I understand that the ranking is an accumulative result of past 12months of ranking points.
But do you think it reflects current conditions, according to the race so far, the best player is the guy that won Australian Open, despite a loss, continue to lead #3 Federer by a mile.

So do you think ranking reflects current condition?

Current ranking system is just fine. Federer deserves to be where he is (#1). Does that answer your question?

That "but" in the start of the 2nd sentence shows that the thread starter does not really understand the information content of rankings. If by "current conditions" you mean form as shown by results in the past couple of weeks, then no, ranking does not reveal that. For example, we all know that Gonzalez was #2 player in the world after 2007 AO and Ljubicic was the real #2 after Miami 2006.

Come back after Wimbledon with the same question.

Actually, I was just referring to the quality of the threads started by this one person, not the flag next to his name. :)

Of course, but you have to admit Canada would be the overwhelming favorite in a DC-like format ACC contest (well, the serbs could give you a run for your money :lol: )

Huh? Huh??? What's the purpose of this thread? You already answered your own question. That's why we have two rankings. The 12 months one and the Race.
What's next?

It could be that Tennis_Passion forgot his/her password after a period of inactivity in which case I guess it is legit.
Yeah, too bad MTF doesn't have that 'hey I forgot my password, send me an email' thingy.

Oh, wait...

What a dumb thread?
I suppose you're suggesting to have weekly rankings that only include the tourneys played that week
