Should it count all ranking points you gained from every tournament (like the WTA Race)

Or should it be a player's 17 best tournaments.

The main point of this poll is that when you include a player's best 17 tournaments, by the last week of the season, the race will match the main rankings.

sandg wants to know your opinion :) :wavey:

2 separate rankings would be interesting.
But which one would we use to determine the top 16 at the end of the year??

Nathan there will only be one race. If the race counts the 17 best tournaments like it does now there will be no difference between the rankings and the race.

Best 17, no doubt about it.
It needs to be realistic ;)


This is not Formula One!!

So to answer my own question, the race determines who plays in the Championships and the general rankings for PAW will be of no use.

best 17 is best - allows players that don't play a full schedule to have a chance. :)

One of the features of PAW is that it mirrors the WTA Tour. Therefore, a rank and race are made :wavey:

The point of the rankings in the WTA tour is to seed players and to make matchups fair, in PAW, there are no matchups and seeds are irrelevant. So I think the way to determine who makes the top 16 at the end of the year for the Championships should be by using the general rankings that count the top 17 tournaments.

Although played fully, I vote best-17. It showed the PAW power from some players instead of more number of tournament.

PAW Rank & PAW Race Rank wil be same at end of season. When YEC wil be started any little different, sometimes YEC results from previous year still counted in PAW Ranking but in PAW Race is not.

It seem ridiculous, RACE & SINGLE Ranking are the best 17 tours :eek:

It's tough to say but you need two. The top 17 for rankings into tournaments, and accumulatory points for the season ending championships. This way, it becomes a clean slate for all people beginning in the new year. And it rewards dedication without a doubt. But, one can play top tournaments and smaller ones sparingly, show consistency, and do just well, if not amazing. At the end of the day though, its just luck ;)
