Whoops! I see you've spotted the error too. I'll go and delete my thread. :)

Beating Serena and venus are worth more
ONLY in the tournaments when they have used their special seeding
WTA messed up with Stanford as well
This weeks points ARE 396
Last weeks should have been282

Beating Serena 75 not 35
and venus 66 not 35

The problem is the WTA events don't do it consistently. Not every tournament awards the special seeding points to players who beat Venus or Serena. This is the first time either of them have been allocated points based on their special seeding since the Australian Open when Lisa Raymond beat Venus and walked away with 132 bonus points. But I guess the mystery is solved.

I read on another thread she got 100 points for beating Serena and 66 for Venus? :shrug:

I think the boiled egg posted it.
