Re: Ranking system overhaul

Re: Ranking system overhaul

An obviously daft idea that's taken them way to long to correct.

ITF ranking points will be awarded in $15,000 and $25,000 qualifying rounds and a player’s ITF ranking will continue to be valid for acceptance purposes after WTA ranked players.

There will be no more ITF reserved places at 25k's any more.

Re: Ranking system overhaul

So, what's the big difference between the new system and the old system?

Participants of 15K tournaments get WTA points again.

This year so far they only got ITF points. A high ITF ranking then allowed them to get a reserved ITF spot in 25K tournaments, where they could win WTA points.

This seperation of rankings is now smoothed out to some extent. But 10K tournaments still only give ITF points.

Have they published a grid with the points ?

It’s good they’re keeping this at least, as it will be favoring players who actually win rounds in qualies (which was the main interest of the new system)... not sure how it makes sense to keep it in an apart ranking any longer though...

Also quite sad how little points they are giving for a 15k win, 12 points used to be ridiculous, 10 is even more stupid, that’s now 5 times less points as a 25k win and has many points as what a French scrub gets in Paris for receiving a WC and being trashed in the first round...

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
