federer now has 3 0-penalties in his 500er ranking breakdown, the first one which will drop would be hamburg (25.07).
what will happen if roger plays dubai and monte carlo. will the points be counted for the ranking at the moment of apearance or later when there is space for? As I know it's a special thing with MC which is a master, but can be counted as a 500er.

_Chaz
01-08-2011, 09:47 AM
The rules state that a Penalty stays on your Ranking for 12 months so when he plays Dubai he will not be able to gain any points
in February.

But he can count them in July after Hamburg

On a seperate note

Come on Robin only one more win needed ;)

Would be funny if he wins Dubai and after Wimbledon only less than 500 points away from Nadal. He would overtake him then without playing anything that week :D

jimboy7
01-08-2011, 11:50 AM
silly rule! so if he would win both, dubai and MC e.g., then he has 1500 pts in his ranking which he can't use.
so in 2010 it would have been better for him joining in ill condition the tournament of dubai und give a w.o. in the first round. same in rotterdam, so that he could use free slots early in this year. the tokyo-penalty was unavoidable because he decided to play the stockholms 250er instead of tokyo.

hopefully he's not missing no 1 because of that

I think he can. He is allowed to count 2 of his best results from 250-point tournaments. So he has last year's Stockholm win and Halle finals. He can put Halle finals (150 points) into "non-countable" and count Doha win -- net gain is 100 points.

^^ I think Judio meant now that he's counting Doha and Stockholm, until Stockholm drops he won't be gaining points if say he wins Halle.

Important tournament for the Nr. 1 position. If Roger goes out early and Nadal far, it will be nearly impossible for Federer to regain that Nr.1 ranking anytime soon. However, if Nadal goes out early and Roger defends his title, suddenly he has a great chance in the coming months...

Nr.2 is also in play, depending on the results...

Well rafa has only 360 points to defend so even if he loses in the first round it won't be a hell lot of points lost, contrary to fed who has to win 2000 points!! I presume Even if he defends and nadal goes out in the first round, then their gap will narrow down only 360 pts, Nadal then would be 12030 to fed's 9245... So it's not like fed's chances of regaining #1 position are going to increase dramatically in any way!

According to judio's post There also would be a big chance of rafa doubling up the gap w/Fed Given their draw and points to defend!

2011 ATP Rulebook is now reflecting points changes that were implemented in 2010 e.g. 16 points for last round loss in GS qualies.

But... there's a change for 2011 - 70 points for 125K (=100K+H) challenger final. Not in ATP rulebook as expected :rolleyes:

Gil&becker
01-17-2011, 02:08 PM
If I'm correct, with this win against Cuevas, Gil is most certainly directly in Indian Wells and Miami, so he will play this two mandatory tournaments. I'm not sure if this is good news, since this means that he will only be able to play some challengers to obtain some needed points in the end of March. And by then, Estoril (150 points to defend) will be just around the corner... (repeated in Gil's support thread)

You are right. Simon should have 1210 points before the start of the AO.
He has now 1255 points after he won his 1st round match.

Not guarranttee for Indian Wells because the ranking will only be officially updated on Jan 31st. Indian Wells will use the ranking of Jan 24th but really it is Jan 17th

Yes, I guess you're correct. I miss-calculated (5 instead of 6 weeks) the acceptance list deadline. In that case, if afterwards he gets directly in Miami, it is impossible to guess what will he do the two weeks after playing DC for Portugal (on clay)...

Ok, I started watching tennis only recently (half a year ago or so), and I still dont understand one thing. If for example Roger won the AO last year, and wins it again this year, he will gain 0 points from it? How does this rule work? When someone defends his title it mean that they are only losing points and not gaining any, right?

Ben.
01-24-2011, 12:46 AM
No, he would gain 2000 points, it is just that the points from last year come off because points only last one year.

blank_frackis
01-24-2011, 12:52 AM
Basically, the ranking is determined by the points you've won in the last year. After a year those points are removed.

