Lowest Average Ranking of Opponents Beaten En Route to a Title

Does anyone know the lowest average ranking of opponents that a player has beaten en route to a WTA title?

Should La Borz beat Dulgheru tomorrow, her opponents' average ranking in Kuala Lumpur will have been #128 (rounding up). This has to be some sort of record.

Discuss.

You could probably find something in the Tashkent/Forest Hill days

Re: Lowest Average Ranking of Opponents Beaten En Route to a Title

Barthel- Bastad 2014

Average ranking 146.4

Although to be fair the match quality was even worse.

Re: Lowest Average Ranking of Opponents Beaten En Route to a Title

Avg is useless.It can be in hundreds even if you beat #1 and #2 ranked players in the finals and semis respectively.

I don´t think you qualify for the easiest path, if there is a top 50 player in your way, and some lowly ranked outliners skew the average.

I agree.

That's why it is important to actually see the rankings that went into the average, which is how I have been posting them. The Bogota examples show that it actually was a weak draw, whereas the Monterrey one is fine.

It is also probably worth mentioning the players too, whether or not they are coming back from injury or something... sometimes they can even be unranked/in the hundreds but playing top 20 tennis.

And Martic (#119) gave her a walkover in the SF, which makes this WTA title run even less impressive (4 wins, highest ranked 98).

Yeah, I questioned whether or not I should include her in the calculation but I kept it anyway since that would have been the path to the title had she played the match.

Good question. Wouldn't it be more relevant if it were only for grand slams?

Forest Hill was held from 2004 to 2008 and the lowest direct entry was Pastikova (#91) in 2005. You couldn't get in if you weren't a top 75 player in all other years (16 players draw).
