Tennis World Rankings
Tennis Rankings 2022
Dimers.com's Tennis Rankings is our exclusive, data-driven method for ranking every male and female tennis player in the world, both overall and by surface – hard, clay and grass. After each ATP and WTA tournament, we update the men's tennis rankings and women's tennis rankings on this page.
Our in-house Tennis Rankings are independent of the official ATP rankings and WTA rankings. At Dimers, we believe the official rankings can only tell us so much, which is why we built our own system.
How are Tennis rankings calculated?
Tennis players recieve official ranking points every time they play in a men's ATP tournament or women's WTA tournament. Points earned from each tournament last for a year, with rankings updated each week.
This is where Dimers' Tennis Rankings are different.
Our Tennis Rankings include more than how many matches or rounds in a tournament a player has won or lost. Our rankings also take into account who each player's opponent was (and by default, their ranking) in each of those wins and losses, plus the type of surface the match was played on, to determine how many points are allocated or removed from the player's ranking.
We also rank players by court type, allowing a better understanding of which players perform best on the different surfaces. For example, a player may be ranked No. 16 on the hard court (used in the Australian Open and US Open), No. 26 on grass (Wimbledon), and No. 63 on clay (French Open). Their overall Tennis Ranking on Dimers could be No. 20, while the official ATP rankings may have them at No. 26 overall.
There are some other factors to consider, too:
- Dimers' Tennis Rankings do not take into account whether the tournament is a Grand Slam or a regular ATP/WTA tournament. Every player is ranked accordingly, regardless of the size of the tournament.
- The overall rankings are made up of a combination of the individual surface rankings, weighted based on regularity of play on those surfaces. For example, very few tournaments are played on grass courts compared to hard courts, therefore a player's hard-court ranking is weighted more heavily than their grass-court ranking.
- The rankings for ATP and WTA tournaments are slightly different due to depth of data that is available from the two governing bodies.
- Dimers' Tennis Rankings is powered by point-by-point player data from tens of thousands of matches dating back to 2013 (although old data does not affect the current rankings).
