can anyone explain it to me? why is she ranked 30? why did she fall from 29 to 30 after rome? the eurosport commentator said she would be ranked 25 if she beats mauresmo. :confused:

Simply put, she gained about 40 points I guess (just at a quick glance...not sure about her best 17 & all that), which wasn't enough to catch anyone in front of her, and she fell back 1 because Medina Garrigues gained QF points and passed her. Not sure why the commentator said that.

maybe the commentator thought we were still in the days where beating a highly ranked player actually meant something for your ranking :eek:

lol, yeah um sam was defending 2nd rnd points which ment she only gained 25 poins but with anabels qf place, sam mvd down 1 as anabel was below her in rankings befre this tourny so im guessing did everyone else and even with th 3rd rnd points she wouldnt of moved up at all being nt enough points.

How is Sam serving these days? Haven't seen her play since last summer against Davenport where she really served like a fiend and really had her chances. It seems to me if she serves like that consistently and with some great net play, she should really gain some points at Wimby and maybe on the summer hardcourts too.

Sams serve (percentage) was terrible for a lot of the start of the season. it seems to be improving now though. great results for sam on clay hopefully she can break her poor roland garros history and win a few matches.
