Seems like the tennis women's ranking is always changing since Henin left tennis and Maria had her arm problem. The tennis ranking is not yet stabilized, i think it might be coz the tennis women's tennis is not as good as it was before, that's why i think Maria Sharapova has a great chance to be the best when she'll be back!! tought there are some tennis women having a "come back"... Any how we're wating for Masha!!!!!!!!

You think that's bad?  When she loses the points from Amelia Island (550), she'll drop to at least 53 in the rankings.  And, after the Family Circle points are deducted (12 months elapsed), she will drop to 60.


If she keeps this up, she'll soon have to be playing Qualifying rounds to get into a tournament.  She's already out of the tournament seedings.

It is what it is, Philli. Consider the clutch of Russians (now + Belarusian) who contend with sisters & Serbs in the top ten while awaiting "her" return: How are Kuzi & Nadia still up there, hunh? Because they keeping on playing. Despite further loading towards the Slams, that's still what rankings are all about--who's almost always there and often picking up those round of 16, quarterfinal & semifinal finishes that the pundits disdain. (JJ can do that and Ana has done so and probably will again. The sisters can't. As a result, blow it bad at one major or a couple of premires and they can plunge a thousand points abruptly.)


Again you apply a double standard. Tati Golovin has been out so long, she's sunk to a ranking of 805! [:O] Yet, you would hardly want to contend to the Roland Garros crowd that Tati isn't inherently at least a top-twenty player. They'd laugh you outta the place. Maria's Cali neighbor Davenport accords Masha the proper respect and Lindsay really oughta know about this. [H]

Yes Paul, everything you say is correct.  What I'm saying is that it only makes the comeback to her comeback that much more difficult.  Not getting a first round bye means one extra match. Having to qualify means 3 extra matches. 


Shes walking a thin line...as always...with her fitness. She's never been 'That' strong to hold it together for an entire tournament unless she got a first round bye and a couple of easy lower ranked players in rounds 2 and 3...... and that was in the old days, 2005 and 2006.


Since 2007 she could hardly  get by the lower ranked players and into the later rounds.


Now, if you want to see her training in Phoenix, Arizona...like she said...Dont go there.. She's in Florida doing promotion work Cole Haan in Coral Gables, Florida and giving autographs at Miami.  


She's living in a dream world.

Maria has been candid about the stamina issue:


"I think the hump I've got to get through right now is to put two weeks of playing two, three sets every single day, for two weeks and feeling great, 100 percent. Right now I am able to do maybe three days, four days and then I have to take it easy on the fifth. Obviously that's not the way to go about a tournament in singles, so that's what I am working up to right now and whenever that comes, that's when I'll be playing singles."


I might recommend a Croatian fitness trainer. [;)] Neither should she fret bulking up. The emergence of various women athletes as major sex symbols suggests the emaciated model look is a bit passe, anyway.


But I think making sure to get every last drop of endorsement milk is simply good fiscal sense. Remember I what said to you a couple of years ago on the Brit Eurosport forum: the "superstar" windfall comes to few and only "once in a blue moon". It lasts only a few years & never comes again. Use it or lose it. Worth it? What would you sacrifice for upwards of $100,000,000?


We're at the end of that time. Once recovered, she's at liberty--if she's inclined--to be a greater player than she could be for the last five years. [H]

No need to be number 1.


Want to see Maria healthy back.


Results will come sooner or later.


Maria is still young enough, time is with her.


Still yet she accomplished more then other players at this age.

It's so funny that you think she will have to play qualis of a tournament, when she would get a MD WC whenever she wants. 

You will be always be an idiot.

These rankings is just a standard made to make it easier for the wta and the tournaments to make some sorts of precise seedings, it all depends on how you look at it.


Last year, when Maria was still in the top ten, she and Venus had only played 9 respectively 11 tournaments, but both of them was in the top ten. So was Jankovic, Ivanovic and Dementieva, all of which had played around or more than 20 tournaments, just to be in the top ten. So, actually if you take a good look at it, this means that Maria and Venus generate more points in average playing around 10 tournaments pr.year than the other players i mentioned, which just prove my point. When it comes to generating points Maria is doing way better than most players in the rankings, so Philli you don´t have to have any sleepless nights over Marias rankings, she´s doing fine by herself.


Have a great day everyone, and as allways a lot of positive vibes to Maria and her progression on court.

Dont feel so bad, After the points come off from Amelia Island (12 months elapsed), she could well drop to 50 in the rankings.

Actually only to 40th, I think. [^o)] Philli, what time is it in Germany? We're debating the time differential in Other Tournaments.

No maria will drop to around 50 in the rankings (49,51 etc). 550 pts will be deducted from her 1730pts from winning amelia island last year.


and  then  220pts from charleston( if she doesnt choose to play that), and then fall to 960 pts!!!! with a ranking of apprx. 58 or 59!!


OMG!! Maria also has to defend 390pts from rome and 280 from the french open!!! But after that she can only go up......


maria has to ask for a protected ranking for the french open so she can be seeded.....


 


rise fast and fall faster

So those old expiring points are doubled as well? [:^)] Okay, thanx. Good to know.


Safina: Serena better pick up a couple of hundred points at Marbella, then, 'cause Dinara is close--she'll only lose 70 (and that is doubled) from Amelia Island. Basically, there are several ranking places that are gonna be a real shoot-out at Charleston. Fortunately, the latter half of that week is looking good for television & streams. [H]

It has happened to others. Three years ago, Dementieva's career was almost ended by an incompetent physio. She was not out so long and the point situation fell just right so she didn't drop as far--but she did drop out of the top ten for the first time in I think about five years.


Petrova has been beaten up by a gang of health problems. Now she seems together but she doesn't hesitate to back off if she thinks something might be wrong. There is such a thing as maturation in judgment and recognition of limits.
