Up by almost 100 points compared to pre-Eastbourne :D The extra 30 points from Wimbledon keeps her where she is ATM in the rankings, but hopefully when points are updated some of the people above her will have lost enough to go down.

Here's a list of how many points players ranked #11-#16 have to gain more than Caro does for the rest of the year in order to stay ahead of Caro in the rankings. I got these #s by taking the difference in current ranking points for this week and subtracting the different in points to defend for the rest of the year.


#16 Pennetta 143
#15 Azarenka 135
#14 Bartoli 293
#13 Chakvetadze 111
#12 Schnyder -29
#11 Hantuchova 491


The -29 means that Caro must gain 29 more points than Patty does for the rest of the year in order to pass her in the rankings.

So far this year Caro has gained more points (YEC race) than all those players except Patty, gained more points per tournament (YEC race) than all those players, and has a higher winning % for the year than all those players.

There are three players behind Caro who seem to have a shot at possibly passing her in the rankings: Cornet, Petrova, and Cibulkova.


#18 Cornet 88
#20 Petrova 238
#21 Cibulkova 286


Both Cornet and Petrova have only 13 results really counted in their best 17 results (they have four 1 point results included). So they can add points from 4 tournaments without having to earn more points than their 17th best result to gain in gain in their overall ranking points.

So far this year Caro has gained more points (YEC race) than all 3 players, gained more points per tournament (YEC race) than all 3 players, and has a higher winning % than all 3 players.

#19 Vaidisova and #22 Szavay are slumping and have a lot of points to defend anwyay. Everybody else needs to outgain Caro by at least 350 points for the rest of the season which seems unlikely.

Caro is 10th in YEC race points per tournament after Miami. For comparison, Caro ended last year at 13th in the YEC and 13th in YEC race points per tournament, 1 below her season ending ranking of 12. It should be kept in mind that if Sharapova had been playing she'd almost certainly have more YEC race points and more YEC race points per tournament.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 120 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at a tournament in order to increase her ranking points.

Caro has won 72% (18-7) of her matches of her matches as of the end of Miami. She's won 74% (20-7) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Azarenka and Mayr).

Caro has the 10th best winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only as of the end of Miami. She's 9th if you count only players ranked inside the top 30 or the YEC race top 30. Caro has the 6th best winning % for the year for top 30 ranked players or the YEC race top 30 as of the end of Miami if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.

Caro is 10th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after the French Open. For comparison, Caro was 13th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 last year, 1 below her year end ranking of 12. The Wta now includes 0 point results in the YEC race so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 140 points points, so Caro has to earn more than that at a tournament in order to increase her ranking points.

Caro has won 76% (37-12) of her matches as of the end of the French Open. She's won 76% (39-12) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Azarenka and Mayr).

Caro has the 10th best winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only as of the end of the French Open. She's 8th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50 or the YEC race top 50. Caro has the 8th best winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players or the YEC race top 50 as of the end of the French Open if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.


(I modified the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after Birmingham to exclude that week's matches as the Wta never uploaded the same file after the French Open. I also corrected the order to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

Here's a list of points players ranked #5-20 have to defend after the French Open. The first # in parenthesis indicates the player's 16th best result, which is the amount of points a player has to earn more than at a tournament to actually increase their ranking points (assuming they're not defending points and it's not a mandatory tournament). The 2nd # in parenthesis, if there is one, indicates the # of non 1 point results in a player's "best 16" ranking. No 2nd parenthesis means that none of the results in a player's "best 16" ranking are 1 point results.


5 Kuznetsova 2090 (120 points)
6 Jankovic 4390 (220 points)
7 Zvonareva 2900 (280 points)
8 Azarenka 1506 (60 points)

9 Caro 2060 (140 points)

10 Petrova 3160 (140 points)
11 Aga Radwanska 2170 (120 points)
12 Bartoli 1870 (120 points)
13 Ivanovic 1570 (70 points) (15 results)
14 Cibulkova 1500 (70 points)
15 Pennetta 1960 (100 points)
16 Zheng 1556 (30 points) (15 results)
17 Mauresmo 1110 (70 points) (14 results)
18 Stosur 898 (28 points)
19 Medina Garrigues 1030 (60 points)
20 Li 1040 (60 points) (14 results)

Here's the ranking points for players ranked #5-20 after the French Open:

5 Kuznetsova 6191
6 Jankovic 6100
7 Zvonareva 5360
8 Azarenka 4746

9 Caro 4350

10 Petrova 3760
11 Aga Radwanska 3411
12 Bartoli 3285
13 Ivanovic 3172
14 Cibulkova 3065
15 Pennetta 2860
16 Zheng 2603
17 Mauresmo 2549
18 Stosur 2428
19 Medina Garrigues 2140
20 Li 2114


Caro needs to gain 1811 more points than Kuznetsova does after the French Open in order to pass her in the rankings, 170 points more to pass Zvonareva, and 950 points more to pass Azarenka. Jankovic has to outgain Caro by 580 points after the French Open in order to stay ahead of her in the rankings. Kuznetsova, Zvonareva, and Azarenka have all so far earned more points per tournament played in 2009 than Caro. Caro has so far earned more points per tournament played in 2009 than Jankovic.

Caro has to be outgained by 875 points after the French Open to be passed by Bartoli in the rankings, 688 points to be passed by Ivanovic, 725 points to be passed by Cibulkova, 851 points to be passed by Mauresmo, and760 points to be passed by Stosur. All the others have to outgain Caro by more than 1000 points after the French Open in order to pass her in the rankings. Caro has so far earned more points per tournament played in 2009 than players ranked #10-20 except Ivanovic. Ivanovic has so far earned more points per tournament played in 2009 than Caro.

I got the points to pass or be passed by subtracting Caro's points to defend after the French Open and the other player's points to defend after the French Open, by subtracting Caro's ranking points and the other player's ranking points, and then subtracting the difference in points to defend from the difference in ranking points.

Caro is 9th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after the US Open. For comparison, Caro was 13th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 last year, 1 below her year end ranking of 12. The Wta now includes 0 point results in the YEC race so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 200 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at a tournament in order to increase her ranking points.

Caro has won 77.5% (62-18) of her matches as of the end of the US Open. She's won 78% (64-18) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Azarenka and Mayr).

Caro has the 6th best winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only as of the end of the US Open. She's 6th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50 or the YEC race top 50. Caro has the 6th best winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players or the YEC race top 50 as of the end of the US Open if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after the US Open to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

I think these are interesting and usefull collected here.
Especially "Here's a breakdown of Caro's ranking points after the US Open:" as I can see easier how a the next results will affect her ranking.
1 thing have you ever concidered using the ["code"]value["/code"] vB Code Without the " "

AAAA AA AA AA
BBBBB B BB BB as it preserves the spacing or one can put more spaces in and it makes it easier to read the long lists.

