    Re: Talk about Rankings (TAR :))

    Someone mentioned Kevin Anderson returning to the tour soon, and I wondered if the Wimbledon seeding formula might move him all the way from #8 up to #4. It turns out there's a website that calculates that, and he's currently 70 points ahead of Thiem for the #4 spot. I'm not sure if either of them is playing next week, but it could make a big difference about the type of draw they get.

    Anderson is top seed in London.

    I was on the Live WTA ranking and happened to see two rankings lower than I had realized.

    Maria Sharapova is ranked 84

    Sam Stosur is ranked 115


    And Sam's actually been playing plenty of tournaments, not out with an injury. Guess she's gonna ride it out and take the Schiavone approach to end her career.

    She's #12 in doubles, so it's more like she's going back to being a doubles specialist. I figure she can easily do that for several years, if she wants to.

    Re: Talk about Rankings (TAR :))

    This is a more appropriate thread for the top 20 WTA thing that @ponchi talked about. Definitely not looking up what he wanted, but I checked a few random players that have had decent results, but have been inconsistent and not sure what what their ranking highs were. I gave myself 5 minutes to waste on this while watching the Den Bosch semi final. Seems like there's a few who got closer to Top 20 than I would've thought. Maybe Top 15 should be the standard we use rather than Top 20.

    Kaia Kanepi - #15
    Alize Cornet - #11
    Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova - #13
    Sorana Cirstea - #21
    Barbora Strýcová - #15
    Alison Van Uytvanck - #37
    Yanina Wickmayer - #12
    Mona Barthel - #23
    Daria Gavrilova - #20
    Laura Siegemund - #27
    Lauren David - #26

    With Thiem pulling out next week, he has no chance at the #4 seed at Wimbledon. Anderson has a significant lead. Zverev and Tsitsipas both have a chance, but only with a title.

    Osaka is now out, means Barty could ascend to #1 with a title

    I really would not like to hold the #1 ranking in the WTA. Kiss of death as far as winning whichever upcoming Slam will be.

    I could be all wrong, but I think Ash Barty may be quite different from the rest.

    Also getting to #1 is achievement by itself.

    Which she would if she wins Wimby.
    Sure, getting to # 1 is a major step. I assume she really wants it. And I hope she is, as Dry says, different.
    But the current state of the WTA says that if you win one tournament, getting the next one too is really hard.

    Or in the current number one’s case, getting the second wasn’t that hard at all!
