Re: my weekly rankings project

Collecting additional prize-money data from 1995/96

The numbers given at WTAtennis.com are different from the numbers given in their PDF-files. The USO winner-number from PDF is the same I found earlier at theguardian.com.

example
1995 US = winner US$ 497,020 from WTAtennis.com matches overview
1995 US = winner US$ 575,000 from WTA-PDF (= theguardian.com)

1995 AO = winner US$ 299,199 WTAtennis.com matches overview
1995 AO = winner US$ 351,120 WTA-PDF

There is no difference for FO and Wimbledon

Reason?

So, because Martina played so many more tournaments than Chris, she accumulated more points overall? Martina went on such an incredible run in Evertís absence during the winter of Ď78, just losing two matches, that it makes sense she could take over the top spot. I just thought it would have been later than January 16th. To me, it makes more sense that it would happen when Chrisís Slims finale drops off and Martinaís Slim victory is added in.

But again, what a wonderful and interesting thread.

Also, I am wondering if you have the official rankings from January 1978? I have always wondered where Goolagong debuted when she popped back on to the computer rankings? Iíve always wondered if she might have had the highest debut in WTA computer ranking history but Iíve never been able to locate those rankings. Much appreciated if you have them.
Thank you!
I have some of the rankings from this period. Are you still after the January 1978 ones?

Re: my weekly rankings project

Yes, please! I would love to see them, especially where/when Evonne reappeared. Iíve always wondered if it was the highest, or one of the highest, reappearances ever. I am sure Clijsters is right up there and, if Monicaís ranking werenít protected she would most likely be the record holder?

Definitely have week of 29/1/78. May have others too - I'll have a look.

Do you only use the top 60 tournaments? It could work for rankings from say 1983 to now, but for earlier years I find it would be hard indeed.

At any rate I could give you my rankings rubric (and the reasons why) and you can modify it as you see fit.
Thought about an objective work:
  • tools: threads tournament winners by event, world rankings and the yearly results
  • from the world rankings experts/reporters top10-lists I look where each player was competing at
  • for example: the top10 list for 1920 will be relevant for the 1921 tournaments
  • because I know how many top10 would show up at each category nowadays, I can see which tournament was how big back than for each single year
  • thereafter I can see which tournament attracted how many top players year by year
  • with this method I also can see which tournament should be upgraded or downgraded at one point
Objective, isn't it?

This method cannot work for 60 tournaments with only 10 players provided, but surely it works for Tier I or Tier II, maybe also for Tier III.

Re: my weekly rankings project

I mentioned earlier that the player search at WTAtennis.com is bad, but ...
working with the players matches overview at WTAtennis.com is horrible.

It's like game of pure chance. It depends on which day or even on which time of day you look for match results.
Sometimes you get displayed all results, sometimes nothing (when you know exactly there is something), sometimes you get only partly results, skipped tournmannts or "only" skipped earlier round results.

This is brutal to my nerves!

I you have the feeling you got displayed all results of that player, you have to save that page immediately, because you never know if you get them at another try!
