    Y'see, "mad" is a relative thing (not mine! ) but there's nuthin' relative about having a pissed-off scorpion on your tail... or a mad scorpion, for that matter....

    What am I talking about?

    So if on the first week (i.e., almost a year ago) you gained 5000 points for your performance, then a week from now, those 5000 points will not figure in your rankings calculation.

    The French Open is held always on the 42nd week of the year. That is now. When the 43rd week of the year becomes the present, the French Open points for everyone will get wiped off their rankings calculation.

    Therefore, to stay in the game of rankings, you need to make sure you play as much as possible. If you skip a couple of big tournaments that you have won earlier, it will affect your rankings quite a lot.

    Unless of course you are LD or LCW and are always winner or runner-up - then you can afford to sleep a little more!

    If you want to understand ranking and how it works better, here is some reading for you:

    Need to play 10 tournaments in the past 52 weeks since only best 10 is counted so if you can achieve success in those 10 graded tournaments you can take a vacation all the remaining time and still have the earned ranking points

    Correct, and that is what some top players do very successfully. But you cannot always guarantee that you will be standing on the final or semi-final day at all the big events, and that is why you cover the bases by picking up some easy points (and staying in shape, seeing the world, meeting sponsorship obligations etc) with less fancied tournaments as well.

    Besides, no self-respecting player would be left out of the team events, (TC, UC, SC, AG, SEAG, CG, EC, etc etc) and that is why when all's said and done, "vacation time" is mostly just wishful thinking for anyone in the top 20-25...

    Here are some different calculations:

    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2012/10/2...s-to-3rd-spot/

    Excerpt:

    ...Chinese player Li Xuerui is currently at 2nd spot with 85926.7 points but she is not playing the French Open as well as Bitburger Open, and that will affect her ranking points. She was the runner up at French Open 2011 and defending champion of Bitburger Open, so she will lose 2170.2 ranking points and her new ranking points will be 83756.5.

    On other hand, Saina Nehwal can benefit from the French Open. Saina is currently at 3rd spot with 80361.7 points and if she wins French Open then she will get 3150 points and her ranking points will be 83511.7, which is just 245 less than Li Xuerui.

    Eager to watch china open .. Lets hope saina to meet li xuerui. But the way li is playing, i hope juliane is enough to finsih her or p v sindhu or mitani whoever meets her in the first or second rounds, definitely she will lose her game. Having tons of confidence after beating her before, sindhu may pull her in such a way , she may lose even in straight sets.. Lets hope this in china open to occur..

    She not only improved her game but also the post match press-conf abilities as well.... She is becoming more and more all round sportswoman. Keep it up!

    Seems like its back to the drawing board for Saina. What did she lack against Mitani? Agility and court coverage comes first to my mind. She was playing the same but its Mitani who set the bar a bit higher. Anyone any thoughts?

    just out of curiosity, i read from various sources of news about SN, it seems that most describe her playing style as 'textbook'... why is that??

    Nothing wrong SN was playing good. Its just that she gave away too many freebies. Her smashes were landing out and at the crucial juncture of the match being 19-17 up in the first game and not able to finish it up then for the game would certainly play in the mind. Mitani was keeping her at the back and following it up with nice drops that has to make SN tired as well, she had to bend a lot to pick it up and then Mitani herself was retrieving well hence forcing SN to go for the lines and the shots which landed out by a few inches from SN made her to slow the ace of the game against Mitani who herself was a rally player. I would say Mitani made SN to play according to her game which was clever for her. She was serving high and was getting the bird mid court making it easier for her to plpace it next. Come another day SN would land her smashes on line, play a bit more of placement games coupled with attacks that lands in and thats it.

    Its because she plays in a very orthodox manner. That means correct technique both in terms foot work, shot making and tactics i.e. stick to the basics nothing fancy.

    You are absolutely right. SN is pretty good herself in court coverage but man... Mitani is something else... While watching the match, during rallies at someone it feels like SN is about to win it but Mitani not only retrieves it but is back up and ready for the next shot... Yep SN was tired from two weeks of play and I think she also gained some weight as well for she was not moving that fast. Remember she took two months off and only had 5 weeks of training. I noticed her movement on was slow compared to Indonesian open. She will certainly give Mitani a good fight next time when they meet. Once Sindhu joins the league it will get exciting. In a year or so another Japanese will come forth, Nozomi Okuhara.

    Everyone has some bad days one in a while where nothing goes right. I am sure Saina will bounce back from this. Let's see how well Mitani does after this victory and the same goes for Liew Darren also. Taking about weight, Saina sure seems beefier now, just look at her thighs.

    Saina Nehwal’s performance analysis in 2012

    Gautam. October 29, 2012
    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2012/10/2...-no-1-in-2012/

    Excerpts:

    ...Year 2012 has been the best year in Saina Nehwal’s career. After a disappointing last year, where she wasn’t able to win a single Super series title, this year she won two BWF Super Series Premiere (Indonesia and Denmark) and two Grand Prix Gold titles (Swiss and Thailand) along with an Olympic bronze medal.

    ...Saina has performed well compared to all her top four opponents in this year. She has won 2 Super Series Premiere, while her competitor Wang Yihan, Li Xuerui and Wang Shixian won 1 Super Series Premiere title each.

    ...In 2012, Saina Nehwal is leading the table and if she continues her good performance in the next 3 Super Series, she has a chance to top the BWF ranking and achieve her career best ranking.
