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, which corre-spond to those started in the month of October, have been included for the determination of the Top 30 of the General Per-formance Ranking©:

•    Tianjin Open – International (hard).
•    Upper Austria Ladies Linz – Interna-tional (hard).
•    VTB Kremlin Cup – International (hard).
•    BGL BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open – International (hard).
•    WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai – Finals (hard).
•    Shiseido WTA Finals Shenzhen – Finals (hard).

The WTA Ranking of the players, which has been considered for this report, is on November 4th, 2019.

Regard the 106 players, whom participated in these six tournaments and who compound the statistic sample that has been considered for the statistical calculations, only the 30 that have achieved the best performance in the mentioned tournaments are exposed (table 1).

We highlight, the podium conformed by Jelena Ostapenko (LAT), Kiki Bertens (NED) and Belinda Bencic (SUI) in positions 1, 2 and 3 of the GPI Ranking©, re-spectively.

Other players highlighted in the TOP 10 of the GPI Ranking© are: Dayana Yastremska (UKR), Elena Rybakina (KAZ), Karolina Muchova (CZE), Kristina Mladenovic (FRA), Ekaterina Alexan-drova (RUS), Anastasia Paclyuchenkova (RUS) and Cori Gauff (USA). See table 1.

It has been only two months since we published, in article No. 92, page 4 that the young Latvian Jelena Ostapenko had not stood out in recent times, more precisely since she won Roland Garrós in 2017. It seems that the young Ostapenko has reacted and this October has made us swallow those comments, being the tennist with best performer in the month of October.
