You need just to search the MD. Blake is not playing. He didn't get direct entry and couldn't play the qualies (title in Stockholm). And Massu got the last WC, so Blake lost Marca poll.

He hadn't enough ranking to enter in the main draw six weeks ago when the cut-off was made

I'm so happy for James' win in Stockholm, but really not happy about the six-weeks-ago cut-off system...I wish they would change this in the future...but ah well... :rolleyes:

I think the idea is that your ranking isn't likely to change that much over 6 weeks... And if, for example, you won a tournament to make your ranking higher then you'd most probably get a wildcard. If not its only a few more weeks you'd have to wait. So I don't think its a bad system, just didn't work out for Blake this time round!
