Women's ELO Rankings 11/01/2016

The 2016 tennis season has started, and I'm writing blog posts again. We welcome back the women's tennis season with tournaments in Brisbane, Shenzhen and Auckland.

The Big Gainer of the week for the 1st week of this season goes to the Shenzhen finalist Alison Riske. She wasn't highly rated going in to the tournament, but beat the odds in all of her matches up to the semi final, where she won an evenly rated match to make it to the final, where she lost to the new ELO #2 Agnieszka Radwanska. Alison's performance in Shenzhen gave her 40 ELO rating points, and puts her at a new ranking of #70, 31 places higher than at the last week of the previous season.

The Upset player of the week in the 1st week is Petra Kvitova. She was the 2nd seed at Shenzhen, but lost in the 1st round to the lowest ranked player on my lists at the time, Zheng Saisai. This loss cost Petra 16 ELO rating points and she fell 1 place in my rankings to #11.

Other strong performers relative to their rankings are Samantha Crawford, Naomi Broady, Julia Gorges, Anna-Lena Friedsam and Tamira Paszek.

Now, the full rankings.
