Well the ranking system sucks but not for that what you mention, cause you can take for example Monica Seles 2000 she was out for moths cause of an injury and when she came back she beat Schett, who was seeded higher than Monica.... BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT MONICA BEATS HER AND IS A BETTER PLAYER....
But when a player has an injury they have the 6 six months rule, i think, but Anna Kournukova despite not being ready phisically kept coming back in August, then in October... so she never spent 6 months out of WTA, so the rule did not applied to her :s . But hopefully she can upset a lot more people and rank herself where she should be!
