Very simple equation.

- Roddick made the QFs last year, he lost in the 1st round this year.
- Hewitt made the final in 04 and lost in the semis.
- Safin lost in the 1st round in 04, and didn't play this year.

This means Safin had the smallest loss of points compared to Hewitt and Roddick and was able to take over their spot in the Entry Rankings.

Gotta love a system that allows a guy to move up 2 spots in the rankings without hitting a ball ;) :lol:

Well done Marat, what a star :p

Yep, Roddick will be back at 3 next week. Safin and Hewitt will be tied for points but Marat will be 4 because he has more required points (just).

Saving points from the last year is what makes the entry system so tough. If you won a tournament last yr u have to repeat or u lose points. :confused:

It doesn't make it any more tough than the race does, it's just a different way of looking at it.
