ITF Seniors Rankings Update

From ITFtennis.com:

ITF Seniors Tour (updated 09 June 2021)

  • From the 1st January 2021, all normal grades and ranking points for all existing tournaments were reinstated, subject to an ITF analysis of travel restrictions and player accessibility.

With immediate effect the following will apply to the ITF Seniors Rankings:

Points earned from  18 March 2019 to 2 September 2019 Points earned from 9 September 2019 to 16 March 2020 Points earned from 7 September 2020 onwards 
Points earned in this period will drop on a weekly basis between 14 March 2022 – 29 August 2022 Points remain countable for 3 years (156 weeks) Points earned in this period will drop on a weekly basis between  6 September 2021 – 14 March 2022Points remain countable for 2 years (104 weeks) Points earned from 7 September 2020 will drop after 52 weeks. Points earned drop after 52 weeks 

Between September – December 2021, players will lose points earned between September-December in both 2019 and 2020. For example, points earned on 9 September 2019 and 7 September 2020 will drop on 6 September 2021. 

  • Between January-March 2022, players will lose points earned between January-March in 2020 & 2021. For example, points earned on 6 January 2020 and 4 January 2021 will drop on 3 January 2022. 
  • Results from higher graded (World Championships, S1000, S700 & S400) tournaments will be counted a maximum of once within a player’s best 4 results during the extended rankings period, i.e., double counting of the same tournament is not permitted. If a player competes in the same tournament on multiple occasions within the extended period, the best result will be counted. 
  • Points earned from the World Championships will remain countable until the next edition is played, even if this date is beyond the extended rankings period. E.g., points earned from the Super-Seniors World Championships in September 2019 will drop after the next edition of the Super-Seniors World Championships takes place (scheduled for October 2021).
