Thumbs down Kim and Amelie Do Not Deserve To Be Ranked #1 and #2

If you divide the number of points a player has by the number of tournaments they played to get the points, you get rankings like these. This much better reflects a player's ability and does not allow players to inflate their ranks from playing over 20 tournaments a year.

1 Justine: 2,798 / 12 = 233.2
2 Mary: 2,517 / 13 = 193.6
3 Lindsay: 2,707 / 14 = 193.4
4 Kim: 3,566 / 19 = 187.7
5 Maria: 2,574 / 15 = 171.6
6 Amelie: 3,538 / 21 = 168.5
7 Venus: 1,492 / 10 = 149.2
8 Elena D: 2,043 / 21 = 97.3
9 Martina H: 583 / 6 = 97.2
10 Nadia: 2,160 / 27 = 80
11 Patty: 1,900 / 25 = 76

whatever, they deserve it. if people don't wanna play more than 12 tournaments a year, that's their fault. all the more power to the people who earn it.

there are only 17 tournaments that count to the ranking currently. If player competes in 12, then no wonder she isn't top ranked.

I think Serena actually spent the majority of her 52 weeks or so at No. 1 with like only 12 tournaments. But not every player is Serena.

If your system was used, they would only play the Grand Slams and perhaps some Tier 1s..

2016 saviors of the WTA

ANGELIQUE KERBER 63 75 DOMINIKA CIBULKOVA 60 60
LOUISA CHIRICO 60 60 IRINA-CAMELIA BEGU 63 62 KARIN KNAPP 63 67 60

I think you have to work really hard to play at a high level consistently and as only 17 tourneys count I don't think the system is inflated. Momo has won a grandslam two tier ii events and reached the quarters and final of another two tourneys so being no 2 was earnt the hard way.

close your eyes and believe
