Prorated points allocating system for the tourneys

Current system of points allocation should be improved to better reflect players effort and award the points respective of who they beat.

For example: if somebody beats Fish in a GS final shouldn't be awarded as the same amount of points as the one who beats Nadal in the other GS final.

So, here's the proposal that would award the winner more appropriate to their tournament succes:

I am in favour of prorated award system, based on the players ranking position and the tournament award rate of the player.

Every time one wins the match he should got his opponent's tournament award points. The one who wins the tournament (beside the points he got from his opponent) he will retain his own tournament award points.

For instance: if there are 5 players in a tourney and their total ATP ranking points is 2500 and the total amount of tourney award points is 1000.

example:

player A: 1,000 Ranking points
Player B: 700
Player C: 500
Player D: 200
Player E: 100
_____________________
TOTAL: 2,500 Ranking points


Then divide the total amount of points of that turnament (1,000) by the total of player's ranking points (2,500) and get the tournamnet rate of 0.4 (1,000 : 2,500 = 0.4)

That's the rate of the tournament points award. So, now every players ranking points miltiply by the tournament rate (0.4) gives a number of points that reflects that particular player value.

Player A has ....400 points tourney award (0.4 x 1,000)
Player B has ....280 points tourney award (0.4 x 700)
Player C has ....200 points tourney award (0.4 x 500)
Player D has .....80 points tourney award (0.4 x 200)
Player E has .....40 points tourney award (0.4 x 100)
_____________________
TOTAL:..........1000 points


Every time one wins he got his opponent's tournament award points. The one who wins the tournament (beside the points he got from his opponent) he can retain his own points.

Now, if player E beats Player A, he got his tourney award points, which is 400!

If in the next round player E lost to player B, thus Player B gets 40 points! And so on till the final.

If player B wins the tourney by beating player C in the final, he got 480 points (200 + 280). So, the only winner gets both, his opponent's and his own award points.

This would truly reflect the tottal effort made by some player on a particular tourney, plus possible luck in the draw would be minimized..

This would avoid to equilize the matches. Not all s/f mathces are worthy the same effort. Nor finals.

For instance,
- If one beats Murray in MS semi and the other one beats Soderling in the other semi they cannot be rewarded the same amount of points. (with all respect to Soderling).

Please discuss.

Re: Prorated points allocating system for the tourneys

I've always been a fan of quality points. I think it was a big mistake when the WTA eliminated them, 2 years ago.

But didn't the ATP have a system with quality points decades ago ... I could be wrong though.

It's a good idea, but i think it will get to complicated for fans.

Re: Prorated points allocating system for the tourneys

yeah i think you got 50 points for beating the #1 back in 90's... if you were ranked a fair way down...

i am however, more impressed with that cat rolling the sh!t of that melon... did this photograph win any awards...?

No, it is not and it never was... The same player does not "worth" the same on diferrent surfaces and his current ranking does not reflect his current form.

Some poeple are quick to jump and "find" a loophole in the system. However, only few are able to give a constructive feedback and evaluation of it.

The system is not meant to distinguish the surfaces point wise. Not even current system make difference point wise!! If you know the system that would be able to value a player per surface, please come up with. hehe...I no need a smilie for this one.

The idea of the "system" is not to reflect current form of a player. His ranking position is to value his point "weight".

The whole idea is, which you didn't get, to differ award for someone who beats Nadal (the #1) and someone who beats Tomas berdich (the #20). The reward must not be the same. Since the effort is not the same.

Whether it is on clay, concrete, grass or brick, it doesn't matter. Since it's not all depending on one single match nor on one single tournament! A tennis professional suppose to play more than just few tourneys anyway. The GS-s have all the same amount of ranking points in total regardless of the surface.

If you want to differ and value players by surface, fine! Go ahead and figure that ranking system. I am sure many would be thankful to you. Me first.
