  • 2015 men's World Rankings leaders

    those who subscribe to e-version of the magazine or get the eNewsletter will already have seen the completely top 10s.

    As a tease for those who don't subscribe, you can find all the men's No. 1s posted to the front page.

    Probably only 1 event that will spark any debate (a debate we had at season's end, of course).

    I'd like to register my quibble on mPV. What was the win-loss record between the top 2? It looks like 2-2 to me, making the WC the tie-breaker. I get the DL record and better sequence of marks, but it would seem in this case the Global Title nudges it over to your #2.

      And where does it say that your criteria are the decisive ones? Why not compare 6m results? 7-0, or DL wins, or or or.

        I'm just going by T&FN's, which has win-loss record first, honors won (!) second, and marks last.

          By that logic Nijel Amos should be No1 over 800, it's obviously not set in stone.

                  the magazines stated criteria is never followed to a "t" especially the lower half of the rankings which resembles a "just throw a few names in" rather than a calculated assessment of the worthy candidates.

                    actually, the Rankers spend more time wrestling with the bottom half of the compilations than they do the top half. Sorting out non-podium types with a reduced number of clashes against the big guns is decidedly the toughest part of the process.
