Already Brisbane can change No. 1 position

I don't know if everyone has recognised already but
WTA BRISBANE is 2012 a PREMIER Tournament.

Kvitova has won the tournament 2011, she earned 280 points for that.
Now, there are 470 Points for the winner.
A plus of 190 points.

1. Wozniacki 7485
2. Kvitova 7370

I know it doesn't change much,
but I think it's an interesting fact for the 2012 season,
that the first week can change no.1 position already.

If Kvitova wins Brisbane again she can possibly be the new WTA #1.

Re: Already Brisbane can change No. 1 position

So, therefore Kvitova has to play Brisbane to have the chance to become World Nr. 1

Re: Already Brisbane can change No. 1 position

Until, unless Petra plays something else before the Australian, we have to assume it'll be there where things can happen.

In Melbourne Petra will be defending a quarter final and Woz will be defending a semi-final. And the way things are going now, who would you place your bets on, that would defend their points?

I know who I would pick.

Re: Already Brisbane can change No. 1 position

They're both in Perth, not going for points.
But the #1 will change hands. And dont be surprised if Maria doesnt get there for a while.
She doesnt have that much to defend early 2012

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Good Points Goldenlox

But I think Maria's 800 points behind Petra and 900 behind Caro right now.

Remember she's ranked 4th now.

So this means that Petra actually loses points which means that Caro's chances to stay at #1 longer increase.

Re: Already Brisbane can change No. 1 position

Wozniacki will be sure to do better in ther first tournament to get ahead of Barkova a little. Then, as the season goes on, Wozniacki's massively superior consistency will see her ahead of everyone else.

Re: Already Brisbane can change No. 1 position

I don't think it's healthy to be obsessed about the no.1 ranking so I think Kviova will just take it as it comes. I assume she'll watch her greatest achievements this year from the YEC and Wimbledon and see her manic reactions at times during the YEC, hopefully she can knock that behaviour on the head because that's the only thing I don't like about watching her play. At Wimbledon she was even better and her reactions were so cool and calm she showed nothing to her opponents, Evert herself would have been proud of her reactions.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Maybe she's just not concerned about #1, you know, like she says?

The only people obsessed about #1 seem to be TF trolls..

Re: Already Brisbane can change No. 1 position

Petra will have to play better on outdoor hardcourts to get to #1. She can overtake Caro early, but she has QF pts to defend at the AO and it isn't a given she will do it or do better. Then she has Paris to defend (only indoor tournament at the beginning of the year). She can get it during IW/Miami as she has nothing to defend there. If she doesn't it will be difficult with Madrid to defend and the clay season coming, and from that moment Caro will have little to defend.
Still Petra HAS to make it.

Well, I don't want her to turn into a robot (like Azarenka in the final ). I understand that the bark can be annoying to some people, but it's not bad that she shows some emotions. Actually, many people accused her of being too cold after winning Wimbledon.

Well, you know you can't please everybody. You do one thing, one way; they complain and say they want something else.

PS: I think Kvitova's goal is to exceed her 1/4 appearance in the Australian Open. That's why I think she'd scheduled Hopman Cup; cause at the time, she was still struggling with her form, then. If she can find a tournament to enter or wild card, before the Australian (besides Hopman), I'm sure she will.

I think there's a time and a place to react like that but she really went crazy after winning every point regardless of how it was done, she seemed in very little control of her emotions. I really like her and she has so much game but you have to admit it was quite manic and unnecessary at times. At Wimbledon she was quite amazing in how she handled the whole thing and the great thing about her showing nothing there emotion wise is that someone like Sharapova couldn't read how she was feeling and capatalise on it. I really hope she can continue to play like she has because she is an amazing player.
