Re: Unofficial Live ATP Rankings

I'm not really satisfied with this week's performance.

Lots of mistakes. The DC update has been unstable and gave dead rubbers an extra tournament. There were mistakes inherited from last week's Futures results, which nobody really saw, and it even failed to add a new player (last week inheritance from a Futures as well).

34 mistakes/1981 players. A poor performance...

Re: Unofficial Live ATP Rankings

I can't check the ATP website at my work but can anybody confirm that the ATP gave only 5 points to Nishikori for his win over Sela (that means 45 points in Davis cup overall rather than the 50 ones I expected) ?

in the past, Darcis in 2010 got 10 points for his win in sunday's play-off even if he hadn't played on friday.

if they only gave Nishikori 5 points, that would mean that they changed the way they do that for a player who doesn't play on friday.

They did only give him 45 points.

thank you, and it's the same for Stebe who played on friday but lost.

It means that you can't get 10 points in the play-off : it's either 5 for one win, or 15 for two wins, it's nomore 5 for one win on friday and 10 for one win on sunday as it was in 2010.

EDIT : THEY CORRECTED IT AFTERWARDS, THE OLD RULE STILL APPLIES 10 POINTS FOR A WIN ON SUNDAY WHETHER OR NOT YOU PLAYED OR WON ON FRIDAY

Was expecting the same. In fact, I designed the algorithm to do just that. I was surprised to see Nishikori and Stebe get only 5 points. I do hope they won't change their mind again next fall.

Re: Unofficial Live ATP Rankings

I was thinking of something:

I could have the system automatically update rankings per countries along with the full update. I'm already doing this on another forum for Romania. But I wouldn't know where to post it on MTF or if anyone would be interested in the live rankings update for their respective country. So, anyone ?

Re: Unofficial Live ATP Rankings

I see there is no interest at all for a country ranking, for any country ranking.

In the meantime, the automated updates seem to be running smoothly this week.

Re: Unofficial Live ATP Rankings

Well the Brits already have a live ranking on another forum (the one in my sig). I'm surprised you didn't have any takers for other countries, but maybe they have something similar in their own countries?

Wow, that is an awesome display on this other forum. If that is your work, thumbs up, really great work.

Re: Unofficial Live ATP Rankings

Slasher you could just add 3 columns. 1 for a country ranking next to a country column or official ranking (that shouh be easy, not sorting the list or anything, just adding 1 extra number by counting players from that country allrdy listed-higher ranked and adding 1) and at the end of the list (like that GB forums has) you count add 2 columns for ATP Race ranking and ATP race points... I realise that would be like making anouther rankings and making a new (similar, but a little different) algoritam but only for players with commitment, for the rest just add points from this year. For players with commitment you would need to count if they didn't furfill the commitment (regarding the ATP500 and 250) and count 4 ATP500s and 2 250s (and possible challengers) and when they furfill it, you count the best 6 tournaments. I mention that bcs I don't like the way http://live-tennis.eu/race just adds points dissregarding the mandatory tournaments that will surely replace added points. At makes a player actually lose YTD points by playing a mandatory tournament.

I realise you don't need any explaining as you know about this stuff more than I do, but I just wanted to make myself clear about what I'm talkin about. Anyway, it's just a suggestion, you are doing a great job as of now!

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey
