I thought I'd add a ranking thread. Sorry if there's already one but I couldn't find it. I figured it's easiest to have a dedicated one because I'm always searching or trying to remember which thread we last discussed her ranking.

Anyhow, Sammy's dropped to 2 in doubles. :(

I'm confused (nothing new there) about why she's dropped to Number 2 when she still has the same amount of points as Lisa? Is that because Lisa has played an extra tournament? Samopedia?

Also, to clarify - Fed Cup doesn't affect rankings in any way does it?

She has also dropped to number 28 in singles!! I think she should start playing some lower tiers and hopefully win them!!! I wish she had played Prague!!!!!

well at least sammy & lisa will still be the world no.1 doubles team :)
and just to let you know, sammy has dropped one place down in the singles ranking from No.27 to No.28

and fed cup doesn't affect the rankings in anyway what so ever as you don't earn any rank pts individually. and yes sammy has dropped to No.2 in dubs cause sammy played AI dubs last year & this year she didn't so her tournament count dropped.

It must be such a hard choice for her deciding the best way to move forward.

Obviously, she has to sacrifice some doubles rankings/tournaments in order to go higher in singles but even though I hate to say it, I wonder if she's ready?

I agree that she should play some more lower tiered tournies to try to get points because she's not having a lot of luck right now. I'd hate to see her drop too far in doubles. Ahhhh, why can't her game just fall into place?

Realistically, do you think she can break the Top 20 this year? If you look at the players in the top 20 right now, it's killer competition.

I dunno top 20 is crowded with top notch players right now i think in 2008 her game will fall into place!!! And she will break top 20!!! Do yu guys ever think she will reach top ten??? I am really annoyed about that article!!! Give her a break!!!! Do you reckon it is true????

I hate saying it but I'm not sure about Top 20 this year. If she isn't at least pushing some of the players to 3 sets, I dunno if the game is there YET. It will be I'm sure of that, but when I don't know. I'm not a player (unless you count Sunday arvo social at my club, hehe) and I'm not a coach so I can't say.

I guess it's a matter of transferring from a doubles mindset to singles. Sammy's groundstrokes need some more work in her singles games and coming to the net all the time won't work in singles anymore.

And nope, I reckon its total crap. It made me furious, bloody idiots.

Sam moved up one to 28... I think she should aim for top 25 by years end and in 2008 got for top 20!! She has heaps of points to defend soon!

Well sam's ranking is gonna go drop out of the top 30 by not defending her stanford pts from last year. at this point sam might even struggle to defend her New Haven pts from last year (i hope she doesn't) so the best i can hope for is that she finishes within the top 50.

Oh Crap!! Will she still be seeded for US Open? Stupid sickness!!

And she has Tier 1 Linz quartefinal points to defend :(

I added up all the points she has to defend from the US Open series and even if she doesnt defend any based on the current rankings she would be ranked 35.. And some people would withdraw and I expect her to win some matches so hopefully she will still be seeded! It would be great if she could defend New Haven..

Sadly, she will be out of the top 30 aoon and i expect that to last for the rest of the year at least, she's going to have to try and limit the damage with defending all her points. A 3rd round effort at the us open would help.
