I'm sorry, but I don't understand what that's supposed to show???? That's only those player's performances on grass last year, I don't think that gives much of an indication into how they'll do this year...

Plus, since Lindsay couldn't play last year, it omits the woman who has the second best record on grass in the best three seasons.

Amelie has a better record then Justine?

Justine reached final and semi-final on wimbledon the last two years..she won Rosmalen two years ago and reached semi's last year. How can Momo possibly do better?

Unlike the clay season, it is impossible to rank players on Grass, 4 weeks including the 2 weeks of Wimbledon deems it impossible and this thread dead in the water.

yea, that's true...but how else are u gonna do grass comparisons as there are not much grass tourneys to begin with? Grass is just near to becoming obsolete, unfortunately...

since all grass tournament commitments are out,
it'll be interesting to review this ranking once again,
the are 3 players outside TOP 15 in WTA ranking
but ranked TOP 16 on grass, they are:
Elena Likhovtseva (RUS) TOP 10 on grass,
defending Wimbledon QF.....
then Lisa Raymond (USA) and Daja Bedanova (CZE)
so keep an eye on them during the grass "season"

the ones in TOP 15 but not on grass
are Lindsay who got injured last yr,
Kim who was off form last yr this time around,
so it'll be interesting to see how the do on grass

This is pointless. Are Jelena Dokic's 319 points in 3 events supposed to be that much better than Monica's 262 or Jen's 264 points in 1?

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

yes, that's how those points work,
remember, points are awarded for the matches you "win",
they dont represent how many matches you have lost,
if you know what i mean..............

yes Venus will have more points if WTA only counts
the highest 10 tournaments........but the problem is,
it DOES NOT.............which means, Kim is the #2 player this week,
there is really no point arguing about it......
"presently" Kim is considered to be better than Venus,
maybe not next week, but now, she is......
that's how the ranking works, either put up or shut up....
not that i'm mean or anything.

Yes, but this system has a maximum of 17 events. If you are giving someone credit for 3 Grass events, that's equivalant to a 30 event ranking over the year.

This thread is worthless. These so-called "rankings" indicate nada. Others have provided ample explanations as to why, ergo, there's no need for me to type anything else.
