Ranking Questions

Umm... Could someone please explain to me the difference between Entry Rankings and 2004 Leaderboard... there is one @ http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/raceleaderboard/
Roddick is #2 in the Entry race, but #3 on the 2004 Race Leaderboard. ?

Also, How do Rankings work?

Re: Ranking Questions

in short:

ATP race: based on the current calendar year (since january)
Entry System: based on the last 52 weeks

Re: Ranking Questions

Coria is number two in the race because of clay court results, it's likely that Andy will pass him on the hardcourt swing, although I hope he doesn't

Re: Ranking Questions

lol, I like it because Kiefer is ranked higher in the Race



BTW, for an old discussion ATP Race vs Entry System, go to the following thread
Question about the ATP Race Points - I think there is a mistake.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Re: Ranking Questions

Remember this. Entry Ranking (which is the one that really matters) = Champions Race points x 5.

You can only add points to the Champions race, based on your performace from January 1, to December 31. You can lose points in the Entry Ranking, however, if you fail to defend the results from the same tournament you played last year. Therefore, every player starts with 0 points at the beginning of the year in the Race...but players have a continuous Entry ranking that carries over indefinitely.

It's actually more complicated than that, but that's the gist of it.

Like father, like son

"For seven and a half years I've worked alongside President Reagan. We've had triumphs. Made some mistakes. We've had some sex...uh...setbacks."
George H.W. Bush, 1988

George W. Bush, 2000
