If you divide the number of points a player has by the number of tournaments they played to get the points, you get rankings like these. This much better reflects a player's ability and does not allow players to inflate their ranks from playing over 20 tournaments a year.

1 Justine: 2,798 / 12 = 233.2
2 Mary: 2,517 / 13 = 193.6
3 Lindsay: 2,707 / 14 = 193.4
4 Kim: 3,566 / 19 = 187.7
5 Maria: 2,574 / 15 = 171.6
6 Amelie: 3,538 / 21 = 168.5
7 Venus: 1,492 / 10 = 149.2
8 Elena D: 2,043 / 21 = 97.3
9 Martina H: 583 / 6 = 97.2
10 Nadia: 2,160 / 27 = 80 :tape:
11 Patty: 1,900 / 25 = 76 :tape:

whatever, they deserve it. if people don't wanna play more than 12 tournaments a year, that's their fault. all the more power to the people who earn it.

there are only 17 tournaments that count to the ranking currently. If player competes in 12, then no wonder she isn't top ranked. :rolleyes:

That's totally hilarious about Nadia and Patty! The truth reveals itself once again.
:worship: yes it shows that Nadia and Patty are way overrated while Justine, Lindsay and Mary are underanked

I think Serena actually spent the majority of her 52 weeks or so at No. 1 with like only 12 tournaments. But not every player is Serena. :D

If your system was used, they would only play the Grand Slams and perhaps some Tier 1s.. :rolleyes:

I think you have to work really hard to play at a high level consistently and as only 17 tourneys count I don't think the system is inflated. Momo has won a grandslam two tier ii events and reached the quarters and final of another two tourneys so being no 2 was earnt the hard way.

:tape: to you, because your stat is totally wrong! You can not divide Amelies 3538 points with 21, because those 3538 points are the result of her best 17 tournies! So, it should be:


1 Justine: 2,798 / 12 = 233.2
2 Kim: 3,566 / 17 = 209.7
3 Amelie: 3,538 / 17 = 208.1
4 Mary: 2,517 / 13 = 193.6
5 Lindsay: 2,707 / 14 = 193.4
6 Maria: 2,574 / 15 = 171.6
7 Venus: 1,492 / 10 = 149.2
8 Nadia: 2,160 / 17 = 127.06
9 Elena D: 2,043 / 17 = 120.2
10 Patty: 1,900 / 17 = 111.8
11 Martina H: 583 / 6 = 97.2

Or put another way it tells you who doesn't play a full tour, who has played well for a short time instead of over a year, who is the best injured player who won't turn up or who keeps the playing field uneven by only playing when they have rested and trained to have a good chance of winning.

They played the most consistent tennis under the system and they deserve the spots. Let it go!;) :lol:

Amelie should have stopped at two tournaments this year. Once she had the AO she was worth an average of 350 points. That would have been enough to guarantee her year-end no. 1, I imagine. :)
