Why are doubles points being included?
Recent research has highlighted the popularity of doubles as well as players’ enthusiasm for an integrated doubles performance measure. The inclusion of doubles will also support participation in these events, develop different skills and encourage a focus on the social aspect of competitions. In addition the system is modelled on best practice from the Tennis Europe and ITF and major tennis playing nations all of which include doubles in their ranking systems.
- 25% of a player’s best six doubles results will count towards his/her ranking.
