I just formulated a new ranking system = average rankings.

It's like the current ATP system, but I divided the points they have by the tournaments they played. I added extra points if their 'non-countable' tournaments had points too.

The top 100 is:

Code:
Djokovic,*Novak*(SRB)	12,670		19	666.8421053
Nadal,*Rafael*(ESP)	10,455		20	522.75

The 2nd number is how much spots they move down/up from the actual ATP rankings.

No major changes at the top, but you see some massive changes once you move near the bottom.

This kind of ranking would have really screwed the likes of Davydenko who was playing tournaments left, right and center :lol:

I like this actually, perhaps the ATP should consider a system like this to prevent the top players from getting injured. Who knows, with a system like this Soderling might still be playing and DelPo might not have missed all the time.

Very nice work.

Maybe.Still had his random miracle runs though, but yeah, monthly QF losses in 250s would've been bad

Can this list remove the "Real #4" BS about del Potro? He's 7th. Ferrer and Murray are just better than him right now- and using this system, he's worse, not better

Average system used to be in existence but they got rid of it. Players get injured and no ranking system is going to stop it.

Not really. It isn't just the best 18 tournaments that count, every tournament they play counts. So getting a lot of QF's or whatever isn't that bad for their ranking. It hurts inconsistent players or players who have only 2 or 3 good tournaments out of 30 in a year mostly.

He was playing a lot of smaller tournaments (250, 500) reaching quarters, semi, those would give him about 40-90 points, it is an average so it doesn't matter if 18 or 42 tournaments count.

Agreed, one tournament wonder kind of players would severely be penalised.
Thinking of it, this is an unforgivable kind of ranking, putting a lot of pressure on the players.

As expected, the top 4 are the top 4.
