Re: Can Federer use Protected Ranking at Australian Open?

Protected ranking is just to ensure a spot in MD, it is not a substitute for seeding.

Re: Can Federer use Protected Ranking at Australian Open?

He cant use PR to be seeded. Only to enter a tournamnet if his ranking is below the cut.

Can Federer use Protected Ranking at Australian Open?

Can he use a protected ranking, or is he going to have to deal with his 9-16 seeding?

What am I missing here?
I don't know who's saying what but I can assure you Murray can finish this year as YE#1. No doubt about that. If everything goes his way (Paris W, WTF W (with a 3-0 RR), Djokovic does nothing) he'll be #1 with a margin of 1810 points.

He can also be #1 after this week. He just needs to do 416 points better than Djokovic to reach #1. Murray F Djokovic QF is enough. Also Murray W Djokovic SF.


Maybe the ones you're referring to was commenting on what they thought was likely, not what is possible

yes.
definitely a shift compared to previous decade.
And some of them achieving their career highs in their 30s.

You are quite right average age in the top xx(x) is older than it has been in the previous decades. As for the future, noone knows. Average age went up also in the late 60s and early 70s. Then it nosedived mid-70s. We could get another nosedive in a couple of years time. Or we could see average age growing yet older, or stabilize where it is now. Your guess is as good as mine.

Since the DC final 2015 was held after WTF 2015 points gained there couldn't count towards the 2015 race. So they had to count for the 2016 race. Any result that gives you ATP points count for a race, question is just which one. Only exception is, of course, the WTF itself. Points gained there doesn't count towards any race. Hence the dropping of points one week early.

But being the best player of 2016 is about having the best results in 2016 and thus the 2015 DC final won't count towards that.

You said "won't be counted for year-end #1" which is incorrect. You meant to say "won't be part of the player's breakdown at the time of year end"

Nole has a 690 point lead, which will continue to grow until Nole clinches really soon.
