Why is Capriati still at no. 3?! What has she done?!

I haven't been following tennis, and on top of that, I have heard nothing about Jennifer. I know she has accumulated lots of points, but shouldn't she be losing them because she definitely has not matched her success of last year. Does she still not have a title for the year?! Anyway, I am no ranking expert... by far!

...Wait, did she win the Australian?! I forgot who won it. Oh yeah, it was her, right. Anyway, I forgot.

Larrybid is an unknown quantity at this point
Cappy only won one less tournament this year than last year. Look, we all should know by now that the rankings reward players for playing, not necesarily for winning much. Throw a GS win in between lots of mediocre results and voila, #3 ranking. Thats the way the sytem works.

Jen has had a very solid year (apart from since the US Open) and rather than criticise her for being #3 with those results, why not criticise #4-#10 for not doing any better?

Looks like Cappy is the one who benefited from Davy being out, I'm pretty sure she would be #3 had she played all year.

Jennifer had solid and consistant results at the beginning of the year. It was from Wimbeldon onward that she begun having problems.

If you gave her results to someone else, I thnk you could say that, but this year for her is not as "solid" as her previous year. I think this year is a disappointment compared to last year... I mean last year, Jen was bothering me because she was beating all my favorites and I hated to see her name on the same side of the draw as someone I like!! This year, I didn't have that apprehension of "Omigod, she's a threat, my player has no chance and will lose."

Yeah, but 2001 was a fantastic year for her compared to any other year she has played. It was way above her usual standards, so I do think that 2002 has been a 'solid year'. It has been her best year apart from last year since 1993.

Capriati deserves the #3 position. Her losing in the first rounds at some of these events is just like Serena skipping these events - neither get points for it.

Just because she had a few bad losses doesn't discredit her ranking...she has deservedly done much to earn it.

BTW - if not Capriati, then who? Mauresmo had quite a few "bad" losses early in the year...

Justine and Kim as well....

Davenport missed the first 8 months

(ps - i do not care for jennifer, so this is not a biased opinion)
