with hantuchova's loss to szavay, marion officially moves into the tenth position for next week's rankings! :aparty:

took a bit longer than expected, but she made it.

incredibly good, and she's still in that tournament so she could move above the 10th position and she has very few points to defend at the USO.

I'm getting excited for Marion again!

Congrats Marion :aparty:

Way to go Marion! Those of us that have been watching her steady rise through the rankings over the years, we knew she could do it! Now for victory in New York!

Go Marion! I only just found out about this on Monday. :bounce: Haven't been able to follow things since San Diego, with my life being in a bit of a mess. It was obvious that she would break through eventually though!

and now she is number 9 and has overtaken Mauresmo >.< Tati must be dying right now that she's barely in the top 20 and Marion is the French number 1 :tape:

well, marion deserves it. :shrug:
i don't think tati even has a slam fourth round on her ranking. marion has three, including a final.

i hope she can play some of her best tennis after the us open and maybe qualify for the championships. :hearts:

Marion is now 14. Her schedule includes Tokyo, Stuttgart and Moscow and probably Zurich and Linz.

Concerning fft ranking which will be published beginning of october, I guess Marion will remain n°1. Gap between Marion and Alizé is currently about 250 pts. Marion has 125-60 = 65 pts and Alizé 55 pts to defend. So Alizé needs to play semi final both in Tokyo and in Beijing with a very early Marion's loss in Tokyo. Marion will fight in order to avoid it.

Concerning end of year ranking, Marion has to defend Moscow, Zurich and Linz points when Alizé has nothing to defend. Fight will be very interesting.

It is possible that the struggle will finish in Quebec with a ranking closer to 10.

Great resource Lighter. I have been searching for a resource like this.

Do you know why tournaments such as Sydney, Strasbourg, Dubai etc are not included in Marion's points list?

Great resource Lighter. I have been searching for a resource like this.

Do you know why tournaments such as Sydney, Strasbourg, Dubai etc are not included in Marion's points list?It's easy. The calculation is made from 17 best results including 4 GS and Miami (compulsory tournaments).
And her 18th best result is currently Charleston with 60 pts and 19th Moscow with also 60 pts.
Sydney with 35 pts is her 20th result.

In case of defeat in Tokyo in 1st or 2nd round, she will loose the week after 125 pts from Luxembourg. But as she's got 60 pts from Charleston, she'll only lose 125-60 = 65 pts.

And as she's got 60 pts in Moscow last year not included in the calculation, she has nothing to lose. But it will be better to have a good result before end of year due to 150 pts from YEC.

If you don't understand the calculation, please tell me.
