The rankings format for the 2009 season has been decided. But first I'd like to announce that I will be the one running the rankings.
We will follow the ATP rankings except for a few things:
1. Last year's ranking points not doubled to start the season.
2. 12 small tournaments (any tournament other than Grand Slams, Masters Series, and World Tour Finals) will be counted in the rankings instead of 5.
3. You may play a maximum of 15 small tournaments.
