Re: FedererNIACKI???? Ranking System Issue???

2009 Nole was a MS monster, then he decided to swap around and do well in the slams again instead.

he won only one MS in 2009.

2 in 2007 and 2 in 2008.

From mid-2007 to mid-2008 (until RG 2008) he won 3 Masters Series tournaments (defeating Fed in one of them, Nadal in the other one), but also won one Grand slam, reached another slam final (losing to Fed) and played the semifinal in the two other slams (losing to Nadal).

Later he won the WTF.

It was much better than what he has now in his ranking.

useless old guy

yeh I know, but it was his consistency in 2009 MS I was referring to - 1W, 4F, 2S and 2Q, didn't fail to reach the QF of any, and his best W/L of 33/8 for the year... obviously there were more 'highlights' in '07/'08, but he was just incredibly solid for the year - went a long way towards his great 78-19 (career best - 80%) year end record.

Clijsters feels Djoker's pain

Indian Wells should sort things out.

Dojkovic has 3 better slam performances, the other one is tied. W>SF, QF=QF, SF>QF, F>SF.

Ok Federer won the Masters, but the fact that Federer does not even have a grand slam final to his name in the last 365 days is really worrysome (same as the womens game).

Imagine Nadal out of the picture and Federer being ranked number one today with those results ahead of Novak

Would today´s ranking system need a revision?
It's Fedzniacki. Chek my thread

Re: FedererNIACKI???? Ranking System Issue???

I think the rankings system is fair; actually, I believe the tennis ranking system is one of the fairest in sport - especially with its 52 week rotating cycle inclusion criteria. That said I do think there are tweaks to be made here and there, but this is largely to do with the superfluous conditions regarding 0 point penalties and eligibility to count points for ATP 250, ATP 500 and Davis Cup tournaments.

Djokovic only played one more round than Fed at the last 3 slams and did just as well in the fourth, but on the other hand his performances throughout the rest of the year at the larger tournaments were systematically worse than Federer's. So it makes perfect sense that they should be so close to each other in the rankings. In any case, I fully expect Djokovic to overtake Federer in the rankings before we hit the clay court season.

The whole comparison to WTA misses a key point.

Yes, Djokovic has a better GS record than Federer in the last 4, but we are talking world number 2 and 3. Unlike WTA the mens number 1 Nadal has 3 GS and the womens number 1 has 0 GS. If Nadal did not exist somebody else would hold those titles and be number 1.

Re: From JesusFed to Fedzniacki ..

Wozniacki is the shame of women tennis, she's just the most regular of all, but anytime Clijsters or Williams show up, she disappears. And she's psycho too, she hurled a glass on someone's head becasue she had words with him.
