How do you define better?
Year-end Ranking?
Or points based on TF weight function: GS-win +1000 points unless the winner is a didn't win any GS before, then +10 points. MM-win: -100 points. Beating S.Williams +10 points (only 10 points. She was injured anyway).

It's really unlikely to have 2 seasons EXACTLY the same (same W/L ratio, same n.1 of titles, same ranking, same # of top 10 wins, same n.1 of top 20 wins, same results at slams etc). It's either slightly worse or slightly better.

if sarin wins the golden Rena Slam next year, to me definitely it's better no matter how she fare the second half:lick:

i think the thread should've focused more on 'who will have better/worse consistency in 2013 compared to their 2012' as unless your ranking drops from no.1 to outside the top 5 your year can only be marginally different.

True, but you already mentioned six different metrics. Which one do you have in mind for measuring the whole season? For example: Which one of Bartoli's season was better: 2009 or 2012?

Slam results
Year-End Ranking
W/L ratio
Points won
Results at Tier I events
---
# of titles won
# of top 10 wins
# of top 20 wins

If a certain player happens to have better numbers/results in most of these (especially the 1st 5) campared to their last season, then that player achieved a better season. :shrug:
