This is why such recalculations donīt mean much. Had quality points been there this year, then rankings and draws would have been completely different. Itīs impossible to tell, how the year end rankings would have been looked like, as itīs impossible to retroactively redo the draws and replay matches that were never played. If WTA ever should bring quality points back, then for sure they would not recalculate the past results.
