I like it as it is, I don't like the current ATP point system.

Because there is a huge point difference between big events and Challengers. And for real tennis it may be Ok, but not for TT.

So you want everyone on a more level playing field is that it, I get it, but on the other hand, I think if you are ranked in the top 50, you should not be playing CH's in TT, that's what I call unfair to the lower ranked players if you want to use the same logic you just said about the ranking points.

I voted for staying with the current system for the same reason. It's tough enough for players to get out of Challengers as it is - a change would make it even tougher for Challenger level players.

I am saying it here again, i think it would be nice to have the same breakdown as the atp. Than youreally feel like you play there. But i agree on the transition year. So this year maintain the ranking and meanwhile start up the new system. Otherwise it would be not fair.

I voted to keep it the same. If it isn't broken, it doesn't need to be fixed.

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

TT is pretty random, especially in the late stages, so giving as many points to a single match win as in ATP isn't really great.

Example: in a GS Final - picking the winner of 3 IRL matches - using ATP system there will be a difference of 800 points between winner and loser. Which is the same as the difference between going 17-1 and 0-4 in a month of 250s.

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

The Atp system is quite unfair to early stages and I think difference between champion and Runner up is way too big. We may adjust some points definitely. It doesn't make much sense that a CH titlist gets almost the same points as runner up in ATP 250. Perhaps a 100 and 80 points for challenger instead than the ones 120 and 90 we have.
Anyhow, I don't agree changing to the ATP ranking system but we must make some adjustments

Code:
TT Singles: 173 (High 108 Mar 02 - 2015) Finals: 1-4
2013 RU: Salinas CH
2014 W: Mons CH; RU: Cordoba CH
2015 RU: ATP Doha
2016  RU: Leon CH

TT Doubles: 62 (High 62 Apr 18-2016) Finals: 5-12
2012 (2-3)W: Villa Allende CH; Guayaquil CH (w/SamR03A)
2013 (2-2)W: Mons CH (w/Renaud); Yeongwol CH (w/cserkinho) 
2014 (0-2) // 2015 (0-3)
2016 (1-2)W: Buenos Aires CH (w/raft89)
