The Big Gainer of the week award this week goes to Monica Niculescu. She won the tournament in Luxembourg, defeating Petra Kvitova in the final as an unseeded player. This title gave Monica 55 ELO rating points, which sees her gain 21 places in my rankings to #23.

This week's Upset player of the week is Barbora Strycova. She was the 6th seed at Moscow, but lost her 1st round match to lucky loser Ana Konjuh. This loss cost Barbora 13 ELO rating points, which sees her fall 1 place in my rankings to #15.

Other strong performers relative to their rankings are Lauren Davis, Julia Gorges, Kiki Bertens, Varvara Lepchenko and Francesca Schiavone.

Now, the full rankings.

  1. Curious how Wozniacki lost 4 rating points when she won both matches she played.

  2. She gained 10 points for those 2 wins (5 from each), then lost 14 points for the withdrawal from the tournament. I count walkovers as wins/losses as not playing is basically an admission that you can't win.

    If I had counted walkovers as a non match, then Wozniacki would be +10(+14), Bertens would be +16(-1), Kvitova would be +3(-1) and Niculescu would be +43(-12). The overall difference would only amount to 1 ranking place each for Wozniacki and Niculescu.

  3. Thank you for your explanation. Of course it's a matter of opinion whether a match that is not played should be rated. My familiarity with the Elo system comes from years of chess play. Unplayed games are never rated, altho they are counted for the standings in that particular tournament.
