My opinion is...becasue PAW has so many players, maybe we can make it to TOP 16 or even TOP 20 ?

I understand how the players who miss out would feel. But I thought modelling the WTA would make PAW more exciting and challenging. I could make it top 16, but we'll wait and see what others think, ok?

I agree with Top-20 can play in LA, but only top-8 in final league can get ranking points. This is more challenging than only top-8 which automatically all players can get big ranking pts.
For top-20 players, they don't need little pts like from Pataya (Tier V) as alternative tournament to add his/her ranking pts.

That wouldn't work because that means coming in 8th gets around 60 pts, and coming in 9th, gets zero.

If we were to let more players in, I think TOP 16 is the best idea, and that actually guarentees everyone ranking points (like real WTA Champs last year).

Similar with last year 16th get 37 and 17th get zero.
I think Top-16 is ok, if any player withdrew can replaced by followed rank player.

Thanks for including all the countries sandg :wavey: :)

This week is the last week until the top 16 contestants are decided. But remember from that list ajayares, VeNuS FoReVeR and duki are not entering (unless they make a commitment during the week).

So far, the top 10 spots are secured.

Well, you have to worry about the players ranked below you...

Firstly #15 K&J Fan is having a solid week yet again in Philadelphia and since his/her 18th tourney is only 4 pts, he/she is likely to get points this week...

Behind K&J fan is butch, who is having a very promising week in Philly, and will probably end up overtaking K&J fan, yourself and maybe even WTA Handicapper, Grice & Pintaled, if he/she claims 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

Then there's #17 VeNuS FoReVeR, who has NOT committed and so is ineligitable to play.

Futher down...#18 bionic71 will probably finish around 10-30th position, and since his 18th tourney is 20 points, he won't be adding that much to his total.

Generally I think you are secured only just:

As you can see, I predicted K&J fan and butch to pass you, and that means you will be the 15th position (remember ajayaras isn't in) :wavey:

How exactly is this ranking calculated? Is it best 17 or best 18?

Anyway, according to my calculation, yucky is the lowest player with mathematical chance to make the cut, since those further down can't overtake bionic71 even with 195 pts for win in Philly.
So, there are 13 contenders for 7 vacant places (excluding the 3 who apparently withdrew).

Yes, however if you look at the league table in Philly, of those 13 contenders, only bionic71, butch & Pintaled have a chance of gaining those 195 points. Unfortunately yucky won't be winning this week, thus eliminating him/her from the race.

But what about my question?
Is it best-17 or best-18 or what?
Which score should be dropped for the next ranking?
I want to see who need what to qualify on the final day in Philly and Quebec...

SpikeyAidanm
Nov 2nd, 2003, 12:38 AM
Best 18, but this is a race (like Sanex WTA Race), so no points are dropped.

nitsansh
Nov 2nd, 2003, 12:45 AM
Actually, it looks like no one of those ranked outside the cut-off line is capable of climbing up. The highest ranked of those in Philly is aussie_stars in 18th place, and I can't see how he can gain even 54 pts to tie bionic71, not to mention that the latter will surely score some points... so it's over IMO, and all those above the cut-off line have qualified to LA... don't you think so?

What do you mean the cut-off line: confused:

Can you publish a list of the players you reckon have qualified?

No points dropped from last year, of course, but the 18th best result goes out if the new result is better...

However you make the calculation... all those below bionic71 are now out of LA... welcome to Pattaya aussie_stars, Elisse, YoungProfessor, marcobarella... (silent140, yucky - if you want to play, you need to post a commitment...)

The cut-off is the line which seperate between those who qualified and those who didn't...
There should be 16 qualifyers, but if you exclude players ranked #4 and #17, who "withdrew", the last place that qualifies is #18.
If no one below the player in 18th place has a chance to catch him, as I believe is the case, than all those down to 18th have qualified.
But wait till the semifinals are completed to make it official...

It is mathematically possible that aussie_stars can beat bionic71.

Iff:

Petrova def Myskina

And:

aussie_stars picks the finalist who wins.

The question, is how many places can aussie_stars perhaps finish ahead of bionic71?

He/she will need to compile 54 or more points extra that bionic71 this week, to secure their spot.
