Wow, Pennetta is so low. I didn't realize she got to the top 10 by being an MM queen.

Not surprised, i think Beijing was the only mandatory tournament Marion won matches at this year.

I think phelbyn was talking about the race where Wozniacki is 3rd.

Jelena Dokić ~ Kim Clijsters
Angelique Kerber ~ Simona Halep

Jelena Ostapenko - Mona Barthel
Petra Cetkovská - Jana Čepelová
Karolina Šprem - Mirjana Lučić
Daniela Hantuchová - Ivana Lisjak

Venus is the 6th here and 7th in the race. How is this "much lower"?

Why not give weight to all premier tournaments? Why stop at Premier 5?

If you go by premier wins and finals, Caroline should definitely be higher than Azarenka.


Caroline has 2 premier wins this year, 1 premier 5 final, 1 premier mandatory final and 1 grandslam final.

That definitely beats Azarenka's one win at Miami even though it was mandatory. Has Azarenka made any other significant finals this year? Let's say Azarenka's Miami win is equal to Caroline's grand slam final, what does Azarenka has that stacks up against Caroline's additional 2 premier wins, 1 premier 5 final and 1 premier mandatory final? Slightly better performance at the other slams? So what she made a couple of QFs. That shouldn't count for much, but unfortunately I fear the weight distribution in these rankings is rigged.

Re: 20 Best Performers at 13 biggest tournaments in 2009

Interesting table of data.

It was a surprise to see Pova on the list. I was watching her game to see if she would even be able to really play tennis anymore! With the new serve motion in Tokyo, I was satisfied she would be a major contender in 2010.

However, if one looks at these averages, it appears that Pova was playing Top 5 tennis during her seemingly modest "comeback" season, especially with poor performances at W and USO figured in. More reason for optimism...

Notice how Bartoli, Pennetta, and Wozniacki drop considerably.

Re: 20 Best Performers at 13 biggest tournaments in 2009

Clearly, it needs to be recalculated until Elena is #1. This whole bridesmaid thing is wearing me down almost as much as having to work the damn bangs into every post.

Actually, it's pretty interesting.
