Marcos Daniel says players are unhappy with new ranking

The massive majority of tennis players in positions above the number 70 of the ranking are not happy with the change in the ranking system, imposed by the ATP, since January. This is what Brazilian Marcos Daniel assured on this Friday, in an interview to a TV station.

"So I thought about going to Madrid and try the qualifying from there, since it is a place I like to play, but it would be very difficult to enter and then I chose to play a challenger in Croatia," he said. "The players who have an average ranking are against the new system of ranking, because there is a big difference in points. The big challengers are very tough, with many good players, and gives 110 points for the champion but only 50 for the other finalist. Thus it is hard to climb up", he alleged. Actually, the runner-up gets 65 points.

Daniel also lamented the defeat on Friday against Italian Andreas Seppi. "I started very well, opened 4/1, but then he came into play, started to attack more and I was on the defensive. On the other hand, everything was equal to 3/3, then a number of breaks happend. It was a pity, because I didn't seize opportunities. At this level here, that is usually fatal. "

For him, the worst consequence is losing a possible spot in the main draw of Wimbledon. "I am very angry with myself because if I won today, I would be 99% certain to play there. It didn't happen, so I will try the qualifying of Roland Garros and see what happens."

Re: Marcos Daniel: "Players are unhappy with the new ranking system"

Why are you posting this?

Do you really think that this bunch of top-players asslickers, these disgusting gloryhunters care about the state of the tour for the lower-ranked players?

They only care about the top 10, 20. That's what happens when you're a loser in life - you need to transfer your insecurity to top players to feel a sense of accomplishment.

Re: Marcos Daniel: "Players are unhappy with the new ranking system"

What does him being brazilian got to do with anything. Talk about his point, if you agree with it or not. The rest he is ridiculous. He is no fixer, far from it, one of the most ethical players out there.

And about F1, the day Australia gets a victory, let alone 8 F1 championships than we can talk about something. Until than, good luck to Mark Webber.....

Yep, further fuel for the fire.

Really busy for the next couple of months, but I'll update my feature on the ranking system hopefully in time for the grass season/Wimbledon.

Re: Marcos Daniel: "Players are unhappy with the new ranking system"

Of course players should be unhappy, the new system severely penalizes challengers so it creates a ghetto system where lower ranked players cannot enter into the "masters 1000" events.

We need a system that allows guys like Ferrer and Davydenko to climb through but screens out guys like Pashanski.

Not very impressed this Glen. And rightly so.

We all knew how this new ridiculous ranking system was going to adversely affect players like Daniel, and it's good to hear him speaking out against it.

Do you get what Glenn is not impressed about?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

So what was he getting at, then?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

As long as you understand what he was getting at that is enough.