I'm sure you know TBE's WTA Ranks Update Thread (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=236674)
I think that's usefull too, as I don't have to wait to the next Monday too see how she is doing.

Caro was 8th in points per tournament played among the top 50 for the 2009 season. For comparison, Caro was 13th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 in 2008, 1 below her year end ranking of 12.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 200 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at a tournament in order to increase her ranking points.

Caro won 73.6%% (67-24) of her matches in 2009. She won 74.2% (69-24) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Azarenka and Mayr).

Caro had the 8th best winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only. She was 7th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50. She had the 7th best winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out on december 28 to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

Thanks for the breakdown.
I can see qualification rounds for Grand Slam and WTA-tour tournamnets are included in this statistic too.
Otherwise a player like KAI-CHEN CHANG would only have a win/loss record of 5/5 instead of 19/6.

I assume it's not counted as a 1st round win when a top8 seeded player starts directly in round 2 of bigger tournamnets?

Yah, qualification rounds are counted and some Fed Cup matches (I think it's zonal level matches that aren't in the Wta's records). Challengers are excluded which is a good thing as the win/loss stats could be skewed quite a bit by that.

Yes, a loss in the 2nd round in after a 1st round bye only counts as a 2nd round loss.

Oops...I must have messed up when I cut and pasted from the Wta document I got the #s from. Thanks for pointing that out. :)

Caro is 6th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after Miami. For comparison, Caro was 8th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 4 below her year end ranking of 4. The Wta now includes 0 point results in the YEC race so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 200 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at a tournament in order to increase her ranking points.

Caro has won 70.6% (12-5) of her matches in 2010 as of the end of Miami. She's won 73.7% (14-5) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Arvidsson and Sevastova).

Caro is tied for the 18th best winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only as of the end of Miami. She's tied for 13th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50 and is tied for 16th if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50. Caro is tied for 9th best winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players and tied for 11th if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50 as of the end of Miami if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after Miami to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

Caro is 8th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after the French Open. For comparison, Caro was 8th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 4 below her year end ranking of 4. The Wta now includes 0 point results in the YEC race so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 200 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at a tournament in order to increase her ranking points.

Caro has won 71.1% (27-11) of her matches in 2010 as of the end of the French Open. She's won 72.5% (29-11) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Arvidsson and Sevastova).

Caro is tied for the 11th best winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only as of the end of the French Open. She's tied for 11th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50 and is tied for 11th if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50. Caro is tied for 10th best winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players and tied for 10th if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50 as of the end of the French Open if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after the French Open to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

I think it's very likely that Kim will make it into the YEC race top 10 soon as she normally does very well on the North American hard courts. That could mean less than 350 points from falling out of the top 10 in the YEC race from where Caro is now.

I think the top 4 (maybe 5 but Henin is out with an injury) in the YEC race are pretty much secured of making it to the YEC.

At the moment it takes 4425 points to be #8 in the rankings and 3756 points to be #10 in the rankings. It took 3555 points to be #8 in the YEC race last year and qualify for Doha and 3340 points to be #10 in the YEC race prior to the YEC. It took 3965 points to end the year at #8 in the rankings and 3450 points to finish at #10 in the rankings.

With the more evenly spreading around of points in 2010, probably the requirement to be in YEC will be 4,000+ .. but perhaps not by that much.

My understanding is Henin is out until after USO? .. Totally sucks for her and her fans for sure. If so she'll be looking at Tokyo, Beijing (Moscow?) to make up the points needed.

As for Caro, well I think 4,500 points should be enough to make YEC. If Caro can't make 1,500 points in HC season US/Asia and USO, I'm gonna be sooooooooooooooooooooo pi55ed.

4000 or so points to make it to the YEC sounds about right.

Caro can essentially add 3 more tournaments to her YEC race total without having to do better than her 16th best result (she's played 14 tournaments so far this but 3 of them are 1 point results and 2 more spots are for the US Open and Beijing). After the 3 one point results Caro's lowest result is 120 points.

Here's a list of the points Caro can earn in the tournaments shs'e scheduled to play for the rest of the year:


Copenhagen
2nd round 30 points
quarterfinal 70 points
semifinal 130 points
final 200 points
win 280 points

New Haven
2nd round 60 points
quarterfinal 120 points
semifinal 200 points
final 300 points
win 470 points

Cincinnati, Montreal, and Tokyo
2nd round 70 points
3rd round 125 points
quarterfinal 225 points
semifinal 395 points
final 620 points
win 900 points

Beijing
2nd round 80 points
3rd round 140 points
quarterfinal 250 points
semifinal 450 points
final 700 points
win 1000 points

US Open
2nd round 100 points
3rd round 160 points
4th round 280 points
quarterfinal 500 points
semifinal 900 points
final 1400 points
win 2000 points


Beijing in particular is pretty tricky in that seeded players can draw a top 20 player in the 1st round.

I'm thinking it'll take between 3700 and 3900 points to be ranked #10 at the end of the season. With that in mind, I think Caro will need at least three 200 or so point optional tournaments and 280 or so points from the 2 mandatory tournaments (3rd round at the US Open and Beijing, 4th round at the US Open, or quarters in Beijing) to be close to #10 in the year end rankings.

Caro is only 242 points ahead of #11 Azarenka in the YEC race plus Clijsters has yet to play her strongest part of the season. Rezai and Peer are also within 500 points of Caro in the YEC race. So a top 10 year end ranking is looking kind of questionable to me unless Caro steps it up. :shrug:

There is a huge after Schiavone (more than 600 points if we ignore Henin, who won't come back this season). This makes it very difficult for Dementieva, Azarenka etc. to reach Doha.

Race list as of September 13, 2010:

1 Wozniacki, Caroline DEN 5615 19
2 Williams, Serena USA 5355 12
3 Clijsters, Kim BEL 5295 12
4 Zvonareva, Vera RUS 5173 16
5 Williams, Venus USA 4985 13
6 Stosur, Samantha AUS 4567 15
7 Jankovic, Jelena SRB 4033 17

8 Schiavone, Francesca ITA 3952 19

9 Henin, Justine BEL 3415 10
10 Dementieva, Elena RUS 3327 17
11 Azarenka, Victoria BLR 3196 17
12 Li, Na CHN 3091 18
13 Peer, Shahar ISR 2965 18
14 Radwanska, Agnieszka POL 2831 16

There is a huge after Schiavone (more than 600 points if we ignore Henin, who won't come back this season). This makes it very difficult for Dementieva, Azarenka etc. to reach Doha. They probably need to win or at least reach the final in one of the big tournaments coming up (Tokyo, Beijing) in order to qualify for the Championships.

Its weird that JJ is seventh and yet I dont remember her doing very much this year (except for the semi at RG). I just would find it weird if neither Vika or Elena qualified. Vika has had some very bad luck this year with injuries but when she hasnt been injured (or concussed) shes played great e.g. Stanford and Eastbourne. I think Elena's problem has been a bit psychological this year, I think losing to Henin (boo!) in Melbourne really threw her mentally, especially because it was 2nd rnd. And then she got injured at RG which was very disappointing.

