Well folks, 

This is the unmistakbly clear sign that the tennis rating
system is in need of overhaul.

It’s not bad enough that Rafa Nadal doesn’t have to win this
weekend to become #1 but now Jelena Jankovic will become #1 immediately after
losing in straight sets in a quarterfinal match. Ish. 

 

It’s sad on two fronts. 1- the rankings look ridiculous,
arbitratry and fan distant and 2- players should be celebrated when they climb
ladders not have their accomplishments belittled.
