Re: Top100 players by country since the beginning of the wta ranking

btw, I've just noticed that I've forgotten to add Hong Kong China (Patricia Hy was ranked 58th at her best in 1987 before representing Canada). Since the country is considered as a nation in Fed Cup (same case for Puerto Rico) I've added it and updated previous posts.

I've read it as well in the "retired players" thread in GM but she still has a ranking. My previous post was just an exhaustive extract of the potential new countries.

We may have to wait for quite a long time before the addition of a new country, the next contenders are:

Re: Top100 players by country since the beginning of the wta ranking

Great list Eric. Comparing the list for the German players I am missing some names.

Meike Babel has reached a CHR of #27 in 1995. This is based on her LinkedIn profile:

https://www.linkedin.com/in/meikebabel

The WTA site does not provide a CHR but is listing her with a YE ranking of #32 in 1995:

Players | WTA Tennis English

Katja Ebbinghaus has reached a YE ranking of #19 in 1977:

http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...meric_1977.pdf

Iris Riedel-Kuehn has reached a YE ranking of #28 in 1975:

http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...meric_1975.pdf

Myriam Schropp (now Kende) has reached at least a CHR of #54 in 1984 (YE ranking):

http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...meric_1984.pdf

Based on this site she even reached a CHR of #42 in April 1985:

Myriam Schropp et Gabriela Dinu - Le blog des archives du tennis feminin

@Binoxal : It seems that you are the owner of this site. Do you have any further information about this?

Heidi Eisterlehner reached a YE ranking #65 in 1976:

http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...meric_1976.pdf

Andrea Betzner is listed in the initial list of the German ranking with a position of #91. This is nowhere to be found otherwise.

@Kzm :
Do you have any further information about this? You have asked only about Ebbinghaus in this thread but not about Betzner.

@Binoxal :
The aforementioned blog is showing her with a CHR of #96:

Bettina Bunge et Andrea Betzner - Le blog des archives du tennis feminin

Do you have any further information about that?

Petra Keppeler (now Feucht) has reached a YE ranking of #92 in 1985:

http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...meric_1985.pdf





@janko :
Do you have any other source for the CHR of Katja Ebbinghaus? I assume this is based on the thread in the German subforum. I had a discussion with KZM regarding the credibility about this source which is an article about her daughter where Ebbinghaus was mentioned with a CHR of #15:

Katja Blöcker (14), UHC, Deutsche Jugend-Meisterin im Tennis : Mit spielerischer Leichtigkeit zum Sieg! | MOPO.de

The only official source would be the YE WTA ranking as of 1977 where Ebbinghaus is listed at position #19:

This is what I posted in the top 30 thread...

I wrote a little program, helping to find the career high ranking, this is the top 50 list(485 players in total):
the very left column is the date when player reached the highest ranking for the first time


you can find the top 50, top 100 here

it's possible to find any player's career high ranking, as long as their infos are recorded right on official website

this is the file which includes 7,000+ players single highest ranking out side of top 100

...
actually I was searching Hallquist and found this thread

reading data from wta official website, I found many errors(not likely the type error) relating to the single's highest rank. From wtatennis.com, three obvious ones I found in the first place are:
Tracy Austin's career high ranking is 4
Virginia Wade's career high ranking is 33
Billie Jean King's career high ranking is 8

basically, they typed "random" dates and rankings for those 60s & 70s players
I cleared some mistakes(20-30) according to wta 12 mediaguide and some other web sources

but I think there're still many errors about 60s and 70s players, it's only safe to say, they definitely reached top 100...

and I'm sure there're some players(although very few) should be included in this list, cause some players' records are not complete(no highest ranking) from official website

well, data of players who's prime was in 80s or later seems correct

PS: # of top 50 and top 100 by country



# of top 50 players by country

boxplot for top 50

I ve read the information about Ivana Madruga s ranking of 14 twice:

- In a book ("Tennis 1980" or something like that) found in a bookshop a long time ago.

+ this blog: Tenistas Argentinas: Perfiles

Kristien Shaw is born Kemmer, I think the right order should be Kemmer-Shaw.