So Federer won the 2010 Australian Open, but those points will be replaced by whatever he does in the 2011 Australian Open. If he wins again he'll keep the same amount of points as he had going into the tournament, if he doesn't do as well he'll have less points.

Satasonic
01-24-2011, 12:59 AM
Ok, so if we say for example that if federer loses in the final to someone else, then he will only lose 800 points and not the whole 2000, right?

Ben.
01-24-2011, 01:05 AM
Well yes, but it is important to remember that all of the 2000 from AO2010 are gone. It would be the 1200 from AO2011 that are used to calcualte the points.

This.

Satasonic, this is why when tournaments start, Judio just takes all of the points from the previous year off of everyone, and updates them round by round with the new points, because unless the schedule changes, tournaments will usually come off from the previous year and go on for the new year in the same week.

Fed had a terrible season between AO & Wimby basically last season so he could potentially gain a fair amount of points..He went out early at Miami and IW where he should be able to make it deeper theoretically.

When we do such calculations we always assume the leading player (Rafa) will not play any tournaments and the other player (Federer) wins all until certain date. So theoretically there could be new number 1 on 9th of May 2011. Of course normally this date will move further in time after each tennis week. Probably Rafa is practically safe until after USO... That's just speculations.

No way, it has been diagnosed that he will be fine in 2 weeks. He will be perfect to play IW.

Care to provide any reliable source?

fed can return No. 1 after Madrid i think

Theoretically true.

Yes, there is a special rule in the ATP rulebook applicable for DelPo (injured for more than 6 months) called "protected ranking".

He will be able to enter tournaments using the average rank he had during his first 3 months of injury (rank #5 I think).

He will be able to use his protected ranking for a period of 9 months.

His protected rank is high (#5), but will not permit him to be seeded in the tournaments he will join.

he has 360 pkts of MC in the breakdown and 300 from rotterdam in the non-countable tournaments.
my question: if djokovic wins rotterdam, would he overtake federer because of replacing the points of MC 2010 (360) with the one of rotterdam(500), or will MC still stay there?
i know there is no must to play MC, because it is treaded like a 500-event.
but is there a special rule that MC if it's been played would still stay there like an other masters or will it be thrown away like a small 500-event?

If Djokovic withdraws from Rotterdam, as I think he would, what is the rankings impact?

a) He gets a 0 for Rotterdam which will count instead of DC points resulting in loss of 505 points

b) He gets a 0 for Rotterdam and since DC cannot replace a 0 pointer, Basel points will be counted instead of DC, resulting in a net loss of 205 points

c) No impact on his ranking points.

Thoughts? I am guessing option b).

For Djokovic to reach number 2 before Indian Wells, if I make no mistake, he must :
- first win Rotterdam to become number 2
- then win Dubai and one rubber in Davis Cup to defend it.

More likely he can aim at getting it in Indian Wells/ Miami where he has 35 less points than Federer to "defend".

He has already been given WCS to Memphis and Delray Beach

And he has used protected Rank to get into

San Jose and Indian Wells

Should be enough to get a decent ranking soon....

Del Potro's problem is that he was given zero-pointers for Hamburg, Washington and Valencia then until july (Hamburg's points going out), he will only be able to count one result in an ATP500 tournament (or Monte-Carlo) and two results in ATP250 tournaments

... unless he chooses not to take part in one Masters 1000 tournament (Monte-Carlo excluded).

For Indian Wells now we know that he chose to use his protected ranking then to take part.

Maybe he will choose not to take part in Roma (or maybe Madrid) to be able to replace that result with one more result in an ATP250 tournament, which are maybe easier for him, especially as he has problems with his movement then he may have difficulties on clay this year, comparing to hard courts.

Djokovic isn't playing the first round of Davis Cup.

