New ATP rankings - how?

Can anyone explain to me how the ATP ranking system works? I was under the impression that it rolls along the calender year, for example, if you win Wimbledon one year you earn 2000 points, but if you do not play the next year, you lose 2000 points the next Monday. If this is true, Federer's points should have remained the same after his World Tour victory, as he had won it last year also. The rankings changed as follows (see ATP website)

21/11/2011
1. Djokovic 13475
2. Nadal 9375
3. Murray 7380
4. Federer 6670

28/11/2011
1. Djokovic 13675
2. Nadal 9575 (+200)
3. Federer 8170 (+1500)
4. Murray 7380

The ranking of Nadal, who lost in the final last year but did not even make the semis this year, has gone up, and Federer's jumped by the 1500 points he earned. I am probably missing something somewhere.

Re: New ATP rankings - how?

The WTF is the only tournament that falls off before the next one happens. From the rulebook:

The South African Airways ATP Rankings (singles) or ATP Doubles Rankings period is
the immediate past 52 weeks, except for:
* Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, singles and doubles, which is dropped on the
Monday following the last ATP World Tour event of the following year;

*Futures Series tournaments that are only entered into the system on the second
Monday following the tournament’s week.
Once entered, all tournaments, except for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, remain
in the system for 52 consecutive weeks.
