The Liga.Tennis platform has two ranking systems - ’Ranking’ and ‘Race’ both calculated by our ranking formula, which takes into account how highly ranked your opponent is and how easy or difficult the match was - based on the score.
For the Liga.Tennis Ranking just your Best 24 results count from your the last year - on a rolling 12 month system. So any matches played more than 12 months beforehand will not count.
Each Tuesday (we chose this day because many amateur tournaments run on weekends and organizers usually fill results on Sunday and Monday) our system takes the best 24 matches of each player, calculates a sum of ranking points and saves the player’s ranking.
The Liga.Tennis Race starts from the 1st January and runs the calendar year. You can collect as many points as possible until the last day of the year and be ranked based on total points.
The Liga.Tennis Ranking Formula
For every match played on Liga.Tennis each player receives points depending on the match format:
1. 3 set match: win = 10 points, lose = 4 points.
2. 3 set match (up to 4 games): win = 7, lose = 2,8.
3. 1 set match: win = 5, lose = 2.
For regular matches each player will receive an additional bonus points if:
They beat a player with a higher ranking:
+14 points - difference more than 150 points
+12 - from 120 to 150
+10 - from 100 to 120
+9 - from 90 to 100
+8 - from 80 to 90
+7 - from 70 to 80
+6 - from 60 to 70
+5 - from 50 to 60
+4 - from 40 to 60
+3 - from 30 to 40
+2 - from 20 to 30
+1 - if difference is more than 10 points
They beat a player with the same ranking (when points difference is less than 10 points):
Lost < 3 games = 3 additional points
Lost < 6 games = 2 points
Lost < 9 games = 1 points
Note: this amount is for a regular 3 set matches. Similar to points for other formats player receives less additional points. I.e. for 1 set match might receive 1.5, 1 and 0.5 accordingly.
Lose to a player with the same ranking:
Won > 3 games = 0.5 point
Won > 6 games = 1 point
Won > 9 games = 2 points
For matches within a tournament:
Starts with a second round in tournament each player receives +10% to match points. I.e. if player A in regular match gets 10 points for win, in second round player gets 10 + 10% = 11 points, in 3d round = (10 + 10%) + 10% = 12.1 points etc.
Every 1st of January Race points will be erased to 0.