"Meanwhile, Djokovic will sit out defending Davis Cup champ Serbia's first-round tie against India. "There is no need to have a player like him on the team," Zivojinovic said. "We can do without him against India. I have no doubt this has nothing to do with Djokovic snubbing me and refusing to play for the Davis Cup team.”

Well, the Davis Cup will be in Novi Sad, Serbia (birthplace of Monica Seles), so India should pose no huge threat to the likes of Viktor Troicki or Janko Tipsarevic. But it's also not likely to generate revenue the way a tie would if Djokovic were involved. Maybe that NTC will have to wait."http://blogs.tennis.com/tennisworld/2011/02/a-gruel-fate.html

more worrying if he doesn't fly to Rotterdam to make some promotion, he will get a zero-pointer there (then lose his 360 points from Monte-Carlo)
... unless his injury makes him out for 30 days and then he has to miss Dubai (and replace his 500 points there by 300 points in Basel).

Anyway he would be able to replace the zero-pointer later if he plays 4 ATP500 tournaments this year (for instance Dubai, MonteCarlo, Beijing and Basel) thanks to the rule which was introduced last year.

Welcome to the Wonderful Rankings World !!!

If you remove Soderling's Points he falls to 215 behind Murray

That is because he has replaced 2010 Rotterdam with a 95 Davis Cup Points

So to add Rotterdam 2011 (300 Points for reaching Final) he must remove the Davis Cup Points

Meaning he only gains 205 by reaching the Final

Meaning Soderling must win the event to have any chance of keeping Number 4.


Note: This is the only reason why Murray is showing up in Rotterdam so
that he is seeded 4th for Indian Wells.
He wanted a long break from tennis but couldnt risk the drop in ranking

You're right Judio :yeah:

I forgot to count the 95 Davis Cup points !

So, to be back at #4, Sod must win the tournament & hope for Murray to lose in SF
(or before SF).

If I am correct, if Sod wins, he will get 5955 points. If Murray reaches the finals,
he will get 6015 pts, and only 5895 pts if he reaches the semis.

Djokovic not coming to Rotterdam to make some promotion and probably not injured for 30 days and I guess he will play in Dubai, I think he will get a zero-pointer for his withdrawal (which means one less ATP500 result, so far MonteCarlo's 360 points).

But I guess he will be able to replace this zero-pointer with another ATP500 result later in the year, thanks to this rule :

e) Replacement Event. A player who has received a zero (0) point ranking penalty
for withdrawing from an ATP World Tour 500 event may replace the zero (0)
point by playing an additional ATP World Tour 500 event in that same calendar
year for a total of four (4) played. The replacement tournament must be after the
500 withdrawal that has resulted in a ranking penalty. Only one (1) additional
ATP World Tour 500 event per year may be used to replace an ATP World Tour
500 ranking penalty.

I know that Söderling used this rule last year to replace his zero-pointer from Washington after Valencia (also Simon for MonteCarlo)

However, it's not fully clear to me :

- is a top30 player allowed to one withdrawal like that as long as he plays 4 ATP500 tournaments in the year ?

- does MonteCarlo count as an ATP500 tournament for that ?

- what about a non-top30 player ? he also gets a zero-pointer for a withdrawal in an ATP500 tournament if he doesn't come on-site, but he doesn't have to play 4 ATP500 tournaments in the year, then how does the rule apply for him ?

- when is the zero-pointer cancelled ? when the player has played a 4th ATP500 tournament in the year, or when he has added one ATP500 tournament to his provisional schedule (since I think that the ATP asks a provisional ATP500 schedule to the top30 players in order to respect their engagement with the tournaments for a minimum of top30 players taking part) ?

All this is not clear to me, and watching how the zero-pointers are cancelled through the year, doesn't make it fully clear either as some zero-pointers may also be cancelled through appeal to a tribunal and we don't hear about this tribunal then it's not always clear why a zero-pointer is cancelled.

Andy is on record as saying he is not concerned with rankings, he wants to concentrate on winning matches, and then the rankings will take care of themselves.

fully agree, there's no reason to think that he's obsessed with this #4 seed.

