Could one of the computer rankings "experts" out there explain the new rankings?

Despite losing in the semis at Birmingham which she won last year Miss Sharapova has gone further ahead of Petrova at #5 and is only 8 points behind J2H at #3.

This means she will now avoid the prospect of having to face one of the top 4 seeds in the Wimby quarters.

Because the Calendar is a week later this year

Edgbaston Points fell off the week before last

Last week Edgbaston went on and Eastbourne fell off


Thanks for explanation,Judio.

I can now understand it.

also the fact Birmingham is a Tier III

Maria only stands to loose 79 pts from her SF at Birmingham.

and that is only if Birmingham is included in her 17 best events
