As you can see Maria is currently no.15 in the rankings. However Ivanovic has alot of points to defend and will lose her no.14 go lower than maria...maybe out of top 20(rofl)...So most likely maria may end the season at no.14..

However i am not aware of the point distribution for Bali Tournament of Champions.. So depending on that point scheme then we can tell..

Here's the thing, however: The presently posted rankings list is identical to the "race" list. That's not right. Big-assed mistake or WTA trying make it look like a mistake?

( By the way: Eurosport today announced the " HENIN " comeback


for Melbourne.)


[/quote]


As expected. Good to know. But, are they taking this as comeback AT Melbourne? No warm-up events?

I think she starts in Brisbane and then probably Sydney.

Interesting stats. Thanx. [H] At year-end, even WTA is forced to post the realities:


Russians Rule Rankings


 


Every year on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, new champions emerge and new faces from various countries surge up the rankings. However, the one constant in recent history is Russia as the dominant country on the women's tennis scene. Players from Russia may not win all the Grand Slams (just one in 2009), but they had more than twice as many Top 100 players in the 2009 year-end rankings as the second-place country and won more than twice as many Tour singles titles as the second-place country. Don't expect the Russians' dominance to diminish anytime soon, as a now-healthy Maria Sharapova should return to prominence and Dinara Safina, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Elena Dementieva, and Vera Zvonareva are all in their primes. 


Players Ranked in 2009 Year-End Top 100 (As of November 9, 2009)
Russia: 15
Czech Republic: 6
France: 6
Germany: 6
Italy: 6
United States: 5
Romania: 4
Spain: 4
Belarus: 3
Belgium: 3
China: 3
England: 3
Slovakia: 3
Switzerland: 3
Ukraine: 3
Australia: 2
Austria: 2
Chinese Taipei: 2
Croatia: 2
Hungary: 2
Japan: 2
Poland: 2
Serbia: 2
Argentina: 1
Bulgaria: 1
Canada: 1
Denmark: 1
Estonia: 1
India: 1
Israel: 1
Kazakhstan: 1
Latvia: 1
Slovenia: 1
Uzbekistan: 1

Notes: Russia had four players in the year-end Top 10. It had the most players it's ever had in the year-end Top 10 in 2008 with five ... The United States has the record with six players in the year-end Top 10 in 1981, 1982 and 1983. In each of those years the Top 4 players were all from the United States. ... There have been at least three Russians ranked in the year-end Top 10 every year since 2004 and at least two every year since 2003.


Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Singles Titles in '09
Russia: 13
France: 5
United States: 5
Belarus: 4
Italy: 4
Denmark: 3
Spain: 3
Belgium: 2
Israel: 2
Germany: 2
Hungary: 2
Serbia: 2
Australia: 1
Austria: 1
Czech Republic: 1
Japan: 1
Romania: 1
Slovakia: 1
Switzerland: 1
Thailand: 1

Notes: Six different players captured the 13 titles won by Russians in 2009, led by Safina, Kuznetsova and Dementieva, who each won three ...  Players from Russia won eight of the 19 Premier-level events in 2009. No other country had more than two ... Russia has won four of the past six Fed Cups.

The 10 biggest upsets of the decade

10. Tatiana Garbin d. Justine Henin-Hardenne (1), 7-5, 6-4, second round, French Open, 2004

Henin-Hardenne was the defending champ, while Garbin, a clay court specialist, was ranked No. 86 in the world headed into the French.

9. Agnieszka Radwanska (30) d. Maria Sharapova (2), 6-4, 1-6, 7-2, third round, U.S. Open, 2007

Sharapova's title defense lasted just three rounds before she was bounced by the Polish Radwanska.

8. Alberto Martin d. Lleyton Hewitt (1), 1-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 (4), first round, Australian Open, 2002

This was the first major Hewitt played as the No. 1 player in the world and he ended up falling flat in front of his native Australians.

7. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga d. Rafael Nadal (2), 6-2, 6-3, 6-2, semifinals, Australian Open, 2008

Everyone was looking forward to a Nadal-Federer final. Neither made it that far. Federer was dispatched in the semis by eventual winner Novak Djokovic, while Nadal ran into the buzzsaw that was unseeded upstart Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Now Tsonga is a top 10 player, but at the time he was figured to be no match for Nadal. But the Frenchman won with ease, wowing tennis fans with his crisp movement and relentless backhand.

