27th now, and closer to 29 than to 24:sad:
Azarenka will pass her if she wins 1 match in Charleston, Cibulkova with a QF.
Flavia will pass Razzano if she reaches the final, and she will also pass Davenport if she wins the tournament. She needs a SF to gain any points at all.

Interesting this week:
Flavia and Katerina are 4 points apart in the rankings and they play each other in the 1st round:eek:
But even if Katerina wins she needs to win the 2nd round too to overtake Flavia:devil:

On the other hand, Flavia also needs to reach the 3rd round at least to win any ranking points at all, and needs to go beyond that to possibly move up in the rankings.

Zamboni
May 29th, 2008, 07:07 PM
#24 now :)

Closest players who are still in are Cibulkova and Wozniacki who are respectively 185 and 224 points away, meaning they have to make the SF to pass her.

So I guess that ranking is pretty safe.

Zamboni
Jun 10th, 2008, 10:09 AM
She dropped a spot because she's not defending Barcelona points.
However, it's gonna get real interesting after Wimbledon. She's actually gonna have points to defend. So she needs more than 35 points per tournament then :p

Top 10?
No way. She's about 700 points away, and she has quite a bit to defend for the rest of this year, it's just too far away.

Honestly, I don't think she belongs there either. She barely belongs in top20

I looked at the points to defend from now until the rest of the year for all the players between 12 and 20 in next weeks ranking:

12 Chakvetadze (1782) – 475 (Madrid 335 – Linz 70 – Luxembourg 70)
13 Schnyder (1702) – 380 (Linz 190 – Luxembourg 70 – Zurich 60 – Moscow 60)
14 Bartoli (1635) – 510 (Madrid 150 – Linz 125 – Luxembourg 125 – Zurich 110)
15 Azarenka (1543) – 260 (Moscow 110 – Tashkent 80 – Luxembourg 70)
16 Pennetta (1525) – 255 (Bangkok 140 – Tokyo 65 – Seoul 50)
17 Wozniacki (1483) – 65 (Tokyo 65)
18 Cornet (1384) – 55 (Bordeaux 55)
19 Szavay (1299) – 305 ( Beijing 275 - Seoul 30)
20 Cibulkova (1235) – 100 (Guangzhou 65 – Beijing 35)

These are only the points from their best 17, so it's to be assumed that even if they lose all these points, most of them will gain some points back from tournaments that are not in their best 17 now (Flavia for example won't lose more than 165 points no matter what happens).

However, I think Wozniacki will surely pass Flavia, possibly Cornet too, but a top 20 finish for the year is quite certain :yippee: And there's a possibility of a new best ranking too, with 1 or 2 good tournaments she can do it!

she will not.
Only the best 17 results count in your ranking, Flavia's 17th result is now 35 points, so she needs to get more than 35 points in Bali to gain any ranking points. Which means she has to make the semi's to become #15.

and there's another important thing...even if Flavia lose 50 points newt week Azarenka lose 70 points too...but more important Bartoli lose 125 points going at 1510 while Flavia would have 1505... see there ranking (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/includes/TrackIt.asp?file=http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/2/global/Pdfs/rankings/2008/singles_Numeric.pdf)

Look here, Giulio: http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=8073837&postcount=1

That is with Luxembourg points taken off. Flavia isn't playing, so she can't take #14
Next week Tokyo and Stuttgart are off, so only Flavia and Wozniacki lose points.

And the week after that, Bangkok is taken off....
If she doesn't win a match in Stuttgart she might drop all the way to 19:sad:

12. Chakvetadze (1747) - 475 (Madrid 335 – Linz 70 – Luxembourg 70)
13. Petrova (1698) - 0
14. Hantuchova (1670) - 520 (Linz 275 - Madrid 185 - Zurich 60)

670 points on outdoor hardcourt, 9 tournaments = 74 points average
540 points on clay, 6 tournament = 90 points average

Including Moscow in hardcourt tournaments gives:
780 points, 10 tournaments = 78 average


Clay still wins ;)

Fantasy Hero
Oct 12th, 2008, 08:06 PM
yes, but there aren't tournaments where she made too few points...so we should make the avarage counting Bogota and Olympics to say two of them...
however it's important to see she made lots of points out of clay...and she could make many more points 'till crappy south amarica's tournaments...so...:lol:

The race counts points from all the tournaments played in so far during the current year whereas the ranking counts the points from the slams, Miami, and the best 13 other tournaments over the past 52 weeks.

