Women's ELO Rankings 15/08/2016

I took a bit of time to decide whether the Olympics should count to my rankings or not; I decided that they would, so here's this week's update from Rio de Janeiro.

The Big Gainer of the week award this week goes to the gold medallist Monica Puig. She won the title with wins over Garbine Muguruza, Petra Kvitova and Angelique Kerber in the final. Monica gained 65 ELO rating points for her gold medal, and climbs 15 places in my rankings to #17.

This week's Upset player of the week is Agnieszka Radwanska. She was the 4th seed, but lost her opening match. This loss cost Agnieszka 17 ELO rating points, and she stays in 6th place in my rankings for this update.

Other strong performers relative to their rankings are Kirsten Flipkens, Nao Hibino and Zheng Saisai.

Now, the full rankings.

  1. I agree wholeheartedly that Olympics tennis should be rated. Do you know what the official explanation is from WTA and ATP for not rating this event? Whatever they might say, I suspect it has something to do with money.
    Do you rate the qualification events, in particular for very strong tournaments? A quick glance at the WTA Cincinnati tournament beginning now, for example, shows the qualification events are as strong and even stronger than the main draws for a number of WTA international tournaments. And certainly given what's at stake the qualification competitors are as intense and driven in these matches as they are in the main draws.

    1. I have no idea why the ATP and WTA aren't giving their points to the Olympics.

      I'm not rating the qualifying tournaments, they usually take place over the weekend when I'm finalising my rankings for the previous week's tournaments, and I'd rather not double my effort in updating these every week.
