winners-u.e doesnt even tell an acurate picture...the match might be high quality with long rallies but this mite not show on statistics such as these

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Re: Performance Ranking of the Top Eight Seeds

Serena's W-UE wasn't -10 she hit like waaaay more than 6 winners and waay more than 16 errors lol

Edit: AO site says 26 winners to 31 errors which is -5 differential still not great but a little better lol.

Re: Performance Ranking of the Top Eight Seeds

Neither Sserena nor Venus tops the list. There must be something effing wrong.

Re: Performance Ranking of the Top Eight Seeds

Okay then. I think the answer is obvious though.
