General Performance Index©
(GPI: General Performance Index): "It is an index that measures the performance that a tennis player has had in a given period of time." This index, not shown here, is used to make the "General Performance Rank-ing© or GPI Ranking© ".

The following tournaments, corresponding to the month of May, have been included for the determination of the Top 30 of the General Performance Ranking©:

• Mutua Madrid Open – Premier Man-datory.
• Internazionali BNL d’Italia – Premier 5.
• Nürnberger Versicherungs Cup – In-ternational.
• Internationaux de Strasbourg – In-ternational.
• Roland Garros – Grand Slam.

The WTA Ranking of the players is up to Monday June 10th, 2019.

We will begin analyzing table 1, where the performance of the Top 30 of the GPI Ranking© is exposed in the 5 above men-tioned tournaments that started in the month of May.

Of the 147 players, who participated in these 5 tournaments and who make up the total that has been considered for the sta-tistics calculations, only are exposed the 30 ones with best performance in the afore-mentioned tournaments.

We emphasize, the podium conformed by Johanna Konta (GBR), Ashleigh Barty (AUS) and Marketa Vondrousova (CZE) in positions 1, 2 and 3 of GPI Ranking©, respectively.

Other outstanding players in the TOP 10 of the GPI Ranking© are: Sloane Stephens (USA), Kiki Bertens (NED), Yulia Putintseva (KAZ), Simona Halep (ROU), Belinda Bencic (SUI), Katerina Sin-iakova (CZE) y Karolina Pliskova (CZE). Please, see table 2.

Johana Konta from Great Britain, was the best performing player in May, escorted by the Australian Ashley Barty, champion of Roland Garros, and the young Czech Mar-keta Vondrousova, who has an interesting future, given his youth, potential and recent results.

In the Top 30 of the GPI Ranking© there are only 8 Top 10 players in the WTA Ranking, the two absentees are: Angel-ique Kerber, and Elina Svitolina. Kerber, during May, participated in only two tour-naments, in the Mutua Madrid Open where she did not presented in the second round when she had to face the Croatian Petra Martic and in Roland Garros losing in the first round 4-6, 2-6 against the Rus-sian Anastasia Potapova, No. 81 of the WTA Ranking. On the other hand, the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, participated in the Mutua Madrid Open (Premier Manda-tory) and the Internazionali BNL d´Italia (premier 5), where she lost in both tourna-ments in the first round. At Roland Garros, Svitolina reached 3rd. round by a walk over due to the desertion of the Ukrainian Kateryna Kozlova (2nd round), to fall af-terwards defeated 3-6, 3-6 by the Spanish Garbiñe Muguruza.

As in the case of the men, the players be-longing to the Top 10 of the WTA Rank-ing, did not play the two WTA International tournaments (Equivalent to the ATP 250 in men) prior to Roland Garros, except the belarus Aryna Sabalenka, who supposedly tried to recover lost ground of the WTA Premiers (in both reached only 1st round. See table 1) to reach semifinals at the In-ternationaux de Strasbourg. Sabalenka, would fall defeated by 4-6, 2-6 in 2nd. round of Roland Garros by the young American Amanda Anisimova of Ranking WTA 51, at the time of that match. After-wards, the young player rose to 26th place in the WTA Ranking.

Next, the tables of the Top 30 of the GPI Ranking© are shown in each aspect ana-lyzed. In general, the players who have obtained the best performances are the ones who lead the tables.
