That site is too confusing for me.....
Go here. Look at the #s to the right of the player's names. That is their Quality Points. If a player beats the #1 seed at a Slam, they earn 200 bonus points in addition to their round points. At the top of that page, you can see points by 1st round, 2nd round, 3rd round, etc.
Lets say that #3 Martina Hingis HAD beaten Jennifer in the finals. She would have gotten 194 points for winning the championship match AND 200 points for beating the #1 seed. The Quality Points are doubled at a slam because of their prestigiousness.
Also, a player can have a max of 18 tournaments on their ranking. If Martina plays 19 and that 19th tournament isn't as good as the other 18, then the best 18 get counted. For a player like Venus, who only plays 14, this has no relevancy.
Even more importantly, a player has points coming off for each tournament she played that previous year. At this year's AO, Jennifer had 1040 points to "defend". Immediately, Jennifer's ranking points dropped by 1040 points. Then, she had to win those points back to keep her old ranking. She didn't win all of them back, but did get a fair 1008 points.
I hope this explains things.
