Re: Radwanska has no business making the semis, W1- L2

Sports with an absolute measure like time can have heats with the best times advancing. In a match sport like tennis there would be no point in having groups if they don't determine who advances.

Re: Who will qualify for the YEC.

If they ever give a WC to a comeback player, I hope they require at least one tournament first to see whether she is actually fit to play. 3 beatdowns or a first match retirement would look pretty...

Re: Kuznetsova drama: 'Where am I? Am I playing qualies for real?’ Serena approves

She was #38 after her last 2012 tournament Wimbledon, but that was also far from good enough. The last direct acceptance in Dubai was #29. Three players ranked better than 38 had to play qualies. By...

Re: Has there ever been a GS where no Q/WC'S have drawn a seed 1rd?

The numbers vary. The Australian Open has 16 and 8 for men but 12 and 8 for women.
Kworb is right for 16 and 8. Suppose the 32 seeds are drawn first. The first Q or WC can be drawn in 96 places and...

Re: The No. 1 Thing

Kvitova's 16th tournament is currently 100 pts for an ITF final. Replacing it by 320 would only improve her rank by 220.

Kvitova's 16th and 15th are 125 and 280.

The largest ITF's are 100k+H which give 150, so she could only benefit from one and only improve by 25. She is 125 behind Wozniacki.
If she entered late...
