I don't know what will happen there, when she won it, it was an international.
I think that means she's still only defending 280 points.

Wozniacki's 16th best result is equivalent to a premier final (320)
Petra's is 100 points (which will be her next best, after YEC)
Masha doesn't have one
Vika's is around 120 (again, the 17th after YEC)

So odds are the 2 premiers wont change the rankings at the top much, should be a very tight race

After the AO this year, Caro won Dubai.
So she has a lot of points coming off.
I dont see her holding #1 for 51 weeks in 2012.
But she might make a strong run for a YE #1 threepeat

Yeah IT a Huge Chance Caro will lose her number 1 rank spot for sure I saying that as a fan. But I remember the beginning of this year I thought She going lose it to Kim, Vera, or Maria and she prove me wrong so I not going be quick to talk. If anybody be number 1 It be Queen S. Petra gotta alot point to defend around clay season and wimby and those couple event she won at the beginning of the year, as well. Same for Maria she got point to defend right around IW, Miami & Clay season, FO & Wimby and so on. Vika to me gotta go chance to gain alot points she do defend really alot point till Miami. Li Na Got those GS But the Form she in :help:. Aggie could gain alot point as well during beginning. & Vera she just got the AO, Doha & Miami it she could defend that she should be good. Serena it all about gaining so really 2012 going be the year watch we might have couple World number 1

what are you guys on about, there are 470 points going up for grabs now sydney will be a MM. you can bet your bottom dollar caro will be playing it especially seen as serena, kim and sam will be in brisbane.

the only top players likely to play sydney or take it seriously are caro, vera and aga, the vulture pack.

that 470 point will cushion her standard poor showing at the oz open.

If she wins Sydney, she will only get 150 points, due to her '320' 16th best result.

Yeah like Alex says Kvitova is playing Hopman Cup along with Woz and Na Li. I think all of them will play Sydney the week after though.

Sam has maybe 100 points at stake for the entire Aussie swing, so she could add a fair bit to her tally with any luck.

Hope Na Li appreciates the next few months at #5 as she's got a shedload of January points to lose.

Yes, another Karolina thread.

These are the ranking points with Australian Open taken off:

1. Caroline Wozniacki: 6585
2. Petra Kvitova: 6420 (+ potential 450 points = 6870)
3. Victoria Azarenka: 6260 (+ potential 450 points = 6710)
4. Maria Sharapova: 6250

Australian open is looking very interesting.


3. Victoria Azarenka: 6240 (+ potential 450 points = 6690)
Sharapova would be 6510-280=6230 instead of 6250 ?

Don't be delusional, kid. Serena isn't a shoe-in for the AO or Wimbledon anymore like she used to be. She could reclaim the #1 ranking but it's not as "NID" as some of you guys are expecting. Petra has already proven herself to be a formidable force next year and I expect a few more players to raise their games a few levels, too.

Can't see Petra winning the US Open or the Aussie Open (unless they put the cover on for all her matches ;) ) but yes, RG, Wimbledon, The Olympics and The YEC are all absolutely within her reach so 4 of 6 major titles is asking a hell of a lot but it is not entirely out of the question.

12 titles however does seems a stretch as she probably won't play more than 9 or so tournaments that are not on outdoor hard. of those 9 non outdoor hard surely she will lose a couple so that would probably be asking her to win 5 tournaments on outdoor hard and that won't happen. If she wins any more than 2 outdoor hard events I would be surprised, especially as she won't be playing Brisbane again next year.

Very unlikely that Rad could take over #1 :lol:, because everyone else would have to flame out, Kvitty and Wozniacki in the 1st round and before R16, which, come to think of it, are not all that unlikely :haha:. Would that be the biggest jump in rankings (from #8 to #1 )to get to no. 1 after a single tournament?

If Radwanska became #1 by winning a slam you'd have problems with that? It's not going to happen even if she did win AO, there's no way almost all top 5 players will tank AO.

P.U.K.E at the idea of Azarenka or Radwanska getting to number 1.

Probably then you need to stop drinking alcohol or psychoactive substances that generates physiological effects such as vomiting etc... :)

Changes like that are almost similar to effects of entheogen substances like LSD, Lysergic acid diethylamide (probably you know what I'm speaking about), you'll get some few bad perceptions and twisted interpretations about her at first -- you'll have some HPPD (Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder) like "flash backs" because she's so good, that good but contrary to the synthetic substance, with Victoria you'll never have a "bad trip", she doesn't harm, she's perfect in all ways and extremely talented. :)

It's hard to resist to her invitation and probably the reasons she pulls out her tongue as a visual form of brainstorming, take your impregnated "blotters" and have the trip. Dude. Pressed. Troll. :)

This. People are always going to complain as long as their own favourite isn't #1. Petra is already getting criticism on here as a potential #1 despite having a Slam and most importantly, not even getting to the top spot yet!

It's easier to attack Woz since she is Slamless, but I'm sure people will find plenty of reasons to dog on Petra or Vika or whoever manages to get there, just because their favourite isn't #1.

It's also worth noting that if any of the top 4 win AO they will automatically be No.1 (Maria must take out Petra in the SF meaning Petra can't have F points if Maria wins)

Vika has a really good draw to SF (compensating for her unfortunate USO draw). That'd be a 620 points improvement on last year. And if Caro doesn't make it past QF (Li/Kim), Vika will pass her in the rankings.

Your early in this thread prediction of the only ones taking sydney seriously would be the so called "vulture pack" Well going by the one's busting their asses to win it you had better add a lot more members to your imaginary vulture pack, there seemed to be some hogs and jackals busting their guts too!

vika may well start playing as many premiers as possible soon now she is edging ever closer to number 1, i expect her to go all out to get it if she gets close. aga and caro killed each other chances with that stupidly long match.

no one was predicting li na to hit form, but good on her she really needed to with lots of points to defend.

seriously what a stupid thing to say. i didn't say it would be sad if huber was number 1 in singles, which is a different discipline of the sport which is how you compared things.

if you wanna compare it would be like the olympic gold medalist being 2nd rate to some runner who wins local meets.

Vika's new year resolutions included her defending her titles and be #1, nothing about slams or the olympics so she probably think those do not go hand in hand.