I guess I just have a soft spot for the two of them...lol

JJ won the Premier Mandatory event Indina Wells by beating Caro 62 64 in the final. This gave her 1000 points alone. This is a bigger tournamnet than Caro has ever won. (Caro's biggest career title is the Permier 5 event Rogers Cup which gave her 900 points all of Caro's other 9 career WTA titles have only come from the lowest WTA level events which is International events).
JJ also reached the final of the Permier 5 event in Rome and made the quaters of the Premier Mandatory event in Madrid.

Yeah that's right. Should have said all her victories besides Montreal are below Premier 5 level.
A Premier 5 title gives 900 points while a Premier title is only worth 470 points.

I hate the way WTA name the different levels, Premier mandatory, Premier 5, Premier and International. How many different Premier levels do they need? They should do like ATP and name them atfter the ranking points for tthe winner like ATP Masters 1000 (golden logo), ATP 500 (silver logo), ATP 250 (white logo).

It would also be simpler to follow for fans if ATP and WTA agreed to use the same system.

Question.

The WTA takes last year's YEC points off the week before this year's YEC starts right? So, Caro could be #1 for the week of the champs, if she picks up some more points in Beijing or Tokyo?

Question.

Yes, at least that's what happened a year ago.

To become a world no. 1 at the end of the season is in fact Caro's main objective for the rest of the season according to a Danish paper today (http://ekstrabladet.dk/sport/anden_sport/tennis/article1412506.ece). But it will be difficult because Zvonareva and Clijsters are not far behind Caro, and they have even less points to defend for the rest of the season. And Venus can also be a new #1 although she has a final at Doha to defend.

According to the entry lists Zvonareva plans to play Tokyo, Beijing and Moscow before Doha. Clijsters and Venus only plan to play Beijing.

If we remove the Doha 2009 points from the rankings, then the top 5 will look like this:

1 Williams, Serena 5495
2 Zvonareva, Vera 5480
3 Wozniacki, Caroline 5380
4 Clijsters, Kim 5325
5 Williams, Venus 5066

I still think it's possible for all of these to be a world #1 on the rankings to be published Monday 25th of October (although it's a bit harder for Venus and Kim since they only play Beijing). It will be quite exciting to see how it turns out in the end!

There's a great risk, however, that the new #1 going into Doha will only hold that spot for a week, since there's a lot of points at stake at Doha!

Caro is 7th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after the US Open. For comparison, Caro was 8th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 4 below her year end ranking of 4. The Wta now includes 0 point results in the YEC race so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 130 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at a tournament in order to increase her ranking points.

Caro has won 76.6% (49-15) of her matches in 2010 as of the end of the US Open. She's won 77.3% (51-5) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Arvidsson and Sevastova).

Caro is 6th in winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only as of the end of the US Open. She's 6th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50 and is 6th if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50. Caro is 6th in winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players and 6th if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50 as of the end of the US Open if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after the US Open to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

Caro was 4th in points per tournament played among the top 50 at the end of the 2010 season. For comparison, Caro was 8th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 4 below her year end ranking of 4. The Wta now includes 0 point results in the YEC race so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 125 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at non-mandatory tournaments in order to increase her ranking points. Results at mandatory tournaments are stuck in Caro's ranking until she plays that tournament again next year.

Caro won 78.5 (62-17) of her matches in 2010. She won 79% (64-17) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Arvidsson and Sevastova).

Caro was 5th in winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only. She was 5th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50. Caro was 5th in winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after the US Open to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

Thanks for all the stats, Protoss. I have one small addition to make.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 125 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at a tournament in order to increase her ranking points.


With the exception of the Madrid Mandatory. Caro only has to earn more than 80 points there to increase her ranking points.

EDIT: The Charleston points are actually useless now, because IW and Miami are mandatory. So even if Caro loses her first matches there, the Charleston points won't replace IW or Miami.

Caro's 16th best result is now 280 points. That means in a premier tournament Caro has to reach the final to gain ranking points and in a premier 5 tournament she has to reach the semis to gain ranking points. Dang. :p

It looks like 9850 ranking points will be Caro's career high ranking point total for quite a while. It would have been cool if she could have reached 10,000 ranking points.

P: Premier 5. At least two P5 must be included (Dubai, Montreal...)
O: Optional.

Remaining optional tournaments (may be used when PVB drops off etc.):
Rome 125
Cincinnati 125
Warsaw 120

The 280 points from PVB 2010 will drop off a week after Charleston and will be replaced with the points she earns at Charleston 2011 OR the 125 points earned at Rome or Cincinnati 2010 (in case she doesn't reach at least SF at Charleston).

Eb.dk (http://ekstrabladet.dk/sport/anden_sport/tennis/article1528096.ece) says Caroline is guaranteed to keep her #1 ranking until 18th of April which means she'll reach 27 weeks at #1 and pass Safina on the all-time list and become no. 10 on that list!

Caro is 2nd in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after Miami. For comparison, Caro was 4th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 3 below her year end ranking of 1. The Wta includes 0 point results in the YEC race so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 280 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at non-mandatory tournaments in order to increase her ranking points. Results at mandatory tournaments are stuck in Caro's ranking until she plays that tournament again next year.

Caro has won 84.0% (21-4) of her matches in 2010 as of the end of Miami. She's won 85.7% (24-4) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Schnyder, Keothavong, and Danilidou).

Caro is tied for 1st in winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only as of the end of Miami. She's tied for 1st if you count only players ranked inside the top 50 and is tied for 1st if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50. Caro is 1st in winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players and 1st if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50 as of the end of Miami if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.

Caro is 4th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after the French Open. For comparison, Caro was 4th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 3 below her year end ranking of 1. The Wta includes 0 point results in the YEC race so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 395 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at non-mandatory tournaments in order to increase her ranking points. Results at mandatory tournaments are stuck in Caro's ranking until she plays that tournament again next year.

Caro has won 83.3% (40-8) of her matches in 2011 as of the end of the French Open. She's won 84.3% (43-8) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Schnyder, Keothavong, and Danilidou).

Caro is 2nd in winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only as of the end of the French Open. She's 2nd if you count only players ranked inside the top 50 and is 2nd if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50. Caro is 2nd in winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players and 2nd if you count only players inside the YEC race top 50 as of the end of the French Open if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after the French Open to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

Looking at the above numbers Caroline has the potential to pick up quite a few points next year at Roland Garros, Wimbledon, Montreal (which was Toronto this year) and Cincinnati. I expect her to do significantly better at at least three of those four events in 2012.

