Re: Indian Wells BNP Paribas, Baby! Vamos Rafa!

Don't you guys think it's ridiculous that Rafa hasn't played for half of season 2012, yet still his points for Vina del Mar 2013 doesn't count in his breakdown? Also points for Halle 2012 are not counted.
I mean, how stupid is the rule that you have to count exactly 4 GS + 9 MS + 4 ATP 500 + 1 ATP 250! This is insane telling players exactly which events they should play. At least it should be 4 GS + 9 MS + 5 best other countable events...
There is no point for Rafa plying Halle or Queens. No point playing Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur. That's really stupid.

He got what he needed out of the South American tournaments and I'm very glad he did.

I see the rationale for the ATP rule, but I also see why players might object, for me it's misleading to name this organization the association of tennis players since the players don't seem to have much power in the association,

These are the rules atm.

You should know better Star, didn't the players establish the ATP to protect their rights but the TDs & Co have taken over yet again.
