Re: Montreal Entry List (updated August 1, 2013)

156mphserve

thanks for the answer on SE

what date do they choose as far as who is highest ranked player (entry for tourny, entry for qualies or current ranking)

and i presume that only those registered for the qualies would be eligible (which would exclude tursunov)

thanks again

they'll choose once Friday play is done. The highest ranked player will get it. And yes Tursunov is eligible even though he didn't sign up for qualies, weird rule but that's the way it works.

The winner of Tursunov/Matosevic will get it unless Dodig makes the Semis

as for what ranking, I don't know, I think it's the current one but you'll have to read the rules on that one. I don't remember

Re: Montreal Entry List (updated August 1, 2013)

from the rulebook

7.10 Special Exempts (SE)
A. Eligibility
Players may receive a special exempt into the main draw of the following week’s
tournament if they meet the criteria and apply for it in a timely manner.
1) A player is eligible to receive a special exempt into the singles main draw of the
following week’s tournament, subject to the provisions of this section, if he is unable
to compete in that qualifying competition because he is still competing on the
date the qualifying competition begins in another qualifi ed event, and his current
ranking as of the date of the entry deadline would not have otherwise qualifi ed
him as a direct acceptance on the original acceptance list if he had entered. In
addition, a player who is still playing a match at 9 p.m. on Friday (the qualifying
competition sign-in deadline) is eligible to receive a special exempt only if he wins
that match.
a) A qualifi ed event for special exempt to a ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament
is the singles event of another ATP World Tour Masters 1000 or ATP
World Tour 500 tournament.
b) A Qualifi ed event for special exempt to an ATP World Tour 500 tournament is
the singles event of another ATP World Tour 500 or ATP World Tour Masters
1000 tournament.
c) A Qualifi ed event for special exempt to an ATP World Tour 250 tournament
is the singles event of any ATP World Tour 250, ATP World Tour 500 or ATP
World Tour Masters 1000 tournament.
d) A Qualifi ed event for special exempt to a ATP Challenger Tour tournament is
the singles event of an ATP World Tour or ATP Challenger Tour tournament
within the same geographic region, unless there are no Challengers in the
same region the following week. If there are no Challengers in the same
region the following week, then a qualifi ed event would include all ATP Challenger Tour events scheduled in the following week, regardless of region.
(Defi nition of Regions can be found in Exhibit Q).
e) EXCEPTION: A player who has entered and been accepted into the qualifying
draw of an ATP World Tour 500 or ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament
and has been withdrawn because he is still competing, will be added to
the last position on the special exempt list of a ATP Challenger Tour tournament
scheduled for the next week, even though he would have been a direct
acceptance, had he entered the Challenger.
B. Number of Special Exempts
ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and ATP World Tour 500 tournaments shall have one
(1) special exempt and ATP World Tour 250 and ATP Challenger Tour tournaments
shall have two (2).
C. Selection of Special Exempt
1) If there are not suffi cient special exempt places in the draw for applicants, the
players shall be selected according to their position on the most recent Emirates
ATP Rankings list issued prior to the tournament or by their protected ranking,
as long as their protected ranking would not have qualifi ed them as a direct acceptance
had they entered. If their protected ranking would have placed them in
the main draw had they entered, then the protected ranking cannot be used to
determine a player’s position on the special exempt list.
2) ATP World Tour. If the special exempt places are not needed before the beginning
of the qualifying competition, the special exempt places shall be fi lled by
additional direct acceptances selected from the original acceptance list. Thus a
player may be pulled out of the qualifying before the fi rst ball is hit and replaced
by an alternate list player.
3) ATP Challenger Tour. If the special exempt places are not needed prior to the 12
Noon withdrawal deadline, the special exempt places shall be fi lled by additional
direct acceptances selected from the original acceptance list. If the special exempt
places have not been determined at the deadline, and then following the 12
Noon withdrawal deadline it is determined that one or both of the places are not
needed, the additional direct acceptance(s) shall be fi lled by the highest ranked
player(s) who signed in for the qualifying of that event, including those who have
preserved their eligibility.
D. Special Exempt Process
1) A list of possible eligible players is compiled by the player services department by
Wednesday/Thursday of the current week for the next week’s tournaments.
2) The list of eligible players is supplied to the supervisors where the players are
competing. The supervisors need to contact each player to inquire if the player
is interested in the special exempt position and then contact player relations immediately
following the player’s decision to remove himself from consideration for
any tournament for which he is eligible.
3) If the player is interested in an event, player relations coordinates with the supervisors
at both events until the SE positions are filled.