The Wta includes 0 point results in the YEC race so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Oh. So how come she's only ranked where she is with those stats?
The majority of those Wta level wins have come in qualies. She's 17-2 in qualifying and 10-6 in main draw (now 10-7 since she lost 1st round in Tashkent which was after the win/loss document came out).

Also, 5 of the 9 Wta level tournaments (counting Tashkent) she's played this year have been internationals, 1 premier, 1 premier 5, and 2 grand slams.

Further discussion of this should probably be moved to another thread though.

Caro was 5th in points per tournament played among the top 50 at the end of 2011 season. For comparison, Caro was 4th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 3 below her year end ranking of 1. The Wta includes 0 point results in the rankings so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 320 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at non-mandatory tournaments in order to increase her ranking points. Results at mandatory tournaments are stuck in Caro's ranking until she plays that tournament again next year.

Caro won 78.8% (63-17) of her matches in 2011. She won 79.5% (66-17) of her matches if you count Fed Cup (wins over Schnyder, Keothavong, and Danilidou).

Caro was 3rd in winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only. She was 3rd if you count only players ranked inside the top 50. Caro was 3rd in winning % for the year for top 50 ranked players if you count her two wins in Fed Cup.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out at the end of the year to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

For comparison, Caro was 5th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 4 below her year end ranking of 1. The Wta includes 0 point results in the rankings so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

Caro has won 68.4% (13-6) of her matches in 2012 as of the end of Miami.

Thanks for thie breakdown Protoss. Good work. :yeah:.

I was looking at the rankings and the race and what surprised me was Caro was 6th in both of them. I was really surprised that she wasn't lower in the race than in the rankings. In fact in the race - the two players immediately above her have both played one more tournament (and that's before Charleston) and aren't ahead by much. And that's with her playing so bad this year! Just thinking what if she'd been playing well this year.

Although I enjoyed reading what the points per tournament and winning percentage - there are problems with using those figures as the way to rank a player that I have never liked. They do put Caro lower than the rankings and the race - but my problem with this way of doing the rankings was long before I was a Caro fan.

A problem with ranking points per tournament is that it is Mathematically flawed when there is a vast difference in ranking points that can be attained at different tournaments. Mathematically - it should be a weighted average so that what you divide by is factored depending on the points that can be earned per tournament.

To illustrate the Mathematical flaw - take an extreme case: say a player wins their first tournament and it's 1000 points. Points per tournament = 1000. If she plays a tournament now which has fewer than 1000 points - and much fewer if it is say Copenhagen - then even if she wins again (280 points) - her points per tournament drops to 640 points. Her best bet is not to play. The only way of correcting that flaw is to use a weighted average. But one thing I do like about the existing rankings is the principle that you can never have fewer points by playing than if you didn't play at all. You might not be able to gain any ranking points whatever you do - but you can't lose points that you wouldn't lose by not playimg.

Weighted average gives a % you divide by the sum of the maximum points you can earn at the tournaments you played. So winning Miami and Copenhagen you get:
( (1000 + 280) / (1000 + 280) ) * 100% = 100%

The other "problem" with %s is that part of the actual rankings and race measure being able to keep up a level of performance over a sustained number of tournaments. Particularly being able to meet the criteria set in the roadmap for what constitutes a minimum nuimber of tournaments in a season. Those that play less - we really have no idea if the players with a high % would be able to sustain it. After all - say Vika decided not to play any more in 2012 - she would be completely untouchable in the % rankings. The % figure gives Serena and Sharapova an advantage because their ability to sustain their level is not a factor that is measured.

An analogy might be that we have a a 1500 meter champion and a 200 meter champion in a race. The 200 meter champion hares off. Takes a breather and drops out for a couple of laps whilst the rest run on. Then rejoins for the last lap haring off again. Measuring average speed whilst they were actually running - the 200 meters champion was fastest. But she didn't actually race for a couple of laps!

It's really interesting to see the stats you did though. But as with all stats to know the limitations before drawing conclusions. And remembering there's more than one sense that a player can be measured or be best. You can have two #1s in different senses.

Even though Caro has equaled her Madrid result from last year while Bartoli was knocked out a round earlier than last year, Bartoli will pass Caro in the rankings if she loses against Serena! I assume it's because Madrid/Rome was played a week earlier last year, so Caro stands to lose her Rome SF points after this week. And if this tournament ends with e.g. Li beating Serena in the final, Caro is in real danger of being pushed out of top 8 before FO!

She can get back to at or near the top but I do think that falling from number one to (possibly) outside the top ten in less than six months is a significant setback that needs to be acknowledged as such. We will just have to wait and see if that happens or not. She can stop her slide with good results at Roland Garros and/or Wimbledon plus she has virtually nothing to defend in Montreal and Cincinnati.

marineblue
May 9th, 2012, 06:25 PM
She'd have to have a huge downfall to fall out of the top 10. And in case she does, she can still bounce back as she doesn't have to defend many points at Rome and RG. The players above her are also not doing that great,just look what happened to Kvitova. If she doesn't do well in Rome and RG there's a chance that Caro and Stosur will overtake her.

Yes, whether she's #6, 7 or 8 doesn't matter all that much but #9 is a different matter. As the 9th seed she can face a higher seed already in R16 at FO. I'd rather have her play maybe Petkovic or Zvonareva in R16 instead of Stosur or Li.

May 9th, 2012, 09:46 PM
But its true that she had a big fall. So I dont see anything wrong in reporting it.
This is the #1 player of 2010 & 2011 who was holding 9 titles last summer.
Now she hasnt won a title in 9 months and her only SF win in that whole 9 months is against Martic in an Int'l.

That doesnt mean she will never be back in a slam final, or back at #1.
But to me, its only being honest to say she's regressed. She lost to Safarova, Goerges, Ivanovic and Kerber in Premiers this year. With no Premier final appearance.

I dont know whats going to happen. Just watching Jankovic & Ivanovic, I dont underestimate how hard it is to get back into the very elite

Caro is still the youngest player in top 10. Actually, Pavlyuchenkova ranked 25 is the younger player closest to her in the rankings.
Can anyone remember when was the last time Caro had a younger player ranked ahead of her? I think it might have been in August 2006 when Ula Radwanska was ranked slightly better. If I'm correct, it's been almost 6 years since Caro has had a younger player ranked ahead of her! That's not a bad record. :)

Caro was ranked behind Tamira Paszek until february 25, 2008 after Doha finished. She was ranked ahead of Paszek for one week before it switched back the next week. Caro passed Paszek again in the rankings after Miami 2008 and has stayed ahead of her since then. :)

Ok, I didn't remember Paszek was ranked so high at age 15-17. Maybe it's because she's actually ranked lower now than when she was 16 (in July 2007 she was ranked 35!) that you tend to forget what a promising teenager she was.

