The best tennis player in Russia is Ekaterina Alexandrova! Championship standings: 1st quarter of 2024

Date: April 19, 2024 Time: 03:09:31

The ATP and WTA have long identified the best tennis player based on their performance in various tournaments throughout the year, specifically over the last 52 weeks. How fair is the image? These organizations only take into account the status of the tournament and the stage the tennis player has reached. The editors of the “Championship” believe that there are other criteria by which the rating will be more accurate. Additionally, success over shorter distances is also important. Therefore, we decided to create our own rating and let’s start with women. But first, let’s talk about the scheme.

How are points calculated?

The results of the tennis players in all the tournaments of the last quarter are taken into account. In this case, from January 1 to April 1, 2024.

The following are taken into account:

the tennis player’s current rating; how much she managed to rise in the ranking during this time; what results she could achieve in the tournaments depending on her status; what serious rivals she managed to defeat during this period.

And now in more detail: at the end there is a general table, and this is what the columns mean.

Column 1. Rating at the end of the period

Tennis players who are among the top 10 in the WTA ranking receive 10 points, those who are among the top 20, 9 points, and so on, for a place in the top 100, one point.

Column 2. Qualification bonus

If during this period the tennis player was able to rise in the ranking by several dozen places, for every new ten she will receive an additional bonus point. If there was no noticeable increase in three months or even a drop in results, then this bonus is not awarded.

Column 3. Titles + endings

For participating in the final of the lower category WTA-250 tournament, the tennis player receives one point, for the title – two points. With each subsequent category, the value of the rounds doubles. And finally, for the fourth round on TBS, the tennis player will receive one point, for the quarterfinals – two, for the semifinals – four, for the final – eight and for the title – 16. The details are in the table.

Columns 4-9. The value of winning over your rivals

For a victory over a tennis player in the top 50, a participant in our ranking receives one point, for a player in the top 40 – two points, and so on. A victory over a top 10 tennis player is worth five points, and over a top 5 player is worth six points. Details in the table.

She was twice in the final of the “500”, in Adelaide and Abu Dhabi, rose from 18th to 11th place in the WTA rankings and won six victories over tennis players from the top 20 to the top 50. But even this was not enough to finish the reporting period in the top three of the championship rankings.

More than 50 places in the ranking is the best result among all Russian women during this period. Anna has two excellent performances to her credit: she reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and the final of the thousandth tournament in Dubai. But the main thing is that Kalinskaya twice defeated tennis players from the top 5: Cori Gauff and Iga Swiatek in Dubai, and also three times stronger than the tennis players who occupied places from 6 to 10.

She helped an excellent performance at the thousandth event in Miami, where the Russian reached the semifinals, simultaneously defeating two top 5 tennis players: Iga Swiatek and Jessica Pegula. Overall, Ekaterina has the best winning record over top-5 opponents; she also defeated Elena Rybakina in Adelaide. As a result, Alexandrova scored 50 points, exactly the same as Anna Kalinskaya. But thanks to an additional indicator – a place in the WTA ranking – it was Ekaterina Alexandrova who became the best tennis player in Russia in the first quarter of 2024 according to the “Championship”.
