Bonus points change for 2013 - a poll

Fred and I were discussing bonus points and how we need to change something for 2013. Tournaments of the lowest category (Internationals) are too valuable in terms of bonus points at 120, and we also think that there should be 5 tournament categories, just like in real tennis, as opposed to three we had so far (those five would be grand slams, premier mandatory events, premier 5 events, regular premier events and internationals). We also think that the top 3 categories should award bonus points for top 12 players, while the remaining two should only award top 8.

So after several failed attempts we came up with what seems like a good bonus point system, based largely on the actual WTA point system but with consideration to differences between actual tennis and tipping as a game. So you are welcome to tell us if you would like it implemented starting with 2013.

Grand Slam:

1st: 400
2nd: 275
3rd/4th: 200
5th-8th: 120
9th-12th: 60

Premier Mandatory:

1st: 250
2nd: 175
3rd/4th: 125
5th-8th: 80
9th-12th: 40

Premier 5:

1st: 225
2nd: 150
3rd/4th: 100
5th-8th: 75
9th-12th: 35


1st: 150
2nd: 100
3rd/4th: 75
5th-8th: 50


1st: 100
2nd: 75
3rd/4th: 50
5th-8th: 30
