He will be able to count Dubai in the end of the year for sure as even with the zeropointer in Basel he will only have 4 ATP500 results in his rankings.

But I'm also pretty sure he will also count it during the Bercy week when he will have 5 ATP500 results in his rankings (including zeropointers), since this year the limit to counting only 4 ATP500 results has been erased, and I think it also applies to players who won't actually play 4 ATP500 tournaments in the calendar year if you look at Nadal's ranking breakdown which includes 5 ones if you include the Davis cup which used to be included in the limit to 4 ATP500 results between 2009 and 2011.

useless old guy
