TT 2012 - Ranking System?

This topic was raised during the last off-season. We agreed to discuss it in 2012 for a possible implementation in 2013, because of the dificulties of a possible transition to a different system and how deeply a change in the rankings would affect the game as a whole.

ATP & TT points breakdown:

There hasn't been much discussion on this topic, but we're opening a poll anyway. Which of the systems do you prefer, the ATP system or the current TT system? Please vote (TT players only).

The suggestion of giving points for wins in qualifying will be discussed/voted in the TT Changes thread.

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

I believe the major advantage of the TT rankings is that they give more weight to the challengers and lower ranked tournaments.
Two points in favour of this:-
1. A Challenger is no easier to predict - in fact it is probably harder.
2. Newcomers can probably rise through the ranks quicker.

I can understand players wanting the setup to mirror real tennis as closely as possible, but we are not all Nadals or Federers.

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

I would be in favor of grand slam qualies points simply because some players choose not to play because qualies is so diffucult. You're making over 60 picks just to get to the third round of qualies.

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

I'd only suggest that Futures wouldn't count as much as Challengers! It's not a matter of how difficult it can be to predict or not.. It's simply to have an "entry level" tournament where new comers could feel more at ease. Say something like:
W: 60
F: 42
S: 27
Q: 14
R16: 6
R32: 0
Q: 1

TT 2013
Singles #131 (Best #114)
Doubles #87 (Best #61)

TT Roll of Honour
Singles finals - W: Leon CH 2013 F: Caltanisseta CH 2013, Napoles CH 2012, Madrid FU 2012, Istanbul FU 2012
Doubles winner: Rio Quente CH 2012, Getxu FU 2012, Madrid FU 2012, Istabul FU 2012, Istanbul CH 2012, Yokohama CH 2012

PAW 2013
Rank #9 (Best #8)

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

i don't agree the TT ranking system - I think we need to use the same amount of Points like in real life tennis
For example ATP250: 250, 150, 90, 45, 20.

I think it´s better!

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

I think we should use the breakdown from the ATP. For me I don't think it would have a negative effect on newcomers or challengers players. I think that would make it easier not harder for new players to rise in the ranking especially when they are playing grand slams for example. In ATP it's uncommon that low ranked players would defeat seeded players in first rounds in slams, while in TT it's always possible as there are always equal chances to win any match.
If it happened I think a transition would be the whole next year I think using two parallel rankings, the normal one we currently using and creating a parallel one with a new ranking system which won't be used and then in the beginning of 2014 start using the new one.
Maybe a vote would help see what the majority really wants?!

Thanks

It depends what you mean by low ranked. Only a very few low ranked players even play in the first round of slams

I agree with the last idea to promote the qualifications by giving some points in different tournaments (if the QD is complete)

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

I have a few opinions.

1. I am totally fine with adjusting certain things like rewarding more points per round (e.g. Finalists getting more than half the champions points in TT as opposed to exactly half as many in ATP). It basically gives points for winning matches instead of making 8 QF equal to 1 title.
I guess it rewards consistency??? Idk, but I like it.

2. What bugs me is the way that the points are scaled back. It doesn't make sense to me that a challenger title is worth a bit less than an ATP 250 final. The 250 field is much more competitive and although you could argue that the picks are more difficult, everybody is at the same advantage/disadvantage. It's all comparative. I understand that it is designed to help newcomers rise up faster, but it is almost too easy.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is:
Let's continue to adjust points per round to give more credit to finalists, semifinalists, etc.
But rescale the ATP events to match the current ATP ranking system (e.g. Slams = 2000 ; Masters = 1000)
It's fine if you want to make a GS final worth 1300 points, or a Masters SF worth 450 points or something. Just don't treat CH on the same level as ATP 250 events.

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

I think we should swich to ATP system. If someone is able to 'convert' rankings during off-season, it shouldn't be a problem.

Personally, I don't think we should give more points for challengers. I spent a lot of time building my rankings to play ATP tournaments regulary (it was 2 years I think) and it shouldn't be easier now.

Re: TT 2012 - Ranking System?

I endorse the current system, and applaud fsilva's idea of a lower tier for futures. Hopefully we are attracting more players, which will mean more Futures.
