Default Possible change for DTT 2009: Points award; [Winner: same as TT 2009]

In 2008, points awards were pretty simple and split in 3 categories: 1000 pts for Grand Slams, 500 points for Masters Series and 250 for any other tournament. This led that any tournament win in a tournament different from Grand Slams or Masters Series was pretty insignificant for overall ranking. For example, nevito won 2 of these tournaments (Moscow and Lyon) but is still ranked 29.

With the appearance of 1000 category and 500 category tournaments in 2009, we have to decide which point award will be granted for 2009. The following options are available:



a/ Same as TT 2009:
- 0 points for R1 losses (except in GS, which are mandatory)
- GS = 1000, 700, 450, 250, 150, 75, 35, 5 (+20 for qualifier)
- Masters Series = 500, 350, 225, 125, 75, 35, 0 (+20 for qualifier)
- 500 = 300, 210, 135, 75, 25, 0 (+15 for qualifier)
- 250 = 200, 140, 90, 50, 20, 0 (+10 for qualifier)

b/ Same as DTT 2008:
- GS = 1000, 700, 450, 250, 150, 75, 35, 5 (+20 for qualifier)
- Masters Series = 500, 350, 225, 125, 75, 35, 5 (+20 for qualifier)
- Other = 250, 175, 110, 60, 25, 5 (+10 for qualifier)

c/ Same as ATP 2009:
- 0 points for R1 losses (except in GS, which are mandatory)
- GS = 2000, 1200, 720, 360, 180, 90, 45, 10 (+25 for qualifier)
- Masters Series = 1000, 600, 360, 180, 90, 45, 10 (+25 for qualifier)
- 500 = 500, 300, 180, 90, 45, 20, 0 (+20 for qualifier)
- 250 = 250, 150, 90, 45, 20, 0 (+12 for qualifier)


d/ Give more points to minor tournaments:
- GS = 1000, 700, 450, 250, 150, 75, 35, 5 (+20 for qualifier)
- Masters Series = 500, 350, 225, 125, 75, 35, 5 (+20 for qualifier)
- 500 = 380, 265, 170, 95,40, 5 (+15 for qualifier)
- 250 = 325, 225, 140, 75,30, 5 (+10 for qualifier)

Note that, whatever solution retained, I will do the conversion with this new point award before first tournament is played for a first 2009 DTT Ranking.

DTT Race will be based on the same (no need to divide by 5 the points).

Poll is opened only for DTT Players (even the ones who have just committed for Doha). Votes from other players will not count.

Poll is opened until 2008-12-31.
