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)?
The 1983 rankings is a mystery to me (how they worked in terms of points). But the Sydney final must have been the main reason for her being ranked so high. Because she dropped from #22 to #37 the 5th of December when her Sydney points were removed.

WTA's ranking history has Goolagong at #1 this week but it's pretty obvious she should be #16 as no other player has that rank. This also fits nicely with her ranking history the previous and next weeks (#17 and 18).

Rollo has posted a top 50 from September 12, 1983 (source: World Tennis Magazine, November 1983 issue, page 83). His list confirms the Top 50 retrieved from wtatennis except Goolagong at #1, of course. She's #16.

Update 2019-04-14: Before this update the list contained 81 of the top 100 players plus 5 correct guesses (a total of 86 players). Now the list contains the full top 100 confirmed from released lists.

Update 2019-04-14: Petra Jauch Delhees is likely the missing #59. She's been ranked around #60 very consistently during those weeks for which we have the full rankings. And she's actually moving upwards towards the end of the year. But of course the #63 spot is also available this week, so I can't say for sure since it's so close.

Wtatennis has both Laura Arraya and Terry Phelps at position 53. Arraya is in fact #51. I'm not posting the incomplete list from wtatennis since we have the full original released rankings (Arraya/Phelps is the only error this week apart from missing players). I may add points later (I'll let you know in OP).

I don't know why Billie Jean King is off the list. She was #12 a fortnight ago, and she's also on the next official rankings at #13 (19 December). Strange.

EDIT: Rollo has since explained that Billie Jean King only had 5 tournaments, which is the reason for her removal from the rankings this week.

Update 2019-04-17: Now 99 of the top 100 are confirmed (and the last one estimated with almost 100% certainty). Before the update only 73 players were listed. Source: wtatennis (73 players) and Tennis de France (top 96).

Amy Holton's position is based on the Q-seeds at Ginny of Colorado, January 16 (seed, name, rank):
(1) Marie-Christine Calleja, 83
(2) Pascale Paradis-Mangon, 84
(3) Kate Latham, 90
(4) Susan Mascarin, 91
(5) Claudia Monteiro, 93
(6) Sabina Simmonds, 95
(7) Amy Holton, ?
(8) Anne Harris (Minter), 99

As #97 is the only availble spot between 95 and 99 it must be Holton's position.

Update 2019-04-17: Holladay's position (#88) is mentioned in a newspaper article that also mentions (correctly) that she'll be #63 the next update. So this is trustworthy. Russell at #55 is mentioned in another article. Purdy is #53 based on seeds at Indianapolis. Delhees @ #49 is my own estimate.

We also know, based on seeds and Q-seeds at Indianapolis, January 30, and Q-seeds at Virginia Slims of Chicago, February 6, that:

Leigh Thompson is #57, 59 or 60
Catrin Jexell 64-67
Claudia Monteiro 89 or better
Marcela Skuherska 93-96

Peanut Louie is making some strange movements in the rankings: #66, 106, 79, and 116 at 4 consecutive rankings. EDIT 2019-04-17: Seems possible, perhaps even likely based on results!

Update 2019-04-17: The list has been updated using Tennis de France's list (dated 18 February, but there's no doubt it's the 06 February rankings). Before the update only 76 of the top 100 players were listed. Now we have the full top 100 plus some.

Anne Smith and Wendy White are both ranked #32 at wtatennis, but I'm sure this updated list is now correct. Rollo has posted another top 50 list from World Tennis with Anne Smith at #31, Tanvier at #32, Wendy White at #33, but that list has some other issues as Rollo points out. It all becomes clear when we compare the lists.

     1          =         44
     2          =         40
    3-5         =         30
    6-8         =         20
    9-11        =         15

  101-150       =         0.5
  151-200       =         0.25
- Average ranking system (in use in some form until and including 1996).
- Total points are made up of round points + bonus points.
- Points are discounted after 26 weeks (divided by 2), and drop off completely after 52 weeks.
- Average is total points (some discounted) divided by # of tournaments (12 is minimum divisor).
- 6 tournaments needed to get a ranking.

Lori Mcneil's top 100 debut.

Update 2019-04-19: Point tables added at the top of the post. Now the full top 100 is listed; before it was 77 players. The full official list is available here.

Wtatennis has Jill Hetherington at pos. 85. That's an error; she's #185 on the official list.

The new points system - in use from 05 March 1984 - was quite a simplification compared to what had been in use until then. For instance, the old rankings had a column named "number of matches" that was part of the formula for calculating points. This is gone now.

The first released ranking using the new system was done by recalculating the player's points using the new system a year back. This caused some significant changes in the rankings from 20 February to 05 March because there was little correspondence between the former and the new system.

Kathy Jordan, for instance, moved from #12 to #7 although the only change in her results was that a 50K semifinal (and three won matches) dropped off and was replaced by a 1st round loss! Likewise, Lisa Bonder moved from #28 to #16 by winning one 1st round match against Sherry Acker at a 150K in the week of 20 February 1984. Evonne Goolagong Cawley, on the other hand, dropped from #36 to #96 while her match history didn't change at all (her drop, of course, happened because of the diminishing of points older than 26 weeks). There were no changes in top 4 though, and I can imagine WTA putting some effort into analysing the outcome of the new system in order to not cause any 'injustice' towards the top players?