Why did he come to Rotterdam while he was thinking of not going ?

we don't know, but maybe just because it was not the best way to do to "escape the problems" by avoiding the ATP tour, it's better being strong and just playing and winning.

When Agassi won Wimbledon just after three GS finals lost and a harsh defeat to Courier in RG semifinal 63 62 62 or something like that, it was totally unexpected : he just came, played and won, there's no other way than thinking of the present rather than the past. When Lendl came back from to two sets to love against McEnroe in RG84, the same : just thought of fighting and winning, and that did it.

the 500 rule is madness anyway. Gasquet will have a zero for rotterdam but does it replace a 250 result? Is it even part of his ranking points since he withdrawn before the draw was out? Is it a penalty event? Is it part of 4 ATP 500 knowing he has already played more than 4?

I answered you in the "live score" thread :

I think that he and Gulbis will not get any zero-pointer :

I would like an explanation about the rule of top 30: Gulbis and Gasquet are forfeit for the Rotterdam event but in 2 different ways. Gasquet was forfeit before the draw was released, so he was no more part of the player list, and Gulbis declared forfeit hours before his match, but being in the draw, is replaced by a LL.

My question is, do they both get a "penalty 500 event" which is a 0 in their ranking points, or only Gulbis?

I think both of them should avoid the penalty zero-pointer" : see page 138 of the rulebook :

b) On-Site Medical Examination.

Players who withdraw after 12 noon Eastern Time, USA on Friday (or in the case
of doubles, after the entry deadline) before a tournament shall not have the late
withdrawal fine assessed if determined to be unfit to play that week if:
i) The player who is still competing in a tournament or Davis Cup* after the
Friday 12 noon deadline is forced to withdraw/retire and is examined by that
event's doctor and determined to be unfit for the following week's tournament;
or
ii) The player is examined on-site, at the event from which he withdrew, and
determined to be unfit for play by that tournament's doctor during qualifying
or within the first three (3) days of the main draw for Challengers. Players who
are examined by the on-site tournament doctor shall receive tournament provided
hotel rooms through the night of the examination.

I think Gasquet is first case, Gulbis second one.

Who says Murray is obsessed with being #4, apart from Judio in this thread (and he hates Murray).

Andy is on record as saying he is not concerned with rankings, he wants to concentrate on winning matches, and then the rankings will take care of themselves. He has said it more than once - I can't quite remember when, but probably after being questioned about it the twice he dropped out of the top 4!
Here

Even a loss for Murray could still result in him overtaking Robin Soderling as the world No.4 if the Swede fails to win the tournament, but Murray insists that the world rankings are not something he is overly concerned about.

“You want to try and win matches and tournaments,” Murray said. “If you are doing that, then you are going to move up the rankings, so you try and focus on ways to win matches rather than ways to win ranking points.”

If you get a zero ATP 500 pointer

When you play the fifth ( includes Monte Carlo but NOT DC) ATP 500 (Including the one you got a zero), the zero disappears
If you do not play another 4 the zero will remain until 52 weeks after it was given
The Rules are the same even if you are "Top 30 " or not


yes I think it's like that (although I found no evidence about Monte-Carlo yet : I saw no case like that last year) ; as for playing the "fifth" one, it was confusing for me but it means that in the end you may have played only 4 ATP500 tournaments and cancel a zero-pointer in a 5th tournament - see Roddick for instance last year who cancelled his zero-pointer from Dubai after Basel having played Memphis, Washington, Tokyo and Basel.

As far as avoiding it in the first place
You do "a Federer" and just show up for an on site promo event
You do " a Gulbis" and enter the event and withdraw during the event before playing

As for appealing
You wait until 30 days later, do not play any events and it will come off, but only if you appeal

Otherwise you are stuck with it

yes but for the "Gulbis" you must be injured or ill then checked as unfit to play by a doctor in the tournament.

