Have you ever wondered how it feels to win two Grand slams in a year, along with the final spot in all four majors and still be ranked No.2 at the yearend rankings? Of course, you don't, after all we are not even close to being in the same league as tennis great Roger Federer and so it inevitably brings a variety of responses to the fore, doesn't it? Some might find it absolutely unjustified, some might find themselves inquisitive, and others may simply discard the whole idea.
But here's the deal. In the newly launched TennisEarth Rating system, Roger Federer has been ranked behind Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic in the singles rankings!!! The Serb's consecutive wins at Basel and Paris may have given him an edge over the Swiss Maestro, but this isn't the real reason for Federer's second best status in the world. To understand the factors responsible for such a unique rating system, we take an insight into the newly launched TennisEarth Rating System.
TennisEarth.com recently announced the launch of first ever “Objective” rating system open to all Amateur, recreational and professional tennis players. Ratings are based on the actual match results that the players enter on the TennisEarth.com website which are then verified by the none other than the opponents involved. Ratings are then calculated for singles and doubles matches based on Rating difference of opponents, match result, set difference and even the minute game difference. These ratings are then used to give rankings to players.
The key differentiating points for TennisEarth Ratings are:
1. Unlike the subjective NTRP and ITN rating systems, this system completely depends on the match results and is objective.
2. This is the only openly available system for Amateur and recreational players.
3. It aspires to give a global unified rating to the player which means that the players will be able to compare their standing world wide and not locally or on country level.
4. It is a self learning system. For Example - An upset win over a much higher rated opponent fetches greater number of rating points as opposed to an expected result. Similarly, a hard-fought win (e.g. 7-6, 6-4) yields lesser points in comparison to a dominating win (6-0, 6-1).
To use the TennisEarth ratings system, all a player needs to do is open an account at TennisEarth.com, enter his or her match scores and then inform his opponents so that they can verify the scores. Within an hour of the match verification, the players get re-rated.
Ranking Leaderboards are created every hour where the players are ranked based on their ratings. Players can also see how they are ranked across their Age group, Gender and Country.
Overall, the new rating system does come as a breath of fresh air amidst a number of existing ranking systems which have been under the scrutiny over the years for not being result oriented by both players and fans across the world.
