KIM CLIJSTERS 2809 (which puts her at 5th place, 9 points ahead of Dokic and 14 pts ahead of Monica
DANIELA HANTUCHOVA 2529.75 (one more win will put her ahead of Davenport who would fall to tenth in the world. Lindsay has 2588 currently)
ELENA DEMENTIEVA 1397 (still just two points behind Smashnova putting her at #17)

How do you get 2809 points for Kim?
I get 2779, from Kim winning 181 points this week. So 181 plus 2618 = 2799:confused:

tenniscorner.net said that Kim had 2722 pts after upon entering the quarterfinal round. She got 44 pts for the win and 43 for beating Lindsay.
2722 + 44 + 43 = 2809. Maybe there is a problem with tenniscorner. net but usually it is very reliable. :D

Also tenniscorner.net had Kim with 105pts for this tournament already when going into the quarters. Remember she had beaten Myskina and Majoli.
105 pts. + 87 for today's win = 192 pts so far for this tourney.
2618 + 192 = 2810 - 1 pt for the 17th best tournament which just pushed down to 18th best = 2809.
Hope that clears it up for you.

The differences in calculation come from the point tables. Some consider Filderstadt as a 585 000 dollar tournie, others as a 650 000 dollar tournie... Altough its prizemoney lies closer to the 650, I'm not sure which points are given.

It's a high tier II, so I think the points for 650 000 $ are given

I hope Hantuchova will loose, Obviously I'm Lindsay's fan :)

Go Dani! win this tourney and prove that you should be in the top ten
Oct 12th, 2002, 11:02 AM
verve is right that is how the difference came about I was using points for $585,000 tournie not a $650,000 tournie as I thought to use points for a $650,000 tournie the prizemoney had to be at least that amount and Filderstadt isn't. But I was probably wrong.

the points for Filderstadt are as for a normal Tier II event but the Prize Money is $625K
so the lower points are awarded here
going from 1st rd thru to winner 1-25-49-88-137-195
