Don't forget, it's the ATP that awards points for all the tournaments, so if they decide to give Dubai GS rank, then they will. Obviously it will probably never happen but they do have the power to do it.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
