bad luck imo
a ranking which possibly does not include your results from all 4 Grand Slams because you were better at some MM-event is a complete joke

Well in TT there are some mandatories, at least 4 GS but only if you're well enough ranked to play the tournament ( if you're #200 and you miss AO, you won't have 0 pts )


Of course, everybody can play suicide, so no reason to not count all mandatories.

Thanks to all of you to vote and participate

Re: New Ranking System - the Poll - Suicide need you !

Option 2
First,it is simple
Second,not everyone has enough time to follow every GS and master.

Re: New Ranking System - the Poll - Suicide need you !

OKay, I have something to say here. I've been thinking about it. I agree that option 3 is more like real life. Option 2 is like TT (I'm almost sure that he just takes the best 18, not obliged to play GS for anyone, but we should ask Gavnich about that!).

Against option 2, it is too far away from real life.
Against option 3, we don't get paid for playing GS, so we don't all have enough time to follow every GS and Master.

Option nr. 4: 3 GS, 6 Masters, 9 others. In this way everybody can miss some big tournaments, but playing 4 GS is still a big advantage. Think about this!

Re: New Ranking System - the Poll - Suicide need you !

one additional thing: we need urgently to double the points from last year, because this way 2008 will be for nothing.

If someone take 2000 from Australian Open he will have half of the points of leaders

again real life
