Yes, youīre right, but if someone wins ATP tournament in his first appearance, that can be only luck (and itīs usually on small tournament, with weaker players). Itīs difference between tournament and TOURNAMENT. And since year 2000 itīs different situation than before, now top players must play chosen tournaments, before 2000 no tournament was mandatory (if someone didnīt want to play some Grand Slams, it was his problem, there were no ranking penalties for that, just simple counting of best 14 results from any tournaments in the rankings (I mean 90īs now)). But nice stats anyway
