New Ranking System - the Poll - Suicide need you !

The Suicide ranking is until now, based on all the tournament.

Some changes seems necessary.

In the other thread, i've post a exemple of a new ranking system.
To be honnest, there's not a lot of difference following the 2 ways.

But let's ask to the players what they think .

4 Choices :

Option 1 : Status quo : all tournament count
Option 2 : 18 best results on all year (+ masters cup for the qualified)
Option 3 : 18 best but mandatories aproximately as in TT (4 GS, 8 best masters 1000/9, and 6 best other results) (+ masters cup for the qualified)
Option 4 : another way ?

Another option ( option 4 perharps) is a repartition of the 6th best : 4 best tournaments 500 and 2 best tournament 250 or challenger.
It's not too hard to do for the "calcul" (thanks excel formulas ! ). But probably in the year by year evolution if calendar is changing...

So, let's go. Give your opinion.

You have 15 days

Suicide = ??
FITD = NC titles 2008 : 4 / 2009 : 1
PAW : = NC
DTT single : NC; double : NC
TT "you want a bye in 1st round ? Play eljab !" (25 lost in 1st round on 37 challengers played)
Single : NC CH (22/38) ATP [23/16] / 2009 : (0/2)[2/3]
no title, no final
Double : NC (44/35) [14/16] / 2009 : (2/2)[3/3]
W Finals : 5 /Titles : 2 CH Knoxville 07 (with Colt th magnific); CH Besancon 08 (With Sol "Haute" Apollo)

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

I'd go with option 3 as well. However, keeping status quo would be ok for me as well. Don't like option 2 particularly.

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

Õption 2 for me. I t can be that you miss a grandslam or mastertournament, because of holidays, work, or whatever. I think this should be possible, as long as you play 18 tournaments a year! In TT it works really well, why not here?

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

I'll go for option 3 just like in real life. Otherwise option 2 is the best one.


Former #1 in FITD (Titles: 11 / US Open 2009 + MS Shanghai 2010 + MS Cincinatti 2011 champion)
also: Bangkok 2008, Sydney 2009, Acapulco 2009, Dubai 2009, Båstad 2009, Stockholm 2009, Eastbourne 2010 & Auckland 2013

Former #1 in Suicide Tennis (Titles: 2 / Won: 7)
#178 (PR#145) in TT Singles (Titles: 3 / CH Ortisei 2010, CH Bratislava 2010 & CH Mons 2012) | ATP Zagreb F 2013
#162 (PR#72) in TT Doubles (Titles: 6 / CH Rome 2011 + CH Ostrava 2011 w. vn01, CH Madrid 2012 w. Rodrigol_87, CH Sheffield 2013 w. sdtoot & CH Rome 2013 + CH Bordeaux 2013 w. Sonj1989)

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

Option 1 for me. I suck at Maths so it's the easiest way to keep track of my points. I'd surely get lost in the new system. (Or maybe I'm just conservative.) If a change is necessary, then Option 3 seems logical for me.

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

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

How many of you guys play TT here? Does that ranking not work? I guess that is the best way to do it. Especially because it is really easily possible to go out early on a Grand Slam and in that way ruining your ranking as it is with option 3. On WTA forum they use option 3 and I guess it is less good there!
