Women's World Rankings, week-by-week (Volume 2)



Intro:



Welcome!

This is the continuation and expansion of this project which started here: Volume 1


The best time to start world rankings would be the time when the best players play against each other on every continent.
But the earlier years (even decades) of the sport saw only local competitions.

For a long time I had in mind to start the Volume 2 when some tournaments surmount their local/national status and grow to real international/intercontinental attractions.
In this sense my research (>>> stats) sees no point before The Great War, what would mean leaving 39 years blank.

Now it seems that I again changed my mind and I will start anyway at the earliest years.

Re: Women's World Rankings, week-by-week (Volume 2)



principles:



The comments made about volume 1 hold true ...

In addition, the expansion of this project involves some complications:


1.
Because of insufficient data I will have to combine the results of the years 1876 to 1880 into one ranking list, my initial list.

2.
the Challenge Round years:

Honestly, the Challenge Round does not really fit to my project!
My rankings are based on matches won and will stay like this, also for those early years. The title holder plays one match and receives points for that one match only!

Therefor many interested viewers will disagree with the outcome of my work and will turn away with disappointment, understandably.

3.
the Word War years:

If still tournaments held, especially during WW2, than outside Europe mostly local, sometimes national with shrinked draws.

I think it would be fair to use the last World ranking before each war broke out to determine the tournaments' competition value,
as long as the war and its consequences are mostly overcome.

Furthermore I have to think about how to handle bonus/quality points in those years. (But it's a lot of time to think about it until reaching such a point in the progress.)

Re: Women's World Rankings, week-by-week (Volume 2)



about rules:




1.

motto: back to WTA

Through the extensive and exhaustive work on my project I realized,
that all the points allocations the WTA developed and refined until the 2000s are well-conceived.

This applies to their tournament category system (Tier 1 to 5) with their (winner's) points allocations,
... and also applies to their quality/bonus system.

For both I will reapproach to them for this new thread.

They started with bonus points for the best 200 in 1984 and expanded their scale to the best 500 at last (usually the upper half of each list).
I worked with the best 250 for my first thread and will expand my scale now to the best 400.



2.

the no-Slam-years

The Slam-era starts 1924, from 1912 on there are some tournaments called World Championships.
Therefore I will allocate the same Slam status of 1000 (standard winner's) points to each of them, but before them the maximum for any tournament will be 700.

And therefore I will also scale down the quality points: before 1912 to 70% of standard, before 1902(?)* to 50% of standard, and for handicap events ...% of standard.


Prior to 1912 I can't see a real "major" before 1904 when Wimbledon exceeded the mark of 32 players.
1904 also seems to be the start of years with a steady number of international/intercontinental competitors.

_____


* in 1902 number of tournaments with results exceeds 100
