Re: Miami Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated March 20, 2010)

Are Wawrika & Youznhy going to be backed (they did not play Indian Wells) ? Any news ?

I wish they'd update the draw in the ATP challenge. I only found out those two were out when I went to check where they placed the qualifiers in the main draw. :rolleyes:

Re: Miami Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated March 23, 2010)

Is this tournament equal to IW regarding the ranking points? Could anybody explain me the contradiction between data from different sources regarding the points for qualifyers of Miami and IW who lost in the 2nd round of MD?
If we look at http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=156965 or page 1 in this thread we see the following:
...
R64: 25 (Seeds: 10)
R128: 10 (WC: 0)
Q: +12
Q24: 7
Q48: 0
Above scheme is from the official ATP Code (http://www.atpworldtour.com/Corporat...D6DFB60FB&_z=z)
It means for me that the losers of 2nd round of MD should receive 12+25=37 points. Right?
However, if we look at IW page on ATP site http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/T...intsprizemoney (Points&Prize Money) we see

R64 25 11,500
R96 10 7,050
Q 16
Q3 0 0
Q2 8 2,100
Q1 0 1,075
According to this scheme we have 16+25=41 points for above mentioned loser of the 2nd round.
If we take as typical representative of such losers, for example, Rainer Schuettler in IW, and look at his page http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/P...=2010&m=s&e=0# we see he received 41 points!
Why so? Thanks in advance for explanation )

Thank you for your attention. I've received an answer from SteveG (http://stevegtennis.com):

Re: points for Masters

From: "steve"

Hi Jacques,

Yes, this is odd. Perhaps recently, they changed it from 12 points to

16 and did not update the rule book. Sometimes they tweak it along the

way and it causes confusion. I have asked the ATP and am awaiting a

response.

The rule is this:

* 12 points only if the Main Draw is larger than 56
