I wish they would have a system like this:
The tournaments are divided into tiers as they are now, each with its points system and that would cover hard court surface seedings + overall + year-end rankings.
For seedings of grass/carpet (= fast) and clay tournaments, the entry list would determine the players directly admitted into the draw. For seedings, the points won from tournaments played on the same/a similar surface ("fast" or clay) to the tournament in question would carry double the weight of the points gained from tournaments played on the other surface.
Venus Williams wins Wimbledon and gets 600 points + 200 quality points
Justine reaches the final and gets 450 points + 150 quality points
Serena gets beaten in the first round and gets 2 points.
In Paris, Serena wins and gets 600 + 200
Venus reaches the qf and gets 300 + 100
Justine loses in the first round and gets 2 points
To determine the French seeding the year after,
Serena would have (800x2) + 2 = 1602: seed 1
Venus (400x2) + 800 = 1600: seed 2
Justine (2x2) + 600 = 604: seed 3
For Wimbledon, it would be the opposite:
Venus (800x2) + 400 = 2000: seed 1
Justine (600x2) +2 = 1202 seed 2
Serena (2x2) + 800 =804 seed 3
Here there is no rigging of the draw but the use of coefficients means that the seedings will more accurately reflect expectations based on past performance and overall form.
