i'll try but no guarantee the accuracy
i don't think it matters which tournament, as long as it offers ranking points to replace those that will get dropped. sometimes you hear players can't defend points because tourneys are scheduled in different weeks on the calendar... even no.1 positions were swapped because of that effect... and it used to be an embarrassment for the atp and that was why the race was introduced in 2000. now that we have a dominant no.1, the race gets thrown out of the window....:retard:
... sorry i think i digressed... that wasn't what you were asking