Caro is 12th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after the French Open. For comparison, Caro was 5th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 4 below her year end ranking of 1. The Wta includes 0 point results in the rankings so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

I'll probably look into doing a weighted average of points per tournament at some point. If someone else wants to do that, feel free to do so.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 60 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at non-mandatory tournaments in order to increase her ranking points. Results at mandatory tournaments are stuck in Caro's ranking until she plays that tournament again next year.

Caro has won 66.7% (22-11) of her matches in 2012 as of the end of the French Open.

Caro is 18th in winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only. She is 15th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after the French Open to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

Wozniacki is 11th in the Race. Only a few players behind her could downgrade her until the end of 2012 (Clijsters, Lisicki, Ivanovic??, Kanepi, Goerges). Most probably, she'll finish the year inside the Top15, maybe in the lower Top10. Sure it's disappointing, but it's not catastrophic.

At that point, I'm just afraid that she'll miss the Year End Championship. She already has more than 700 points behind Stosur, number 8 in the Race. She'll need a really strong finish to be among the last 8. Basically, she'll have the double her points, since 4000 pts is usually needed to grab the 8th spot.

It's probably just speculation. I would guess that there are far too many variables to say for certain where she will be ranked after the U.S. Open. I do think she will have a very tough time defending her points from New Haven and the U.S. Open so it is certainly possible that she will drop out of the top ten but it is also possible that she can climb in the rankings, at least a spot or two.

When I listen to former players who are commentators discuss tennis, they dont even mention Wozniacki anymore when they talk about top players.
Now its Serena, Sharapova, Azarenka, Kvitova, Radwanska.

I've never seen anyone destroy their own career by changing a successful style of play before.

Now Caroline has to show she can be relevant again. And winning a couple of early round matches wont do it.

This is a big hardcourt season for Caroline, and I dont know what she's going to do if she's still losing early most tournaments when back on hardcourt

marineblue
Jul 7th, 2012, 08:48 PM
Caroline is still an elite player,however,she really needs some big results now. The changes that she made to her game did not bring any improvement in the results,there's no way of denying that.

And,I don't think she is naive enough to not see that a more aggressive approach has not made her tougher but instead it made her a lot more beatable.After she lost against Pazsek she said that no matter how well you played nobody is going to remember it the next day if you're the loser.

She will get back on track if she stops playing in a way that makes her feel outside of her comfort zone. She's a great defensive player who can also take initiative when opportunity comes. I'm wondering what will happen in case the current situation continues (which hopefully won't happen). Maybe we will really see her leaving Piotr and hiring a coach who'd help her rebuild the game she used to play in the past instead of the 'be-more-aggressive' mess which has got her in danger of dropping outside of top 10.

Its going to be interesting to see how this plays out. Kirilenko was 2 points from the Wimbledon semis. This is a great time to be an elite player because there are a lot of soft draws.
But if you cant beat Mchale, Kanepi, Paszek, Safarova, Goerges, Ivanovic ( who are all outside the top 10), it doesnt matter what your draws are if all these players keep beating you

I disagree again I think it good for her too keep her Counterpunher game style But that just not going bring Caro back too the top I sorry she need too add somthing too her game, she does need a weapon weather it her serve, or her FH getter better, Her just running down ball and waiting for the error not going win her a slam, and what we need too understand is it going take time for her too get used too be aggressive and what I mean about being aggressive I not trying say like a Serena or Maria, but an aggressive CouterPunher, She need that Weapon that can get her outta trouble when she down or too end a match when she up, Again Look Back at the AO 2011 when she had Match Point on her Match with Li na she should have won that match but Li na made a great comeback, if Caro had a Weapon like a Serve she could ended the Match, Also we have too understand she just started too work with this coach result are not going happen over night or in one match even through we would want them too, look how long it took Maria & Ana too get Used too their Coach, & Caro also learning how too not being in her comfort ZOne which is behind the Baseline through the whole match that something she going have too get used too as well. I still think she need too go back too her old Racquet Babolat

I’m not answering a particular post but, inspired by the posts above mine, I just want to share my view about Wozniacki's situation. First of all, I agree she has no excuse to lose against players like McHale, Vinci or Hantuchova. That's certainly not the best way to climb the ranking. She’s just a much better player than them. That's being said, I do not see her as an elite player. I never have and never will, unless she proves me wrong. Those would be Clijsters, Henin, Graf, the Williams sisters, Hingis, among others. With peak Sharapova not far behind. The next category would be players like Li Na, Kuznetsova, Azarenka, Kvitova in their best days. Those players would normally reach GS semifinals and being contenders for Mandatory and Premier 5 events. They should be located somewhere between 4th and 8th in the ranking.

Personally, I rank Wozniacki in the next category, with Dementieva, Zvonareva, or Radwanska. Those players would normally reach GS quarterfinals, with an occasional semifinal or a 4th round exit. They would win intermediate events (New Haven) regularly and a Premier 5 event once in a while. They should be located somewhere between 6th and 12th in the ranking.

Since I thought she was ranked too high last year, her fall in the ranking is not bothering or surprising me as much as it does for many of her other fans (however, her actual level of play certainly is). In my point of view, Wozniacki is an overachiever. She already has far exceeded my expectations. I became a fan when she was unable to pass through the third and fourth round in the Slams. At a time when she was constantly losing to Lisicki, and Cirstea and when Jankovic was toying with her.

In my POV, Wozniacki’s progression in the ranking at the end of 2010 had two causes: first, she started to put more pressure on her opponents, occasionally coming to the net and hitting the ball very deep in the court, resulting in a flow of forced and unforced errors from the ballbashers. On the other hand, the defensive players (Peer, Cibulkova, Dementieva), have always constituted a challenge for her, since she is unable to hit winners against them, while they're giving her fewer errors. She also benefited from some circumstances: the best players were playing half-schedules, some were injured or retired (Safina, Henin), and many were playing at a fraction of their real capabilities (Kuznetsova, Ivanovic, Jankovic, just to name a few). The path to the top of the ranking was wild open and Wozniacki seizes her chance. All credits to her. However, you know something is abnormal when a player like Zvonareva, who spent most of her career between the 7th and 20th rank, become number two in the world and make 2 GS finals. Inevitably, the competition would increase. It happened when Na Li and Kvitova stepped up, while Sharapova regained her form and Azarenka was greatly improving her game. At the same time, Goerges, Petkovic, Cibulkova, Lisicki and others constituted a real Top20.

Meanwhile, all the pressure was on Wozniacki, the infamous slamless number one. The girl is strong and she offered an incredible resistance to that pressure :hug:Unfortunately, she’s just human and I think that they eventually succeeded to break her mental toughness. She’s also trying to improve her offensive skills and to reconcile her professional and personal life. That’s a huge challenge.

Personally, I think that she can add some weapons to her game without losing her defensive skills. She already did in 2010. Her service is also a lot better than it uses to be back in 2009-2010. But she must fight against her instincts. Let's not forget she has learned to play against a wall. Her whole game has been build around a defensive mindset. It brought her in the Top10, but it was never enough to beat Clijsters or Sharapova. And it will not be enough to beat the new Azarenka, Kerber or Kvitova if they play a good match. I always thought she could become a modern Clijsters, but she’ll need to improve her offensive skills to reach that level.

