How can players who have never won a GS or Masters tournament be in the top 5?

The points calculations should be changed so that only winners can make the top 5. Maybe the points for a win should be double than that for a finalist unlike now.

What else should be changed about the points system?

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Make every tournament result they play in count, but it won't matter when RR takes over the world.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I think the real question is when you will stop posting shit and stop trolling? The answer to both questions is no.

How is this trolling? I am suggesting the points system be changed becuase it does not reward the winners of tournaments as much as it should.

first off, it rewards winners just as much as it should. At slams, the champ gets 1000 points, and a semifinalist gets 450. quite a big reward for winning compared just to having a good run.

second, everything you post is criticizing someone or something. that is called trolling my friend

So if you win one GS or Masters and nothing else you get to be in the Top 5? I agree that a better way is to make every tournament count, not just your top 16.

Still got to do well in the Slams or the TMS events. It's like Davydenko PMK he hasn't got to the top 10 cause he hasn't done well in the Slams, a SF and 2 QFs at 3 Slams are very good results, there is only so far optionals can take a player in the rankings.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

players ranked high enough to be in TMS/Slam should not get a zero pointer when they miss one of those events, should be able to replace it with a 6th best or 7th best result.

Nah.. seen as fed/rafa hog just about everything between them, someone needs to be 3rd, 4th and 5th regardless.

by that rule Roberto Carretero coulda been top5 in 1996.
chris woodruff in 1997.

the system should be thrown out and the rankings will be determined by a magic 8-ball, and the point awards would only reflect REAL wins against REAL players

Vamos Carretero or Albert Portas in 2001 that would have been a seeded player that people would have begged to play.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