6. Virginia Ruano Pascual d. Martina Hingis (1), 6-4, 6-2, first round, Wimbledon, 2001

In retrospect, it was the beginning of the end for Martina Hingis. She had made it to at least the semifinals of 14 of the last Grand Slams, but after taking off the month in between the French and Wimbledon, the No. 1 seed had nothing in her match against doubles specialist Virginia Ruano Pascual. It wasn't the first first round Wimbledon shock for Hignis. She had a similar early exit in 1999.

5. Jill Crybas d. Serena Williams (3), 6-3, 7-6 (4), third round, Wimbledon, 2005

Serena had played Crybas twice before, dropping just seven games along the way. In a listless Wimbledon showing in '05, though, the former Florida star came out on top of the decorated champ

4. Ivo Karlovic d. Lleyton Hewitt (1), 1-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3, 6-4, first round, Wimbleon, 2003

The 6-foot-ten Karlovic (who would later became a Busted Racquet famous for his "smack that ace" dance) was 203rd ranked qualifier when he bested the defending champion in 2003, which was just the second time in 126 years that the previous year's Wimbledon winner would be ousted in his first match.

3. George Bastl d. Pete Sampras (6), 6-3, 6-2, 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, second round, Wimbledon, 2002

By the time Bastl took down the legendary Sampras, the seven-time champ was far along with down-slope of his career. That didn't make the loss any less shocking though. Bastl was a lucky loser (he failed to qualify for Wimbledon and only got in when another player withdrew because of injury) and ranked No. 145 at the time of the win.

2. Roger Federer (15) d. Pete Sampras (1), 7-6 (7), 5-7, 6-4, 6-7 (2), 7-5, fourth round, Wimbledon, 2001

Federer wasn't Federer when he snapped Pistol Pete's remarkable 31-match Wimbledon win-streak. Heck, he was only 19. But in his Centre Court debut, Federer out-paced the four-time defending champ, whose decline was no longer in question. But it's not like Federer came out of nowhere, mind you. He was considered to be the "next big thing" ever since he won the Wimbledon juniors in 1998.

1. Robin Soderling (23) d. Rafael Nadal (1), 6-2, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, semifinal, French Open, 2009

It seems less stunning now than it was at the time. Since May Nadal has played sparingly because of his knee injuries and tennis fans are now forced to discuss whether he'll ever come back to form. But we didn't know any of that in May. Nadal was coming off wins in three of the last four majors, plus the Olympics. He had seemingly dethroned Roger Federer four months earlier in Melbourne. He was riding a 25-match win streak on clay. He hadn't dropped a set in the tournament since 2007. The question wasn't whether he'd lose, it was "who the heck is Robin Soderling?" This was easily the biggest upset of the past 10 years and, perhaps, ever.

The 10 best women's tennis players of the decade

10. Elena Dementieva -- Grand Slams: None, Weeks at No. 1: None

Only 10 women won Grand Slam titles this decade (compared to 15 men -- and they had Federer!), so the top 10 for the decade isn't very deep. Dementieva gets the nod for her consistency (she's finished in the top eight in six of the past seven years) and 14 tour titles. She hasn't appeared in a Grand Slam final since 2003, however, despite numerous semifinals (including two this year).

9. Svetlana Kuznetsova -- Grand Slams: 2, Weeks at No. 1: None

The Russian took home two Slams in the decade: the 2004 U.S Open and the French in 2009. Despite that, she's never hit the top spot in the rankings even though four players reached No. 1 in the past six years without having done so. (They are Amelie Mauresmo, Kim Clijsters, Jelena Jankovic and Dinara Safina. The former two eventually won a major, the latter two are still waiting.)

8. Amelie Mauresmo -- Grand Slams: 2, Weeks at No. 1: 39

After years of near misses, Mauresmo finally won a Grand Slam in 2006, taking the Australian Open and Wimbledon at the relatively-advanced age of 27. She became the first Frenchwoman to win two Grand Slams in a year since 1925. Her reign at the top was short-lived. Starting the next year, Mauresmo plummeted in the rankings and wouldn't advance past the fourth round of a major for the rest of her career.

7. Lindsay Davenport -- Grand Slams: 1, Weeks at No. 1: 76

Davenport was No. 1 for more weeks this decade than all but two women, but she finished with the same amount of Grand Slams as Anastasia Myskina and Ana Ivanovic. She made four more finals and 10 semis in the Slams, helping her to three year-end No. 1 rankings.

6. Kim Clijsters -- Grand Slams: 2, Weeks at No. 1: 19

For the first half of the decade, Clijsters had the dreaded tag of "greatest player without a major". She shed that label in the '05 U.S. Open and buried it completely four years later with her stunning victory on the same court after coming back from retirement (and becoming a mother).

