I dissagree. A Grand Slam win already gives you a lot of points.aaliyahman wrote:Yep I totally agree, I am sick of these faceless number 1's.Formusic wrote:yea, with 8000 pts you d be 1-5 because nobody will get 2000 pts but you and even if some player wins 6 masters 1000, he will end up with ~7000-8000 pts...but it s still small to me, a GS title should give you 2500 pts esp. with the WTA system, therefore no random girl can hit the top.aaliyahman wrote:Thanks!

Masters 1000 (1,000 points), ATP 500 (500 points) and ATP 250 (250 points).
I just looked it up, and there has not really been "random" #1's. Actually there has only been 21 leaders on the WTA Tour and 25 leaders on the ATP tour in the past like 3 decades according to Wikipedia, which in this case looks reliable!
Which random girls are you talking about? The recent #1's Sharapova, Wozniacki and Azarenka have all deserved the position in my opinion...
