Top 3 year ago are the biggest losers
(Caro -5169 i. e. more than half; Vera -4035, Kim -6802 but she barely started )
The biggest increase note Radwanska(+4204). Vika(+3595). Maria(+2449); Pętra(+2507) and naturally Kerber(+2298)
who year ago was on 70 position with 937 points. Naturally Aga and Angie had easier task starting from low position
Still their progress is amazing
And grenerally WTA is far from stability. It's a time of big and quite rapid changes

Thank god... Saint Sin and that other russian was #2 for WAY too long aren't missed in the top 10. Hopefully Bartoli joins them soon.

Re: TheTimes they are a-changin' - rankings WTA

Have the points from Rome for last year's tournament been taken off or will they come off next Monday?

Serena added around 2800 points to her ranking between 2011 and 2012, which is more than Kerber.

Re: TheTimes they are a-changin' - rankings WTA

Big move from Radwanska. Weak 12 months from Wozniacki, who was holding 8 titles a year ago. 5 Tier I's

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

Re: TheTimes they are a-changin' - rankings WTA

Last year was a Hingis like year for Woz. Her game gave players problems. But her game is nothing but a matter of let me watch you lose. It gets old fast. We've seen it before and I'm shocked that she had 8 titles last year and we are about to be halfway through the year and she has 0?!? Doesn't speak of her game but everyone else's.

Apart from Radwanska, the top 6 look stronger than the previous year.

7 players of the top 10 are the same, so i'm not sure what you're talking about.
