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.