4) If the main draw is to be made before a potential special exempt player plays on
Friday, then such place(s) shall be drawn in the same manner as qualifi er, i.e.,
four qualifi ers (“Q”) and one or two “SE” depending on whether there are one or
two possibilities. Each of the fi ve or six slots are marked “Q/SE.” As soon as the
“SE” match results are known, either the “SE” or the next direct acceptance (if the
SE lost) is randomly drawn and inserted into the draw.
NOTE: Once a player has become eligible for Special Exempt consideration, he
must confi rm to the Supervisor or Player Relations staff no later than one (1) hour
following the completion of the match that qualifi ed him for a Special Exempt, that
he is applying for the Special Exempt position.
5) If a player does not fi nish his Friday match by the nine (9) p.m. deadline at the
qualifying site and subsequently loses his match, then he is not eligible to be
signed in for qualifying or for a special exempt; however, he may receive a wild
card from the tournament if it is known before the qualifying draw that he has lost
and that no special scheduling shall be required.
6) A player who does not appear after accepting a special exempt shall be treated
as an entered player and shall receive appropriate penalties.
Potential Special Exempt Playing at 9 p.m. Friday
Case: A player is competing in the singles event of a “qualifi ed
event” on Friday evening. If the player wins, he will be eligible for a
special exempt in a tournament the next week. His singles match,
however, will not be completed by 9 p.m. at the qualifying sign-in
site for the next week’s tournament. How does this affect the “composition
of draws” at the next week’s tournament?
Decision: The special exempt slot in the main draw shall be left
available pending the result of the player’s match. The qualifying
draw should be made as required at 9 p.m. unless it is prudent to
wait up to an hour for the match result. If the player vying for the
special exempt loses, then the unused special exempt place shall
be fi lled by the next player on the original acceptance list*. If the
next player on the original acceptance list is in the qualifying draw,
then he shall be withdrawn and moves into the main draw. The
vacancy created in the qualifying draw shall be fi lled from the qualifying
alternate list.
*For ATP Challenger Tour events, the vacancy is fi lled with the highest
ranked player from the list of those who signed in for the qualifying
or properly preserved their eligibility at that event.
Potential Special Exempt Loses: After 9 p.m.
Case: A potential special exempt player loses his match at 9:15
p.m. on Friday night and he calls the qualifying sign-in site requesting
that he be given a wild card into the singles qualifying competition.
May a wild card be given to him for the next week’s tournament
if the qualifying draw has not been made?
Decision: Yes. The wild card belongs to the tournament, which may
give it to this player as long as the draw has not been made and
no special scheduling is required because of the travel plans of the
player.Potential Special Exempt Playing at Midnight Friday
Case: Same situation as above, except that the player’s match is
still in progress after midnight. Does this make the player eligible
for a special exempt based on the fact that he was still competing
on the date the qualifying competition begins in another qualifi ed
event?
Decision: No. For the purpose of the rule, competing on the date
the qualifying competition begins shall be defi ned as: “Starting or resuming
a match as part of that day’s (normally Saturday) scheduled
program”. If the player wins the match, he is eligible to be considered
for a special exempt position.
Special Exempt Awarded if Player Is in Semis?
Case: A tournament has a Saturday fi nal and a player asks for a
special exempt after he wins his quarterfi nal match on Thursday. Is
he eligible?
Decision: No. The player must be scheduled to play on Saturday
when the “qualifying begins”.

I am disappointed not to be playing in Montreal next week. It is a great tournament with amazing fans. I look forward to competing there in the future.

No explanation from Fed? Maybe too worried about another early round loss before USO?

i see the 1st 2 replacements are dodig and andujar

i think the SE is between matosevic and tursunov

1 replacement left for fed - someone above said montanes is out so i'm guessing llodra

re seeds

besides the top 4
the other top 8 would be berdych, del potro, gasquet and wawrinka who get byes

Thank You, Wawrinka not the 9 seed anymore. I'm happy about that, but maybe because I'm too superstitious, last time he was the 9 seed he Frank drew him in round 1 and lost terribly
