[QUOTE=Tennis Fool;74364153][QUOTE=Kzm;74360737]Nope Lucie has 7 titles (Doha, Prague, Forest Hillsx2, Quebec City, Oeiras, Gold Coast) to Karo's 6 titles tally.

Forgot to update for Lucie's last two titles. Corrected.



Should 10 other Slams to = 22.
I think Kvitova should also be ahead of Kuznetsova as Kvitova has 18 titles and Kuznetsova has 17.

And 1 Career Golden Slam, 2 Grand Slams (non-calendar), 1 Other Career Slam; 9 other Slams = 25 or 21 slams? Can't get her correct number of slams out of this.
Should be 10 other Slams to = 22.

Slam draws can fall apart, YEC draws can't.
So you're gonna disregard the pressure that players have to go through to reach the final knowing that a loss would mean they are out of the tournament? It's much easier to win three matches when you've lost two than winning 6 straight matches back-to-back.

You do know that your thing is extremely flawed right? Like how can the YEC be put into the same category as an international title. It really doesn't make sense.

And Puig being ranked so high

Puig too high. I know she won the Olympics, but has done little else.

Interesting race at the bottom of the list. Will Dominika and Karo go higher? Will Eugenie return to the list? Will someone else cause another change?

oh, nevermind, I see you made an edit to fit your current agenda.

Updated.

Since the last update, Karo Pliskova reached a career high ranking of #5. With the win in Cincinnati, she now has one extra title over her countrywoman Lucie, and leapfrogs past her on the list.

Domi's winning the YEC also gets her a new career high ranking of #5. Her greater number of titles leapfrogs her over both Karo Pliskova and Lucie Safarova, and bumps Eugenie Bouchard down to #21.

Interesting race at the bottom of the list. Will Dominika and Karo go higher? Will Eugenie return to the list? Will someone else cause another change?
