The battle for #1 in WTA PGame

Post by Graveller » Apr Sun 28, 2019 4:41 pm

It was about to happen; the gap with the #1 was so small, but it only happens when it actually happens...
And today, it happened: Perdida won both WTA Stuttgart and WTA Istanbul. And by doing so, Perdida became the 12th #1 in the WTA PGame rolling ranking (= the best of last 12 months) since 2009.

CONGRATULATIONS on a year with consistent results (and participation) :-)

List of all-time #1's,weeks as #1, #times getting to #1, and date of first time #1

1. Wannadoo75 - 203 weeks (10 times - 2009;wk43)
2. Rex - 182 weeks (10 times - 2010;wk10)
3. Graveller - 69 weeks (4 times - 2011;wk42)
4. Missinandre - 30 weeks (5 times - 2009;wk12)
5. Moasey - 22 weeks (1 time - 2010;wk44)
6. Ace2Ace - 14 weeks (5 times - 2009;wk5)
7. Janickister - 13 weeks (3 times - 2009;wk8)
8. Themo - 3 weeks (2 times - 2015wk13)
9. Binx - 2 weeks (1 time - 2009;wk3)
10. Rage - 1 week (1 time - 2010;wk5)
11. Gryffy - 1 week (1 time - 2009;wk2)
12. Perdida - 1 week (1 time - 2019;wk18)

So the last three new #1's were Graveller (2011), Themo (2015) and now Perdida (2019).

In the earlier years (2002-2006), the system of Prem.5, Prem mand, etc was less clear, so the ranking that I calculated for that period is open for interpretation/discussion. and as I was not yet around, I did it as good as possible, but I do not consider it as 100% reliable.
Notable #1s in that period were:

Glowinbrains - 61 weeks
Moasey - 58 weeks (on top of the 22 weeks in the post 2009-era)
Experimentee - 46 weeks
Gavnich - 24 weeks
Joao - 20 weeks

The reign of Perdida only lasted one week (for the moment); Rex took over again and is #1 for the 11th time

But when we remove Madrid's points from 2018, we get another ranking:
provisional ranking after Madrid:
1. Graveller: 1307 pt
2. Perdida: 1306 pt
3. Rex: 1302 points

And even Jeff in Texas (1274 pt ) and Wannadoo75 §1738 pt) are not far away.

And Rome will have a huge impact too after that. I expect a lot of #1-changes in the coming three-four months (if I remove all 2018 points between wk19 and wk32 (=incl Prem.5 Canada, then the current top 3 is still within 25 points of each other)

UPDATE - the #1 is changing hands all the time :-) - Madrid and Rome both had an impact:

What happened in 2019 so far, who was/is the #1 in the rolling ranking:
Week1-4: Graveller
Week 5-11: Rex
Week 12-15: Graveller
Week 16-17: Rex
Week 18: Perdida
Week 19: Rex
Week 20 (after Madrid): Graveller
Week 21 (after Rome): Perdida

The scores for the moment are:
1. Perdida: 1360 pt
2. Graveller: 1342py
3. Rex: 1337 pt
4. Jeff in Texas: 1318 pt
5. Wannadoo75: 1294 pt.

(But it was Pyotr who won both Madrid and Rome).

Next change may happen after RG.
