they cant do it next week as rank order can change.

they really should do a whole week's build up like the ATP Finals do, where all the guys arrive a long time before and do all sorts of promo/photo shoots etc.

4 Clijsters, Kim
6 Stosur, Samantha
8 Dementieva, Elena


2 Zvonareva, Vera
3 Williams, Serena
5 Schiavone, Francesca

4 Schiavone, Francesca
6 Jankovic, Jelena
8 na li


2 Zvonareva, Vera
3 Clijsters, Kim
5 Stosur, Samantha

I hope Sam will be in an easy draw, which is mostly unlikely but i hope it will be
Stosur
Schiavone
Jankovic
Dementieva or Zvonareva

Jorn
Oct 22nd, 2010, 01:02 PM
Stosur
Schiavone
Jankovic
Zvonareva


Will be a hard Draw, Caro or Vera will be in the Group.


Edit: But Sammy and Jelena can't be in same Group...

This is not to do with the race rankings, but the SEWTA rankings. Since Schiavone didnt defend her title Stosur and Jankovic move up 1 rank?

adner
Oct 23rd, 2010, 07:19 AM
The ideal groups for me are:
Wozniacki, Clijsters, Jankovic, Dementieva
Zvonareva, Schiavone, Stosur, Azarenka

Semifinalists: Wozniacki, Clijsters, Zvonareva, Azarenka

Jankovic will lost 650 points next monday ; schiavone 470,
now it depends on the 17th tournament replacing these points losed
according to notes and release of 18th, both of players 17th tournament give 30 pts
it would a waste of time to make an exact situation, but jankovic will surely lost 1 place stosur switching with her,
i am not sure stosur could gain 2 places on next monday


whatever after doha 2010, top 3 place will surely be
1 Wozniacky
2 Zvonareva
3 clisjters


clijsters and Schiavone who have a lot a points to gain as they didn't play Doha 2009,but Schiavone will lost too much points before the masters

williams sisters, S & V, will lost respectively 1500 and 730 pts so to get around 5300 (5355)pts and ~5000 (4985)
i bet serena will stay in the top 5 , but with stosur not that far

Those are the ranks for next week.
it will as all the pts from last yrs tourns have been taken off (Doha pts already off)

Draw is done tomorrow so WTA will have to update their ranks pretty quick....... they might not even count the 50k in St Raphael :o

^^ WTA takes YEC points off week before the YEC begins so the rankings match the race. Stupid WTA.
