What are your fave's best 17 results? Not just in one year, but if they combined their best 17 from all seasons. (With the catch that the tournaments have to be active.) It would be interesting to see, especially for those players not among the top 5. (Hingis, for example, has won more than 17 different events, including 3 slams, the yearend championships, and all 9 Tier I's. So there'd be no mystery there.) Here are Chanda's (by current round points):
Australian Open- SF- 234
Linz- W- 200
Miami- F- 182
Quebec City- W- 155
Los Angeles- F- 140
Eastbourne- F- 140
Scottsdale*- F- 140
Roland Garros- QF- 130
Indian Wells- SF- 117
Zurich- SF- 117
Filderstadt- SF- 90
Hobart- W- 80
US Open- 3r- 72
Oklahoma City- SF- 71
Birmingham- SF- 71
Madrid- SF- 71
Charleston- QF- 65
________________________
Total round points- 2075

This is without quality points, which could be anywhere from 40% to 100% or more of that total.

So, how many RP's would your faves rack up in their best 17s?

(*Note: Chanda did not reach a final of this particular Scottsdale tourney, but it used to be in Chicago, and she was a finalist there. She was also a finalist in the old Phoenix tournament, so I combined them for this result. So there. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">)

Brian, you always think of the greatest threads!

For Martina:

Australian Open - W - 520
Roland Garros - W - 520
Wimbledon - W - 520
U.S. Open - W - 520
Championships - W - 390
Tokyo (Toray) - W - 260
Indian Wells - W - 260
Miami - W - 260
Charleston - W - 260
Canadian Open - W - 260
Sydney - W - 200
Paris (GdF) - W - 200
Amelia Island - W - 200
Eastbourne - W - 200
Stanford - W - 200
Manhattan Beach - W - 200
Filderstadt - W - 200

Total: 5170

A couple of sidenotes:
* When Martina won the Family Circle Cup, it was still be played in Hilton Head Island. The Bank of the West Classic was previously held in Oakland, Calif.

* A couple of the tournaments used to be Tier I events previously when Martina won them - for example, Amelia Island was once a Tier I; as was Chicago (now held in Scottsdale).

* Also worth mentioning, a couple of the current top tournaments used to be weak Tier III events previously, most notably the Italian & Germany Opens.

Martina HINGIS:

Australian Open W = 520
Wimbledon W = 520
US Open W = 520
Chase Champs W = 390
Roland Garros F = 364
9 x Tier 1's W = 9 x 260 = 2340
3 x Tier 2's (syd,fild,ham) = 3 x 200 = 600

TOTAL = 5254

Well, i think that's right........correct me if wrong!

If Martina had won RG, it would be 5410 - the maximum possible! She's pretty darn close to that max now! <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> Well Done Martina!!!!

LOL... Venus has only played these tournaments in her life, I can't find more than 15... sorry <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> Unless Venus did play in Moscow before. However, her Olympics gold medal which is worthless is not counted, neither is her Grand Slam Cup victory, which doesn't exist anymore. She was a finalist at Hannover, but I have no idea where the tournament has moved to. I think it has disappeared... Well, I don't think I'll do Serena's.... I think I'll be shocked at little she has played.
