Re: WTA Ranks Update Thread
Kaia Kanepi & Venus Williams who both qualified for International Tournament of Champions in Sofia, failed to compete there (Mandatory Participation). According to WTA Official Rulebook 2012, p 176, they will automatically receive zero (0) points for the Tournament and it will count on that player’s ranking as one of her best 16 Tournament results. As 0 is missing, this circumstances are not reflected in Oct-29 column.
However, the results of Kaia Kanepi’s (16 tournaments) & Venus Williams (13 tournaments) season end ranking projection (as of 11/05/12) are unaffected.
