it's like i could've said this aswell
i thought about what alexiana said, but what i think is: eventhough tommy didn't have points to defend, there might have been a player at #26(or 27), who also didn't have to defend points, but in stead of not playing, he got to the SF for example.
I don't know the difference between tommy & #26, but the number 26 could have won more points than the difference and that would cause a switch in ranking.....
right?! or am i talking really stupid now??
