There were discussions about it in a couple of various threads and I didn't even remember where it was that this was being discussed so I just started a new thread lmfao
the question was whether the Olympics rankings points were an additional mandatory event (like GS and TMS) or one of the "best 5 countable"
Well I did a little digging and remembered that the CR went into effect in 2000 so Yevgeny's Olympic win would be in his results so I went to the cracker-jack ATP site and looked up his 2000 points breakdown and sure enough it's one of the "best of other countable" tournaments... so it's NOT mandatory... unless they've changed something for 2004 (which I haven't seen anything about it)
if you want to check it out for yourself lol
So.... this might entice more people to play and it would mean that Andy shouldn't have a problem with his Legg Mason points.
