The USSRA has
released its lastest USA Men’s rankings and "Grand Prix" point
standings for February 1st 2005. Jamie Crombie attains
the USA #1 position, on the heels of his selection-event win over Michael
Puertas
in Greenwich Jan 23rd, while Puertas retains overall
points lead in the USA team Grand Prix points tables. Preston Quick is
third.

This is the
second monthly rankings release under a new policy in which the USSRA
is seeking to reinvigorate USA Open men’s events through more widely publicized
rankings, as well as providing more transparency in the USA Men’s selection
process.

The current
men’s selection activity is aimed at the next Pan American Games team.

The US Men’s
rankings are based on a formula that rewards players for play in USSRA
sanctioned open-level tournament. It rewards each win and provides particular
ranking rewards for head-to-head wins over higher ranking players.

The Grand Prix
selection points are based on a different system, which awards a player
points for each round reached in specifically designated US selection
events ("Grand Prix events".) The selection events so far have
been in Cincinatti (November), Boston (December), and Greenwich (January).

These rankings
have been defined by the USSRA as only open to US citizens. The USSRA
rankings are issued by the USSRA rankings committee.
