Yep. I think it is obvious and there is no doubt about it...

Now, let's hope that (being pro-tennis veteran and fmr TOP10 player) Radek will serve as a good advisor to Petra. Vseticek's hiring seems to me a good step. As I do not care about all his WTA-women-career-killer aura, I think that Radek can have a positive influence on the road to so awaited Petra's maturity Time will tell...

Re: 2013 US Open – Out of Top 10

Can somebody explain Petra's ranking to me? How is she #7 in the race, with 3260 points, but #11 in the roling 52 week ranking, with 3170? That is, how the heck can she have more points in the race than in the rolling 52 week ranking? Doesn't the 52 week one include things that aren't in her race points?

Anyway, if the race points are to be believed, then news of her demise is greatly exaggerated, since she's actually securely in top 10 even after a horrible season.

Because the Ranking includes those mandatory tournaments-2012: Beijing and YEC, where Petra earned very few points 80+70.
In the race she has some points from more successful events (so far).
PS. The ranking and the Race include 16 best tournaments.

She has In the Ranking: Beijing and YEC: 70+80=150. In the Race - Paris and Carlsbad instead of them (so far) 120+120=240. And the difference is 240-150=90.. 3260-3170=90

Re: 2013 US Open – Out of Top 10

Very good explanation. Thanks, Hartson!

Will this make it harder or easier for Petra to gain more points compared to those who are nipping at her heels?

Looks to me like Petra has more tournaments played, but all her competitors -- JJ, Sloane, Vinci, Kerber, Woz -- also have more than 16 played (most have 20+), so hopefully it will just come down to performing better in the remaining tournaments for the rest of the year.

I'm surprised Halep isn't in the hunt here. Or maybe she is if she wins a big tournament like Beijing?
