Wow, I have nothing less than a Queen! :D YAY! :bounce: But what happens to Serena now? :( :sad:

If Serena doesn't play any other tournament before February 10th, which unfortunately seems likely, her value for the first leg will remain a Queen. The leg value is not based on an average but only on the best result; in Serena's case, the semifinal in Sydney. :)

Ooooh, hmmm why did Kim only earn a J in Sydney? Shouldn't she be a Q? Or why was she a J and not a Q?

The semifinalist in the draw half with seed #1 scores a Q, while the semifinalist in the draw half with seed #2 scores a J.

Serena was in #1 Capriati's half and scored a Q, while Kim was in the same half of #2 Hingis, and so scored only a J.

As the scoring system hasn't changed since the beginning, I've taken it a little bit for granted; with so many new players it's probably a good idea to make a sort of tutorial for this too. I'll post a new thread for the Australian Open and round by round I will explain how values are assigned. :)
