....get Linz and Lux, but the next weeks rankings should be Quebec and then the week after Doha?
Why?


IF the WTA say, want fresh start for Doha (??) then why not Quebec too?

Quebec is coming off as Nadia has 350 pts to defend as she won in 2008.

Quebec is not coming off
other points from Nov 03 arent coming off, its just Doha

Nadia's losing pts from
Linz 140
and YEC DOha 210

doing this so RACE = Rank at end of regular season............. but that doesnt explain why Quebec is still on :o ?
( so i guess next yr they will also take Bali off 2 weeks early )

Simplicity.

the WTA :smash:

they are dropping points from Doha 2008 (along with Linz 2008 and Luxembourg 2008) this week ... this is very strange for rankings :mad:

Venus does not have chance to defend her YEC title and drops to #7 :sad:

after Serena's 2 week run at SE WTA #1, she is replace again by Goatfina :help:

for doing nothing, Pushniacki goes to career high SE WTA #4 (because she had no points to defend from Doha 2008)

for doing nothing, Azarenka goes to career high SE WTA #6 (because she had no points to defend from Doha 2008)

Ana Ivanovic out of top 20 :wavey:

At Doha 2009, the top 4 seeds will be 1)Safina, 2) Serena, 3) Kuznetsova and 4) Pushniacki ... so can have one group with Safina and Pushniacki :spit:
"Pushniacki" :spit:

Very, very bad move by the WTA.

Sveta always played well at the end of the season, but sucked at the YEC. I think both have a good shot at #3. ;)
I like that Sveta can't draw Caro in RR. :)

I suppose in their defense, the WTA have a reasonable case

At least the seeds for the year end finals will be based on the 2009 results only.

This does make sense
Agree.
But it would be the same if they took Race ranking.

Leave na-goat alone - he's always copping flak. He's the only reason this forum is still going.... OK maybe I'm exaggerating. ;)

Now that Ana is out of top 20, I think there's a bit more common sense. She's really had a dismal year.

I'm not the biggest fan of Wozniacki but she definitely deserves a higher ranking than Azarenka, who really hasn't done anything spectacular since mid-year. On the other hand, Wozniacki has made a grand slam final among other things.

WIERD WIERD WIERD move by the wta. I really don┤t get it... :o

No offense to all the Wozniacki fans but seeing her at #4 is just... :weirdo:. I think we can all agree it's way way too soon for that to happen. The same with azarenka at #6.

I seriously hope kim,maria and justine pick up the order quickly next year. In my oppinion the following players are overranked right now: Azarenka, Wozniacki, Pennetta, Radwanska and Jankovic. To what we've seen from them in results and in quality form they are just too high ranked right now.

But apparently WTA doesn't care about sentimentals anymore, as well as a 52-week system. Career high # gets screwed over by this incredibly, as well as YEC seedings. Seriously, what kind of IDIOTS do they employ there.

It is WTA fault ... they should have players lose last year's YEC points in the same week as this year's YEC :tape:

Imagine in this year's YEC the final is Venus v Dementieva ... then Caro never would have become #4

So basically Caro just got #4 as a gift due to WTA policy :help:

And while I understand your point, it's not like there are players doing so much better than Wozniacki, Radwanska, Pennetta or Jankovic... everyone's sucking right now.

I think it's just because i'm majorly disappointed with the tour the whole year round.
I didn┤t put in safina because she at least won a mandatory, premier5 and reached 2 slamfinals+ 1 semifinal. I can at least understand that she has a top2 position looking at those results and of others this year. She definetly hasn't shown many quality since wimbledon, but neither has serena, her main competitor. There it's definetly a matter of having no leader on the tour, no one is stepping it up anymore. I mean, looking at serena's results besides the slamwins you can't really say she's been a #1 either. #1 players were winning at least 5 titles a year consistently.

With the other players, for example jankovic, i feel like she has done nothing this year and yet she's still holding on to top8 in the race.

Zvonereva, who has been absolutely dreadful after her injury still is hanging on to the top8. She was playing great at the start, but that that held her on to the top9 in the race even right now is amazing. While normally, that would have never happened.

Pennetta to me, doesn't have the game of a top10 player but benefitted from everyone else sucking.

I think the perfect example to take is Radwanska. To me, these are players who are reaching their career high with mediocre results. For example look at radwanska's results when she reached #9 in the top10 a year ago compared to now, what a difference. :eek: And besides this, i think most of us can agree she actually played much better then she's doing right now... which is shocking.

Radwanska '07/'08 Ranking:#9(august2007-august2008)
Grandslams:
QF R4 QF R4
1 tier2
2 tier3
6 top10 wins
5 top20 wins
Majority of her losses were against top10 players.

Radwanska '08/'09 Ranking: #10(oktober2008-oktober2009)
Grandslams:
R1 R4 QF R2
-
3 top10 wins
5 top20 wins
Most of her losses were against players ranked outside top20.

Basically she has performed way worse, yet is in almost the same position she was a year ago. :o

If they achieve something great i can at least be happy for them, now i'm just sad there isn't better tennis out there.

The Wozniacki case, is in that sence special. She DID achieve the results a top4 player needs to get to that position, whether we all like it or not. She's had good results, but the way she got them is disappointing to me. 'Whoring tournaments', Can anyone honestly say she's shown the topquality of a winner anywhere this season? I feel like any top5 player in history has had a moment where they were absolutely the best out there and delivering top quality to win somewhere, while no one could beat them at that time. Yet wozniacki didn't even come close to that for me...
anywhere, to me, she's looked beatable. And it's a shame we didn't have anyone step it up enough to prevent lower quality from entering the top4.