You may also do a "Gasquet" and withdraw from previous tournament after friday noon and have your injury checked in that tournament :lol:

There's also the rule "30 days off for injury" but I don't know when they validate it : they can do it as soon as they receive the medical prescription, I believe.

As for the "Federer" he did it in Dubai but in the end it didn't help him at all as he didn't play 4 ATP500 tournaments in the calendar year and then received 3 zero-pointers later, after Hamburg, Washington and Tokyo : for his rankings this year (it would have been a little bit less good last year however), a zero-pointer in Dubai would have been better as it would have disappeared this month and he would have been able to replace it with his next result in Dubai.

Anyway I think Federer did promotion in Dubai ... just because he's a resident from Dubai and had to do it for his good relationships with the city.

There was no cunning scheme. And how Andy could "steal" the position is beyond me. Apart from two short occasions he has held the #4 or higher for more than two years, I don't see how Soderling having it for a few weeks makes him the rightful owner for all time. At the moment he is, yes: those who get the points get the position - but that doesn't mean he has some sort of right to keep it forever.

I'm a bit confused when you say "You can count it towards the end of that year" though. Am I right in interpreting that as long as you have played 4 500s at any point of time without penalty zeros, and you have a 250 that is higher, you can count it?

n8
02-14-2011, 09:31 AM
It isn't a stupid question

At the start of 2010 they brought in another New Rule

If you are a Designated Top 30 Player
AND you fulfil the entry criteria for 4 ATP 500s by entering 6 weeks before and play them all

THEN if you have a 3rd ATP 250 which is higher than your 4th ATP 500

You can count it towards the end of that year

Players who switched were
Almagro, Youzhny, Querrey, Robredo, Simon and Cilic

Cilic has switched back as he lost 2 ATP 250 titles in 2011 so he is better off counting 4 ATP 500s

Yet another confusing rule. I'm glad Almagro can count 3 ATP250s but it's all getting a bit much. Extra thanks to Judio for keeping on top of it all.

Welcome to the top 20 Troicki! Not many points to defend in the foreseeable future so he should be there (or close to it) for a while at least.

As far as I know, the rule is not clearly expressed by the ATP about how long you can keep this third ATP250 result.

Then we have to guess as always :lol:

I don't clearly understand how Judio has guessed himself.

Personally I would have rather thought that the most simple way to understand this rule would be that they would be able to count one more ATP250/challenger until the end of 2011 year (I mean until the final ATP500s -Basel and Valencia- have been played). And I would rather think that Cilic will still be able to count a third ATP250 result if he gets one better than his lowest ATP500.

By the way, I haven't checked my file but I'm sure a few other players (Ferrer at least) than the ones Judio mentioned also validated the conditions in 2010 which made them entitled to get this 3rd ATP250 result : it's just that they didn't have a 3rd better ATP250 result than their lowest ATP500 in the end of 2010 but I guess that if they get one, they will be able to count it.

duong
02-14-2011, 10:26 AM
I have not guessed, I am using the Players that the ATP made changes to in October and Novemebr 2010

I assumed Cilic would change back which ATP confirmed the week after Chennai

There is no guesswork anymore, we should have no new players until October 2011(unless as you say Ferrer
loses all his ATP 500 points)

I didn't mean guessing about the names of the players concerned, I meant guessing about how long these players can keep 3 ATP250 results in their rankings.

I haven't seen it clearly written.

My guess (like you I think ?) is that they can keep this allowance until Basel/Valencia are played but what if they play too few ATP500s this year, for instance if one of these players gets a penalty zero-pointer after Beijing for having played only 2 ATP500 tournaments in 2011 ? or not correctly entered ?

I guess it would not cancel his allowance to count 3 ATP250s at once, they would wait until Basel/Valencia for that, but I'm not sure yet.

Because he Still has to Count 4 ATP 500s as he is an "Old" Top 30 Player.

