Serena is out of Top 500 with last year's Wimbledon points off

Serena is just outside the Top 500 after taking last year Wimbledon points off. She has merely 60 points from this year's Eastbourne.

She needs to reach the semifinals of Wimbledon to stay inside the Top 100 after Wimbledon, reach the final to stay inside the Top 50, or defend her title to stay inside the Top 30.

Her sister, Venus is at #40 with last year's points off.

She would only have an Eastbourne 2R if Wimbledon was taken off. This isn't surprising. She missed 49 weeks due to injury. She will be fine.

Would she be taken off the ranking?

I thought you needed to play at least 3 tournaments to be ranked.

No longer. As long as you earn more than 10 points, you can have a ranking - regardless of the number of events. Plus, Serena would have "0's" in her ranking due to missing mandatories. Those are counted as tournaments played but we've never had this situation so not sure if the WTA would acknowledge those if push came to shove.

Interesting. What about entry to USOpen? When is the cutoff date?
Assuming the entry list is after Wimbledon, and assuming she loses before SF or whatever and she's ranked out of the #100, would she need a WC

Supposedly Serena will receive a protected ranking. I haven't read or seen anything published about that yet. You can use a PR for one slam. Hopefully Serena is in the top 108 before OZ. I don't think we have to worry about that.

Not an issue. She'll get a SR.
Plus, you'd think she'd enjoy it. She'll get to play any tournament she wants with a WC, and won't have any tournament or media commitments

Re: Serena is out of Top 500 with last year's Wimbledon points off

as a slam champ, she can get unlimited WCs so, assuming no tournament is stupid enough to turn her down, she won't even need an SR

ugh, why do they all suck????????

It's all about the climb, the comeback. We've seen her fall. Now it's time to rise and regain momentum. That's the beauty of her game.

Of course but those WCs should be used for other players.

As if it would take her long to get back up into the Top 50 anyway. Every tournament after Wimbledon for the next year will be a positive addition to her ranking.