In that sence, 2009 is even much much worse then 2008, which was for us, already a dreadful year.

She only dropped to #7, and it's doubtful she will be going down either much further from there. Stanford.

Oct 19th, 2009, 05:03 PM
I think a lot of players would have struggled with Vika's draws since Wimbledon. In 4 out of the 6 tournaments she's played since Wimby she's had Masha twice in R2, Clijsters in R2 and JJ in R3 so it's not like she's been losing regularly to players she should have been expected to beat comfortably in this period which would indicate a proper slump. It's true her level of play has dropped a bit from what it was but those losses are hardly inexplicable ones.

The only places she's had a remotely good draw since then was at Tokyo where she lost narrowly to Li Na in the QF and USO where she lost to Fran in the 3R where she should've at least made the 4R or QF.

This weeks Race = Next weeks normal Ranking.

The Race List of 18. October:

1 Safina, Dinara RUS 7652 17
2 Williams, Serena USA 7437 16
3 Kuznetsova, Svetlana RUS 5772 18
4 Wozniacki, Caroline DEN 5465 23 (+ what she may add in Lux.b)
5 Dementieva, Elena RUS 5415 19
6 Azarenka, Victoria BLR 4451 16
7 Williams, Venus USA 4397 16

The points show what they have been doing so far in 2009, next year Caro may drop as she can't add so many points from MM's, she will likely play 18-22 tournaments only.

Vika may not been staying so high as she also had MM wins this year.

But nobody in the TOP 10 has been doing so great in the last tournaments other than Slams, next year we'll see Kim, Justine and Masha in Top 10, but who will go out?

Shows you what's happened to women's tennis sicne 2005! As much as I would like to agree with the Pushniacki's out there... Caro plays a very simple and clean game. She does push many of her opponents off the court. She's won more matches than any other player, she's played in like 1000 tournaments, etc. She deserves the high rank. She'll have a tough time next year defending the ranking though. I think she should stay top 10, but she might tumble a bit.

Ivanovic out of top 20!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG

Also 1 and 2 defend a lot of points in January, so the race for #1 might involve 3 or 4 players coming out of Australia.

I The Wozniacki case, is in that sence special. She DID achieve the results a top4 player needs to get to that position, whether we all like it or not.

Did she?
Well, by 2009 standards she did. But she bombed out early at 3/4 slams, she didn't win a single tier I title, she scored only four top-10 wins. Don't you expect better results from a top-4 player?

Caroline is 1-1 against Kuznetsova this year and 2-1 (3-1 if you count exhibition) against Dementieva so it's not that unfair that she's right between them in the rankings is it? She's had lots of great results this year :cool:

1 grandslam final (I love rubbing this one in your face because I know you hate it)
1 premier mandatory final
3 (or 4) premier mandatory quarterfinals
2 premier title wins
1 premier final
1 international title win


Meanwhile the #1 managed to lose to a player ranked outside the top 100.

What is a premier 5 final you always talk about? And which "3 (or 4)" premier mandatory QFs did Wozniacki reach?
As usual, you are living in the imaginary world where your fave is a worthy player.

I didn't write Premier 5.

Great, that means Caroline is almost in top 3.

What?Dina will back to #1?It's a joke or not?:rolleyes::scared:

Shitzniacki at # 4 :tape::help:
Maria, Kim and Justine, hurry up! :armed:

And you are apparently living in your imaginary world where Caro isn't a worthy player.

Good point :lol:

But being a fan of the most overrated tennis player in history of this sport must be very frustrating :sad:

Race does = Ranks (started from this yr)
Race based on best of 16 just like Ranks are.

I think all the accumulated points in the current year count toward the Sony Ericsson Championships points race.

TheBoiledEgg is absolutely correct. (Oct 24,2009)

WHO PARTICIPATES IN THEM?
Players accumulate points in the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour tournaments during the year, and at the end of the season only the Top 8 singles players participate in the Sony Ericsson Championships. The doubles component of the Sony Ericsson Championships was played by the four best teams of the season.http://www.sonyericsson-championships.com/page/FAQ/0,,12910,00.html

Did she?
Well, by 2009 standards she did. But she bombed out early at 3/4 slams, she didn't win a single tier I title, she scored only four top-10 wins. Don't you expect better results from a top-4 player?

I do expect better results, and at first i wanted to even post that she didn't get the results at all until i did some research towards other career high #4 players. :o

If you're interested look up the 52-week seasons that got them to #4. They're actually not that different from Wozniacki. Although 1 of the reasons might be that the top3 was much stronger then and accumilating way more points making it harder for the #4 ranked players to compete...

But look at dokic, huber or date's season for instance when she reached no.4... it isn't that different in results. I was surprised as well she's right there with them..

Mostly, I am forced to conclude that I support two idiots (Lena D. and Venus) and two squirrelly lucksters (Caro and Vika). Where this leaves TOB and Big Al Glatch, I'm not sure.

But if you'd told me at the start of the year I was going to have two of my Big Three and two of my Little Three (and thus fully 2/3 of the LOB) in the Top 10, I'd have been almost as excited as if Lena had grown back her bangs.

We can't compare Wozniacki to Date and Huber: way too different ranking systems. I do agree about Dokic though.
