Re: ~Petra Martic~

I hope she starts the year with Brisbane qualies.
I guess soon we'll know where she will play.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

I think their is some request, or voting involved. I remember I was verry active when trying to get sub forum for Lucic. You need to get many votes.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Seems like Petra is in entry list of Shenzhen.

I would love if she would get sub forum.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

It would be very nice if Petra gets her own subforum. I am looking forward to an awesome year by her. If you read this thread regularly, it would be cool if you would let them know you support this at the link above

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Interesting article about what would happen to the rankings if big wins counted. Petra would be ranked 34!

Thanks for posting this - just proves again what I've been saying for years; that switching away from quality point system was one of the stupidest things the folks at WTA have ever done. Nowdays, players with excellent fitness - who can play a lot - or a fat checkbook - who can afford to travel half way around the world for a tournament (caugh, caugh...) - can build their ranking with considerbly less trouble.

I wouldn't go that far, but Donna's ranking would certainly be a lot closer to 200 than to 100. Of course, that would still be awesome for someone her age, but not as awesome as her current position.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Thought it would be useful to have - Petra's 2012 points (Mandatory events are underlined):

January: Australian Open (5)
February: Paris (60), Dubai (20), Kuala Lumpur (200)
March: Indian Wells (5), Miami (5)
April: Copenhagen (130), Budapest (70)
May: Madrid (5), French Open (280)
June: Wimbledon (5)
August: US Open (5)
September: Quebec City (30), Tokyo (125), Beijing (1)
October: Linz (70)

Results that don't count towards her ranking: R1 losses in Doha, Rome, Bad Gastein and Luxembourg, each earning her 1 point.

So until the French she has exactly 500 to defend and a little more starting with the French until the end of the season. Currently, she is some 450 points behind a spot that would lead her to Grand slam seeding - do you guys think she can get there in 2013? I think it's doable (assuming she stays healthy, of course), especially if we consider that she has 3 slams and 4 other mandatories where she can only gain points compared to 2012.

Good luck in China!
