As the WTA decided to delete points from the last 3-4 weeks of the last season within this week, there are dramatic changes within the top100 ; besides, with Tauziat, Huber ( and Farina ? ) later to be deleted too, there are quite some surprises, especially regarding the important top32 for the seeds at the Australian Open ...

Sandrine is new on no12 or better, if she beats Jenn or not ; all other on pos1-11 are still in the competition ; Seles falls to 10 though, Mauresmo is overtaken by Dokic ( and could well be overtaken by Serena later on ) and Venus takes no3 from Hingis ; those moves are for sure, the rest is speculation right now

13 Farina ( retires ? )<br />14 Tauziat ( retires )<br />15 Maleeva<br />16 Sanchez<br />17 Dementiewa<br />18 Coetzer<br />19 Huber ( retires )<br />20 Tulyagonaova<br />21 Schett<br />22 Montolio<br />23 Raymond<br />24 Grande ( due to Henrieta´s and Tami´s downfall )<br />25 Serna<br />26 Suarez<br />27 Bedanova<br />28 Nagyova ( lost points from Asia )<br />29 Tanasurgan ( lost points from Asia ) <br />30 Torrens-Valero<br />31 Schiavone<br />32 Sugiyama

35 Martinez ( lost points from Advanta and Masters )<br />36 Likhovtseva ( lost points from Leipzig and Masters )

39 Panova ( lost points from Asia )<br />41 Majoli ( lost points from Asia )<br />48 Frazier ( lost points from Quebec and others )<br />53 Rubin ( lost points from Quebec and others )<br />74 Kournikova ( lost points from Masters and others )

Therefore, Elena and Conchita are among those who won´t have a seed so far at the Australian Open ; remember the fact that Conchita Martinez f.e. has to defend some points at Gold Coast in the decisive week for the seeds and isn´t assured of winning so much more points compared to last year that she couldn´t be overtaken by others who have nothing to defend in her "back" of the rankings ; Elena f.e. played Hopman Cup 2001 and could well make some points

Majoli, Kournikova, Rubin, Frazier and Pierce are among those who won´t have a top32-seed even if doing extremely well in the first week of 2002

It seems that we will have some dangerous unseeded players at the AO. This could give some interesting first round matches.

The Aussie will be dangerous enough with the top 10! I mean you figure the following will have a serious shot at the title : Jennifer Capriati, Lindsay Davenport, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Monica Seles, Martina Hingis, Jelena Dokic, Justine Henin and Kimberly Clijsters. Throw Momo in as a dark horse and this tourney could be brutal.

* Testud climbs to no11 if falling to Williams<br />* Williams climbs to no7 if falling to Davenport

* Clijsters remains no5 if falling to Davenport<br />* Davenport becomes no1 with 5050 points if winning it all
