<br />The # of points they have to defend in 2002 is pointless in this debate..
Both Martina and Jennifer will start the year with zero points, <br />The points from 2001 are there to determine seeding for tournaments through out 2002..
So basically everyone starts the new year with No points, so yes Jennifer has more points to defend than Martina, but they are actually starting 2002 with the same # of points.. The only advantage jennifer has, it that she should get the advantage of better draws (but's that really only on paper) when talking about 2 players inside the top 4..
