Race - -Points Through the Year?

Can anyone explain to me how you lose points from a week ago in the Race to WTA Champs. I thought the race was on points raised throughout the year.

Kvitova had 5310 last week this week 5215

Errani had 2465 last week this week 2400

Can someone help? Am I being thick!

Re: Race - -Points Through the Year?

The Race only counts 16 best, and Beijing is a mandatory event. Prior to Beijing, Kvitova's 16th best must have been a 175 pointer, but she only earned 80 points in Beijing which means that her 175 was replaced with an 80. Thus a net loss of 95 points.

Same with Errani. 5 replaced her 16th best of 70 points.

Thanks, pump it up. From what Eurosport said I thought all points were added not your best 16! As Serena, Vika and Maria have not played 16 events this year.

Someone tweet Chris Bradnam and Jo Durie, they both say points to the race to Istanbul is just from points, they do not mention your best 16 events!

Also Kvitova has 2 0-pointers in her points.

All mandatory events are part of their ranking, as well as mandatory 0s from withdrawing from certain events they were committed to.
