Ok, so she's not going to Singapur as she has stated and WTA has erased her name from RACE ranking; I have been thinking and I see it as a lack of respecto towards Serena, but maybe it is just me... So I wanted to make a poll!!!

Is it fair? Just Yes or No options, no middle choices in this one :p

well i can imagine new WTA CLEO during Singapor ceremony saying 'here we are, the best 8 tennis players of this season all of them are right here sending best wishes to semi retired GOAT Serena' xd

can u imagine WTA Finals without Serena who won 3 GS this year and still calling this tournament of the best players ? xd lol

Yep, that is something pretty clear for me :lol: ;)

But as soon as I saw the ranking this morning something just clicked in my head; I want to be sure about if I am the only psycho thinking this way or if I am not alone about it :p

I don't think it's a good idea but nothing wrong to remove her. That is the "Road to Singapore" Leaderboard (instead of calling it a ranking) so removing Serena if she is not coming is reasonable. The better idea might be removing Serena in the wtafinals.com one but keep her in the leaderboard in the wtatennis.com. I guess they removed her so that people won't be confused about who's going to Singapore but Maria wasn't removed in 2013 though (checked with the web archive thing). Up to you if you think Serena was disrespected.

Serena confirmed she won't be there :shrug:'

She's the one disrespecting the WTA, so...

No need to put her there, it just confuses people who are interested in looking which players got a chance of playing there.

What? She's the one showing a lack of respect towards the WTA for withdrawing from Singapore for no valid reason :shrug: :help:

People don't have life here, do you have bigger things to do in life or you're sitting and posting stupid threads?

Serena is out of the Race by her own volition.
Why on earth would they list any player who has withdrawn?
Her WTA ranking is irrelevant to the Race.
This does not change her WTA ranking or #1 status.

Since when does any tournament keep a player on the roster after she has officially withdrawn?
It makes no sense.

I like a clear and present list. I remember Li Na and Bartoli (whom I both loved) being in the rankings for months after their retirements and it annoyed me. It doesn't give a clear view of the current situation. If Serena would still be in it, someone else will be nr. 9 on the list but really nr. 8, that's annoying. Respect has nothing to do with it, clarity has.

Lists are like porn to me.
