The rankings do accurately reflect who the best players are.

However, if rankings were based purely on the players' performance at major events (the 4 slams, 10 Tier Is, Tour Championships, Dubai and Doha) over the past 12 months, they might look something like this:

1. Justine Henin
2. Serena Williams
3. Jelena Jankovic
4. Maria Sharapova
5. Venus Williams
6. Ana Ivanovic
7. Anna Chakvetadze
8. Svetlana Kuznetsova
9. Martina Hingis
10. Daniela Hantuchova

If you made these rankings after the FO, it would have been completely different than the ones u make now.
There could be a totally different one after the AO.

That's why they use 12 months, not the last few days.

Am a little unsure of Venus at #2 considering that it's based purely on Wimbledon/US open but it does looks like her current form is here for a while and so she gets an edge over Jelena. Serena hasn't been beyond the QFs since Miami (a lot to do with unfortunate draws, yes) and so i really don't think she deserves to be higher than Jankovic who has been unbelievable this year. If Serena gets a non-Justined draw in her next tourney i might re-consider. Sharapova hasn't had a great year but she's still definately top5. Kuzzy seems to be a running joke with a lot of people but the stats speak for themselves-she's #2 in the world this week so i don't think she deserves to be any lower than #6. I think Ivanovic just has the edge over Chaky right now and i think she will finish just higher than her this year. Mauresmo's injuries have been really unfortunate but she's a top10 player at least. Nadia hasn't done an awful lot this year either but i still think she deserves a place here for now.

Bartoli, Hantuchova, Vaidisova, Schnyder, Dementieva, Safina, Hingis have all been top10 recently but based on overall performance this year they don't really deserve a place. Nicole has been hyped up but hasn't even won a title this year which even Dani has (and Bartoli's wimbledon final is better than a title!), Hingis has lost it since about March etc etc. I'd leave them outside the top10 in that order.

Wow, i wasted too much time on that!

Yes, but I ascribed my own value to those accomplishments. For instance, I had Venus & Serena higher than JJ because I put more weight on their GS title wins, even though the rankings show JJ to be the higher ranked player than both.

I won't ignore the rankings, they are what they are. All players deserves it if they got there.
They play and win matches, thus earning points.

Now if you just sit and show at majors, then you only have major points which is highly bigger than regular title points.

Who cares who is injured? everybody can be injured and no one is an alien! that's why doping test is regular. Being healthy and fit is part of the equation and should be rewarded.
