Some handy features of the new ranking lists since 05 March 1984 are the two columns "Next to be discounted" and "Next to drop off". These columns make it's relatively easy to see or calculate how many points the players have earned at each tournament (or for each 2-week period if they have played in both weeks). This info is not available at wta.com for 1984. The only problem is that we don't have too many of these official lists.
Here is an excerpt of the 05 March 1984 list:
Let's have a look at Martina Navratilova's "Next to drop off" points (115). These are the points that are older than 52 weeks at the next update (19 March). Navratilova only played one tournament in that timeframe of 1983, the $150,000 Virginia Slims of Dallas, March 7-13. We know therefore that she earned 230 points at that tournament. It's 2 times 115 because the points were divided by 2 after 26 weeks.
Test: Navratilova won the title. This is worth 150 points (see tables in my previous post).
She defeated (rankings): Sue Barker (53), Ann Kiyomura (33), Hana Mandlikova (8), Bettina Bunge (9), Chris Evert (2). This is worth 2 + 3 + 20 + 15 + 40 = 80 bonus points.
Total points: 150 + 80 = 230 points
Pascale Paradis' "Next to be discounted" points are 55.5. These are the points that will become 26 weeks old and must be divided by 2 at the next update. In Paradis' case it is her points from US Open 1983.
Test: Paradis reached R16, which is worth 38 round points.
She defeated (rankings): Dianne Fromholtz (67), Sabrina Goles (115), Andrea Temesvari (10). This is worth 2 + 0.5 + 15 = 17.5 bonus points.
Total points: 38 + 17.5 = 55.5 points
I have to stress though, that there are cases where the points don't seem to add up correctly.
