I disagree with the premise of this question. EVERY ranked deserves to be where they are. Please be reminded that the WTA's ranking system is not like figure skating where the scores are subjective. Every ranking position is empirically derived, hence the question of who deserves what is irrevelant. What has been confusing to many including some on this board is the purpose of the ranking system. The ranking system that has been in existence for over 25 years is NOT to determine who the "BEST" player is. For that reason, the system has been attacked and derided by many in the media and message boards. That's unfortunate. The ranking system, with all of its flaws works.
No One Can Make You Feel Inferior Without Your Consent

Until the philosophy which holds one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war...
