can someone please explain to me why patty schnyder is the 4th next in when she is ranked 17th in the world and has been committed to the tournaments since the beginning of the year accordng to her website. she is higher than maleeva, smashnova, martinez, sanchez, coetzer. please do not tell me this is that stupid gold exemption thing! if so what is the point of trying to improve your ranking? she better be given a wild card!
