Vienna is a lower ranked tourney, after all.

He was supposed to play in the Qualie tournament, but was unable to due to his run in vienna.

Doesnt matter if it was a challenger or what ever, if he couldnt make the qualie draw due to a deep run in another event, he is granted a SE spot.

Okay, I didn't know about that. Theoretically he would also have gotten the SE, if he hadn't planned to play Qualifying, right?

I thought SEs only applied to tournies of equal tiers, too.

So ISG equals MS? What about IS and ISG?

here :p
a) A qualified Event for special exempt to a ATP Masters Series Tournament is the singles
event of another ATP Masters Series or International Series Gold Tournament.
b) A Qualified Event for Special Exempt to an ATP International Series Gold
Tournament is the singles event of another International Series Gold or ATP
Masters Series Tournament.
c) A Qualified Event for Special Exempt to an ATP International Series Tournament is
the singles event of any International Series or ATP Masters Series Tournament.
d) A Qualified Event for Special Exempt to a Challenger Series Tournament is the singles
event of an ATP or Challenger Series Tournament within the same geographic
region, unless there are no Challengers in the same region the following week.
If there are no Challengers in the same region the following week, then a qualified
event would include all Challenger Series Events scheduled in the following week,
regardless of region. (Definition of Regions can be found in Exhibit X).

Okay so you can get SEs for TMS if you're deep in an ISG and vice versa but not IS.

And you can't get an SE into an ISG if you're deep in an IS, interestingly.

Interesting. Thanks for the info, keqtqiadv.

No I think it means any IS event including ISG.

To sum up, you get SEs for tournaments of equal or lower tier than your previous tournament, with the exception of ISGs into TMS events.

I don't think we're disagreeing - if you are in an IS event, you cannot get a SE into an ISG tournament is how I read it.

So in the case of IS you can't trade up to an ISG next week but you can trade up from an ISG to a TMS with an SE.

Yes you're right. I mis-read your post.
