Rankings Update

Sadly, adner (Adam) will no longer be able to do the rankings for FWTT.

He has done an absolutely magnificent job since he took over almost 2 years ago. He will be deeply missed and revolutionized the format and the entire ranking system.

I am currently in talks with trying to get someone else to do the rankings (i. e. begging haha). I don't do the rankings because:

#1 - I don't have the time to do both rankings and results
#2 - I don't have the skill to do rankings



Updates to follow Thank you for playing and please send good thoughts toward Adam.

Re: Rankings Update

Oh no! He was doing such a magnificent job.

I hope you can find someone soon Josh. If adner was able to show me how he did it - eg, make the pdf files etc I'd be keen to help...but I know how bad I am sometimes with finding the time.........

Haha - that's very nice of you Dean Thank you for the offer. But I know how busy you are -- trust me, we do the same thing in real life.

SamR03A (Cornelia du Preez) has agreed to do the rankings and we should all bow down to him (and Adam of course) because it is a daunting task.

Re: Rankings Update

Well... I'm quite busy now... but I love stats... charts, rankings, statistics..
I will be free somewhere in March...I was wondering... perhaps I can learn how to get it done also so that as a back up at least more than 1 person know how to do the rankings...
but of course SamR03A will be in charge now since he volunteered first... but just keep me in the know...

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Wawrinka, Federer, Serena, Bovina, Li Na, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Kumkhum, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players!!!

Re: Rankings Update

I would love to help. But, I know my schedule and, as happened with my attempt at keeping track of prize money, I will almost certainly hit a spot where I fall behind and can't catch up. So, I completely understand Adner's dilemma. He's done a great job, though.

Re: Rankings Update

I used to updating rankings for FWTA one year but yeah, that was a brutal task to do


Inspiration is for amateurs

Re: Rankings Update

Many thanks to adner for the work he's done Big act to follow.

Aiming for the new rankings to be up on Tuesday.

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

Re: Rankings Update

Good luck Sam!

Awesome job, Adam. Really enjoyed your rankings, especially when I found out how to use the archives.

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
