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?