No way. She's about 700 points away, and she has quite a bit to defend for the rest of this year, it's just too far away.

She's almost sure to finish the year in the top15 anyway:drool:
Even if Azarenka passes her, Chakvetadze, Hantuchova and Bartoli have zero to virtually zero chance to gain points the rest of the season, and by simply taking off their YEC points from last year, they drop below Flavia.

(playing Quebec could save them, and I'm too lazy to check whether any of them will. I guess not)

Wozniacki has finally finished her season too ( :weirdo: ) so I thought I'd calculate what everyone within 500 points of Flavia (+#10 Radwanska:p) had to defend in Australia:

10 Agnieszka Radwanska 2286 – 250 (AO 250)
11 Nadia Petrova 1976 – 140 (AO 140)
12 Caroline Wozniacki 1713 – 140 (AO 140)
13 Flavia Pennetta 1670 – 110 (AO 60, Hobart 50)
14 Patty Schnyder 1590 – 125 (Gold Coast 65, AO 60)
15 Victoria Azarenka 1494 – 190 (Gold Coast 100, AO 90)
16 Alize Cornet 1492 – 60 (AO 60)
17 Marion Bartoli 1410 – 2 (AO 2)
18 Anna Chakvetadze 1363 – 90 (AO 90)
19 Dominika Cibulkova 1337 – 2 (AO 2)
20 Katarina Srebotnik 1272 – 90 (AO 90)
21 Daniela Hantuchova 1192 – 485 (AO 450, Sydney 35)

But then I realised that next year only the best 16 tournaments count, instead of best 17. So I took everyone's 17th result off their ranking (I assume that's how it's done), and calculated again:

10 Agnieszka Radwanska 2236 – 250 (AO 250)
11 Nadia Petrova 1941 – 140 (AO 140)
12 Caroline Wozniacki 1665 – 140 (AO 140)
13 Flavia Pennetta 1635 – 110 (AO 60, Hobart 50)
14 Patty Schnyder 1562 – 125 (Gold Coast 65, AO 60)
15 Alize Cornet 1491 – 60 (AO 60)
16 Victoria Azarenka 1474 – 190 (Gold Coast 100, AO 90)
17 Marion Bartoli 1370 – 2 (AO 2)
18 Anna Chakvetadze 1362 – 90 (AO 90)
19 Dominika Cibulkova 1302 – 2 (AO2)
20 Katarina Srebotnik 1237 – 90 (AO 90)
21 Daniela Hantuchova 1191 – 485 (AO 450, Sydney 35)

So Flavia is actually one of the few players with more than 100 points to defend, and one of few players to have points to defend in 2 tournaments.
However, losing Hobart points is not so bad, she'll lose only 15 points there (her 17th result is 35 points)

Fantasy Hero
Nov 23rd, 2008, 01:01 PM

And I calculated the points to defend until RG for the players between 9-20.

9. Nadia Petrova 3762 – 2 (Miami 2)
10. Victoria Azarenka 3760 – 880 (Berlin 390, Prague 160, Rome 120, Charleston 120, Miami 90)
11. Agnieszka Radwanska 3468 – 522 (Istanbul 280, Rome 120, Berlin 120, Miami 2)
12. Caroline Wozniacki 3320 – 260 (Miami 140, Rome 120)
13. Marion Bartoli 3221 – 362 (Rome 120, Berlin 120, Charleston 120, Miami 2)
14. Alize Cornet 3061 – 1272 (Rome 630, Charleston 390, Amelia Island 250, Miami 2)
15. Flavia Pennetta 3050 – 90 (Miami 90)
16. Dominika Cibulkova 2685 – 540 (Amelia Island 380, Miami 90, Rome 70)
17. Jie Zheng 2501 – 142 (Miami 140, Rome 2)
18. Patty Schnyder 2497 – 610 (Rome 220, Charleston 220, Miami 90, Stuttgart 80)
19. Kaia Kanepi – 2330 – 240 (Miami 140, Berlin 100)
20. Amelie Mauresmo 2304 – 230 (Amelia Island 140, Miami 90)


I almost feel sorry for Cornet:tape::lol:

All of these will gain points too of course, so Flavia will still need a rocking clay season to move up.

