Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

It is not decided at all, the ATP official database randomly chooses a tournament to count. When you query a database and two result have the same exact parameters as to the query, both results being equal, the order of the display will be random each time the query is run. In this case, the query is run each Monday (or maybe when a player's tournament selection changes).

Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

With Rafa playing Basel his Vina del Mar points will be added to his countable tournaments if he loses before SF, right?

I see. Thanks. So it is not only possible, but also reasonably likely that the selected among the two tournaments will change after a week(or more).

Yes.
But not because of him playing Basel. He has already fulfilled the 500 requirement with Barcelona, Acapulco, MC and Beijing. It's just a matter of last years zero-pointer being dropped.

8th if you also count Rod Laver for the Open Era.

Appeal successful. Their penalty has been lifted.

Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

Just a question: how many points does Stan Warwinka still needs to defend this season, and what are the possible chances that he could be #7, for the year-end?

Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

One of the few errors still remained in the Live Race until today. The number of tournaments that are counted for the Race varies across the year depending on how many mandatories have been played so far. The figure was calculated relative to a player being in a mandatory or not, instead of allowing everyone to calculate an extra tournament when a mandatory was being played.

Example: Istomin was wrongly calculated by my system at 910, instead of 935 because he should have been allowed to count a 17th tournament after Shanghai was disputed. Correction has been done and you should see the correct values at the next update.

Just 90 points to defend ( masters 1000 Paris). Very tough battle for year end 7-10(Wawrinka,Federer, Tsonga,Gasquet) and Raonic is not that far behind.It is too close to call

I stand corrected actually. I revised the year end rankings and I noticed that the year end counts the DC final as well since 2009 without exception. The DC final of 2012 counted towards the 2013 Race, but not the 2013 YE Rankings.
