Hi,
Just a question about bonus point...
Supposing that Amelie-melo beats Jelena (seeded 3), will she get the bonus points of beating number 4 in the world (Jelena's rank when the commitments were made)?
And if she beats Lindsay? Will she get the bonus points of beating n°3 in the world - according to her special ranking?
Thanx in advance...

You get bonus points for the persons CURRENT rank, not thir commitment rank.

Isn't this shocking?
I mean, Lindsay is enjoying her 2001 ranking privileges but the player that beats her don't get a lot of points... whereas Amelie is n° 4 in the world and she doesn't have any bye...
Hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

I think it'll do Amelie good to play an extra match. I'm glad she doesn't have a bye.

What if the world #1 withdraws midway thru a match... lets say she was leading 6-0, 3-0 when she twisted an ankle or something... will the lower ranked opponent get the 100 bonus points even though she didn't win a game? If so its unfair!

Yes. And Yes. But this are the rules. And most of the time, they work just fine.

Thanks for clearing that, Maya,

Unfortunately if this ever happens, some girl will have an unnecessarily high ranking for an entire year!

If it does happen, i hope the one who benefits is from among my favourites ;)

danielrosaria....unnecessarily high ranking... if you get 100 points...you are not really into the top 20 yet you know ;)

Of course she will be higher..but 100 points is not THAT much
