Serena wins 2014 USO Series

From Ben Rothenberg's twitter

Quote:
With Kerber losing tonight it appears* Serena clinched first place in 2014 US Open Series.

*Math more complex this year. But yes, she has.
I am confused... Aga is still in Cincy and only 15 points behind Rena?

Edit: They have doubled Angie and Renas points for winning points at 3 events. Aggie played 3 events but did not win any at Stanford. I now understand

Re: Serena wins 2014 USO Series

How? Radwanska could end up with 200 points from the Montréal-Cincinnati double.

EDIT : You double your points if you play three or more events.

The OP is assuming:
1/ Aga will lose tomorrow to Wozniacki
2/ Serena will beat Jankovic.

Re: Serena wins 2014 USO Series

Nope, Serena already won it. The doubling thing must be a new thing this year though.

Im not assuming anything. Im simply quoting a generally well informed tennis journalist.

As I said I am confused.

THAT'S all you need to do to win the US Open series? Hell,there are some players just coming back this week. No wonder Serena plays 3 tournaments...

Re: Serena wins 2014 USO Series

Kerber is now in 2nd place with a Premier 700 final and two Premier 5s 3R.

What's the bonus for 2nd and 3rd place?
Second place gets 500K if she wins and third place gets 250K, is that it?

Re: Serena wins 2014 USO Series

Wozniacki can still win it, no?

Let's say she wins both Cincinnati and New Haven. That's 100 pts + 70 pts. She played a third USO Series tournament (Montréal/ 25 points). Grand total of 195 points which she doubles due to the 3 tournaments rule = 390.

Or you star double the points only after you've won points in three tournaments? So Wozniacki could only double her New Haven points?

Re: Serena wins 2014 USO Series

Oh my, they double points for people who play 3?

She'll probably win Cinci and deserve it, but it's a crazy addition.

Re: Serena wins 2014 USO Series

I wonder if the players were aware of that "three tournaments/double the points" rule. Some may be pissed.

Re: Serena wins 2014 USO Series

I bet a lot of the players who play 3/4 or 4/4 weeks before the open have 0 chance of winning it anyway. Just Serena.
