Re: Basel Entry List (updated September 13, 2016)

Sadly I heard he can't ask for a WC here, since he used his last 2 allowed in Shanghai and Stockholm.

He'll need 8 more withdrawals to play.

Where did you get that info from?

Unfortunately I couldn't find anything regarding rules for Wild Cards...

Re: Basel Entry List (updated September 13, 2016)

2016 ATP Rulebook, p.100:

B. Limitation
1) Singles. Players may accept up to five (5) main draw singles wild cards into ATP World Tour tournaments during any ATP Circuit Year. Wild cards shall only count toward the annual limit if the player would have been a direct acceptance on the original acceptance list. Additional exceptions are outlined below.
a) Players who cannot participate in ATP World Tour tournaments and ATP
Challenger Tour tournaments for six (6) months because of a physical injury
may petition ATP for one additional wild card.
b) In the event that a player’s position in the Emirates ATP Rankings is insufficient to make him a direct acceptance on the forty-two (42) day acceptance list, then he shall be released from his commitment to that tournament, unless offered a wild card to the contract tournament within twenty-four (24) hours of the entry deadline. Such wild card accepted by a player shall not count in the player’s annual limitation of five (5) wild cards in singles.
c) Any player who becomes thirty-fi ve (35) years of age by December 31 of an
ATP circuit year shall be exempt from the wild card limitation if he is:
i) A former singles Champion of a Grand Slam; or
ii) A former singles Champion of the ATP World Championships, Tennis
Masters Cup or Barclays ATP World Tour Finals; or
iii) A former No. 1 ranked player in the ATP Singles Rankings prior to January 2000; or
iv) A former No. 1 player in the year-end Emirates ATP Rankings.
d) Players may petition ATP for exceptions to these limitations.

Sorry, you have heard wrong.

Here are the rules regarding the limits on Wild Cards:

Regulation 7.12.B.1

 


The 5/6 Wild Card limit only applies to players whose Entry Ranking was sufficient enough to be a Direct Acceptance at the entry/withdrawal deadline (42 days before the tournament starts). Entry Protection is not taken into consideration.

As the ER of Del Potro has been too low to be a DA, he as not used up any of his WC limits.

So far this season, he has received WCs into: Delray, Indian Wells, Munich, Stuttgart, US Open and Shanghai. If you include Stockholm - thats 7. This shows that WC limits dont apply to those whose EP would have been sufficient to be a DA.

EDIT: SKozak beat me by a few minutes again - grrr! :mad:
