Are Serena's points correctly calculated? They seem too high

Looks like the scores are correctly recorded in the matrix. She has dominated the opposition and so has large D points, plus Q points for her victory over sister Venus.

Over three matches ... 36W - 25L = 25 differential * seeding

If seeded first, = 150 points * 1.5 to prorate for best 3 out of 5 = 225 D points

plus Victory points = 10+20+30 =60

plus Q points = 16 [i.e. 33-Venus ranking = 33-17 = 16]

Total = 301

That's what people seeding Serena 1st are credited with. So the math is right, provided the match scores have been entered correctly [i.e. Serena has a 25 GamesWon vs. GamesLost differential over 3 matches].

go firmly to the window
and listen with deep emotion,
but not with the whining, the pleas of the coward;
listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

Congratulations to the three contestants with fully intact teams through 3 rounds of play [1st place Windsongs; 2nd place TennisAnyone74; 6th place Ribbons]. Here's the tally for current leader Windsongs' "Ultra Team":

Nadal 108 60 6 174
Serena 187 60 16 263
Djokovic 97 60 7 164
Keys 70 60 0 130
Stephens 44 60 0 104
Nishikori 23 60 20 103

I haven't heard the fat lady sing yet, there are still lots of options on the table. Onwards to the Round of 16!

Hey Grav - how about some of your expert analysis on the likely podium finishers ...
