Amirbachar, if I understand this correctly, in your system you calculate every set independantly? If, say, two players played a match with a result 2:1 in sets, that is as if they played 3 matches, two of which won the first player?

As Mr Sackmann said himself in his blog, every ranking serves 2 main purposes, one is the entertainment (everybody wants to know who is the best), and the other is official - in tennis for tournament entry and seeding. So, since we can not aspire to the official use, what is left for us, amateurs, is just the entertainment part... . There are many ways to look at stuff, especially in statistics, and I welcome every effort.
