Re: 2011 Schedule & Ranking

Silver, it's just a different way of calculation.

If you know the requirements, 4 slams, 8 ATP1000, 4 ATP500 and 2 ATP250 for the top 30. And one can replace a ATP500 result with a ATP250 if you meet certain criteria. Technically, Gilles is not Top 30 last season, so he can probably count more ATP250s pts if they are better than ATP500s, fortunately, he performs much better in ATP500 then 250 thus far.

Horatio's chart, he counts 3 ATP500 (MC 90, Dubai 90, Hamburg 500) and 3 ATP250 (Estoril 45, Casablanca 45, Sydney 250). So it adds up to 1650. Marseilles 20 pts and Davis Cup 40 pts were being left out, bcos those pts will not be counted anyway at the end of the year.

I assumed the others list that has him in 1710 is that they counted all tournaments that he had played so far this year. And when he has accumulated more tournaments then they can be counted, the other charts will begin to align with Horatio's.
