Re: Alternative player ranking system
The total number of players who played this season was 347. But just 244 of those played more then 1 match.
The absolute difference in points between the first (Djokovic) and the last (Cipolla) is 824.1.
For the illustration, with the K=24 which I adopted, the bordering difference in points where the higher ranked player does not gain any points in win over the lower ranked one is 1073. That is, if a player has 1073 points more then his opponent, win over him earns him 0 points.
