Verily, his selfless love for Marat knows no bounds. Or, as Marat would say, "Dima is our genius."

I just checked the entry list and sure enough, Marat is listed "@ 6" ('@' being the usual symbol for protected ranking), so he comes in 7 on the entry list just behind the real #6. Unfortunately this has nothing to do with seedings.

Re: Marat, fais-nous rugir de plaisir à Lyon!!!

rankings....seedings....i don't get any of this stuff anymore, espcially since they have the entry ranking system and the race thingy.

so, marat is 36 in the rankings system. and he's even higher in the race system, 31(whats the difference?). What does he have to do to get a seeding in the Aussie Open?

Re: Marat, fais-nous rugir de plaisir à Lyon!!!

entry ranking=ranking over the past 12 months, they add/remove points all year long, it's used for the seedings and acceptance lists

race=calendar year ranking, they start from zero and add points, it gives the name of the players qualified for the Masters Cup

At the end of the year entry ranking=race ranking (more or less)

and Marat can't be seeded in Bercy because he used his protected ranking (ie the ranking he had last year, when he got injured)
