Current system of points allocation should be improved to better reflect players effort and award the points respective of who they beat.

For example: if somebody beats Fish in a GS final shouldn't be awarded as the same amount of points as the one who beats Nadal in the other GS final.

So, here's the proposal that would award the winner more appropriate to their tournament succes:

I am in favour of prorated award system, based on the players ranking position and the tournament award rate of the player.

Every time one wins the match he should got his opponent's tournament award points. The one who wins the tournament (beside the points he got from his opponent) he will retain his own tournament award points.

For instance: if there are 5 players in a tourney and their total ATP ranking points is 2500 and the total amount of tourney award points is 1000.

example:

player A: 1,000 Ranking points

Player B: 700

Player C: 500

Player D: 200

Player E: 100

_____________________

TOTAL: 2,500 Ranking points

Then divide the total amount of points of that turnament (1,000) by the total of player's ranking points (2,500) and get the tournamnet rate of 0.4 (1,000 : 2,500 = 0.4)

That's the rate of the tournament points award. So, now every players ranking points miltiply by the tournament rate (0.4) gives a number of points that reflects that particular player value.

Player A has ....400 points tourney award (0.4 x 1,000)

Player B has ....280 points tourney award (0.4 x 700)

Player C has ....200 points tourney award (0.4 x 500)

Player D has .....80 points tourney award (0.4 x 200)

Player E has .....40 points tourney award (0.4 x 100)

_____________________

TOTAL:..........1000 points

Every time one wins he got his opponent's tournament award points. The one who wins the tournament (beside the points he got from his opponent) he can retain his own points.

Now, if player E beats Player A, he got his tourney award points, which is 400!

If in the next round player E lost to player B, thus Player B gets 40 points! And so on till the final.

If player B wins the tourney by beating player C in the final, he got 480 points (200 + 280). So, the only winner gets both, his opponent's and his own award points.

This would truly reflect the tottal effort made by some player on a particular tourney, plus possible luck in the draw would be minimized..

This would avoid to equilize the matches. Not all s/f mathces are worthy the same effort. Nor finals.

For instance,

- If one beats Murray in MS semi and the other one beats Soderling in the other semi they cannot be rewarded the same amount of points. (with all respect to Soderling).