Right now, her main goal should be to regain her confidence. And it will come with wins. I have to say that I liked what I saw in the first round of Wimbledon. She was coming to the net, playing a good offensive match and defending well. The way she was playing, success will come soon enough. As for now, as long as she continues to win most of her matches against the players ranked outside the Top 30, and some matches against the Top 11-30, she’ll maintain a good ranking.

Hum, sorry for the length. I hope the read was not too unpleasant :awww:

"Personally, I think that she can add some weapons to her game without losing her defensive skills."

Yeah, I think thats what everyone expected. That she would add to her game while still being a defensive oriented game that she was winning with.

Instead she gave that up to be more aggressive ( especially the forehand side).

But winning is the most important thing, and she doesnt do that anymore. No titles and mostly early round losses.

She is so far from where she was. If she doesnt win this hardcourt fall, what is she going to do? That is the part I'm interested in. She's risking a lot to be more aggressive in a way that never worked for her before

Just a slight correction. Caroline has defeated Maria twice (once at the 2010 U.S. open and once at Indian Wells in 2011). It's fair to point out that Maria is playing much better now than she was then so who knows if the Caroline of late 2010/early 2011 would beat the Maria of today.

Your whole post is wrong but this is probably the worst part:facepalm:. You basically put down her accomplisments as some kind of a lucky coincidence. With this kind of 'thinking' it's easy to belittle any player and argue that they merely benefited from the circumstances.

Caroline got to her ranking defeating the best players of her time. Those who were not on the tour, well...Graf also wasn't playing. Kuznetsova, Jankovic, Ivanovic are playing worse now,too,so we shall attribute success of the current elite to that, I guess.:rolleyes:

Your breakdown of the elite makes no sense, you have mixed players of different eras some of whom never actually played each other. :help:

If that happens I hope she realises that it's not worth to take too many risks for the sake of it. She's reached the no.1, won many tournaments and defeated the best players on the tour so she also had her 'weapons'.

The claim that she'd never win a grand slam with the old game is not true. She used to get to SF and also got to a F of a slam before. So, it was a matter of time and experience, she got to no.1 when she was only 20.

In a way, the awful result in Wimbledon is a good thing to happen. I think it will make her question a lot if making drastic changes was worth it.

Part of Caroline's problems probably have to do with some indesiciveness. Should she trust her old game or be more agressive?....Different coaching situations every couple of months with inevitably different people whispering different things in her ears.... It all must get a bit confusing to her. I've always felt that she shouldn't leave her core game behind because it has taken her to number one and won her 18 tournaments. So I agree with the "if it's not broken, don't fix it" part of your argument.

Having said that, every player tries to improve and works on his/her weaknesses all the time. Caroline trying to add to her offensive arnenal is therefore a good idea in my opinion. It doesn't mean that she should go toe to toe in a ball bashing contest with a Sharapova which surely would be a losing strategy. But if she can for example improve her serve it already improves the offensive possibilities of her entire game. Not only would it give her more free points, it would also result in more poor-ish returns from her opponents which then sets her up for easy put aways or at least a more agressive first rallying shot, especially on the backhand which is a big weapon when she wants it to be.

However, none of those four players have more GS semifinal appearances than Wozniacki! They have 3 semifinals (Azarenka and Li Na), or 4, like Wozniacki! But those four playes have won slam titles, of course. Most of those players also have more slam appearances than Wozniacki (Kuznetsova 41, Azarenka 27, Li Na 25, Wozniacki 22, Kvitova 17). So Caro's effectiveness in terms of SF's per slam appearance is actually among the best (only bettered by Kvitova):

Semifinals per GS appearance (percentage)

Player GS semifinals GS appearances %

Kvitova 4 17 23.5
Wozniacki 4 22 18.2
Li Na 3 25 12.0
Azarenka 3 27 11.1
Kuznetsova 4 41 9.8

I agree,if she improved her serve that would help her a lot. In a match with Serena it helped her a lot when she needed to get ahead of the opponent.
And nowadays, when she loses leads so quickly good serve is very much needed.

No, I am not "put[ting] down her accomplisments (sic) as some kind of a lucky coincidence". I attribute her success to her determination, her hard working, her amazing defensive skills and, as I said, "she started to put more pressure on her opponents, occasionally coming to the net and hitting the ball very deep in the court, resulting in a flow of forced and unforced errors from the ballbashers". She also improved her service. That's being said, those skills were certainly enough to beat many players, but they were not enough against the best players. Before 2012, she was 0-3 against Serena, 0-2, against Clijsters, 2-3 against Sharapova, 1-3 against Na Li (her only win being in 2008), 4-5 against Zvonareva. She starts beating Jankovic only when the Serb becomes useless. She leads Kvitova, but she was totally dominated by her in Madrid 2010. Then she was crushed in Wimbledon and YEC. In any respectable era of tennis, you should not reach a final of GS, or even a semifinal, when you can't beat your best opponents. You're free to disagree, but I've been following tennis since Graf's era, and this era is clearly the weakest I've seen. It pains me to admit it, since I really like that sport, but most matches nowadays are just awfully bad.

As for Wozniacki's competition, would you contest that Serena and Clijsters were not playing a lot when Wozniacki starts to win everything? Would you contest that Jankovic, Kuznetsova, Ivanovic and many more were playing as bad as possible? Or the fact that Safina was injured? At that time, Wozniacki was mainly opposed to Dementieva, Radwanska, Azarenka, an half decent Kuznetsova and Zvonareva at the best moments of her career. She was the best among them, so she deserves her wins and titles. But it's not the same challenge than dominating against Serena, Venus, Clijsters and Henin, or peak Safina.

I don’t know about that. You might be right, but I think that she’s mainly suffering from some lack of self-belief. I mean, she’s not even aggressive right now. In most matches she’s more passive than ever. That’s the reason she’s losing against all the good hitter. She’s not putting any pressure on them. She has to hit deep and to move them around. And when she tries to be aggressive, she hits everything outside the court. IMO, this shows a lack of confidence. She has to rebuild it.

However, none of those four players have more GS semifinal appearances than Wozniacki! They have 3 semifinals (Azarenka and Li Na), or 4, like Wozniacki! But those four playes have won slam titles, of course. Most of those players also have more slam appearances than Wozniacki (Kuznetsova 41, Azarenka 27, Li Na 25, Wozniacki 22, Kvitova 17). So Caro's effectiveness in terms of SF's per slam appearance is actually among the best (only bettered by Kvitova):

Yes, I know. That's why I wrote they would normally reach. Na Li is an underachiever. It's a shame for such a talented player to have such a poor resume. Kuznetsova is a underachiever as well. And they played in a much stronger era. Azarenka has been stopped five times in GS by Serena. That's why you do not achieve as much in a strong era than in a weaker era. Normally, the players of my third category should be stopped by the bests of their era. It can't happen if they're not playing. Nonetheless, Wozniacki's achievements are quite good. Four semifinals in a whole career is already good. It's even better when you do it in a few years, as she did.

