Trying to work out the ranking/points systems seems to be beyond me, but am I right in thinking that Marat will need to get to at least the quarter finals at Bercy to get seeded at the AO???
He could still play a tournament like Doha in January, couldn't he?
Anyway, as Marie pointed out, there are always withdrawals.
ETA: Plus I'm not sure he necessarily needs to make the qfs; it depends on how the people around him do.