5. Jennifer Capriati -- Grand Slams: 3, Weeks at No. 1: 17

At one stretch at the beginning of the decade, Jennifer Capriati won three of five Grand Slams and made the semifinals in seven straight majors. In a sport where comebacks are king, Capriati's may have been the best. From 1993 until 2000 she wasn't a factor in the game -- playing in just six Slams from '93 until '98. Then, all of a sudden, she was the best women's tennis player in the world. (For what it's worth, I changed around the rankings of Nos. 4-8 about two dozen times.)

4. Venus Williams -- Grand Slams: 5, Weeks at No. 1: 11

It's a little hard to believe that Venus has only been No. 1 for 11 weeks in her career. Just think of what she could have done with a modicum of interest. She won half of the Wimbledons played during the decade and won four of six Slams in 2000 and 2001 (including the famed U.S. Open final against her sister in the first year of the century).

3. Maria Sharapova -- Grand Slams: 3, Weeks at No. 1: 17

When, at 17, she became the third-youngest woman ever to win the U.S. Open, big things were expected from Maria Sharapova. Expectations were so high that the two Grand Slams and six consecutive years in the final top 10 that followed seemed slightly disappointing. This is largely because her results in the two biggest tournaments of the year (Wimbledon and the U.S. Open) have been subpar of late. Since 2006, Sharapova has failed to reach the quarters in either event.

2. Justine Henin -- Grand Slams: 7, Weeks at No. 1: 117

Because she didn't overpower opponents like the Williams' or Sharapova, casual sports fans seemed to take for granted the greatness of Henin (she dropped the Hardenne in 2007). Yet she won seven Slams and spent over two years at No. 1 (non-consecutively) in the middle of the decade. With her comeback set to begin in January, is there a chance she could appear on this same list 10 years from now?

1. Serena Williams -- Grand Slams: 10, Weeks at No. 1: 84

When Serena first came along she was just Venus's little sister. It didn't take long for her to pass her sibling, and the rest of the tennis world, behind. She's always the most interesting player on the court, whether it be because of her prodigious talent, unpredictable behavior or flashy outfits. One-quarter of the decade's Grand Slam trophies are in her possession, even though it's largely accepted that she didn't fully utilize her talents, which only goes to show just how great Serena Williams truly is.

Serena Williams surprised me. She earns plenty of money on the court. She has a health of steel. She should have nerves of steel the next year because she was nervous this year.


Anyway the next year Sharapova will be better.

I want to add a couple of points because the WTA is stressing these numbers in an effort to prop up Serena as a paramount figure -- when the fact is that less & less people want to watch her no matter how good she might be.


If we rate players in dollars, then you have to figure in endorsements, and there you have to roll both the sisters together to even get in the same ballpark with Masha. [H]


Serena may be healthy physically but she hardly has "nerves of steel". I've said for the last couple of years that Serena is mentally disturbed. This is not a gratuitous put-down; the symptoms have been escalating for years--falling down, shrieking like a banshee over questionable injuries; freaking out at alleged "racial epithets" that neither microphones nor anyone in the vicinity seemed to hear. Her USO antics are testimony that the condition is getting worse.


Compared to Masha, Serena is a mental basket-case. Mark my words: USO is not the last meltdown. I'll be surprised if she can get through 2010 without a worse one.

People want Sharapova to defeat Serena so she will close her mouth for ever.


We need a strong player to defeat her. If Serena has trouble with her nerves that means she is weak inside, that also means she can easily lose her place in tennis. A strong tennis player has nerves of steel.

The Aussie criminal Craig Tiley's rigged draw plot to (among other objectives) injure Lenochka's ranking succeeded. [8o|] He was no doubt well paid by the Americans to pursue their vendetta from the Beijing Olympiad. (Judging from a WTA referee rushing onto the court demanding (and getting) illicit rule suspension in a vain effort to save Wozniacki from Li Na, I suspect that other well-known Yankee tool Stacey Alaster was in on the scheme.)


This is what you have to look forward to in the Open Corruption Era. It is a pity that some here can watch this repeatedly & continue to live in a fool's paradise where they imagine this will not be turned against Masha. Targeting of one Russian player is an attack on ALL of them. Presently, corporate pimps & panderers run women's tennis at every level above ITF play & in too many venues. Only a handful of Tour tournaments--Auckland, Moscow, a few others--remain clean of their influence.
