Grand Slam Tournament Rankings
I came up with a rankings system to rank each players success in each Grand Slam event. 24 points was given to the winner, 15 r/u, then 9, 5, 3, 2 (a player had to win a match to get a point - some Slam events were played with smaller fields). I began in 1946. Strength of field was not considered. i.e. Chris O'Neil and Barbara Jordan got just as many points for their Aussie wins as the players today. So, obviously, the players who played and did well in more events gained more points. The formula doesn't determine who the best players were, only those who achieved the greatest successes over time. Enjoy.
EDIT: POSTS 13-17 INCLUDE RANKINGS WITH A DIVISOR SYSTEM - MORE ACCURATELY SHOW PLAYERS' OVERALL PERFORMANCE IN A SLAM
