The ranking system is such a big mess. One big tournament win can pretty much guarantee someone a top 20 ranking for a year these days. Winners just get too many points.
so true LOL The biggest irony of them all is that the current Nr.2 (miss Sunshine) will probably be on her way out of Top 10 after US OpenThat's how big of a mess WTA is nowadays - untill Maria takes over that is of course
Rankings is so messed up it's ridicoulous. What I don't understand is how Sveta is ranked above Maria.
Even Aga is ranked above Masha Weird cuz she's just beaten her twice, Maria is going up the rankings so slowly, she's played so well since strasbourg (well at least outside GS's) and she's only gone up a few spots..
