in Doha we had 2 seed players in the final, and so it was
possible to reach 8 points
in Acapulco we had 1 seed and 1 unseeded player, and so it was
possible to pick both players and to reach 9 points
and so 17 points was the maximum to reach this week.
1.raquel............ 38 = 52,78% of possible points
2.geewhiz........... 36 = 50,00% of possible points
2.Lady.............. 36 = 50,00% of possible points
2.tuna.............. 36 = 50,00% of possible points
2.Rollo............. 36 = 50,00% of possible points
2.GoDominique....... 36 = 50,00% of possible points
the Acapulco final hasnīt started yet, and so i will most likely not be able to post the new ranking before the board is down
sorry for that
i will try to post it in the wtaworld section from www.menstennisforums.com (http://www.menstennisforums.com)
