How did they do it? More than a Tier II but less than a Tier I?

Yeah. Now ain't that retarded? I mean, I know it's only once in 4 years, but I'd like to think that an Olympic medal is worth more than a Tier 1 title.

The question I would ask would be what is with that random # of 353 for the gold medalist?

Venus - Kvitova - Golden Flowers - A.K. Schmiedlova - Stephens - Stosur - Woz

So it looks like they did lowest Tier I points (430) + lowest Tier II points (275) and then divided. 430+275=705/2=352.5

Re: Offical ranking Points for the Olympics HERE!!

Olympic ranking sytem sucks.
They should award the same number points as a GS event.
353 points is very low for a major event which takes place every 4 years.

Sania Mirza.

you can't make the points that much, because if you win it, you can't defend it next year and would then lose a lot of points because of the 4 year rule.

Re: Offical ranking Points for the Olympics HERE!!

WOW!It's still much more than most of we chinese thought.
We discussed it last year,most of us thought it would be less than a Tier II points given that it is the first time.Maybe 280 or less.


But……

Sure, but you can look at it differently: winning Olympics is a one time boost to the winner's ranking.

So I don't think this is particularly relevant.

Perhaps the fact that Olympics points are not available to all players which contradicts the spirit of open competitions, is more important.

This is due to the fact that participation in the Olympics is ruled by the principle of representing a particular country, so, for example, some very good Russian players would not be able to compete because they didn't qualify for the national Olympics team.