He can only remove one 12 months after he played(or earned a penalty)

So in 2011 he must wait until after Monte Carlo and then Barcelona

before he can count a 3rd or 4th ATP 250

Djokovic, Ferrer, Verdasco, Davydenko, Melzer, Troicki (for Troicki the situation is a little bit more complex, as he is allowed to count 2 more results as he was not in the original entry-list for Shanghai and Paris tournaments : then his 4th ATP500 result had to be better than his 5th ATP250 result and not the third one)

until the required 6 week deadline

Ah yes thank you I wondered that there was one rule I didn't know which could explain that,

and definitely it's this one :yeah:

rather than what I said about withdrawals because if the withdrawal had been undue for instance for Monaco in Hamburg, we would have seen a zero-pointer in his ranking points at that moment

I have a question.

I know a player can apply for a protected ranking once he's out of action for six months. Is it six months from the day the player played the last match before the injury/illness layoff or from the day the tournament he last played ended?

I'm asking because JCF may return to tour in IW, which starts on March 10. The last match he played was on Sept. 4, during USO, which ended on Sept. 13. So, if he returns to IW, he will have been out of action for more than six months from the day he played his last match to date, but it will be three days short of six months if the rules say those six months must have passed from the final day the tournament he last played.

I reckon the entry deadline for Monte Carlo four weeks before the tournament this year too, which I think is March 14. If JC really plays IW, I hope he will be also able to use PR to enter MC because by then his rankings will be around #50 and not high enough for direct entry!

- the third solution ... bah for any reason they didn't give him the zero-pointer at once but will give him later, as it already happened sometimes (even though it's most usual the other way round : a zero-pointer cancelled)

- ah the fourth one ... he will skip Dubai :confused:

- fifth one : there is any other kind of arrangement between him and the ATP :lol: , maybe making promotion elsewhere than in Rotterdam would be enough ... but it's not what's written in the rulebook. But you know not everything is written in the rulebook : for instance the suspension for missing a Masters 1000 tournament has never been applied :shrug:

Raonic 45 now, 37 if he beats Fish

if Fish defeats Raonic, he will be number 14, his best ranking in his carreer (which so far was 16)

If Raonic wins the final tonight or picks up enough points in Acapulco, AND gets a wild card in IW, he'll be seeded, right? :eek:

It will be interesting to See Soderling's Ranking on Monday

His third Best ATP 250 is now 150
His fourth Best ATP 500 is only 95

Will he meet the criteria so he can switch the scores over ???

At the end of last year when some players DID switch, his 3rd Best ATP 250 score was only
worth 45 points
No, he didn't get the third ATP 250

Roddikc has lots of points to defend now :eek: Out of top ten again?

Sure looks that way. He has 3735 points with 1600 points to defend in IW/Miami. :help: He needs to win Delray Beach bad to help cushion the fall he's about to take. The way points are set up at 1000 events, there is really no way to defend even close to the points needed when you win or make a final, unless you equal it.

At least he'll keep his top 8 seeding for IW/Miami and hopefully he can get it back for Wimbledon. He had no clay matches last year aside from the FO.

Good news is for him that he has nothing too significant and out of the question to defend after that and good easily be top 10 after Wimbledon (maybe even before it).

Delray beach, DC with a cold :help: Better Withdarw from DC and try a clean start at IW. Something like QF, SF wouldn't be bad

Well I just looked up some stats:

Miami:
Since 2004 he has only lost before the QFs once and has won twice. He's made the QFs or better since 2006 (even has a win against Fed there).

Indian Wells:
In eight career starts, only lost before the QFs twice and has been to the SFs and beyond four times.

So even though he's obviously not likely to defend the majority of the points. Those two tournaments produce some of his best tennis so I don't think it's out of the realm to think he could make two QFs at least.

After that, he can't do much worse than he did for the rest of the year so I still think it's a high possibility that he'll get back into the top 10 at some point in the year.
