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.
