Re: Ranks

What if Vika loses in the semi to Serena and Serena wins the final against Maria -> would Vika be #2 or #3 behind Serena and Maria?

Re: Ranks

As a semi-finalist Maria Sharapova has already secured herself 9545 ranking points, and Vika will have to reach the final for 9725 points. If Vika lost in a possible semi-final to Serena Williams, Maria would secure her position as No.2.

In the terrible scenario if Na Li beats Vika in final and wins the whole tournament, then Serena is No.1, Vika is No.2 , Maria is No.3, Aga Radwanska is No.4 and Na Li is No.5...

At first a humble quote from yesterday:

LIVE WTA Rankings
Now No.1 position is in Vika´s own racquet. Next semi-final against Sloane Stephens and then the final against Na Li or the arch-rival Maria Sharapova. If Vika makes a final, and Maria loose a semi-final to Na Li, then Maria will be No.3. If Vika wins Maria in final, Vika will remain No.1 because she needs to win the final to get more ranking points than Serena Williams already has.

1. Serena Williams 9970
2. Maria Sharapova 9145 9545 10045 10645 (semi-finalist)
3. Victoria Azarenka 8825 9225 9725 10325 (semi-finalist)
4. Agniezska Radwanska 7750
5. Na Li 5355 5755 6255 6855 (semi-finalist)
6. Angelique Kerber 5695

16. Roberta Vinci 2585
17. Sloane Stephens 2066 2466 2966 3566 (semi-finalist)
18. Lucie Safarova 2160

Re: Ranks

After today´s final in Australian Open 2013 top 10 look like this:

1. Victoria Azarenka 10325
2. Serena Williams 9970
3. Maria Sharapova 9545
4. Agniezska Radwanska 7750
5. Na Li 6255
6. Angelique Kerber 5695
7. Sara Errani 4605
8. Petra Kvitova 4085
9. Samatha Stosur 4025
10. Marion Bartoli 3740

So Vika has been 48 weeks at No.1 and the next week will be her 49th. In the all time list of most weeks at No.1 Vika is currently No.10, Caroline Wozniacki is No.9 (67 weeks) and Serena Williams is No.6 (123 weeks) as active players.

Re: Ranks

As we know the current top 5 after Australian Open looks like this:

1. Victoria Azarenka 10325
2. Serena Williams 9970
3. Maria Sharapova 9545
4. Agniezska Radwanska 7750
5. Na Li 6255

Ranking points that the current top4 players defend from Doha to Roland Garros in 2013:

Doha February 2012: Victoria Azarenka (900), F Samantha Stosur (620), SF Agnieszka Radwanska (395).

Dubai February 2012: Agnieszka Radwanska (470), F Julia Görges (320), semifinalists (200).

Indian Wells March 2012: Victoria Azarenka (1000), F Maria Sharapova (700), semifinalists (450), QF Agnieszka Radwanska (250).

Miami March 2012: Agnieszka Radwanska (1000), F Maria Sharapova (700), QF Victoria Azarenka (250).

Charleston April 2012: Serena Williams (470).

Monterrey 2012: Timea Babos (280); Vika should play here after Miami tournament in April 2013; this tournament was played last year in February.

Stuttgart April 2012: Maria Sharapova (470), F Victoria Azarenka (320), SF Agnieszka Radwanska (200).

Madrid May 2012: Serena Williams (1000), F Victoria Azarenka (700), SF Agnieszka Radwanska (450), QF Maria Sharapova (250)

Rome May 2012: Maria Sharapova (900), F Na Li (620), SF Serena Williams (395), R16 Victoria Azarenka (125), R32 Agnieszka Radwanska (70).

Brussels May 2012: Agnieszka Radwanska (470).

French Open May-June 2012: Maria Sharapova (2000), F Sara Errani (1400), semifinalists (900), R16 Victoria Azarenka (280), R16 Na Li (280), R32 Agnieszka Radwanska (160), R128 Serena Williams (5)

As we can see Vika, Aga and Maria have to defend a large amount of ranking points in this time period, and on the other hand Serena and Na Li will have great opportunities to gain more points comparing to last year. According to Serena Williams´s official site http://serenawilliams.com/schedule/ she is planning to play in Doha, Dubai, Miami, Stuttgart, Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros.

Vika´s official site doesn’t tell yet about her actual tour schedule: http://www.vikaazarenkatennis.com/tour-information/

Re: Ranks

50 weeks as No. 1.

Quote:
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Victoria Azarenka hit the 50-week mark as the No. 1 ranked women's tennis player Monday.

Azarenka protected her top ranking by winning the Australian Open Jan. 26. She was atop the rankings for 19 weeks early in 2012 and returned to No. 1 last summer and had held the position for the last 31 weeks.

Her 50-week run at No. 1 is 10th most in WTA history. Carolina Wozniacki is ninth on the chart with 67 weeks.

[...]

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Not quite. Maria Sharapova was at #1 for 4 weeks from June 11, 2012 to July 8, 2012, and Vika was #2 for 4 weeks at same time. So Vika has been #1 for 51 weeks (19 + 32) before Serena Williams becomes a new #1 on February 18, 2013.

It´s true. She was the first player to become #1 without ever being #2. She just fell to #2 temporarily, when Sharapova won the French Open.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.