I'm bored today :p
Was almost a year since I updated this - she lost about 800 points in that time:sad:

On the plus side: no silly top20-restrictions for 2011.

Flavia improved by 9 positions :yeah: . Now Paris will drop off. Does anyone know what her 17th tournament is? I think it is Dubai. Would be an interesting constellation before Doha.

Dubai or Montreal - both are 125 points.
So she loses 75 points by not playing this week.
Next week Dubai comes off, and if she doesn't defend her 3rd round there, it will be replaced by 120 points from Sydney, so that's not too bad.

Thanks Willy. ;) A Top 20 finish, after having the injury for a large part of the season, is a pretty good finish methinks. ;)

This may be, and probably is, highly irrelevant, but for the first time in a year or so - just on a whim - I went through the WTA top 100 list. Man, is it SCARYYYYYY. What is happening to women's tennis????

My very own Lena Daniilidou is officially ranked higher than Venus Williams, Johanna Larsson and Greta Arn....@ no. 67 and @ 30 years old. Okkkk......I'm totally happy for her, but it does show that there's very little coming through.

Alize Cornet, former wonder-woman etc. etc., best thing ever in the Juniors bla bla bla has just made it to 100, from 107. NOT good.

The list also contains people I've never heard of. Although there's nothing new there, really, WHO IS Jamie Hampton? And how on earth can she be ranked higher than Arantxa Rus, who got to a major R3 at RG last year? Also, how is it that Mattek-Sands is ranked lower than Mandy Minella? and whoever Jamie Hampton is?? I mean, since when is Mandy Minella a top 100 tennis player???

Even in MM tournaments, I've never seen some of these people on the list. So, what are they doing to get points??? Baffles me...

Also, major injustice, I know she's carrying her QF points from the USO, but Sara should be ranked higher than Flavia at the minute...

Zamboni

:lol: Chris, you just need to follow tennis more :angel:

Eleni has been doing well in smaller WTA tournaments and bigger challengers, especially last fall.
Alize Cornet has been in a HUUUUGE, yearslong slump which she is only now breaking out.
Jampie Hampton is having a good year, she made quite a run at Indian Wells, which of course really helps.
Arantxa Rus has sucked for ages now, her RG 3rd round is pretty much all she has (oh hey, sounds familiar, Gise?)
Mattek has been injured and hasn't played for a long time.
Minella has been getting some good results as well.


Flavia and Sara both have GS qf points, but Flavia simply has more "other" results.
Flavia's mandatory results: 1285 points
Sara's mandatory results: 800
Flavia's other results on her ranking: 870
Sara's other results on her ranking: 1100

It's mostly her SF in Beijing that saves Flavia there ;)


I do agree with you that there's very little coming through. Or at least, there are no spectacular breakthroughs, players grow gradually and by the time they are, say, top20, it feels like they have been around forever.

Except it's not. Flavia started the year great last year, and didn't start getting early losses till she got injured in Indian Wells.
"All her early exits that she defended" is only Miami. She didn't play between Miami and Rome last year.

^ Thx for the update Lin. Just been going through some past tournament results, I have followed Eleni D., but that's about it... The only thing I know about Mandy Minella for example is that she dated Marcos Baghdatis! I've also been on Jamie Hampton's wiki page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Hampton) and there is no mention of her doing anything, and the article is v. recent. Seriously, I've NEVER heard of her.

She's down to #9 on the road to Singapur though. I am not sure she can make it TBH... She should definitely play two grass court tournaments, but I only saw her entered into one event.

Fantasy Hero

well her hope is to make it to the second week of RG, then a week to prepare grass and then Eastbourne-Wimbly...

I think she can qualify, but she will need a massive effort during the american summer and be decent in the fall
