1. How do you calculate a player's following week ranking in this case: A player has more than 18 tournaments in her ranking and plays an event she hasn't played the year before (or only with little success so her last year's points are not in her 17 best results). This year, she has got a good result which will be among the 17 best. How do you find out which result will drop off now ? Of course the former 17th best result will drop off, but rankings only list the 18th best. :confused:

2. About quality points: On which week's ranking do they base ? If you take the tournament's week as this week, it will probably be last week's ranking for qualifying. And for main-draw ?
And what if main-draw-matches are already played on sunday (like in Zürich) ?

as in case of Zurich its deemed to start on Monday :)
quality points for both maindraw and qual draw wins are based on the NEW rankings which will be out when the Tourn STARTS.

to find out about her 17th/18th tourn you have to find out all her points totals and place them in order ;)

there's a site that does all that
but its slow and takes ages to come up if at all

Thanks a lot. :)

So did Jannak use that site as well ? Easiest thing would be that WTA lists 17th AND 18th tournaments in their rankings. Then you would be able to calculate everýthing (quite) easily.

Tennis corner is the easiest way to find out the 17th result.

He only does the top 100, I believe

If you go to the rankings, or the chase points, and hit the "points" he displays for you all of their tournaments and point totals.

Thanks, mishar ! :) Yes, it's a great feature. Only problem is that you can only use it for those players who haven't played challengers, because these points are not included.

yes that is frustrating that the challengers are missing!! But I guess one can't be too demanding when someone is doing all that work for free!
