Poll: Fill-in-the-Draw Points Distribution 2016
This poll is to address the issue brought up by Edinboro on Feb 2, 2015.
There really is not much of a difference separating the winner from the champion. Seriously, only a 200 point difference between the winner of a slam and runner up? And a mere 150 point difference between PM winner and runner up?
2009 and 2010 had the best ranking systems.
You will now have an option to vote the ranking system you'd like. Here are the options you have.
1. Mirror WTA ; Similar to 2009-10.
2. Current System ; Similar to 2013-15.
3. Mirror WTA, but with modified values for larger draws (meaning tournaments like IW/Miami will earn more).
In the third case, the maximum amount of points earned for larger draws:
Indian Wells/Miami = 1,250 points
Birmingham/Charleston/Eastbourne = 685 points
Int'l 64 draws (if available) = 375 points
Points earned for Olympics will stand alone. If option 1/3 is chosen, then the max amount of points earned will mirror the WTA system (for 2012 it was 685 points). If option 2 is chosen, then the max amount of points earned will be 600 points.
However, no matter which system you choose, the number of participant who can earn points will be reduced based on the draw prediction. For example...
Grand Slams/IW/Miami - up to 128 players will earn points
Madrid/Beijing/P5/P700* - up to 64 players will earn points
P700/Int'l - up to 32 players will earn points
