Tennis Canada's New National Rankings


By Tennis Canada

Tennis Canada is implementing a new National Rankings system that will be effective as of January 1, 2014. As of that day, the existing head-to-head system will no longer be used for the National Rankings. The new Rogers Rankings will be determined based on the number of rounds reached (similar method to that used by the ITF, ATP World Tour, and WTA). This system will be used on a 52-week rollover period and will include the player’s best results (number to be determined).

The existing rankings will be used for the remainder of this year, which will include a year-end rankings run on December 31, 2013.

The new rankings method will be applied to juniors, professionals & open players in Phase 1 (January 1, 2014) and will be rolled out to seniors and wheelchair players in Phase Two (early 2014).

The junior rankings will be comprised of all provincial and national tournaments. Most international junior tournaments, identified Canadian open events and all professional events will also be included. The junior rankings will be a combined rank in which a player’s best results can come from any junior age category event or open/professional event they play in.

The open rankings will include all open events in Canada as well as all professional events.

Please note that all new rankings released after January 1, 2014 will include the results from 2013 under the new ranking method.
