WTA Rankings for 2004 Australian Open seedings purposes

The rankings would look like just before the first week of 2004 in Aukland/Gold Coast. Rankings (below) #1-40 are determined when the pts from Auckland, Gold Coast, Sydney, Canberra and Horbort from last year are taken off.

Highlighted shown are which events the players will be playing in the first week of 2004.

1 J. HENIN-HARDEN - 6502.00
2 K. CLIJSTERS - 6203.00 (HOPMAN CUP)
3 S. WILLIAMS - 3916.00 (HOPMAN CUP)
4 A. MAURESMO - 3194.00 (HOPMAN CUP)
5 L. DAVENPORT - 2770.00

6 J. CAPRIATI - 2765.00
7 A. MYSKINA - 2526.00 (HOPMAN CUP)
8 E. DEMENTIEVA - 2382.00
9 C. RUBIN - 2233.00
10 A. SUGIYAMA - 2233.00

11 V. WILLIAMS - 2211.00 (HONG KONG)
12 N. PETROVA - 1955.00
13 V. ZVONAREVA - 1725.00
14 P. SUAREZ - 1491.00
15 J. DOKIC - 1405.00

16 C. MARTINEZ - 1315.00
17 A. SMASHNOVA - 1290.00
18 D. HANTUCHOVA - 1207.00 (HOPMAN CUP)
19 M. SHAUGHNESSY - 1194.00
20 F. SCHIAVONE - 1165.00

21 M. SERNA - 1164.00
22 S. FARINA ELIA - 1150.75
23 E. BOVINA - 1113.00
24 P. SCHNYDER - 1075.00
25 L. KRASNOROUTSK - 1073.00

26 L. RAYMOND - 1044.25
27 A. COETZER - 1032.00
28 T. PISNIK - 1029.50
29 M. SHARAPOVA - 1024.25 (HONG KONG)
30 M. MALEEVA - 1004.00

31 E. DANIILIDOU - 1001.75
32 M. PIERCE - 953.00
33 N. DECHY - 929.00
34 T. TANASUGARN - 927.75
35 S. KUZNETSOVA - 926.00

36 F. ZULUAGA - 837.75
37 K. SREBOTNIK - 825.50
38 E. LIKHOVTSEVA - 803.50
39 P. MANDULA - 797.75 (HOPMAN CUP)
40 A. MOLIK - 783.00 (HOPMAN CUP)


Looks like Sharapova is the last player who is guaranteed to be seeded for AO Open 2004. From Maleeva #30 to Kuznetsova #35, they would need to race to get some points for AO seedings by playing in the first week of 2004.

Of course, the rankings and AO seedings will be determined after Auckland/Gold Coast. Soon, we have to find out which players will be playing at Auckland and Gold Coast.

You are better off just taking Auckland and Goldcoast off, that is when the seedings are made.

Of Course I'm out of my Mind



It's freakin dark and scary in there

Eggy, can you confirmed this that the first two weeks from last year are taken off? If Hobart pts do not count, then I will revised then.

Yes, Gold Coast/Auckland and Sydney/Canberra/Hobart will come OFF for those rankings

and only Gold Coast/Auckland will go ON.

AO starts one week later this year.

We can't forget about a certain Hungarian-Yugoslavian-American who will probably get an Oz seed somewhere equal to, or better than 18.

Faboozadoo, as Monica fans, I think we should want her to be seeded #18 because then she could meet anyone ranked from #9-#16 in the third round. And if she is drawn to meet 9-12, then she would meet 5-8 in the fourth round. Whereas if she's seeded 16, she's defininitely slated to meet 1-4 in the fourth round. It's a slight difference, but..
