Biggest WTA Ranking drops post Wimbledon including Pliskova, Kerber, Tomljanovic, Golubic
Wimbledon getting stripped of points was not supported by Pliskova or Kerber or Tomljanovic or Golubic and the reason is simple.
All these players suffered significant drops on the WTA rankings thanks to the event being stripped of points with no chance to replenish lost points. For players like Pliskova, it probably would not have mattered much because she crashed out rather early anyway but for Ajla Tomljanovic it would have. The Aussie player defended all her points by reaching the quarterfinal once more but it did not matter.
