How are points awarded in determining how a player is seeded in the Indesit standings? Does it depend more on winning a tournament overall or how well you do in the tournament (for example: making it to the quarters? semis? or final)?

Basically, Grand Slams are worth the most, followed by TMS events, followed by ISG events, & IS events. All points in GSs & TMSs (& the TMC) count, while only the best five results from other events count.
The entry system rankings are used for seeding in tournaments. The Race standings are only used for qualification in the TMC and for determining the year end rankings.
