November 2 WTA rankings ?

Re: November 2 WTA rankings ?

Can't believe Venus fell to #6. There's something wrong with how the YEC points are attibuted. Too many points awarded for players who won just a single match in round robin, not enough points for players who make the semis. Don't even talk to me about the finalist points. And the winner has more than double points than the finalist. Toally unfair

Re: November 2 WTA rankings ?

Why should Venus be rewarded for being 1-2 and getting lucky to move into the semifinals? You reward match victories, not backdoor ways of getting lucky. I'm a Venus fan but you're just trying to find ways to complain. Serena's points are doubled over Venus' because Venus went 2-3 in Doha and Serena 5-0. I would hope they are doubled.

^ ditto, if venus had gone 2-1 in her rr she would have had more than half of serena's. more than than, had someone from the white group gone 3-0 and made the semis, they would have had a hell of a lot more points than vee and the ratio wouldn't be any different to in other tourneys

Re: November 2 WTA rankings ?

Well Venus made it to the semis regardless. That should be rewarded more than how many matches you win in round robins. I've enjoyed this YEC round Robin format but the ranking points about it is fucked up. lol at Radwanska getting 230 points.

Re: November 2 WTA rankings ?

Players don't get points for getting to the semifinals though, only if they win their semifinal. I've been wondering why this is because players get points for losing a RR match.

At the end of the day Vee recovered half her points from last year and is not farAwaY from top 5,she has points to gain in Australia if she decides to play.

while, I think the complaint that Serena got double what venus got is wrong..... I DO think its odd that a player makes the Semi's gets no points....unless that win that match..... And I also find it odd that Venus got 360 points for winning her semi and 370 points for winning 1 match in round robin play.... I think they need to rethink this system...
