New Ranking Format and Points to Send 2011

Rankings
Effective immediately, the rankings will now only reflect the best of 16 events played (plus tour championships). There will also be no limit on the amount of tournaments you can play per year. This will have a tremendous effect on the number of people entering events. So therefore, we have implemented the following draw sizes per events:
  • Grand Slams - unlimited main draw spots
  • Premier Mandatory - 64 main draw (48 direct entry; 8 qualifiers; 4 wild cards; 4 BYES)
  • Premier 5 - 64 main draw (44 direct entry; 8 qualifiers; 4 wild cards; 8 BYES)
  • Premier 600/700 - 32 main draw (25 direct entry; 4 qualifiers; 3 wild cards)
  • International - 16 main draw (12 direct entry; 2 qualifiers; 2 wild cards)
  • Challenger Events - unlimited main draw spots (cannot be in top 20 at time of entry)
  • Maximum qualifying entries at ANY event is 16 (13 direct entries; 3 wild cards)
Points to Send
  • With this assistance of adner, we have completely renovated the "points to send" option. Instead of rewarding experience, we are rewarding past successes.
  • Each player will start out with their base points of 105, 102, and 100 points
  • If you have ever won an event from 2000-2010, you win "forever" points on that surface.
  • Grand Slam/Olympics Gold = 1.5
  • Tier I/Premier 5/Premier Mandatory/Tour Championships/Olympics Silver = 1
  • Tier II/Premier 700 or 600/Olympics Bronze = 0.5
  • Tier III, IV, V/International/Challenger = 0
What about events won in 2011?
If you win an event in 2011, you will receive additional points on to your points to send.
  • Grand Slam = 7
  • Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 = 5
  • Premier 600/700 = 3
  • International or Challenger = 1
These points will be dropped off at the end of 2011 and be converted to the "forever" points listed above for the 2012 season.

There is a cap of 115 points MAX per surface.


A list of points to send will be published before the Australian Open Draw is announced (sometime within the next 30 hours or so).

Re: New Ranking Format and Points to Send 2011

I know I probably not in a good position to comment on this since I may be a beneificay of this . But I have to say this is a well thought out system .

Nthama you should not be worry that it is not very fair , when the points come out you will probably realize the handicap of some established player is not very big . I think Jane will prob have advantag in clay but other than that not so much . Also nthama is on a rise and will win slams and big title soon , so you will benefit from t soon

I also like the idea that we can play unlimited tournaments and count 16 best result , it make the ranking more realistic .

Thanks so much

Re: New Ranking Format and Points to Send 2011

Nthama does a lot to help out around her, so I don't appreciate you publicly calling her a bitch on this board.

When you see the points, you will realize that it is actually more fair than experience points as there is less of a range between veterans and new comers.

But Bryanne Vittoria is only telling the truth, Nthama is a bitch.

Re: New Ranking Format and Points to Send 2011

Oh, that explains Elise's 114 hardcourt points.

I like the new approach. I wonder if everyone will be playing every week from now on?

Great work!

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you
