Great win from Vinci, 2-5 down in the first set and took it 7-5, great fight warrior :D

It´s a shame that he didn´t entered Garros qualifying, he is that good to qualify for that event. Anyways nice that he is back :)

Do the players get any ATP points in this world team championships?

He did the right thing not entering the qualies in Paris, he hasn't had enough match practice.

There are points available for Düsseldorf now, he showed some very good form in patches.

He was up 5-1 in the 2nd, but got it done.

That's interesting. Does anyone know since when wins in this tournament count to ATP ranking?

I haven't been deep into ranking system, DC counts as well? :o I suppose since the beginning of this year, and it's connected with tnhe new system of ranking points?
