Susan Mascarin is not ranked this week according to wtatennis (she was #47 last update and will be 49 next time). She should probably be #48 which is given to Gretchen Magers (Rush). Having Mascarin at #48 seems likely because Gretchen Magers (Rush) doesn't have a ranking at all next week (still according to wtatennis). I don't even think she had played 6 tournaments at this time.

Louise Allen and Jennifer Mundel-Reinbold are both ranked #76 (not an error per se).

Betty Stove was #46 a week ago but doesn't have a singles ranking this week or ever again according to wtatennis. She hadn't played at all in 1983 but she did play in England in June (seeded in Birmingham). But I'm not sure wheter her absence in the rankings is an error. I guess she retired from singles pro tennis around that time, and she isn't ranked on the official year end 1983 rankings.

Update 2019-04-14: Rosie Casals is added at pos. 77.

For some strange reason, a lot of players had their last presence in wtatennis' ranking history on 04 July 1983. Thesee players are (with their rank at the time): Duk Hee Lee (79), Lucia Romanov (103), Kate Latham (96), Dana Gilbert (69), Barbara Hallquist (74), Barbara Jordan (110), Paula Smith (97), Lena Sandin (92). On the other hand, a lot of new names appear for the first time this week: Julie Harrington, Kim Shaefer, Rosie Casals, Gretchen Magers (Rush), and Beverly Mould, although the latter didn't quite make it into top 100 yet.

Update 2019-04-14: Petra Jauch Delhees is likely the missing #61.

Re: Project: WTA weekly rankings since 1983

Sorry if anyone notices some weird posts and deletions but I'm trying to make it cleaner.

The thread will be really long, so I've made links to each week of 1983 in post #3. The idea is that post #1 will contain links to each year (1983, 1984 and so on). The post with the first rankings of that year will then contain links to each week. See post#3 for an example.

The project is still in the making though. And I may mess things up every now and then as I copy and paste with several tabs open.

Re: Project: WTA weekly rankings since 1983

Just FYI: Elizabeth (Sayers) Smylie and Elizabeth Minter are two different players. Elizabeth Minter was Anne (Minter) Harris' sister and won the U.S. Open Juniors in 1983. Smylie reached the top 20 in singles in 1987 (I believe) and was a top doubles player. Both were Australian, however.

Re: Project: WTA weekly rankings since 1983

I don’t understand how Evonne could possibly be ranked number 16 (!) in September 1983? She had barely played and if memory serves correct her only result that stands out was the runner up to Martina in Sydney fall 1982, having beaten The Nun in the semis? Did Evonne receive a ton of free points when she was invited to play the slims finale earlier in the year (and Pam shat her panties in a fit of rage)?

Thanks. I seem to have mixed it up with the Aussie Elizabeths. I should have figured considering the 4 very different surnames Minter, Harris, Sayers, Smylie.

Thanks a lot. It corresponds almost with the rankings I have retrieved from wtatennis. The only difference is the Goolagong #1 issue I've mentioned earlier. It's nice to have an official source to compare with in order to see how reliable my approach is. I've done all 1983 now and plan to post Nov 7 later today. It would be nice to have your Nov 7 list in the thread for reference.

I have a few official rankings myself - with points - and will also post these when I get as far. Maybe I will attach them as scanned images for reference.
