I did one of these at the end of last year.

It's when I dropped off the highest ranked and lowest ranked opponents from their averages. It eliminates the "fluke" losses to terribly low-ranked opponents.

Monica's numbers improve by a whopping third! (Foretz, Charleston)

Also note, I included the walkovers/withdrawals in the losses. (It helps their averages.) And I know people might chew me on it but to me a walkover/withdrawal isn't any different from playing one point and retiring in a match.
