did Gasquet get full ranking points for winning Napoli?

The rankings came out before Gasquet won the final today. What happens then. It seems that both Gasquet and Starace got rankings for the losing finalist.

My question is important since the added points could make Gasquet be in the top 104 and free a WC for another Frenchman for the French Open.

I was thinking the same exact thing. I didn't understand how it was going to work. The points are really important for him to improve his ranking. I hope that they get awarded correctly. He's 109 right now with 396 points. Next week maybe?

He should get them this week, the ATP sometimes does midweek corrections when results are late and such. They updated the rankings late Sunday, so I wouldn't be surprised if Richard's numbers get updated before the week is over.

Good for him that he won two Challengers in a row. I hope this means he might be on the way to realizing his potential. He seemed to have so much of it a few years ago.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

I could be wrong but the final wasnt played until today and the rankings come out sunday night here in the states so therefore it will probably get put in this week if not then surely in the next rankings.

If they somehow forget to add his points, I'm sure Richard will have no problem reminding the ATP.

I don't think you need to worry about this, they will correct it. The points will be added to the rankings, and even if they aren't put in until next week, the French Open will be sure to use adjusted rankings. They aren't going to overlook something like this.
