  TOP147.com讯 本月27日,本站一篇标题为《嫉妒华人登顶世界第一?出尔反尔的WPA还要闹多少乌龙》的文章引发热议,WPA面临信任危机,世界排名的公正性遭受质疑,一时间处于舆论的风口浪尖(点击查看全文)。

世界排名风波后续:WPA高度重视 第一时间作出官方回应

  随即WPA高度关注此事并在第一时间给出了官方回应,全文如下:

The CBSA Hongze event is not a WPA sanctioned event, therefore no ranking points.

The WPA updated the rankings two weeks earlier than usual, simply because having the men’s 9-Ball WC finishing so late in the year meant there was no point to updating the rankings for two weeks, then changing them again without another event having been played. According to the Rules, rankings are always updated on 1st January, and points earned in all events from two years previous (i.e. 2017) are deleted.

Alex Kazakis earned his number 1 position because of his results in ranking tournaments. He also played in 7 of a possible 9 of these, maximising his opportunities to earn points.

The players mentioned from China and Taiwan, Chang, Jung Lin (TPE) and Ko Pin Yi (TPE) both played 4 ranking events, Dang, Jinhu (CHN) played 3 while both Wu Jiaqing (CHN) and Liu Haitao (CHN) played in only 2. Liu Haitao lost in the second round of the China Open, earning very few points which reflects his low ranking. Chang Jung Lin and Ko Pin Yi are currently ranked 5 and 6 respectively, and Wu remains in the top 16.

The selection of players for the World Pool Masters has nothing to do with the WPA, it is strictly an invitation event and Matchroom allocates the invites. This event is a non-ranking one so therefore has no impact on player rankings.

Any argument that Alex Kazakis is favoured because of where the ranking events are held, and that also disadvantages Chinese players is flawed. Alex lives in Greece and just 2 of the 9 eligible ranking events were held in his European region, 3 were held in Asia and 4 were held in the USA.

译文如下:

  首先,洪泽CBSA9球总决赛并不是WPA审批的赛事,因此没有积分排名。

  WPA比往常提前两周更新排名,只是因为男子9球世锦赛结束太晚,两周内没有任何其他积分可以更新,所以在没有加上其他比赛的情况下再度更新了一遍积分。根据规则,排名会在1月1日更新,统计2年内的赛事,因此2017年之前的积分都会被清除。

  卡扎基斯取得世界第一是因为他在排名赛上的好成绩,他参与了9站比赛当中的7站,尽全力赢得了足够积分。

  此前提及的中国大陆以及中国台北选手——张荣麟和柯秉逸都参加了4项排名赛,党金虎参与了3项,吴珈庆和刘海涛只参加了两项,其中刘海涛在中国公开赛第二轮就出局,积分非常有限,所以排名自然很低。张荣麟和柯秉逸分居第5和第6,吴珈庆也保持在Top16行列。

  对于参加大师赛选手的选拔与WPA无关。严格来说,这是一项邀请赛,由Matchroom公司分配名额。这并不是排名赛,因此也不会对选手的排名产生冲击。

  对于因为比赛地点使卡扎基斯处于优势,而中国选手处于劣势的问题,实际上卡扎基斯住在希腊,而只有2项排名赛在欧洲范围内,而3项在亚洲,4项在美国(译者注:WPA认为卡扎基斯并未因比赛地点问题而从中受益)。

  以上就是WPA关于之前的质疑给出的回应,应该说WPA的回应速度非常高效,由于之前WPA和中国台球协会(CBSA)曾传出合作出现裂痕,此次修改排名格外引人注意。我们相信WPA会从球员角度出发继续加强和中国的合作,毕竟当今中国在世界体育舞台是不可或缺的重要部分。

  当然,也有一个好消息。作为新科世锦赛冠军,中国姑娘韩雨将作为女子年终世界第一被邀请参加三月份在直布罗陀举行的大师赛,开创先河。从2019年起,花式撞球大师赛扩军,将邀请两位女子选手参与角逐。其中,对女子9球贡献卓著的英国名宿凯莉·费雪在此之前已经接受邀请。而刚刚新婚还没来得及蜜月就参赛并奇迹夺得世锦赛三冠王的韩雨,荣升世界第一并同时受邀参赛,真是三喜临门!
