Ranking Question: How Does Serena Have 9 Tournaments Right Now?
So, according to everyone, she hasn't played a WTA tour match since she beat Zvonareva in the final of Wimbledon last year. So, that would SEEM to indicate that she's only played ONE tournament in the past year. So, why does the current WTA rankings say she's played 9 tournaments in the past 52 weeks?
Just a question. I just don't get how the rankings work in this case. According to what I know of the system, you can't even have a ranking if you haven't played three tournaments in the past year. So, technically, shouldn't Serena be unranked?
