is there more then one tournament coming off this week.....

This is the rankings after this weeks points have been taken off

1. Capriati 4735<br />2. Davenport 4501<br />3. Venus 4128<br />4. Hingis 3877<br />5. Clijsters 3032<br />6. Henin 2899<br />7. Mauresmo 2711<br />8. Dokic 2683<br />9. Serena 2501<br />10. Seles 2306<br />11. Shaughnessy 1813<br />12. Testud 1794<br />13. Tauziat 1699<br />14. Farina-Elia 1692<br />15. Dementieva 1522<br />16. Maleeva 1519<br />17. Huber 1442<br />18. Coetzer 1420<br />19. Arantxa 1416<br />20. Tulyganova 1204

What I'm confused about is Hingis is losing 784!!!!<br />Davenport 454!!!!<br />Kim 300 odd!!!<br />Capriati 227!!!

So what is the story?, is there some sort of mistake or is there a combination of tournaments coming off?

i think it's a combination of three or four tournaments coming off: Quebec, Leipzig, Philadelphia and the Chase points.

the players voted for this to happen as it would give a more auitable end of year rank or else two CHAMPS points would have been on the rankings.

I'm all for it <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Yeah..thats great to hear TBE....I was just a bit shocked trying to work it all out first.

One thing if Martina is fit in Jan, she will be the number 4 seed and common sense will tell anyone, 1-4 has all the same advantages....

The other thing it is good to see all the players agree on something for a change <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> ...then maybe they do all the time and it is, us, the fans that have no idea <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

<br />The good thing is Jenn, who was dominate at the start of the year is up against Lindsay the dominate player at the moment and the winner will take out the number 1 spot.

Just aa side note, It would be nice if Venus was here, but she isn't, injuries aside, there were still more tournaments she could of played, she chose not too, so she is not an equation as far as number 1 goes.....

<br />Jenn/Lindsay....the true number 1 will come out in this tournament <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I contacted the WTA on that months ago because I saw this coming ...

The first of the 2 Asian events is deleted as well ( => look at Farina losing points as well )

It will be very very tough regarding the no1 because both Jenn and Linsay will be at 17 events now after the Chase whereas Hingis is at 18 events and with her 18th result being 2 points and her total points being at 3944 after the Chase - that will be hard for her to build up her usual standard of an 18th event of 100+ => her advantage for not being overtaken in recent years

Jenn and Lindsay are sooo close that it´s hard to predict what will happen ...

Guess what? It'll be rather easy for Venus to improve her ranking if she wanted to as she has 12 tournaments and 4128 points. Just another 2 tournament wins and she could be it!

Past tense Williams _Rulez. It WOULD HAVE been easy for Venus to pick up points HAD she played after the US Open. Starting in January, she has points to defend like everyone else. She only gains if she plays the full 17-which she had the chance to do this year, being uninjured most of it, unlike 2000. Unless Venus wins Australia, Davenport is the most likely future #1.
