Thread: Team points
03-08-2008, 02:57 PM #1
now, don't get me wrong, i'm all in favour of LCW getting as many ranking points as he can, but i seriously think there's a flaw in BWF's team points award system. i realise this has been discussed in the TC qualifying thread, but i thought i'd make it a thread of its own to promote some discussion, in case some of us missed it there.
is it right that LCW (for example), should be awarded 8214 points for playing in a few qualifying matches for MAS against less than impressive opposition?
is it fair that a player could get more points in team events than the runner up of a super series event gets (7800 for those who don't know)?
i believe the current system awards points based on percentages of your own ranking and the ranking of your opponent, but i'm in favour of this calculation being reviewed. i feel it gives players from the nations who automatically qualified, in this case CHN and INA (for both the mens and the ladies), an unfair disadvantage especially in the run up to olympic qualification.
p.s. on a separate point, don't say i never stick up for CHN!!

Solution: no points for team events .
I wonder if tennis players get points for the Davis, Fed and Hopman Cup?

ah, but you can't just have no points, otherwise some players may not be motivated enough to represent their country.

Sometimes team spirit is enough to inspire a player to represent their country
