Re: Suicide Tennis | Ranking Points Distribution (2009) |
Any questions, please ask. These are open to change and discussion.
As per the 2009 ranking rules, the YEC becomes mandatory for all those who qualify. So Sjoerd, I guess all those who qualified in 2008 will have that be a mandatory amount configured in their totals.
To assimilate to 2008, all totals should be simply doubled like the real WTA tour. Indian Wells and Miami were always mandatories so that does not change. Like Sjoerd said, Madrid and Beijing can be mandatory once they are played.
However, the other changes are way too complicated such as Top 10 player requirements and their rankings being configured differently. Sjoerd said it in the other thread correctly, we can do the 4 Slams + 4 mandatories + Best 8 others. (For 2008 YEC qualifiers, best 7 others).
If I am leaving anything out, let me know.
Of course, this is all in theory for now. The WTA changes things so often. If an instant change is needed, we'll fix it.
