so Kim, Serena and Venus get a 0 pointer for Rome :shrug: is that because they withdraw ???
I'm sorry, I can't understand anything from this explanation.[...] But those players who didnt have that top 20 rule dont have to apply the P5 rule until either if they get good scores in P5 it will go on as best 16
but if they do badly and its not as best 16 they dont have to count it until the final 2 P5 of year when they HAVE to
Rule is that for top 20 players, their best two results at Premier 5 tournaments (Dubai, Rome, Cincinnati, Montreal/Toronto and Tokyo) must count for their ranking as part of best 16 results.I'm sorry, I can't understand anything from this explanation.
All 6 Czech/Czechoslovakian Top 10 players in history are mentioned in this WTA article published yesterday.what about before Vaidisova?
Thanks for your explanation, Meelis. Now I understand what TBE intended to say. However, I'm still afraid that your interpretation does not agree with the actual WTA rules. Please read the relevant regulation from the 2011 Rulebook (Chapter XIV, Section 2/A/b/i):[...]
New designated top 20 players (who finished inside top 20 at the end of 2010, but not at the end of 2009) don´t have to count any P5 results right now. After Toronto they must have at least one P5 result among best 16 and after Tokyo at least two.
Like you said, if she played in Dubai and will play in Rome too.This provision implies, quite unambigously IMO, that a new Top 20 player must already have one P5 tournament (her best P5 result obtained within last 52 weeks) included in her "best 16" tally - on condition she played in Dubai this year. And, if she plays in Rome this week too, she will have to count two P5 results on her ranking, starting Monday May 16th.
So please back instead all this redundant links one useful link to page 1 of this thread like before, or at least add that helpful link as 1st (or 6th) together with this 5 useless.TheBoiledEgg's updated WTA rankings threads can be found here:
in the Challengers forum.
Σ GS PM P5 Choice Σ Shahar Peer 2,455 820(4) 710(4) 350(2) 565(6) 2,445
After yesterday's QF win You put Aleksandra Krunic on right place and add to her correct number of points, but You forget to change hers #ranking (207 instead 232)
BTW i just notice that couple months ago GM sticky thread with link to this Ranks Update Thread is changed on very useless way. Instead just one link on page 1 here, there is several post by post links where user once opening New Tab (or Window) can't navigate forward from there anywhere.

Thanks...I see it now... but anyway, just one link seems like better solution.you can navigate from the links
in top right corner it says WTA Ranks Thread, clicking that opens the thread.
Just for Your information that GM sticky thread is there since march of 2007 (far before You become member of this forum) on my own initiative! There is some software bag because thread like this is possible only in this "Challenger Tournaments" part of forum, so I ask of forum administration (with big support of many other forum members) to make at least sticky thread on Top of GM subforum because this TBE Ranks Update thread deserve to be marked as WTAWorld's (TennisForum now) most important and useful thread. Also that was very helpful for new members and site guests to be informed that thread like this exist, because for random tennis fan ITF circuit is not so attractive and barely visiting this forum section.:facepalm:
Some people are so rude, you dont know how lucky we are TBE provides this for us.
