Rankings & Results

How To Be Ranked  

For players to be ranked in the open / junior rankings, they have to participate in STA-organised, sanctioned tournaments. Every tournament that players participate in will earn them points which attribute to their rankings. Points are awarded only when players reach a round in the main draw where points are available. The ranking points are accumulated from the previous 52 weeks.

 

Ranking Point Allocation System (OPEN / ADVANCE / INTERMEDIATE)

The points awarded for each round is as follows:

Winner Finalist S-Finalist Q-Finalist R16 R32 R64 R128
100 75 50 25 15 5 3 1
  • Points are only awarded to players in the main draw.
  • Any player who loses in the round of 128 players gets 1 point and 3 points in the round of 64 players and so on as indicated in the above table.
  • Any player who received a "bye" or " walkover" and loses in the second round shall receive only first round loser's points.
  • Any player who gives a "walkover" in the first round will not receive first round points.

 

**NEW** Ranking Point Allocation System (JUNIOR) **Effective from STA-SPEX 2nd Junior Age Group 2013**

The points available in each round will vary depending on the Age Group Category and the round reached. Points gained from competing in a higher Age Group will be added back to the player’s Ranking in his/her actual age group. Points gained from a player’s actual age group cannot be added to the other Ranking of higher age group that he/she competes in.

The points awarded for each age category and round is as follows:

Round /
Age Group

R8 R7 R6 R5 R4 R3 R2 R1
18U 750 540 360 240 150 50 20 8
16U 450 300 240 180 90 30 12 5
14U 300 225 150 90 60 20 8 3
12U 180 135 90 60 45 15 6 2
10U 120 90 60 45 30 10 4 1
  • Points are only awarded to players in the main draw.
  • Any player who loses in the first round will receive R1 points and in the second round will receive R2 points and so on as indicated in the above table.
  • Any player who received a "bye" or " walkover" and loses in the second round shall receive only first round loser's points.
  • Any player who gives a "walkover" in the first round will not receive first round points.

 

Special Point Award **Updated 3 September 2012**

  • Effective 1 April 2008, players who miss a STA Open tournament because they are representing Singapore in an overseas tournament sent by the STA will be awarded STA Open Singles' ranking points equivalent to the average obtained over six (6) STA Open tournaments of the previous 52 weeks.
  • Players who miss a STA Junior tournament because they are representing Singapore in an overseas tournament sent by the STA will be awarded STA Junior Singles' ranking points equivalent to the average obtained over four (4) STA Junior tournaments of the previous 52 weeks.
  • Similarly, those who travel overseas on their own to participate in the ITF, ATP & WTA tournaments will be awarded ranking points in the same manner as above.
  • The onus is on the players to claim the ranking points from the STA before the start of the STA Open tournament or STA Junior Tournament which they are going to miss. This should be done together when requesting endorsement for overseas tournaments, failing which NO ranking points will be awarded thereafter. Players must submit a copy of the draw as evidence of participation in the overseas tournament.

Discrectionary Rankings 

The STA management committee can under the advice from the secretariat award discretionary ranking to deserving players who:

  • Have acheived a WTA or a Top 50 NCAA ranking, but for reasons acceptable the rankings have lapsed and the player has been unable to play national or international touranments for a period of 12 months.
  • This ranking will not be taken into considerations for national touranment seedings or national team trials.
  • The sole purpose of this ranking is to potray a true potential of the player and assist him in participation in International tournaments.
  • Players requesting for the same must give adequate proof that they are in training and have intention to play international tournaments.
  • These ranking will be time bound and will be reviwed by management on regular basis.
  • The management has the flexibility to award a ranking from 1 to 20 for these players on selected criteria.