Just a slight correction. Caroline has defeated Maria twice (once at the 2010 U.S. open and once at Indian Wells in 2011). It's fair to point out that Maria is playing much better now than she was then so who knows if the Caroline of late 2010/early 2011 would beat the Maria of today.

You're right about it, and I could never forget Wozniacki's win at the US Open. One of her best win in career. Sharapova was playing really good tennis and Wozniacki was still dominating her. However, most of the time, Sharapova's has a clear edge over her.

There is a fine line between trying to understand whats going on & being critical.
Caroline is too good a player to waste a full year when healthy. If this keeps up another year, then its like Jankovic, she's history as a top player until she proves otherwise.
A player who can go a full year winning almost half the tournaments she enters shouldnt be in this situation just 1 year later. Now the hard part is to get herself back to near where she was

I think the biggest difference between Maria then and Maria now is her serve. Back then she was still struggling mightily and was prone to having many double faults. I couldn't tell you the exact numbers but the Indian Wells match in particular featured some very poor serving from Maria. There were tons of double faults and second serves.

It's not because 'some posters are extremely sensitive to any criticism of Caroline's game'. The reason is that fans who truly support Caroline like myself are fed up with reading countless disrespectful comments on her achievements and putting a negative spin on anything related to her posted over and over again by the certain individuals. Comments which are often identical with what we read in GM from the most ardent Wozniacki haters.

I'm sure that all this won't go through your system so I'll try it in a simpler way:
Would you come up to a player asking for an autograph saying something like this:

"Hi,you are such an over-achiever! I do not think you are a part of the elite. In fact,you got where you did because a lot of other players were sick or injured. I was not happy when I saw you getting to no.1 and if you played XYZ at their best you'd surely lose.Now, may I have your autograph, please?"

I know who was and was not playing when Caroline got to the top. I am not 'contesting' it. And this is the point. They were not playing against her so to insinuate that she'd have no chance to beat them had they met is actually putting her down. You cannot tell how things would pan out if the players who were retired/injured were playing unless they were actually out there playing and faced Caroline. As I said before, with this kind of logic it's easy to belittle every player.

As far as the bad rep, you are welcome. I feel you deserved one. We've had enough intrusions in the forum and also people who only claim to be fans until you actually read their posts. If you post belittling and factually wrong(!) claims about a player in their fan forum don't expect a warm welcome. At least not from me.

I dont think Serena or Kim would have held Caroline off for #1 when she was winning 9 of 19 tournaments. Kim would have had #1 a few more weeks, so would Serena, but they're older & when Caroline was 3000 points in first, they would be ranked behind her.

But it is true that everyone who said Caroline was a weak #1 and would not have been #1 if other players were healthy are all having the last laugh now.
Caroline's recent results undermine what she accomplished. Because players just dont give up a spot at the top like she did, when healthy, unless they're just not good enough to be there

Here is a small exercise of calculating that has no claim to be scientific. The purpose is trying to analyze the likelihood that Caroline has of reaching the YEC by adding the 2012 Race points to the ranking points earned by her main rivals in 2011, from the U.S. Open Series to the end of the year, excluding the championships points.

Thus, if her main rivals perform in the last tournaments of 2012 the same way they did in 2011, on in a similar way, we can have a good idea of how many ranking points they will have just before the YEC. I know, it's a big if. But it gives an idea.

In the table below, the race include the Olympics points. My data are sometimes a bit differents from the official data. As you know, only 16 tournaments are include into the official ranking, so I excluded the weakest results made by the players in 2011 (those officially excluded by the WTA itself). Keep in mind it usually takes approximately 4000 ranking points to be inside the Top8 at the end of the year. I assume Sharapova, Azarenka, Serena, Radwanska and Kerber will all be in the YEC. 1) because they've been incredibly solids since the beginning of the year. 2) because they already reached the 4000 cap. SO, they're 3 places left for the YEC.

Some personnal comments:

Kvitova as done incredibly bad in the last tournaments of 2011. Hard to imagine that she could do worst than that. So, she's somehow assured to make at least 4000 pts. I think she will do a lot better this year, if only by the grace of "weak draws". A quaterfinal, or even a semifinal in the US Open is definitely possible. I'm fairly sure she'll be in the YEC.

Stosur won the US Open. I don't think she'll do it again, but even a quaterfinal there would give her something like 4348. She's unpredictable, so she could do worst than in 2011. She's in a good position, but not in yet.

Errani. She will need only a little 400 pts from now to reach the YEC. However, she only did 80 pts in her last tournaments last year. Can she do better or does her year already over for all practical purposes? I'd say, Caroline has her chances to overcome her.

Bartoli. In her own way, she's faily consistent. I think she would do around the same ranking points than in 2011. Here's a window for Caroline.

Na Li. She's totally unpredictable. She could lose in her first round until the end of the year. Or she could win the US Open. That being said, I think she's a lot better in the beginning of the year than at the end. According by my table, she could find herself below 3000 pts by the YEC. Here's another window for Caroline.

Ivanovic. I think my table adequately shows her potential until the end of the year. Appr. 2800 pts. Caroline should stay ahead of her.

En résumé: Kvitova will must probably be among the last 8, along with Stosur. But it's very likely that Errani, Li and Bartoli fail to reach the 4000 points.

So if Caroline manages to gain between 1800 and 2000 pts by the end of the year, she could end up in the YEC. Chances are still there. Right now she should have 2153 pts, including the Olympics.

Any thoughts? :)

NB: The table doesn't show as well as I'd like. But I hope you can understand it nonetheless.

I considered doing something similar myself, glad you saved me the trouble.

At her best Caroline is much more consistent than any of the others striving for those three spots at the YEC but Caroline hasn't been at her best for some time. For whatever reason she has always done poorly in Toronto so it is good for her that this year the Rogers Cup is in Montreal. I think it is very important that she has a deep run there and to really establish herself as a threat to win early on. If she can get off to a great start and go deep (quarters/semis) in both Montreal and Cincinnati I think she will have a real shot at the YEC. If she stumbles early at those two events her chances get much worse. We have seen in the past that once she gets on a roll and starts winning that she plays better and better, that's why I believe it is important for her to have a great start.

Good work Achernar. But the main thing I get from this is that it's wide open with lots of points available with USO, 1PM and 3P5s and it's all in Caro's hands to reach that 4000 point mark.

I totally agree with you about Petra. Points-wise she's not there. But even if she matched that terrible patch of results she had up to Beijing after which she really played well - she's only just short of 4000. And I really do think she'll do better thaqn in 2011. I don't think she'll exit 1st round at USO for a start.

