In terms of the race, rather than the rankings, if you pick up a 0 for two withdrawals, you are stuck with it, and cannot replace it.
That sounds reasonable, but I still think there is a mistake on a ATP Profile of Delpo, because Adelaide should be writen down not in "Non-Countable Tournaments" but in "Best of other countable tournaments". Otherwise it looks like he still can play one more torunament and count all the points he will gain.
