Default New Ranking System - the Poll - Suicide need you !

The Suicide ranking is until now, based on all the tournament.

Some changes seems necessary.

In the other thread, i've post a exemple of a new ranking system.
To be honnest, there's not a lot of difference following the 2 ways.

But let's ask to the players what they think .

4 Choices :

Option 1 : Status quo : all tournament count
Option 2 : 18 best results on all year (+ masters cup for the qualified)
Option 3 : 18 best but mandatories aproximately as in TT (4 GS, 8 best masters 1000/9, and 6 best other results) (+ masters cup for the qualified)
Option 4 : another way ?

Another option ( option 4 perharps) is a repartition of the 6th best : 4 best tournaments 500 and 2 best tournament 250 or challenger.
It's not too hard to do for the "calcul" (thanks excel formulas ! ). But probably in the year by year evolution if calendar is changing...

So, let's go. Give your opinion.

You have 15 days

I'd go with option 3 as well. However, keeping status quo would be ok for me as well. Don't like option 2 particularly.

Õption 2 for me. I t can be that you miss a grandslam or mastertournament, because of holidays, work, or whatever. I think this should be possible, as long as you play 18 tournaments a year! In TT it works really well, why not here?

I'll go for option 3 just like in real life. Otherwise option 2 is the best one.

Option 1 for me. I suck at Maths so it's the easiest way to keep track of my points. I'd surely get lost in the new system. (Or maybe I'm just conservative.) If a change is necessary, then Option 3 seems logical for me.

miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Default Re: New Ranking System - the Poll - Suicide need you !

How many of you guys play TT here? Does that ranking not work? I guess that is the best way to do it. Especially because it is really easily possible to go out early on a Grand Slam and in that way ruining your ranking as it is with option 3. On WTA forum they use option 3 and I guess it is less good there!
