We should Start giving Rankings to players based on court type - hard, clay, grass....

in tournaments, players seeds should be based on rank of particular court type....

This already kind of happens at Wimbledon. Players are reranked by doubling any current grass court points in their ranking, then adding 75% of their best grass court result from the previous 12 months. It gives a decent advantage to good grasscourt players.

Excluding all non-surface results would be a bit silly though. Do you really want Federer unseeded at the FO because he hasn't played on the surface for 3 years?
