Why is Hingis still in the rankings?

When Kim retired, she disappeared immediatly from the rankings. Hingis still is in it. Why? I thought you only had to announce it officially and your name was erased....

Re: Why is Hingis still in the rankings?

You have to officially ask WTA to be taken off the rankings. I guess she hasn't gotten around to that yet (if she intends to do it anyway - she can just let her ranking drop normally if she wants).

Re: Why is Hingis still in the rankings?

ranking would not be taken out for 1 year, unless the player requested to do so. at least that's what i know.

Re: Why is Hingis still in the rankings?

I also thought she would lose the 90 ranking points from wimbly, and have to give back the prize money. Or is that not until after the tribunal?

She has to be proven guilty before that would happen, yeah.

Re: Why is Hingis still in the rankings?

why would a player even CARE if her name is removed from the rankings ? Why fill out paperwork and requests when you can just go on with your life and let your name fall off gradually ?

Re: Why is Hingis still in the rankings?

She has change her mind, now she wants to try to clear her name...

But it a 'wierd' case, why so many month before we get to know about that Wimby test, and she even herself had to tell the press...

Re: Why is Hingis still in the rankings?

Because Hingis still has an ego.
Being ranked in the top 30 with all the things that happened to her this year is a triumph.

She's retired. If her ranking is still there in March though, then we might have to look at this topic again, just like it was looked when Lindsay retired and still had her ranking around.

How can they do that if nothing is proven?

Yes, it's up to the player. Both Kimmie and Graf asked to have their names removed.
