If he would play there, he wouldn't be able to apply for the protected ranking.
I'm curious. Really curious.
If Greeniebach from Livejournal happens to be active on here too thanks again!
yes indeed that person is fantastic! this news has made me a tad happier now!

Re: Marat news and articles

Quote:
b. The Entry Protection shall be a position in the ATP Entry Ranking, as
determined by the player's average ATP Entry Ranking position during
the first three (3) months of his injury. The Entry Protection shall be for
entry into the main draw or qualifying competition or for special exempt
consideration.The Entry Protection shall not be used for seeding purposes,
Lucky Loser consideration or for entry into the Tennis Masters Cup.

c. The Entry Protection shall be in effect for either the first eight (8)
Tournaments that the player competes in using the Entry Protection
(excluding wild cards and entries as a Direct Acceptance with his current
position in the ATP Entry Ranking) or for the period up to nine (9) months
beginning with the first tennis event that the player competes in,
whichever occurs first.
So protected ranking is only for getting in the main draw?

Re: Marat news and articles

Uh oh. Well, doesn't matter anyway. If he's fit and really wants to play the results will come soon enough. I'm not worried about the RG seeding just yet.