On Sam - you say even getting to QFs would get her to 4348 - but QFs for Sam? I wouldn't pencil her in as a certainty to get to QF. I definitely think with her that the existing race shows her chances better than your table with her points in 2011.

On your comments on the other girls - I agree with you. But it all boils down to we don't know and there's a ton of points up for grabs and one really deep run at the USO which we can't really predict skews any analysis now and would do wonders for their chances. Also there are other players you haven't mentioned that are around where Caro is in the race - Cibulkova for example.

It's all up to Caro - some good runs at the big WTA tournaments please. I can see possibly one or even two of these players around her having great runs at the USO but I've no idea who. They will then be very big threats.

Agree. There isn't really any need to make complicated what/if calcs for a number of players. History has shown that a tally of around the 4,000 points mark is enough to just make it through as #8.

For Caroline, if she cannot collect about 2,000 points from 1 slam, 1 PM and 3 P5, we just have to acknowledge, she wasn't in good enough form this year :shrug:

I think Kvitova will be able to get in,she has barely any points to defend. Bartoli is another likely participant because she has already got to a final in Carlsbad and it seems she's doing well on this surface.
The last place is going to be the one to fight for and I think it'll be between Caro and Errani. Caro has got a good record on this surface and a lot of big match experience. On the other hand Sarita is the upset queen and has been very consistent. It'll be very interesting to see who finally makes it. I wish it was both,actually, because they are both very determined and great fighters.

Its true she seems to take confidence from her wins and she often gets better and better when she's on a sequence. Hopefully it's about to happen.

You certainly don't give much chance to Stosur for the last part of the year :lol: Let's say she's not traditionally known as a terror in the US Open. However, she did well recently in the American slam: quaterfinal in 2010 and the title in 2011. Moreover, she also reached the final in Toronto, the quarter in Cincinnati and the final in Osaka. Clearly, we can't rule her out for the last tournaments. However, I doubt she'll do that well in 2012.

Regarding Cibulkova, I thought I could include her in my table, but I changed my mind since I don't think she'll be able to claim a place in the YEC. At the moment, she has 2099 in the race. In her last tournaments from 2011 she gained 980 pts (including a win in Moscow), which would bring her to 3079 pts.

The real threat could prove to be Clijsters. She may very well go on a rampage, reclaiming the US Open as the climax of her career. It's unlikely, but who knows...

In the end, you sum it all perfectly by saying "It's all up to Caro".

But my table shows that Caroline still has some room to maneuver. If she starts to win regularly again, she could reach the YEC. Go on little Dane :bounce:

Caro is 14th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after the US Open. For comparison, Caro was 5th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 4 below her year end ranking of 1. The Wta includes 0 point results in the rankings so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

I'll probably look into doing a weighted average of points per tournament at some point. If someone else wants to do that, feel free to do so.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 125 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at non-mandatory tournaments in order to increase her ranking points. Results at mandatory tournaments are stuck in Caro's ranking until she plays that tournament again next year.

Caro has won 64% (32-18) of her matches in 2012 as of the end of the US Open.

Caro is 15th in winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only. She is 15th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after the US Open to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

If she won both that would put her at 4545 points in the YEC race. Li is at 4416 points after making it to the 4th round in Beijing. If Caro doesn't win both tournaments or Li gets to the semis in Beijing after the YEC) then Caro will not be one of the 8 YEC qualifiers.

If Stosur wins both Osaka and Moscow she would have 4420 points in the YEC race. If she did that then she would definitely be ahead of Caro in the YEC race as the only way Caro could pass that total is by winning both tournaments.

The difference between being #9 instead of #10 is not immediately important, but then you'd only need one withdrawal for Caro to be QF seed at AO.

No, Caro can't pass Stosur in the rankings if she wins Sofia. Even if Caro wins Sofia while going undefeated in round robin play she'd still be 235 points behind in the rankings.

Caro has to make it the final of Sofia undefeated in round robin play or win Sofia (regardless of win-loss record in round robin play) in order to finish the season at #10. That's assuming that Bartoli doesn't play at the YEC.

As Bartoli has 120 as her 16th best, she can play 1 match in YEC, and Caro will be No. 10 with a Sofia Finale?

As Bartoli has 120 as her 16th best, she can play 1 match in YEC, and Caro will be No. 10 with a Sofia Finale?

As a new entry to YEC (compared to 2011) does it matter with her 16th, as YEC is allowed to count as a 17th tournament ..?

I.e Bartoli will keep her 16th AND get the points from YEC.

No, I has asked about it, the 16 best results counts after both YEC's.

Yes, Caro would still finish at #10 in that scenario. If Bartoli were to win that match then Caro would need to win Sofia probably undefeated in round robin play (I'm not sure what the tiebreak is if two players have the same amount of points which is what would happen if Caro won Sofia with a 2-1 round robin record).

just a small correction: Indian Wells - 140 points.

#16 : 200 point
#17 : 175 point (OG)

Meaning: She is not defending any points before Aus. Open (500 points), and she will have to reach the finals in Brisbane and/or Sydney to increase her current total: 3765points.

Caro was 10th in points per tournament played among the top 50 at the end of the 2012 season. For comparison, Caro was 5th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, 4 below her year end ranking of 1. The Wta includes 0 point results in the rankings so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

I'll probably look into doing a weighted average of points per tournament at some point. If someone else wants to do that, feel free to do so.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 200 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at non-mandatory tournaments in order to increase her ranking points. Results at mandatory tournaments are stuck in Caro's ranking until she plays that tournament again next year.

Caro won 70% (50-21) of her matches in 2012 as of the end of the season.

Caro was 12th in winning % for the season for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only. She was 11th if you count only players ranked inside the top 50.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out at the end of the season to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)

Caro is 15th in points per tournament played among the YEC race top 50 after the French Open. For comparison, Caro was 10th in points per tournament played among the top 50 last year, the same as her year end ranking of 10. The Wta includes 0 point results in the rankings so I excluded the 0 point results to come up with points per tournament played.

I'll probably look into doing a weighted average of points per tournament at some point. If someone else wants to do that, feel free to do so.

Caro's 16th best result in her "best 16" ranking is 200 points, so Caro has to earn more than that at non-mandatory tournaments in order to increase her ranking points. Results at mandatory tournaments are stuck in Caro's ranking until she plays that tournament again next year.

Caro has won 55% (17-14) of her matches in 2013 as of the end of the French Open.

Caro is tied for 46th with 1 player in winning % for the year for players ranked inside the top 100 based on Wta level events only. She is 32rd if you count only players ranked inside the top 50. Caro is 39th in winning % for the year among the YEC race top 50.


(I corrected the Wta win/loss rankings document that came out after the French Open to be based on winning % as the rankings were sometimes not ordered that way in the original file.)
