A Better Ranking System?


The “Heavy Topspin” Tennis Blog recently did an article about the ATP Men’s Rankings and how to make it  better.  Here are the reasons why they think it needs improvement.

1. Last week is equal to last year.  A win a year ago counts the same as a current win.  

2.Surfaces are interchangable.  A clay court win counts the same even if you are seeding a grass court tournament.

3.All opponents are equal. Beat the #2 player in the world in the semi’s or beat the #140 player, same points.
