Also Kaia Kanepi doesnt look like shes defending her points. She won Brisbane last year so will loose 470 points
19 Kaia Kanepi 1905 (-470 = 1435)
22 Jelena Jankovic 1751 (-120 = 1631)
23 Yanina Wickmayer 1680
24 Venus Williams 1650
Even if Venus is bypassed by Pavlyuchenkova and Zakapolova, it doesnt matter, she will still be seeded 24
No, Jankovic isn't losing any points. She's still at 1751. The ranking is a best-16 system, and losing Brisbane points didn't have any effect on her.
Jankovic's ranking is:
AO (280) + RG (100) + Wimbledon (5) + USO (160) + IW (5) + Miami (5) + Madrid (5) + Beijing (140) + Tokyo (70) + Doha (1)
Those are all the mandatory events factored into her ranking. 4 slams, 4 premier mandatories, and Jankovic's best two Premier 5 results. 10 events in total.
Jankovic's next best 6 results are/were:
Dubai (200) + Birmingham (200) + Dallas (200) + Kuala Lumpur (130) + Copenhagen (130) + Brisbane (120)
Jankovic's 17th best result was San Diego (120), which replaced her Brisbane points for a net loss of zero.
