ATP/WTA ranking are constructed so that they are not evaluating season's achievements of players, but they are encouraging the players to take part and be motivated on insignificant for their careers tournaments (Like Beijing or Doha etc) Otherwise all players will be playing like Serena taking all other tournaments as match practice before big tournament with huge points (Slam)
OK but there is a problem with that logic. 3, 4, 5 or even 10 according to some won't be close to winning a slam. What do you suggest? How many points instead of 1000?

I used ATP's point system as it is easier to follow and a bit more accurate than WTA's. At first, I had counted Tier II/Premier and MM wins too but that bumped Wozniacki a bit too high so I removed them But seriously any decent player can win them, not a very good sign of greatness.

No problem at the top but gets a bit questionable towards the bottom so am open to suggestions about everything. There's also the Grand Slam Cup that both Williams won once and lasted only two years so I didn't include that one. They don't need the points anyway. Lastly, Date-Krumm had 149 weeks in the top 10 but I don't know how many in the top 5. Her total will increase but don't think it'll be enough to pass Petrova.
Nice one. I like the way you try and account for a multitude. Think continued sucess is better than flash in the pan sucesses

in my system 10 Tier I = Slam , 10 Tier I = almost impossible, but if the likes of Wozniacki will manage to do it , hands down , they are ahead of One Slam winners


At the same time even Runner-Ups at Slams = greater achievement than Tier 1 , because Radwanska's main achievement is not Miami , but Wimbledon Final.... it's what made her more famous and more respected both by tennis specialist and general public

I think balance should be heavily moved towards Slams and results at Slams, all the rest tournaments should give significantly smaller points....

Nevertheless Wozniacki with any system will be close or ahead of 1Slam Wonders .... she is just ridiculous in any list with a really huge achievements except Slam titles

IMHO they do matter. Winning a lot of titles kind of legitimate the biggest wins. When a player holding only a handful of titles wins a slam, I can hear a voice screaming "fluke" in my ears. OTOH, when a player is holding 10, 20, 30+ titles, it kind of legitimate her slams victory(ies). Only a handful of active players possess more than 5 titles. The players who have managed to win more than 10 titles (or even better, 20+) are certainly among the most accomplished players on tour. They deserve recognition.

Kvitova is a baby compared to Dementieva's long career. No way is she greater with just 2 years at the top level and nothing else. She will be but not yet.

still this baby won Wimbledon (and it wasn't a fluke run) and YEC and 2 Tier 1 and was the best player in 2011 and even not playing her best was going deep at Slams in 2012

Of course she has still much to prove , but she is not the one, who will drop out of top ten in the near future (if stays healthy)

Dementieva is definitely underachiever , but no extra bonuses are given for underachieving.

I used ATP's point system as it is easier to follow and a bit more accurate than WTA's. At first, I had counted Tier II/Premier and MM wins too but that bumped Wozniacki a bit too high so I removed them But seriously any decent player can win them, not a very good sign of greatness.

No problem at the top but gets a bit questionable towards the bottom so am open to suggestions about everything. There's also the Grand Slam Cup that both Williams won once and lasted only two years so I didn't include that one. They don't need the points anyway. Lastly, Date-Krumm had 149 weeks in the top 10 but I don't know how many in the top 5. Her total will increase but don't think it'll be enough to pass Petrova.
Please don't get me wrong, but Wozniacki, Jankovic and even Zvonareva ahead of Ivanovic, Kvitova and Li?

Why would I get you wrong? As I said I'm open to suggestions. What would you like to change?
Longevity and consistency are a part of greatness too. Some players, like Ivanovic have a short prime and even though this is pointless to argue, she owes her 'greatness' to Henin's retirement. What has she done since then? Not much. Wozniacki despite her young age has been more consistent and even with the reduced points for non-slam tournaments Ivanovic couldn't pass Caro.

The only thing Jankovic has over the others below her is a long career as a top player and that should count for something. Many of them will probably catch up in few years so not a big problem in the long run. Zvonareva is no longer ahead of Ivanovic btw.

Kvitova is different. Give her time and she'll pass the slamless ones but it's too early to put her ahead IMO. She is too new and still needs more results. You can't say this player is greater than Wozniacki as soon as they win a slam and YEC.

Li hasn't been a top 10/5 player long enough. Only Schiavone among slam winners has less points for weeks at top10&5.

Your rule was less than 5. 5 non slam titles is not less than 5.
