The top 2 have the most points in a season - ever!

And there's still more to be earned.

Azarenka - 10955
Sharapova - 9135

Prior record: S.Williams 9075 in 2009
Prior record in #2 spot: Safina 7800 in 2009

Re: The top 2 have the most points in a season - ever!

Actually they are at

Azareanka 9911
Sharapova 9115

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.

Re: The top 2 have the most points in a season - ever!

You should double justines 2007 total as tournaments only had half as many points then.

Still good job by vika, maria, serena and aga.

Tell that to the WTA. (http://www.wtatennis.com/page/Rankin...~1~100,00.html)

You're looking at the race rankings which aren't what's used for the YE rankings.

Re: The top 2 have the most points in a season - ever!

Yeah if the tournaments award different points and if points are calculated differently u can't accurately compare unless u go back and adjust for the totals. It's like calculating movie totals and accounting for inflation...well sorta...lol

Race and actual WTA ranks will be the same for all the top players
so

Race only counts best 16 exact same formula as ranks

I'm pretty sure Evert & Nav, Graf & Seles (1991/92) had more points when they were #1 or #2...

Will be - yes. After the YEC. But not yet. Oh BTW No secret there.

pretty sure Dinara at some point during summer of 2009 had ~10500pts.

(and of course if we would recount past years under current system, they could beat Azarenka's pts easily.)

Re: The top 2 have the most points in a season - ever!

How many points did Sharapova and Henin have after RG 2007? Sharapova was number 2 with Wimbledon SF, USO W, AO F and RG SF. I think that Henin had over 7000 points (which would be 14.000 with this ranking system).

also, Azarenka finished last year with Luxemburg(280pts) + YEC (890pts). If she wants to earn more points than she did last year she has to win YEC. And she cant gain more points until Miami. Even if she pulls another 30 match winning streak, she'll stay around 11k for a couple months.

Re: The top 2 have the most points in a season - ever!

"ever" is very wrong term in this case because current ranking system exist just since 2009.

In first 20 years of existing official WTA ranking (1974-1994) almost every year's ending #1 have in terms of tennis achievements better season than todays #1 Azarenka and (almost) every #2 have better season than 2012 Sharapova - and in many of this 1974-1994 seasons both TOP2 have more impressive seasons than Azarenka 2012! Most famous top2 cases of that period is Evert-Navratilova, Navratilova-Evert, Graf-Navratilova, Graf-Seles, Graf-ASV...

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
