New 2004 PAW Rankings Points Distribution
With the rise in PAW players over the past year, I think it is important to redesign the ranking system into a more playerfriendly one, that matches the number of PAW players per tournament, rather than the amount of WTA players.
For example:
We currently have 81 commitments for Tokyo TPP, but under the old system, only the top 28 players would receive ranking points.
I have redesigned in a way to ensure that the top 56 players will receive ranking points for that tournament.
Similarly, Tier III's such as Bali (the lone tournament on week 29), would have more competitors than a Tier III such as Quebec City (since Philly is also on the same week as it), so I made a greater distribution of points in Bali, whilst keeping tournaments such as Quebec City with the original Tier III spread.
