They have the same number of Ranking and Quality points, yet Paola is ranked #1 and Virginia is ranked #2.

Any ideas?

Only reason I can come up with is because Paola played a couple tournaments with Conchita... and even though aren't in her Best 11, that could decide the tie-break.

I thought if a player plays fewer tournaments and gets the same number of points as the other one, she should be ranked higher...

It's the opposite ;)

That would be the sensible reasoning... but I'm just saying the only difference I could see. :p

That is why they have decided to play just with each other this year so they have the same ranking (they hope # 1) at the end of the year. Judging from the WTA Player Guide the Olympics is not giving ranking points for doubles, so it won't harm them to play there.
