Re: Ranks

Is Vika going to drop in the rankings now that Na won the title in Sydney and Vika only reached the quarters?

Re: Ranks

Vika now 8th in singles and 19th in doubles

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Ranks

I haven't updated my docs about ranking predictions for a year, but I have a feeling it looks good for Vika in the upcoming months as she hardly won any matches last clay court season. I know she isn't playing her best tennis these days but she fights more than ever

Re: Ranks

It looks good for Vika. I hope you are able to read my table here. The three players with yellow highlighted points are still playing in Miami and therefore have a chance to gain more points before the clay season.
The next column is the total number of points each player will lose during the clay season not counting the French Open and the tournament before the French Open as loss of those points won't affect the French Open seeding. And the next and last column represent how many points a player have going into the clay season as if they don't have anything to defend during the clay season.


Vika has 5 points from Madrid 2010 to defend (her 2010 Rome points are not counting towards her ranking right now). Jankovic has to gain more than 700 points more than Vika during the clay season and Sharapova about 450 (but she also has Miami to gain more points) and Stosur about 150 in order for Vika to drop out of top8. I don't see that happening. Sure Jankovic is a better clay court player, but not 700 points more than Vika.
Looking in the other direction, Vika might pass Li, they are very close, but the gap to top 4 (Schiavone) is huge. Vika needs to win Miami to have a chance IMO. So I would say it is very likely for Vika to be seeded in the 5-8 group for French Open.

Looking towards Wimbledon, I am more positive. Schiavone drops 2000 from French Open, Vika only 5. Eastbourne points from 2010 will count towards the seeding, so it is not totally unrealistic for Vika to be seeded 4 at Wimbledon, IF she countinues to get good results and not have another 2010-like clay season

Re: Ranks

Thank you for the table! I was just thinking about this yesterday. There's a huge gap between Vika's points and Jelena's right now, but Jelena is defending a crapload on clay (as is Stosur and Schiavone). If Vika can replace her Eastbourne 2010 points somewhere in the clay season, so winning a title on clay (which would be her first) is crucial.

Re: Ranks

Great!

Btw I read somewhere that if Vika wins tonight she'll jump over Jankovic, and if she wins the whole tournament she'll get to #6.

Re: Ranks

^ what you've heard is correct. That would be amazing, but I don't dare to dream about her beating Vera and then winning such a title

Re: Ranks

If she beats Vera, I think she'll win the title.

Sharapova is semi-injured and still struggling with form (the Dulgheru match ) and Petkovic would be super nervous.

Tonight's match is a big one!

Re: Ranks

If Vika can maintain her form during the clay season she will get a new career high ranking I am sure. 4 or 5. The gap between Caro, Kim, Vera and the rest is too big right now - unless Vika starts dominating, but I don't see that happening. Vika will also be up to number 7 in race to the Championship, 6 if she wins the final, so things are really looking bright right now
