Question about the ATP Race Points - I think there is a mistake.

The atp site says Federer has 516 points after R4 of RG but
he went into the tournament with 486 points and he made third round, which gives 15 points, so 486 + 15 = 501. Is the ATP site wrong or I am overlooking something?

Re: Question about the ATP Race Points - I think there is a mistake.

that's right, it should be 501 and not 516
I didn't notice this error, but you are correct
I have no idea why they added 30 points to his race points and not 15

Yes, it's a mistake. I already emailed them, but I guess they don't take much notice.

Just realized->> if Coria wins RG (highly likely) then he'll overtake Federer's lead in 04 Champions Race!! Amazing considering I thought Roger had such a huge gap over the others^^!

I think the real mistake is the Race system.

don't think so, for me, the Champions Race is one of the best things that have been introduced the last years.

The Champions Race blows. I agree with FatCarnage here.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Question about the ATP Race Points - I think there is a mistake.

because it measures the achievements of the current year and only the 8 best players of the current season qualify for the Masters Cup

that's why the Champions Race is a very good thing!

Champions Race is a fantastic concept !

2000: Kuerten wins No.1(Champions Race) at last opportunity-> overtakes Safin in TMC Lisbon by defeating Sampras SF & Agassi Final !

2001: Agassi takes big lead with AO, IW-TMS, Miami-TMS...BUT Kuerten looks set for Back-to-Back when he wins Monte Carlo-TMS, FO, Cincinatti; then Hewitt storms to the Champions Race at last opportunity (taking USO, Tokyo, TMC{def Grosjean, Agassi, Ferrero, Rafter}).

2002: Hewitt pips Agassi in the end but showdown in Shanghai TMC very exciting! Hewitt leads after Wimbledon BUT Agassi with Miami-TMS, Rome-TMS, USO-final, Madrid-TMS almost overhauled him; Hewitt sealse the deal with wins over Federer SF, Ferrerro-Final at TMC .

2003: 1st Agassi looks impressive with AO, Miami-TMS; then Ferrero with Monte-Carlo TMS, FO, USO-final; then Federer with Wimbledon, followed by Roddick's building lead with Canada-TMS, Cincinatti-TMS, USO; at last Federer wins TMC BUT Roddick pips him narrowly!... Best thing was 3-way battle between the NEW BALLS->> Roddick was very lucky .

2004: Federer look invincible with AO, IW-TMS, Hamburg-TMS...BUT Coria with Miami-TMS final, Monte-Carlo TMS, Hamburg-final, FO title??... suddenly able to overtake Roger's big lead heading into Wimbledon!
-->> Who will clinch it this year ,probably Federer, maybe Coria, possibly Roddick, or even Safin/Nalbandian?? .

5-years down the track & Champions Race keeps the excitment to finish No.1 throughout the year; just when you think someone is going to run-away with it (a la Agassi 01 or Federer 04) then surprisinly they get bundled early in a SLam, another guy wins~ the Lead changes hands !
