This is all well and good until one remembers that Serena and Lindsay have both retired from two tournaments with injuries/illness. With those points and tournaments taken off their records, Serena is clearly number one (1470/3=490 points per tourney) and Lindsay is number three (1846/5=369.2 points per tourney). Don't know if this really means anything or not, but it shows that average tournament scores can be skewed very easily with a retirement or two.

So true. It wasn't like Lindsay was really going to beat Justine on clay.

Of course if you average 2/3 tournies they are going to have more points simple statistics ... not to say they arent kicking ass but u cant compare 2 tournments to 9 ... it doesnt yield reliable results.

wrong. If you don't count those tournaments, obviously you don't count the points aquired at them:rolleyes: . Serena's average would become distorted because she would have played just two tournaments (Miami and the Oz Open,) and Oz awards a lot of points. She'd have an average of like 662, but clearly she has had a sucky year in comparison to the Belgians and Sharapova.

Davenport's average works out to 300.8 with Charleston not included.

If she had continued to play as in the first set, she would have beaten Justine. Henin was not herself in that match (hasn't reached her old form quite yet.)

Well, Justine began very strong in the first set, she collapsed after the injury break. For some reason, Justine seems to have a hard time playing against an opponent who's injured, but not injured enough to retire...

No, not wrong actually, I subtracted the points from the tournments they retired from and divided by the new number of tournaments. I'm just saying that a healthy Serena and Lindsay and still right up there. I'm also trying to show that at this early point in the season one or two tournaments makes a HUGE difference in average point ranking. It also must be pointed out that Serena has won the only major tournament so far this year so its hard to say she's having a 'sucky' year (esp. compared to Sharapova).

Well Justine was playing well up until the injury time out. Granter Lindsay wasn't playing that well until the time out, but if Justine had kept her level up just as she did in the first 5 games or so, she would atleast have challenged for the first set if she didn't go on to win it. Justine was waaaaay too nervous in this match as soon as Lindsay started to fire away winners. Lindsay couldn't maintain the level she played in the first because of the injury but Justine was also making less errors and started playing more consistently in the second. After the second set, I had no doubt that Justine would eventually win that match no matter how well Lindsay was going to play.

It's easy to talk AFTER the match is completed and the result is already known.
