Jelena's ranking has fallen drastically due to her play this year, going from the #5 seed at the Open last year to something like #17 probably this year. Why hasn't Hantuchova's ranking taken the same plummet? Honestly, I don't remember Hantuchova doing much of anything besides winning Indian Wells, and that was last year. Did she ever get far in any other tournaments? And it's obvious she has played much worse this year, barely winning matches (her record is something like 17-16!!!) - so why is she still #8?

Thanks for your explanations :)

she got to the 3rd round at AO last year, then reached the quarters of all the other slams and she did quite well in the indoor season last year. this year she made 4th round of AO which has kept her afloat.

Let's face it; Jelena had a strong 2002.

Although Jelena is in a bit of a funk to her standards, I believe she is sitting prettier than Hantuchova in the long run, despite Dani being ranked higher. Dokic appears healthy. Both play too much, period.

Actually, IIRC, Hantuchova made the quarters at the AO this year--which was her third consecutive GS QF. Se also has the Porsche Grand Prix final from Oct. 2002 on her ranking, and I believe a SF at the Swisscom as well. That's a fair number of points to defend in the coming months.
