Let's hope Murray is seeded in the qualifying draw and makes it through!!
Does anyone know if ranking points are up for grabs in qualifying?
That's a good question. After checking I think this is the relevant (entry points) information:
Additional points in qualifying:
Qualifying Second First
Round Round Round
Grand Slams 8 4 1
and 15 additional points to any US Open proper points if you win all 3 qualifying matches and make the main draw.
In terms of race points you only get 3 (+main draw points) if you qualify. So qualification and a first round loss is 4 race points and 20 entry points. Hope that helps.
