Gibraltar, Gibraltar, December 19, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- To use this rating system, the players have to go to TennisEarth.com and follow 3 steps:
Step 1: Open Accounts: All the players who played a match need to Open an Account and need to Choose a Screen Name so that they can identify each other.
Step 2: Submit match scores: Any of the players who played the match can enter the match scores at Submit Scores page. Other players are notified via email about this submission.
Step 3: Verify match scores: Other players who played in that match can then come and verify match scores. Once all the players verify the match, it is used for calculation of everyone's ratings within an hour of verification.
These ratings are calculated for singles and doubles (separately) at the turn of every hour (GMT time). Further Ranking Leaderboards are created every hour where the players are ranked based on their ratings. Players can also see how they are ranked across their Age group, Gender and Country. TennisEarth is planning to launch a Club system very soon. Once done, players will be able to rank themselves with their friends and club mates fairly easily.
More details about how ratings are calculated:
This system creates 2 sets of ratings: 1st for Singles matches and 2nd for doubles matches. All the players start with 1200 points (except professional players who start with 1800 points). Based on the Rating difference of opponents, Match result and Score difference, points are taken from losing player/team and are given to winning player/team. For example, winning against lower rated player gives fewer points, but an upset win gives more points. Similarly, a 6-0, 6-0 win gives more points and hard-fought 7-6, 6-4 win gives less points.
TennisEarth claims that once there are enough matches played with overlapping groups of players across the world, their system will be able to accurately and instantly rate any tennis player.
