Poor Dementieva, Safina, Vera and Li. Points they can't defend.

Yes. They have to make up for it by playing whatever tournament is that week.

Just like Zurich is no longer an event so Venus, Flavia, etc will have to make up for it with whatever event is this year during that week.

Re: Does Olympics points come off this year?

Its a 52 week system so that week their points come off regardless of if the world is on fire.

The only remedy is to play whatever tournament is that week and compensate with that even if you may not be able to get the same amount of points due to Premier/International point totals.

So if it is Cincinnati that week, then yes.
