The calender was shifted from last year - it's been like that since the beginning. That is why everyone was talking about how Tokyo Pan Pacific points were coming off with the Australian Open points. Likewise, that was why people were saying Venus was going to be without a title for a full year before she ever had a chance to defend Antwerp - because Antwerp came off with last week's rankings.
The ranking system is based on a 52-week system, not on where the tournaments fall the following year.
