why does JJ overtake Sharapova next week. Doesn't she lose more poitns than maria cause she is the defending champion in Birmingham?

Oly the 17 best rankings points are counted. JJ's 18th best tournament is 100 points so basically she's losing 140 but replaced by 100, in the end she only loses 40 points.

Sharapova has less than 17 tourny so her 100 points are not replaced

That's why JJ will have more points that Masha ;)

I think thats now a pretty good number for someone who prefers to play matches that practice for hours on end every day.

She'll have only 22 after Hertogenbosch :eek:, she really cut those tourneys down! (but she'll be back to #3 then)
